With a large portion of the globe currently under some form of stay-at-home​ order, there has been an outpouring vocalization from individuals of every social status about the problems they're facing while under home quarantine for so long. Mounting issues surrounding access to food/basic necessities​, personal protective equipment, as well as the mental and physical well-being of those in abusive situations confined to home have opened a massive dialogue about the societal shifts this situation would bring. However, talk show​ host Wendy Williams decided to voice a different set of concerns during the pandemic that some have deemed insensitive.

Speaking on a new episode of 'The Dr. Oz Show,' which is being hosted from home, Williams explained how her main concerns have shifted in the face of this unprecedented pandemic.

Williams has seemingly been taking the stay-at-home order just as seriously as anyone else, but she expressed concerns over the long term pheasibility of the concept, as well as the toll being home and isolated for so long will take on her personal life and ability to work effectively.

"I’m willing to risk it with one camera and a flashlight. I’m ready to go back to work next week," Williams said about her cautious optimism to return to work as soon as possible.

Williams recounted a phone call she received when the coronavirus situation initially began catching momentum in the United States, "We need to have you home, indefinitely."

She said that the call left her in a difficult situation, "There will be no more Wendy or any of the other people for a period of time."


Beyond being fully stocked with enough food, water, and kitty litter to last the duration of the situation, Williams admitted that the biggest toll the situation has taken on her is in her personal life.

When Dr. Oz asked her what the most difficult part of being alone was, she candidly said, "You ready? The sex. The boyfriends. Not that I’m having sex with a bunch of people but you know, the intimate conversation. Somebody coming over and sharing a meal."

When Dr. Oz asked if she was still engaging in this behavior now, she said that she was not, "It’s not that important."

However, the most controversial statement Williams made during the interview was in regards to an elective surgery that she had to reschedule due to the virus. "It’s just that, as a surgery girl, when you save your money and you’ve been planning for years, and then you have your appointment and all of a sudden the corona pops up, and I got to deal with these saggy boobs. How much longer before I get them pulled back up?"
