What Happened To Wendy Williams?

Wendy Williams, who is 58 years old, has gone to a “wellness facility” to get help with her overall health problems, her representative Shawn Zanotti told the Current in an exclusive interview.

Zanotti said, “She is taking some time to focus on her health and wellness as she gets ready for a big career comeback with “The Wendy Experience Podcast.”

“A team of some of the best doctors in the world are taking care of Ms. Williams. We ask for your prayers and well wishes during this time.”

Williams has been open with her fans about her ongoing health problems over the years. Graves’ disease and hyperthyroidism, both of which she was diagnosed with in 2003, have caused her a lot of trouble.

She has also had trouble staying sober since splitting up with her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter. In 2019, she went to a rehab centre for help. Williams tested positive for COVID-19 in 2021, and he was taken to the hospital right away for “psychiatric services.”

But on August 9, 2022, Williams announced that she would be starting a new podcast called The Wendy Experience. Even though she was happy as she talked about her new business, fans were worried because she “did not seem like herself.”

A source close to Williams has said in the past that there are no deals in place for her new passion project and that major podcast carriers have turned her down.

But her manager told The Current in an exclusive interview that she “isn’t in perfect shape,” but he was sure she was ready for her next step in her career.

Williams still can’t get to her $20 million fortune because she is in a fierce legal battle with her bank, which means she can’t pay her staff.

According To Sources, Wendy Needs Assistance Getting Dressed And Occasionally Has Trouble Recognizing Her Friends.

A source told The Current that Wendy’s health was so bad that she wasn’t “functioning like she used to.” They also said that she had “days where she needs help eating, getting out of bed, and getting dressed,” and that she had trouble recognizing some longtime friends.

“The remaining staff talk amongst themselves, but a lot of the rumours are true,” a Page Six source said. “A lot of the staff has already left, so [the ones who are left] don’t feel like they still have loyalty to Wendy.”

For what? She’s not getting better, and she’s not coming back, so it doesn’t matter. “They wish her the best, but times are hard and people need their paychecks.”

At the time, Wendy’s representatives talked to the outlet about what they had heard about her health in the news. They claimed that the details were “wrong” and that rumours that she would no longer host the Wendy Williams Show were “speculation.”

‘The Wendy Williams Show’ Has Now Been Canceled.

In February 2022, it was announced that The Wendy Williams Show was being cancelled and would end at the end of the current season in June 2022. This was because Wendy’s health was getting worse and she was no longer able to host her talk show.

Sherri Shepherd, an actress and comedian, told her fans that she would be taking over Wendy’s time slot with her own talk show, Sherri, beginning in September 2022.

Sherri talked about her show while she was a guest host on Wendy’s, and she said she would be back to guest host once a month until Wendy’s show ended this summer.

Before the news was made public, Wendy posted a video update on Instagram saying that she was looking forward to going back to New York and hosting the show again after her vacation in Florida.

Unfortunately, just a few days later, it was announced that the show would no longer be on.
