Viewers of “The Wendy Williams Show” are concerned for the daytime talk show host’s health after she appeared visibly uncomfortable during her show on December 20.

This isn’t the first time Williams’ on-air behavior concerned her fans.

The Wendy Williams Show

Just last October, Williams passed out while on live television. As Dearly previously reported, the host passed out because she overheated in her costume:

“I’m a 53-year-old middle-aged woman going through what middle-aged women go through, if you know what I mean. The costume got hot. All the sudden, right before passing out, I felt like I was in the middle of a campfire.”

Her symptoms later turned out to be the result of Graves disease and not menopause.

Most recently, fans became concerned after Williams began acting weird while hosting her December 20 show, just a few days after revealing she had fractured her shoulder.

As E! News reports, Williams “looked visibly uncomfortable and at times had trouble speaking.”

After learning about some of the concern, the host took to Instagram to release a statement explaining that she took pain medication for her shoulder before the show in order to push through.

To My Wendy Watchers, I sincerely apologize if you feel that today's show was less than stellar. I’m on your TV screens every day wanting to spread laughter, entertainment and cheer. As I reported earlier in the week, I have a hairline fracture on my upper arm, which hurts like hell. I’ve never broken a bone or experienced a fracture in my life. In the key place where the fracture is, and trying to scurry around and do too much, I am now paying the price. I've never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week. I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgement of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%. Not to mention everyone is aware at this point about my thyroid condition (don’t cry for me Argentina). For all my fellow thyroid sufferers, you know what the deal is. And for those that don’t: I encourage you to please read up. Needless to say, whatever today's performance was with the legendary The Lox, who said such nice things, I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care. I promise you a better Wendy in 2019. I will get some much needed rest and healing over these next couple of weeks. (Yes I am definitely juicing over the next couple of weeks). Sorry again. I love you all. Happy Holidays!

However, according to E! News, if you see Williams on the street she begs you not to ask her how she’s feeling.

She said in an earlier interview, that the question will make her “snap,” adding “I’m not that girl. I’m Wendy. Come on, now!”
