As Radar previously reported, the 57-year-old talk show host had been rushed to the hospital just hours after her team revealed she had been diagnosed with COVID-19 despite allegedly being vaccinated.

An insider now disclosed she was "voluntarily admitted" to the hospital in New York City after struggling with "mental health issues for some time."

Another source also claimed, "It has been a very difficult time for Wendy. She's a single woman with very few friends. She lost her marriage, her mom, and is living alone" before went on to add, "there is a lot on her plate."

While her COVID diagnosis is reportedly asymptomatic, her team stated that she would continue being quarantined via their Instagram.

"While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19, " the statement read. "To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover and to ensure that our production abides by all SAG/AFTRA and DGA Covid protocols, we expect to begin the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, October 4th."

This also comes after it was reported last week that Wendy was dealing with some "ongoing health issues" that prompted her show to halt all promotional activities ahead of their premiere.

A day later, the former radio DJ was photographed looking unwell as she stepped out of her black SUV outside her New York apartment.

Last year, Wendy put her show on hiatus after she reportedly suffered from Graves' disease symptoms. In 2019, she also went through another health crisis as she was diagnosed with Lymphedema in which she claimed to have found out about it while on her summer vacation.
