Williams was diagnosed with Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism in 2018 and was forced to take a three-week break from the show because of the complications arisen of the illness. Furthermore, because of Grave's, the host has pronounced eyes and thin hair.

During the filming of the show, Williams wears wigs and in-home she usually wears turbans. Also, due to hyperthyroidism, she regularly suffers from vertigo. As a result, she has ditched high heels. Besides the above mentioned two medical conditions, she also suffers from Lymphedema, a non-fatal condition that causes swelling of the lower extremities.

It is reported that during Williams' absence, the show will air reruns. Currently, the show was hosted by the Willimas from her home in New York City because of coronavirus.

In March 2019, Wendy announced on air that she was living in a sober home because of her past cocaine addiction and alcoholism.  However, after serving a divorce letter to her husband Kevin Hunter in April 2019, she moved back into the home. 

Willims and Hunter got married in 1997 and share a child named Kevin Hunter Jr. Williams divorced her husband after she found out that he had just fathered a child with another woman. The divorce was finalized in January 2020.

Kevin is asked to transfer all of his shares in the company to the host. Additionally, the couple's New Jersey Home will be sold, and the profit will be split evenly.
