Briana DeJesus Addresses Pregnancy Rumor, Has Final Word on Javi Marroquin

Is she or isn’t she?

Is the Internet about to explode or isn’t it?

Following several days of rumors about the state of her womb, Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesus aimed to answer both of these questions in just two sentences over the weekend.

Earlier this month, DeJesus got fans of this MTV franchise buzzing and wondering when she Tweeted the following:

“My life literally just took a turn just now and I’m like uhhhhhhhh what now.”

This clearly could have been a reference to just about anything.

But many folks out there took it as a reference to Briana being pregnant because… well… would that really come as a surprise?

The Teen Mom 2 universe has been especially nutty of late — with Javi Marroquin announcing girlfriend Lauren Comeau is pregnantTyler Baltierra often talking suicide; and David Eason and Jenelle Evans simply existing.

Considering DeJesus dated Javi for a few months and considering anything is possible between these two, one couldn’t help but wonder if the ultimate storyline was about to fall into the show’s lap:

TWO pregnancies, one baby daddy.

So… have Briana and Javi given us the sort of content about which celebrity gossip website can typically only dream?


“I’m not pregnant nor do I want to be,” DeJesus wrote on her Instagram Story on Saturday, concluding this short message with an apparent shot at Marroquin:

“Nor do I care about anyone from my past life.”

We’re just assuming this was a shot at Marroquin, that is.

Based on the timing of Comeau’s pregnancy, it’s safe to assume that Javi cheated on Briana with his ex-girlfriend-turned-current-girlfriend-turned-baby-mama.

bd update

DeJesus herself has hinted at this possibility, although she’s also claimed that she is thrilled that she isn’t the one carrying Marroquin’s latest child.

“I don’t really care what he got going on cause I’m just happy I didn’t get stuck in Delaware,” Briana previously said when asked to comment on Marroquin’s baby news.

DeJesus, of course, only joined Teen Mom 2 last year, following a brief stint on Teen Mom 3… but she hasn’t wasted any time in making a major, scandalous impression.

From dating Javi to feuding with Kailyn Lowry, she’s unafraid to speak her mind and unafraid to ruffle the feathers of those who have been on the series for far longer than she been a part of it.

She also has two kids of her own already:

1. A daughter named Nova who was born on September 9, 2011 and procreated by ex-boyfriend Devoin Austin II.

2. A daughter named Stella who was born on July 2, 2017 and procreated by some dude named Luis Hernández.

DeJesus doesn’t talk about either baby daddy much and is basically raising these toddlers on her own.

And while she appears to have bitter feelings toward Marroquin based on what she wrote above, she claimed the opposite to Us Weekly just a few weeks ago:

“I’m happy for them. I wish them nothing but the best,” she said about Javi and Comeau and their impending kid, adding:

“All he wanted was a family and he got it. So good for him. Like I said, I’m sending my best wishes and have no hard feelings.”

But is that ALL she said?

Samantha Bee Addresses Ivanka Trump Insult C-ntroversy

Last week, comedian and late night host Samantha Bee apologized after referring to Ivanka Trump as a "feckless c-nt."

Conservatives, still licking their wounds from Roseanne's cancelation and eager for payback, raised their voices online. Even Trump demanded Bee's firing.

On Wednesday night, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee's newest episode began with a cold open in which Bee addressed the controversy.

Samantha bee 01

During Full Frontal's cold open, Samantha addresses the camera and her audience with a somber tone.

"You know, a lot of people were offended and angry that I used an epithet to describe the president's daughter and adviser last week."

She referred to Ivanka as feckless, meaning that she is irresponsible, but that was not the word that had people up in arms.

"It is a word I have used on the show many times hoping to reclaim it."

In most English-speaking countries, the c-word does not carry the scandalous weight that it does in the United States. Clearly, Bee would like for that to change.

"This time I used it as an insult."

Generally speaking, you can't reclaim a word while also hurling it at people you dislike. She admits her error.

"I crossed the line, I regret it and I do apologize for that."

Samantha bee 02

For those who are puzzled as to why her description of Ivanka was controversial at all, Bee explains exactly why.

"The problem is that many women have heard that word at the worst moments of their lives."

This, folks, is how one describes a slur. For the LGBT+ community, there's an f-slur and a t-slur, among others. For many black people around the globe, that word is the n-word.

