Williams initially took leave from her show in December after fracturing her shoulder. She was slated to return Jan. 14, but said Jan. 18 she would take an extended hiatus from the show due to complications from Graves' disease and other issues.

"Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being," the star's team said on Instagram.

Williams was diagnosed with Graves' disease, an autoimmune disease affecting the thyroid, in February 2018. The television personality had fainted on-air during an episode of her show in October 2017.
