Wendy Williams is taking a break.

On Wednesday's episode of "The Wendy Williams Show," the television personality announced that she'll be taking a three-week hiatus after being diagnosed with Graves' disease and Hyperthyroidism -- or an overactive thyroid.

Her time off will begin on Thursday.

"My doctor has prescribed -- are you ready? -- three weeks of vacation," Williams said on Wednesday. "I was pissed. Encore performances, really?"

She also detailed her symptoms, which included difficulty sleeping, irritability and more.

The reveal comes a week after Williams cancelled three tapings of her show after feeling "awful."

"I had to be talked out of going to work today and taking off a few days to get myself together," Williams said on Instagram earlier this month. "I'm a thoroughbred, you know? I have not taken off since we started the show."

"Take off? Sick?" she added. "No, never!"

Williams also revealed that a doctor had been looking into her condition in an attempt to discover what she had been suffering from.

She had returned to "Wendy" on Monday, telling viewers that it was "good to be back" after overcoming her flu-like symptoms.

The former radio personality shocked fans back in October when she collapsed on live television during the Halloween episode of her show. She attributed the scary moment to overheating.
