Wendy Williams has suffered a series of setbacks in recent years. She faced a lot of controversy and lost her marriage in a love child scandal. The host was in a rehab for a while and then recently hospitalized for a “psychiatric episode.” It seems that the once jovial Wendy is having a lonely Christmas.
Wendy’s team claimed she was suffering from Covid, Graves’ disease and lymphedema. Besides that she has had a major fall-out with family and friends since late 2019. Wendy notably had a fall-out from her close friend and show sidekick, DJ Boof last year.
The host has often been spotted alone since she filed for divorce from Kevin Hunter in 2019, after his mistress Sharina Hudson gave birth to his baby. Wendy lost her beloved mother Shirley in 2020.
Wendy took time off her talk show to mourn the loss of her mother. However, Wendy’s brother Tommy said he was upset that she did not attend the funeral services for their mother. Wendy also has a tumultuous relationship with her brother.
A source close to Wendy told The Sun “[Wendy] no longer has any allies, she is totally unable to keep friends because they say she ‘uses’ people. She’s incredibly rude to people who try to get close to her, or try to help her.” Earlier this month, a video surfaced of Wendy leaving a Miami wellness center. Wendy stated that she is doing fabulous in the video.
Wendy Williams was initially unable to be on Season 13 of her Wendy Williams Show due to various health issues. Since her absence from her show, she has only been pictured with her son, Kevin Hunter Jr. She is not expected to return to the show any time soon. Although there has been buzz of her return, many fear she’ll never come back.
