Fans of morning talk show The Wendy Williams Show may be disappointed to learn that the morning program's namesake has canceled tapings for the rest of the week due to health reasons. A spokesperson for the show told Page Six on Wednesday morning that Wendy Williams is currently "still experiencing flu-like symptoms," and has decided to focus on her health for the time being. This comes just a few months after Williams' fainting scare last November where she collapsed on live television during the show's Halloween-themed episode. On the most recent episode of the show, Williams also seemingly lost her balance during the closing credits, resulting in her falling into the arms of one of her audience members.
