This Saturday and Sunday night, Lifetime is airing a two-part documentary asking, “Where is Wendy Williams?

Today, her team released a heartbreaking statement on her health, and it is a very sad update.

On behalf of Wendy Williams Hunter, her care team is sharing this very personal update with her cherished fans, friends, and supporters to correct inaccurate and hurtful rumors about her health.

As Wendy’s fans are aware, in the past she has been open with the public about her medical struggles with Graves’ Disease and Lymphedema as well as other significant challenges related to her health.

Over the past few years, questions have been raised at times about Wendy’s ability to process information and many have speculated about Wendy’s condition, particularly when she began to lose words, act erratically at times, and have difficulty understanding financial transactions.

In 2023, after undergoing a battery of medical tests, Wendy was officially diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Aphasia, a condition affecting language and communication abilities, and frontotemporal dementia, a progressive disorder impacting behavior and cognitive functions, have already presented significant hurdles in Wendy’s life.

Wendy would not have received confirmation of these diagnoses were it not for the diligence of her current care team, who she chose, and the extraordinary work of the specialists at Weill Cornell Medicine. Receiving a diagnosis has enabled Wendy to receive the medical care she requires.

The decision to share this news was difficult and made after careful consideration, not only to advocate for understanding and compassion for Wendy, but to raise awareness about aphasia and frontotemporal dementia and support the thousands of others facing similar circumstances. Unfortunately, many individuals diagnosed with aphasia and frontotemporal dementia face stigma and misunderstanding, particularly when they begin to exhibit behavioral changes but have not yet received a diagnosis.

There is hope that with early detection and far more empathy, the stigma associated with dementia will be eliminated, and those affected will receive the understanding, support, and care they deserve and need.

Wendy is still able to do many things for herself. Most importantly she maintains her trademark sense of humor and is receiving the care she requires to make sure she is protected and that her needs are addressed. She is appreciative of the many kind thoughts and good wishes being sent her way.

I will pray for her and her loved ones during this difficult time.

Bruce Willis is suffering from the same affliction. Sadly, money can’t buy you happiness or health. But maybe it can help others who are diagnosed with the same disease by bringing attention to it.


Lifetime found Wendy Willaims

Wendy Williams had a popular daytime talk show for twelve years, and then her health got the better of her. So much so that she took a season off, and her show was cancelled at the end of that season in June 2022.

Since then, she has very rarely seen.

However, that doesn’t mean the camera stopped rolling. Her family has been recording a documentary about her conservatorship, and it will air on Lifetime later this month.

Over the course of nearly two years, cameras chronicled the former television host and radio star Wendy Williams’ on the next phase of her life, following the end of her iconic talk show. The documentary provides a raw, honest and unfiltered reality of Wendy’s life after she was placed under financial guardianship, shedding light on the vulnerabilities that has turned Wendy into the Hot Topic herself. Suffering mental and physical issues, Wendy’s delicate state of mind, erratic behavior and declining health were all captured by the cameras. Where is Wendy Williams? is the story of Wendy’s journey to resurrect her career, and what filmmakers discovered along the way. But many questions remain – who truly has Wendy’s best interest at heart? Is she healthy now? And Where is Wendy Williams?

Where Is Wendy Williams will air on February 24th and February 25th.

Wendy Williams has been suffering from serious health issues for over a year. Issues so severe, she lost her talk show. And now, she is finally getting help for it as she prepares for the next chapter of her work life.

“She is taking some time to focus on her health and wellness as she prepares for a major comeback for the next level in her career with The Wendy Experience Podcast,” Williams’ rep tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Ms. Williams is being treated by a team of some of the best doctors in the world. We ask for your prayers and well wishes during this time.”

The former talk show host has not fully disclosed what is ailing her, but she does suffer from Graves’ Disease.

Wendy Williams lost her television talk show, but she already has a new project in the works. The host announced that her podcast, The Wendy Experience, is coming soon.

When it will debut, and what it will be about, we don’t know. However, the Instagram page for the podcast says, “The Wendy Experience will be unforgettable! The Wendy Experience will be unforgettable!” How unforgettable? Only time will tell.


Wendy Williams says she will be ready to do her show in 3 months

It has been a rough six months for Wendy Williams. Due to health issues, she has not been able to host her show at all this season. Therefore, the producers made the tough decision to cancel her show and give Sherri Shepherd her timeslot.

And through this all, we have not heard from the former talk show host. However, today, she broke her silence to Good Morning America. She did a phone interview with them, even though the 57-year-old said she has “the mind and body of a 25-year-old.”

She says she is healthy and will be ready to sit back in the purple throne in three months after she deals with some private non-health-related issues.

I would believe her if she did an on-camera interview instead of a phoner. To me, someone who spends their life in front of the camera suddenly doesn’t want to be on camera, speaks volumes. Whatever those volumes are, we don’t know.

Before she ended her interview with GMA, she had a message for the Wendy Watchers, “Keep watching because I’m going to be back on the Wendy show bigger and brighter than ever.” I hope that is true for her fans. But I don’t believe she will be. I hate to say it.
