Wendy Williams says she only has “maybe five percent” feeling left in her feet amid her battle with lymphedema.

Speaking to TMZ on Tuesday, the 57-year-old lifted up her swollen leg to show fans how her condition has progressed since stepping down from hosting “The Wendy Williams Show,” which ended on June 17.

“Do you see this? [My foot] is up and down. I can only feel maybe five percent of my feet, do you understand?” she explained, clarifying that she doesn’t need the help of a wheelchair to move around and can “stand up” on her own.

Lymphedema is caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system, part of the immune and circulatory systems, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Back in 2019, Williams revealed her diagnosis after pap pics showed her swollen ankles. She also suffers from Graves’ disease, which, according to the Mayo Clinic, results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones.

However, when asked by the outlet how she was doing “physically,” she said she was doing “better than” anyone.

The TV personality further confirmed that she was “100 percent retired” from “The Wendy Williams Show” but was willing to put in an hour or two as a guest host for “The View.”

However, just because she’s retiring from television doesn’t mean Williams is going to fade into the background. In fact, the long-time broadcaster announced she’s producing her own podcast, which will bring her more money and free time.

“When you’re famous, podcasts will make more money for me, being famous, than doing ‘The Wendy Williams Show,’” she explained.

“The Wendy Williams Show,” which first aired in 2008, ended earlier this month, and sadly, all of its iconic props were thrown out.

A production source told The Sun at the time, “The wigs are still there since she didn’t come and get them so they’re being thrown out.

“The [Big Purple Chair] is just going to be thrown out,” the source added. “Production is not even bothering to try to donate the chair to a museum – as ‘The View’ did with their original table after 10 years. They gave it to The Smithsonian.”

Williams did not show up for the finale of her show, which ran for 13 seasons. Previously, Page Six exclusively reported that staffers were agonizing over how to bring her back for the finale.

“People want her to come back,” a source said at the time. “A lot of people — especially the mid-and low-level producers – signed up for the job because of Wendy. It feels like it’s just going to end [without her]. It’s weird.”
