While Wendy Williams is away recuperating during her “extensive break” from her “The Wendy Williams Show,” Nick Cannon will fill her shoes.
According to Deadline, the MTV’s “Wild ‘n’ Out” host has been announced as the host of the show on Monday, February 4, Tuesday, February 5 and Wednesday, February 6.
Wendy had previously shared that she’s suffering from Graves’ Disease, an auto-immune thyroid disorder.
Nick Cannon will host the show as it returns to originals after airing reruns for a while.
“Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment,” a recent statement from her show read. “Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital.”
“Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being,” the statement concluded. “Wendy thanks everyone in advance for their well-wishes and for respecting her and The Hunter Family’s privacy during this time.”
Viewers became concerned about Williams’ health in 2017 after she fainted during her show.
