Things are going from bad to worse for Wendy Williams.
On Wednesday, the polarizing television personality announced that she has been forced to push back the upcoming season premiere of her talk show, confirming as much just days after also saying she was suffering from ongoing medical concerns.
“While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19,” a statement on the star’s Instagram account now reads.
“To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover and to ensure that our production abides by all SAG/AFTRA and DGA Covid protocols, we expect to begin the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, October 4thh.

For the most part, vaccinated people who test positive will remain asymptomatic or experience a far milder illness than if they were not vaccinated.
The majority of deaths from COVID-19 — as high as 98 to 99 percent — are in unvaccinated people, as these vaccines are not meant to make one immune… but just to greatly, GREATLY minimize the damage this virus can cause.

Last May, the 57-year-old TV personality took time off from her popular talk show due to health concerns surrounding Graves’ disease.
At that time, a spokesperson said that Williams had been “dealing with symptoms from her Graves’ disease, which is causing fatigue” and that she needed to go on hiatus as a result.
In 2018, Williams opened up to People Magazine about the immune system disorder, explaining that she was diagnosed with Graves’ disease and hyperthyroidism 19 years earlier.