Naturally, people against whom a slur would be used are generally allowed to use it, as it does not mean the same thing coming from them.

But not all women are eager to hear the c-word, in any context.

"A lot of them don't want that word reclaimed, they want it gone. And I don't blame them."

She would never want to be part of making any woman relive the suffering of her past, whether it's from creepy catcallers on the street or from a toxic partner or family member.

"I don't want to inflict more pain on them."

Samantha bee addresses the controversy

Don't worry — even though this cold open was not really designed to entertain, she has some good lines.

"I want this show to be challenging and I want it to be honest, but I never intended it to hurt anyone."

Well …

"Except Ted Cruz."

Famously, Bee teamed up with Michelle Branch for "Goodbye Ted Cruz" after Cruz dropped out of the 2016 Presidential primaries, a spoof on Branch's classic "Goodbye To You."

Bee also acknowledged that women weren't the only ones who took issue with her use of language.

"Many men were also offended by my use of the word."

And …

"I do not care about that."

Samantha bee 03

Samantha laments that the episode that aired and its many important topics were overshadowed by four simple letters.

"I hate that this distracted from more important issues."

Among other things, Full Frontal writer Ashley Nicole Black's mother appeared during a segment of the episode that will probably never air again. That's so unfair.

"I hate that I did something to contribute to the nightmare of 24-hour news cycles that we're all white-knuckling through."

Every day is a… wait, she already said nightmare. Remember when checking Twitter was fun?

"I should have known that a potty-mouthed insult would be inherently more interesting to them than juvenile immigration policy."

Samantha talked even further about the issue of ICE separating children from their parents at the border, including asylum seekers who are abiding by the law.

"I would do anything to help those kids. I hate that this distracted from them. So, to them, I am also sorry."

You can really hear her adorable Canadian accent when she says soorry, there. But that's not the point.

Samantha bee 04

Before the (jokingly censored) opening music plays, Samantha Bee has just a few more words of advice.

"If you are worried about the death of civility, don't sweat it."

Her job is not to be polite, particularly not to those who are in power.

"I'm a comedian. People who hone their voices in basement bars while yelling back at drunk hecklers are definitely not paragons of civility."

But she reiteratest hat she regrets using the c-word.

"I am really sorry that I said that word."

She shares another thought.

"But you know what? Civility is just nice words. Maybe we should all worry a little bit more about the niceness of our actions."

Those are wise words.

Will Smith FINALLY Addresses Jada Pinkett Smith Divorce Rumors

It seems like no one can ever leave Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith alone. When it isn't those pesky swinging rumors, it's divorce rumors.

Will  has had it up to here with people speculating that his healthy marriage is on its last leg.

So he's slamming haters and speculators in a new rap. Take a look!

Will smith and jada pinkett smith red carpet pic

You may not be aware, but Will Smith appears to be some sort of social media savant. He's a natural.

This is, suffice it to say, unusual in his age demographic. Will is 49.

But as much of a delight as he is on Instagram, it's a new YouTube video that he shared this week that has our attention.

It has been 13 years since his last album, Lost and Found.

But now he's giving fans a preview of his new song, "To the Clique."

Will smith at concussion premiere

In the video, Will raps:

"20 years of swag y'all just witnessed, let me remind everybody who Will Smith is."

Sometimes, people need a reminder of who you are and why you are so famous.

Fans on Twitter were especially amused by one line in particular.

"Rappers make it rain; if I throw my money up, s–t, I'd probably kill a stripper."

What has people's attention isn't an apparent joke about killing a sex worker.

Rather, people love the reference to Will's hard-earned wealth.

Jada pinkett smith and will smith 2nd annual diamond ball

But it is one line in particular that has the attention of those who have heard rumors about his marriage.

"20 years of swag y'all just witnessed, stop the divorce rumors and mind your damn business,"

You know what? That is a very, very fair line.

Will and Jada have been married since December 31, 1997.

People born on that day are almost old enough to drink (legally).

In regular marriage years, that is a very long time to be married. In Hollywood years, they may as well have been married for centuries.

20 years of swag is right. Dang.

Fresh prince of bel air cast reunites

It's been a little more than a year since the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cast reunion.

But that series was very early in Will's career.

Since then, how many blockbusters has he had? How many other films — like the gripping biopic, Concussion — has he poured his considerable talents into for the right reasons?

He has a lot of reason to brag.

