Fans want to know what happened to Wendy Williams. She’s currently at odds with her brother Tommy Williams who spilled the tea about his famous sister. In a 16-minute rant during his YouTube Live, he called her “selfish” for shutting out her own son. Ever since her move back to New York City, she’s been surrounded by a circle of friends who aren’t looking out for her best interest.
She appeared wide-eyed at a strip club. Recently, the former television personality was passed out with alcohol by her side. According to new reports, she has no grip on reality as she struggles with remembering names and faces. What happened to the former talk show host?
Suffered many losses and blows
Wendy Williams has been through a lot in her life. In the past, she opened up about her struggles with alcoholism and substance abuse. Following her divorce from Kevin Hunter in 2019, she revealed on her hit show that she has been living in a sober house.
At the time, she took an extended hiatus from her namesake show. She went on another hiatus in September 2021 when she was hit with medical issues. This time around, Wendy dealt with the effects of a breakthrough COVID case and Graves’ Disease. Even though she promised a return to television, it hasn’t been easy for her.
Wendy Williams’ health continued to get worse. She temporarily moved to Florida to be by her family’s side and to focus on her health. In December 2020, her mother, Shirley Williams, passed away with her family by her side. Wendy has dealt with many losses and blows since then, including losing control of her financial situation due to her legal battle with Wells Fargo.
On June 17, 2022, The Wendy Williams Show aired its final episode without the original host. Shortly thereafter, her former team cleaned out the set in order to make way for Sherry Shepherd’s new talk show. Then she dealt with the loss of her son due to their estranged relationship.
Kevin tried to visit his mom in NYC. Her brother Tommy claims that she kicked him out of her penthouse apartment. Wendy celebrated her 58th birthday on July 18 with people who aren’t taking care of her. She’s been alone with her struggles ever since.
Wendy Williams struggles amid health concerns
An insider told The Sun that Wendy Williams has been struggling lately. She is so far from reality that she claims she’s married. Her bizarre behavior has become apparent in recent interviews and outings. Multiple sources told the outlet that she often forgets who she’s talking to.
“You can be on the phone with her, and she will ask who she’s speaking to,” one insider told The Sun. “It’s happening to everyone in her circle.”
This isn’t just happening with the people she’s been hanging out with lately. It also happens with the friends she’s had for years. However, Wendy’s manager, Will Selby, claims that she hasn’t forgotten who he is. Earlier this week, he confirmed that the former radio host isn’t married despite her interview with Jason Lee at Hollywood Unlocked.
Wendy Williams’ family and friends are concerned about her health and well-being. Her longtime manager even admitted that she’s not her normal self these days. He feels that it’s a result of her losses and struggles over the years. Wendy just wants to live her life since she’s been through so much.
