Wendy Williams’ team has questioned her about her sobriety. This comes amid the ever-growing concerns over her behavior. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, she reportedly has a split personality. Fans have wondered what happened to Wendy in the past year.
They noticed that she doesn’t act like her usual self in recent interviews. She has gone through a lot, especially after the death of her mother. It reportedly caused the former daytime television host to fall back on her sobriety. Find out why her staff hampers her with questions about what she’s really doing when they’re not around.
The staff concerned about the fallen talk show host
An insider told The Hollywood Reporter that there has been an ongoing concern for the fallen talk show host. They reportedly “found alcohol bottles hidden in the ceiling” on the set of her talk show. The staff cleaned up her old production studio to make way for Sherri Shepherd’s new talk show in the fall. They even “questioned her sobriety at work at least 25 times.”
Insiders told THR that Wendy Williams wasn’t in the right frame of mind during the final years of her namesake talk show. This came before she went on an extended hiatus in July 2021 and the show ended up being canceled.
The 58-year-old revealed that she was struggling with ongoing health issues, including Graves’ disease. She also opened up about her drug and alcohol addiction in 2019. At the time, she was living in a sober house.
“Everybody on that stuff and crew witnessed all kinds of things,” an insider shared exclusively with THR.
The insider shared that staff would find “alcohol bottles in the ceiling tiles and other weird places in the office.” Her production team would ask her about her sobriety “at least 25” times before each show. Wendy Williams claimed that she was “fine.” There were also times when the taping wouldn’t air until later in the week.
This would allow producers to ensure that Wendy was okay enough to host the show. This shocking new in-depth report comes amid concerns over her behaviors. Fans have already noticed that the pop culture icon isn’t ready to make a comeback. They demanded for Wendy’s old personality to return first and that she focuses on her health.
Wendy Williams’ final days on the show
In the report, bosses allegedly claimed that Wendy Williams was “fine enough” and released the episodes. However, there was one episode that had them concerned. They canned the episode that was filmed during spring 2021. Instead, a repeat was aired in its place.
It was around the time when many of the repeats from The Wendy Williams Show would air. Another insider told The Sun that she allegedly has a drinking problem. In September 2021, she was hospitalized for psychiatric issues. The reason why her team never spoke up is that they were afraid to “lose their jobs.”
Wendy Williams is expected to make a return in the form of a podcast. She wants to talk about her health issues, among other things. Yet, there is no premiere date set. What are your thoughts on THR’s explosive report? Sound off below in the comment section.
