"Wendy is still experiencing flu-like symptoms, and so she can rest up and get better, we have made a decision to cancel tapings the rest of the week", said a show's spokesperson on Wednesday morning (Feb. 14).
This follows what some saw as a close call for Williams on Tuesday's show where she seemed to almost fall.
African-American multicast network Bounce will air The Wendy Williams Show, produced and distributed by Lionsgate's Debmar-Mercury, in a day-and-date repurposing deal, the network said Thursday.
"I had to be talked out of not going to work today and taking off a few days to get myself together", she continued in the video, in which she's wearing a turban and a pink bathrobe. Referring herself to a "thoroughbred", she says she has always been hesitant to take days off work, even in her radio days. "Wendy could really do with a break, but she refuses to take any time off from filming [her talk show]". "What? No, never", she said.
Last October, Williams took a highly publicized fall during the taping of her Halloween-themed episode and accredited the mishap to overheating from her costume. "Everything we are looking at is bad news".