His marriage to the gorgeous and talented Jada Pinkett Smith is just one of those.

Their entire family is a national treasure.

The smiths at the oscars

There are a lot of bad parents in the world, and that includes celebrities.

But Will and Jada just seem to get things right. It's no wonder that their children are so amazing and creative and such beautiful souls.

Recently, Willow Smith admitted to her mother that she had struggled with self-harm in the past.

Jada responded with calm and compassion. She's a role model for other parents out there who might overreact in a way that discourages their children from coming to them with other problems.

The freedom that Will and Jada have given their childen to be themselves has halped them to be extraordinary human beings.

It's no wonder that Will name-drops his wonderful family in "To the Clique."

Nev Schulman Addresses Sexual Harassment Charges as New Details Emerge

Earlier this week, fans of the popular MTV series Catfish were stunned by allegations of sexual misconduct directed at Nev Schulman, the show’s affable creator and host.

It wasn’t the first time that Schulman was accused of behaving inappropriately with a member of the opposite sex, but for many Catfish viewers, the news was shocking nonetheless.

After all, Schulman has made a career of being an advocate for vulnerable people – women, more often than not – who have been mistreated in the context of romantic relationships.

For many, to think that he would be capable of taking advantage of a power imbalance and harassing a woman who trusted him would be tantamount to admitting they’ve been fooled.

At first, details about the allegations against Schulman were somewhat hazy, but today, the 33-year-old addressed the situation for the first time as new information about the charges against him became public.

Though she has not yet confirmed that she is the accuser, several media outlets have identified Ayissha Morgan as the woman who lodged the complaint against Schulman.

Morgan appeared on a 2015 episode of Catfish, and she has since uploaded several YouTube videos detailing the mistreatment she allegedly suffered at the hands of one of the show’s hosts.

“I don’t think you’re a lesbian,” Morgan recalls the host saying.

“I was like, ‘Oh why do you feel that way?'” she says in one of her videos.

“And he was just like, ‘Because I just feel like you haven’t met the right guy yet. Do you think I’m attractive? Have you ever had sex with a guy?'”

Morgan says that when she replied in the negative, the host responded:

“Well I think you should try it, I have a big dick, I would tear your ass up.”

Schulman has issued a statement denying that any such conversation ever took place:

“The behavior described in this video did not happen and I’m fortunate that there are a number of former colleagues who were present during this time period who are willing to speak up with the truth,” he writes.

“I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions — but these claims are false.”

An anonymous source has corroborated Schulman’s claims, telling E! News:

“The videos include a lot of things are that are disprovable, including the timeline and specific production details. The behavior she describes is inconsistent with Nev.”

Currently, production on Catfish is indefinitely suspended as MTV investigates the allegations against Schulman.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.


Tori Roloff Finally Addresses Those Pesky Pregnancy Rumors

Tori Roloff has already celebrated three birthdays this month:

Her own. Her husband’s. And her son’s.

However, Little People, Big World fans around the Internet have been wondering for weeks now whether a different sort of birthday is about to arrive in the near future.

A literal day of birth, we mean.

As in: They want to know if Tori is pregnant again!

For reasons that sometimes seemed understandable and other times seemed like a major stretch, social media users have interpreted various Roloff photos of late to mean she’s expecting.

In late April, for example, Tori lay on a blanket alongside son Jackson Kyle and placed her hands on her belly and… that was it.

Pregnancy speculation ran wild as a result of this photo.

Prior to that picture-uploading, Tori asked fellow mothers about the pain she experienced while breastfeeding.

And because this can be a sign that one has a child in one’s womb, folks once again jumped to that hopeful conclusion.

And then there was the most outlandish basis of all for thinking Tori was pregnant for a second time, one we documented in the photo gallery below:

Still, it is true that Tori has made clear she wants to have more kids.

She cannot stop gushing over little Jackson; or over the amazing way in which husband Zach is a father.

Yes, Jackson only just turned a year old, meaning she would have gotten pregnant VERY soon after giving birth if she were already knocked up.

But crazier things have happened, right? Perhaps she wants her kids to be very close in age?

Perhaps she does… but not this close in age, Tori has finally made clear.

She just jumped on Instagram and acknowledged the chatter circulating about her belly.

Based on this photo alone, some people think Tori Roloff is pregnant.

