Wendy Williams is back! The talk-show host returned to her “Wendy” set recently, just in the nick of time.
On Monday, Williams returned to her “Wendy” set for the first time since announcing she was leaving rehab. She told viewers that she was feeling great and happy.
“It feels good to be back here in my purple chair, happy to be back with you guys,” she said. “I want to thank each and every one of you who has sent me supportive messages on social media — especially those of you who have been here with us on this journey through the years … Thank you all so much.”
The talk show host also thanked her family members, including husband Kevin Hunter and daughter Dakota Hunter: “You know I love each and every one of you!”
“I want to thank everyone who supported me during this time,” she told the audience. “You guys helped me through a very difficult time. The fan mail and the messages I received while I was in rehab were so beautiful and heartfelt. They really touched my heart and made me realize how important it is to be nice to one another, especially in this world right now where there are so many people who could use some kindness and compassion.”

Wendy Williams is back on her purple chair after exiting rehab for her opioid addiction.
