“I’ve never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week,” she wrote on Instagram, seemingly suggesting that the medication is the cause of her slurred speech and behavior.

Days before the announcement, she explained why she frequently sits down during show segments.

“So it has come to my attention…that you all are noticing that I sit, a lot. I love to have several seats. I don’t just sit here, I’ve been sitting in the audience, I sit to do demo projects as well. You know why? Cause I want to,” she told the audience. “Cause this is my show, and this is how I want to do it. I bust my a** on this show, every single day.”

In 2017, Williams fainted on live television during her Halloween episode. She blamed overheating from the costume and menopause.

She also blamed her bizarre behavior on hyperthyroid condition Graves’ Disease.

Williams surfaced for the first time on Tuesday, Jan. 29 in Florida after announcing she was taking time off to focus on her health.

She is expected to return to the show on March 2.
