Wendy Williams has been out of the spotlight after suffering a health scare and other difficulties. Now, she is back to talk about everything she has faced recently.
The erstwhile queen of daytime talk, Wendy Williams, recently shared a startling revelation that has left fans concerned and pouring out their support. At 59, Williams candidly disclosed, “I have no money. I’m gonna tell you something. If it happens to me, it could happen to you.”
In a bid to shed light on her current circumstances, a new documentary is underway, aiming to offer insights into Williams’ life and endeavors during her prolonged absence from television. The trailer’s release sparked an outpouring of reactions from her fans, with many taking to social media to express their support. One shared, “Looks like a nervous breakdown praying for you, Wendy,” as another called the situation “so heartbreaking.” Some were not as supportive, saying her situation was karma for having made fun of people for many years.
Williams’ health has been a focal point of concern. In June 2023, her manager, Will Selby, communicated that Williams was in a wellness facility, confronting her health challenges “day by day.” Williams, who has grappled with Graves’ disease and lymphedema, has faced a series of health-related setbacks, leading to her stepping away from the limelight to focus on her recovery.
Selby called the public and critics alike to develop compassion towards Williams, who has endured personal and health trials, including the conclusion of her long-standing show. He emphasized the need to shift the narrative from criticism to concern, urging people to inquire about her well-being and offer support.
Compounding her health issues, Williams has had to navigate financial complexities. Her son, Kevin Hunter Jr., revealed concerns about her team potentially exploiting her wealth amid her alleged struggles, an assertion firmly refuted by Selby.
According to Selby, Williams is under court-appointed guardianship, ensuring that all her activities and financial dealings receive proper oversight, negating the possibility of exploitation. Despite the circumstances, Williams has voiced her determination to manage her finances personally, asserting her right to oversee the wealth she has worked tirelessly to accumulate.
