Nick, How you doing?
As Wendy Williams continues to heal at home after suffering Graves’ disease complications, she is focused on being better.
On Monday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, guest host Nick Cannon gave an update on Williams, who “is taking a necessary, extended break from her show,” with audiences.
“I talked to her and honestly, she sounded amazing y’all. We jumped on the phone and first thing she said: ‘Nick Cannon, how you doing?’ ” said Cannon, 38. “Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect at first. But her spirit was so big, it was so amazing,” he said.
He also seemingly shot down rumors that have been circulating about possible marriage woes between Williams, 54, and her husband, Kevin Hunter.
Almost a year after she took time off following her announcement that she had been diagnosed with Graves’ disease, in addition to thyroid issues of which she was previously aware, the show announced Jan. 18 that Williams “is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being.”
Cannon said that the talk between him and Williams “got a little emotional” as he spoke on his own dealings with autoimmune disease lupus.
“I’m gonna say it like this: We gonna take the I out of illness and add we and get wellness,” said Cannon.
Alongside her family, Cannon is cheering on Williams as she recovers.
