Wendy Williams remains one of the most well-known talk show hosts in the history of the entertainment business. She is famous for speaking her mind and not mincing words when it comes to something Williams truly feels.

Williams hosted the ever-popular ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ from 2008 to 2022. “The Wendy Williams Show” came to an end on Friday, June 17th after it was cancelled.

The former daytime talk show host was also sick for several months before that. According to Page Six, Wendy Williams was “at death’s door” and ultimately hospitalized for two blood transfusions two years ago due to her worsening alcohol addiction.

Back in May 2020, her friends, including DJ Boof, discovered Williams “catatonic” at her New York City apartment, where her former manager Bernie Young allegedly didn’t want to inform police out of fear it would become public knowledge.

I don’t think he understood the extent of what was going on, and I don’t think he wanted it to get out that she was not well, and he definitely didn’t want a 911 call like [what] happened a year later.

It was pretty much a mess. It was a mess,” the source says. “She was in her robe, it was soiled, she was catatonic, she was in a very, very bad state. She was looking at the ceiling. She was just not responsive, but her eyes were open, but she was definitely in a catatonic state.

They a case of alcohol, open wine bottles and Ketel One. We started clearing out a lot of liquor.

She’s going to die. She literally couldn’t stand up,” the source recalled. “She was just lying on top of the covers, and she needed 911 help, and [Young’s] like, ‘We’re not getting 911.’

Boof was the savior of her f–king life,” a second source says, noting that he went back to her apartment after he dropped her off to dump the alcohol.

She was really, in my opinion, at death’s door,” our initial eyewitness says. “If we were not there that day, she would not be here. She would not have made it. If it weren’t for Kevin and Ron Clinton and his team, she wouldn’t have made it.”

We are certainly glad Wendy Williams pulled through thanks to her wonderful and caring friends. She is busy with her own projects, including a podcast, so that’s all that matters now.
