Talk show host and gossip queen Ms. Wendy Williams has gotten the clear from medical officials to return to work. For Williams, who suffers from lymphoma and other medical conditions, this is great news. According to reports, she doesn’t want to film a new episode until she is back in her purple chair located in her New York studio again. An inside source told Page Six, “there are no plans to resume at-home shows … If it takes a while, they’ll revisit it, but hopefully, it won’t be long [until they can get back in her studio]. She really is eager to get back to the studio. There are plans underway, but they’re waiting for guidance from the city.”

While another source told the online newspaper “She’s miserable. She didn’t like filming from home. She couldn’t even fake it.”

Williams recently returned to Instagram amid hiatus to give a huge shout-out to all of her fans who have been waiting for Season 12 taping.

Nothing makes me happier than being Wendy on ‘The Wendy Show,’ you know what I mean?I got the love and the boyfriends and all that other kind of stuff, I’m in my house, but what I want most is to be with you.”
