Did Wendy Williams post an old video?

Also, Wendy Williams said she’s 56 years old. She is currently 57. Some of the fans took to the comment section to share their thoughts on the video. Some think it’s old footage she used to prove she’s fine.
- “This video is a year old.”
- “I believe this is an old video.”
- “This have to be old because she said its good to have family like her mom dad and others… But I thought her mother had passed .”
- “The video is old. She keeps referencing that she is 56 years old but she’s actually 57.”
Wendy’s publicist told Page Six that she simply misspoke when she talked about her age. As for her mother, she visits her burial that’s in Florida. The rep claimed that the video was filmed on Wednesday morning. Yet, some fans don’t know what to think and hope to get another update from her soon.
