Wendy Williams hosted the nationally syndicated television talk show The Wendy Williams Show from 2008 to 2022. She recently went through a difficult time in the public eye, but Wendy is now ready to make a strong comeback.
Williams reportedly discussed her plans to make a “big TV comeback” and reclaim control of her finances over dinner with friends in New York this week. Page Six reports that the 57-year-old went on hiatus from her talk show last summer and was forced to repeatedly postpone her return due to health issues, to the point where her guest host Sherri Shepherd has now officially taken her place.
Wendy was locked out of her accounts by Wells Fargo in January, branding her as an “incapacitated person” who required guardianship after her financial advisor allegedly claimed she was “of unsound mind.” According to the source, Wendy declared, “I’m getting my money back very soon,” while out to dinner in New York on Wednesday.
Her dinner guests included her niece Alex Finnie, her niece’s boyfriend Eric Houston, and entertainment anchor Baruch Shemtov. Wendy was seen smiling brightly and walking into her Suburban without assistance, a far cry from when she was spotted in a wheelchair in New York late last year. By this week a source divulged: “She’s ready to get back to work. When you hear her talk… anyone who’s known her for years, knows they’re getting a Wendy who’s ready to work. She’s really in good form.”
She appeared ‘vibrant’ at Fresco By Scotto, which she promoted on The Wendy Williams Show, according to one eyewitness.
“She looks great. No one was helping her. It was very different from the person who we’ve seen in the wheelchair. She was walking by herself. No one helped her get in her car. She climbed right in and it was a Suburban.”
“The main thing right now is the finances. That is her focus. Things are in the works. She is coming back to TV and she is getting her money back.”
“She’s planting her roots back in New York and you’ll see a lot more of her. She’s very comfortable, and is enjoying life again. She took some time off and now she’s ‘out with the old and in with the new.’ It’s like a rebirth.”
Wendy’s attorney claimed previously in court papers that she was locked out of her accounts after her Wells Fargo financial advisor, Lori Schiller, expressed concerns. Wells Fargo has argued in court that they have “strong reason to believe” Wendy “is the victim of undue influence and financial exploitation.”
Let’s wait and see what Wendy says next. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