In an Instagram Story clip of her son crawling across her lap, Tori takes note of her stomach, realizes some followers may think it’s large for a very specific reason and says the following:

No I am not pregnant. That is just my burrito from yesterday. Kthanksbye.

Ah, well… okay then! That settles that debate!

As mentioned above, we’d be very surprised if Zach and Tori do not expand their family at some point.

But they are 27 years old and have an infant at home. What’s the rush?

Until she does have a second pregnancy announcement to make, Roloff is as content as possible to fawn over her son.

And we can’t blame her: Jackson is SO very adorable!

“I love you so much bud,” Tori wrote as part of a tribute to her son on his first birthday, adding:

“This year has gone by way too fast. You bring me such happiness and you have spoiled me as your mom.”

Check out precious photos of Jackson below, but be warned:

We sort of adore this child and may have gotten carried away! There are LOTS of photos!


Kylie Jenner Bodyguard Actually Addresses Stormi Paternity Rumor

Tim Chung would like to have a few words with the Internet.

Who, some of you may be wondering?

Tim Chung, the heretofore unknown bodyguard of Kylie Jenner who has become an Internet sensation of late for two reasons:

1. He’s very attractive.

2. He may be the biological father of Kylie’s daughter, Stormi Webster.

And, yes, we know what you’re thinking:

Wait, isn’t Tyga the biological father of Kylie’s daughter, Stormi Webster?!?

LOL, just kidding. (Even though this was also a rumor that spread around the Internet shortly after Kylie gave birth to her first child.)

For whatever reason, folks simply refuse to accept that Travis Scott is the person who impregnated Jenner…

… despite the rapper’s lengthy relationship with the star and despite photos of him at the hospital on the day Jenner became a mother.

They really think Tim Chung is the dad.

Is there any evidence behind this claim? Any rational reason to hold this belief?

Not really. Not at all, actually. But whatever, right?!? It’s fun to consider!

Not if you’re Tim Chung it isn’t.

This chatter has grown so strong and so loud that Chung actually issued a statement on Instagram in response to the rumor.

And he confirmed it!!!

Just kidding again.

“I am a very private person and would normally never answer to gossip and stories that are so ridiculous that they are laughable,” he wrote online, adding of this wild speculation:

“Out of deep respect for Kylie, Travis, their daughter together and their families, I would like to set the record straight that my interactions with Kylie and her family have been limited in strictly a professional capacity only.”

So he never got himself all up in there?

Not once?

“There is no story here and I ask that the media no longer include me in any narrative that is incredibly disrespectful to their family,” the bodyguard concluded.

chung state

Chung also said as a caption to the above screen capture that this will be his “first and last comment” on the topic.

Which we understand.

We can see how this has been an awkward situation for him to navigate, especially when his attention is supposed to simply be on keeping Kylie safe.

His defensive statement comes shortly after Instagram users flooded social media with side by side photos of Chung and Stormi to point out the resemblance they saw between employee and the three-month old.

During this same time period, Kylie and Scott made their red carpet debut as a couple, posing as follows at the 2018 MET Gala.

They don’t look like two people overly concerned with this rumor, do they?

But it took on a (funny!) life of its own over the past week, forcing Chung to step up and address it at last.

Still, even if he didn’t have sex with Kylie, it seems as if Chung could now have sex with, like, any single woman on the Internet.

One Twitter user recently looked at his photo and wrote:

“Whoooo is Kylie Jenner’s bodyguard AND WHY IS HE SO FINE.”

Another added: “Sorry I was late to work, I was busy reading about Kylie Jenners bodyguard on twitter.”

So don’t feel too bad for Tim Chung that he’s been at the center of this ongoing storm.

Dude is gonna be just fine in the end.


Blake Shelton Addresses His Cryptic Karma Tweet: Here’s the Deal …

Recently, Blake Shelton shaded ex Miranda Lambert in a subtweet. He seemed to be gloating over her recent bad press.

He's gotten a fair amount of backlash over it, but he's never actually confirmed that his tweet was about Miranda.

In the video below, he's asked directly. And he gives a very blunt answer.

The tweet, of course, read:

"Been taking the high road for a long time."

That's debatable, but whatever.

"I almost gave up. But I can finally see something on the horizon up there!!"

It is then that he shares that he believes that someone is getting what they deserve.

"Wait!! Could it be?! Yep!! It's karma!!"

