At the time of this writing, the show's production has not yet unveiled the upcoming replacements for Wendy Williams.
In a previous announcement, Williams' team confirmed that her COVID-19 case is "no longer an issue" and has since tested negative for the virus.
Reason Behind Wendy Williams' Mental Breakdown
In the midst of her COVID-19 battle, the talk show host is also reportedly receiving psychiatric services.
According to early reports, Williams feels broken. She also struggled with addiction leading to her hospitalization.
Per sources who spoke to The Sun, the host's alcohol problems are the main culprit as she's drinking every day despite filming for the show.
Another big issue contributing to her spiral is Williams' issue with her ex-husband Kevin Hunter after he cheated on her and had a baby with his mistress, Sharina Hudson.
Williams filed for divorce in 2019 after being married for 20 years.
Wendy Williams' Battle With Graves' Disease
Williams has been open with her health problems, and she previously announced in her show that she's battling Graves' Disease.
She said that her medical condition is the reason why she has bulgy eyes.
Aside from the disease, she's also diagnosed with lymphoma, which causes swelling in several parts of her body because of the build-up of lymph fluid.
