Early in the morning, Good Morning America will air a recent interview with Williams that marks her first interview since taking a leave of absence.
Wendy Williams made her return to her eponymous daytime talk show on Monday.
Wendy Williams is back on TV following her Graves' disease diagnosis in February. "We as women. We take care of everyone but ourselves", she revealed on GMA. She further quipped, "Like I'm constantly high - but not high". She finished the show and returned the next day saying her tests came back fine.
Williams, 53, wiped away tears as she expressed her gratitude for the fans and crew members who have stuck with her throughout her fight with Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism. I had a storm going in my body is the best way I can explain it.More news: Halting US Military Intervention in Venezuela

"In the entire nearly 10 years of doing the show, I have never taken a sick day", Williams told Robach.
"I cried. And then I laughed", Williams recalled of how she responded to her physicians' recommendation that she take time off to recover. After experiencing what she thought were "flu-like symptoms" and fainting on live TV in October 2017, her doctor prescribed her three weeks of rest. "Wendy has been openly dealing with her Graves' disease for many years in addition to hyperthyroidism".
Williams announced her temporary hiatus from the show last month after her doctor recommended she take three weeks off to handle her health issues. "I can't believe that I got up after the commercial break and closed out the show". "Yesterday, Wendy's doctor prescribed a necessary three weeks of rest to get her levels and medication in sync". I'm also going through menopause, ' explained Williams.
Williams shared that she canceled appointments with an endocrinologist to attend work meetings and said she was nervous to learn what was wrong with her. Jerry O'Connell took over the role as host while Williams focused on her health. "But her health and well-being must be put before all else", a rep for the show told Us Weekly in a statement in February. "My son Kevin and also my husband Kevin [Hunter], the love of my life", whom she credits with saving hers.