That tweet was almost universally interpreted as a dig at Miranda Lambert, after it was revealed that she was dating a married man.

As you will see in the video below, E! caught up with Blake Shelton and asked him about the tweet.

At first, he replied:

"I don't care what …"

He then trailed off, as if thinking better of whatever he had been about to say.

Which was probably smart.

But then … his fellow The Voice coach, Kelly Clarkson, decided to chime in.

Clarkson eagerly tells the interviewer:

"You have to know, y'all: Blake just loves stirring the pot — even if there's nothing to stir!"

Some people like to create chaos just to see what the reaction is.

Kelly says that Blake will instigate things between her and Adam Levine for his own capricious enjoyment.

"He will literally start a fight between me and Adam out of nothing."

Here, she employs a strange analogy.

"He just enjoys to sit back and watch — and people take off like little ants! Y'all are playing into it. You are playing into it!"

We suppose that we've seen ants behaving frantically, but that is not the first comparison that comes to mind for frenzied speculation and drama.

Blake, after watching with amusement as Kelly exposes him as a drama instigator, does eventually decide what he wants to say.

"Look, here's the deal: If I meant for people to know what I was talking about, I would have said what that thing was."

We told you that he was blunt.

"I'm not gonna stand here and talk about it."

Even though he is literally standing there and talking about it.

"All I'll say is it's amazing to see people turn it into what they want it to be, even if it doesn't even make sense in that context."

So that's … super vague.

Kelly then reminds him:

"You like to stir that pot!"

Miranda Lambert was with a man named Jeff Allen before she ever hooked up with Blake. Also, allegedly while she first hooked up with Blake.

Which, among other cheating rumors, doesn't give Blake a lot of moral high ground.

Allen's response to that subtweet about karma was to blast Blake as a lying, cheating SOB.

He later deleted the tweet, but he clearly wasn't amused by Blake's gloating.

We doubt that he's amused by Blake "stirring the pot," either.

Take a look at the video and decide what you think of Blake's "explanation."

Catelynn Lowell Addresses Haters: Mental Illness Does NOT Make Me a Bad Mom!

Over the course of the past 18 months, Catelynn Lowell has checked into rehab three times.

Sadly, she’s taken a fair bit of flak from insensitive fans as a result of her struggles with mental illness.

While it certainly wasn’t her intention when she first decided to seek help, Catelynn has become a sort of spokesperson for young mothers struggling with mental health issues.

Most have applauded Lowell for her willingness to share her struggle with Teen Mom OG fans.

But as is always the case in 2018, haters have come out of the woodwork with the apparent goal of raining on Lowell’s parade.

Fortunately, Cate has no patience for their trash-talk:

“You’re not the only parent struggling with mental health issues,” a Twitter user wrote this week.

“I am a single parent with mental health issues BUT, I still have to provide for my family and be there when my children need me.”

Catelynn was quick to clap back by pointing out that in seeking treatment, she was doing what was best for her family:

“I wasn’t ‘running away from my problems. I was FIXING them! Working HARD & getting on the right medication,” she tweeted.

“I wouldn’t wish this crap on my worst enemy! But I guess I’ll have haters no matter what! Just glad I got myself better and if ppl r mad then be mad I guess.”  

Catelynn further confirmed that her health is on the upswing these days by posting the photo below on Instagram:

“I love you so much!!!” she captioned the pic, in apparent tribute to her husband, Tyler Baltierra.

“And for all you haters vows say —in SICKNESS and in health . . . remember that . . . Because this man has done that for me beyond what could imagine.”

We’re sure Catelyn understands the frustrations of moms who are struggling but can’t afford in-patient treatment.

But at the end of the day, she’s making no apologies for taking steps to ensure her own health and the happiness of her husband and daughter.

Watch Teen Mom OG online for more of Catelynn’s courageous struggle.


Meri Brown Finally Addresses Sister Wives Future: Is She Outta There?

You’ve likely been hearing the rumor for months.

But will it soon become a reality?

Will Meri Brown get up and walk out on Kody Brown, following endless chatter that the end of this relationship is both near and inevitable?

Meri herself has finally decided to address this long-gestating piece of gossip.

Consider what she wrote on Sunday night in response to what folks were talking about on Twiter:

Already starting the night with a blocking spree! Come on guys, I have a family, I’m not bailing! Sheesh!! #SisterWives

Oh, so there we go. Simple enough, we guess.

meri message

Concerns of Meri and Kody Brown’s romance for back a very long time.

