Wendy Williams returns to TV after Graves' disease diagnosis
Wendy Williams is back on TV following her Graves' disease diagnosis in February.

The 53-year-old television personality gave an update on Monday's episode of Good Morning America after taking a three-week hiatus from her talk show, The Wendy Williams Show, to focus on her health.

"It was the best prescription ever," Williams said of her break. "I met a full team that gave me a full work up."

"We as women, particularly if we have families ... we take care of everybody but ourselves. I'm not doing that anymore. Wendy first!" she added.

Williams, who struggled with thyroid issues prior to her diagnosis, said her health issues were "a perfect storm" that had been brewing since "late July." The television personality fainted during an episode of her show in October.

"I had missed three doctor's appointments with my endocrinologist. He's the one who handles the thyroid and the Graves," the star said.

"I'm functioning okay, I'm feeling a little weird but I'll get through it," she recalled. "And I went in February and that's where I found, whoa, your levels are way off."

Williams has hosted The Wendy Williams Show since 2008. She celebrated her return to the show in a post Monday morning.

"Grab a snack and come on back! #WendysBack #hottopics #wendywilliams," the star wrote on her official Twitter account.


'Will & Grace' revival renewed for a third season
NBC has ordered an 18-episode, third season of its Will & Grace revival to air in 2019.

Starring Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally, the show initially ran eight seasons from 1998 to 2006. It focuses on the titular, gay lawyer and his roommate, as well as their hilarious, but exasperating friends -- actor Jack and socialite Karen.

In 2016, the stars reunited as their iconic characters for an election-themed webisode, which went viral, sparking interest in bringing the show back and prompting NBC to order two more seasons of it.

Season 1 of the revival premiered last fall and Season 2 is scheduled to debut later this year. The second season has been expanded from 13 to 18 episodes.

"As far as I'm concerned, we can't get enough of Will & Grace and 23 more episodes is music to my ears," Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement Saturday night. "We're eternally grateful that Debra, Eric, Sean and Megan feel the same way and wanted to keep this good thing going. I'm overwhelmed by the euphoric response the new show has received from the press and the audience, and my hat is off to the unrivaled writing team of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, as well as the brilliant directing of Jimmy Burrows, for consistently delivering one of the best shows on television."
