A post shared by Wendy Williams (@wendyshow)

This after a post was shared to Instagram in September stating the host is recovering from a breakthrough case of COVID-19 and is 'dealing with ongoing health issues and undergoing further evaluations'.

A case is described as "breakthrough" when a person is fully vaccinated but still gets infected with COVID-19.

Last year, Williams also took a break from the show while dealing with Graves' disease.