Back in 2015, Kody filed to divorce Meri so that he could make Robyn is lone official wife.

Meri, however, remained very much in the picture; she was simply demoted from the status of Lead Wife in This Very Unusual Family.

Then, in May of 2016, Meri found herself at the center of one of the more unexpected celebrity scandals in recent memory, as she flirted hard with a man she met online.

Or at least she thought it was a man she met online.

She later learned that she had been catfished (that is, fooled and lied to) and that she had really been in contact with a woman who she met on the Internet.

This was pretty darn awkward for all involved, not just due to the whole catfishing thing — but because Meri was seemingly out there, looking for love.

TLC, meanwhile, has teased various seasons of Sister Wives by hinting that break-ups and walk-outs were imminent.

This arrangement always seems on the verge of falling apart.

In December of 2016, however, Meri did assure Twitter followers that anything you hear from someone outside the family is “probably a lie.”

Probably, though.

That does leave some wiggle room, doesn’t it?

On the last season of Sister Wives, Meri and Kody attended therapy together in an attempt to move past the catfishing scandal and save their relationship.

In one emotional episode, Kody confronted Meri’s complicated situation and told her:

“You didn’t want to be out of the family, you just wanted to be out of your relationship with me.”

So now you can see where those Meri-Kody breakup rumors come from, right?

We aren’t just making them up, people!

One glance through Meri’s Instagram page does reveal a seemingly content individual, however.

It may very well be that TLC and the Browns themselves perpetrate these sorts of rumors in order to make headlines and remain relevant.

It wouldn’t exactly be the first time a reality television show did such a thing, would it?

Either way, we’ll continue to keep an eye on the many relationships of Kody Brown and report back if or when any does finally come to an end. 


Wendy Williams Addresses Health Concerns: My Body Was a “Mess”

Wendy Williams doesn’t want your sympathy.

But she does want your attention.

The controversial talk show announced on February 21 that she would be taking a three-week leave of absence due to a diagnosis of Graves Disease.

This is an autoimmune disease that leads to a generalized overactivity of the thyroid gland and is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism in the United States.

It’s a pretty serious illness.

We aren’t very big fans of Williams because he entire career is predicated on tossing out one uneducated and cruel hot take after another…

… but we don’t wish any physical hard on her or anything.

We were glad to hear on Good Morning America today that she’s set to return to the air and is feeling better these days.

Being able to recuperate for those three weeks was the “best prescription ever,” Williams explained to Amy Roach, admitting that were “levels were way off” before this break and she could feel it.

This doesn’t mean Williams was thrilled to learn she had to take almost a month off of work, however.

“I cried and then I laughed,” she recalled of being informed of this news. “[I told the doctor,] ‘Are you out of your mind? It’s sweeps.'”

She quickly learned, though, that she was “very deficient of vitamin D,” the worst her physicians had even seen in fact, and really had no choice in the matter.

“There’s was just a mess going on inside my body,” she explained.

Armed with a renewed focus on her health, Williams also says she has learned some valuable lessons from this ordeal; both for her gender and for herself, personally:

“We, as women, particularly if we have families, you know, we’re taking care of children, we’re taking care of our home, our husbands, we take care of everybody but ourselves.

“I’m not doing that anymore, Amy. Wendy first!”

And despite appearing on national television to discuss her disease, Williams does NOT want anyone feeling sorry for her.

Not at all.

Not even a little bit.

“When I see you in the streets, the grocery store, don’t ask me with the woo-woo-woo and the the puppy eyes,” she said, making it clear she’s not here to host any pity parties and adding:

“Then I’m going to snap.”

Jerry O’Connell has been filling in as a guest host on Wendy’s absence, but Williams admits she’s only tuned him to see him in action on two occasions.

She says it was simply too painful because she wanted to be the one in the purple chair so badly.

“Wendy is a true champion and has never missed a day of work. But her health and well-being must be put before all else,” a rep for the show said via statement last month, adding:

“Wendy has been openly dealing with her Graves’ disease for many years in addition to hyperthyroidism.

“Yesterday, Wendy’s doctor prescribed a necessary three weeks of rest to get her levels and medication in sync.”

Now that time is over, however, and Williams can go back to saying really dumb and mean things.
