On Monday, Wendy Williams seemingly addressed her behavior last Friday, after social media questioned her seemingly very relaxed appearance.
Before getting into ‘Hot Topics,’ the daytime talk show host stated, “I always say I love you for watching ‘cause I really, really do. I come here every day and I try to do the best that I can for you,” the host said on Monday. “I appreciate you watching, but even after all of these years, it’s still work. An effort put in for the hour I’m out here, you know? I guess every day is not perfect, but I’m not a perfectionist. I’m not perfect.”
She continued, “I do appreciate you putting in the effort to watch us, and I love entertaining you. You know? It’s not easy. It is not easy, you’re a tough crowd.”
After Friday’s episode, viewers commented on how Williams seemed to act a bit different from what viewers are used to seeing. One person on Twitter wrote, “I literally made a Twitter just now just to see if anyone else took notice to how high #WendyWilliams is on her show right now.”
Another added, “In my Marvin Gaye voice, what’s going on? My ex, a confirmed addict, [k]new immediately when @wendywillams was off the wagon last year…just saying. Something in the milk ain’t clean. This was hard to watch. #Awkward #wendyshow #WendyWilliams.”
If you recall, Wendy fainted on live air in 2017. In February 2018, she took a three week hiatus to deal with issues related to her Graves’ disease and hyperthyroidism.
In March 2019, Williams revealed she was in a sober facility. “You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past. I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don’t know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped,” she said at the time on her show.
