The tables have turned on Wendy Williams — she is officially the hot topic everyone’s been talking about. For weeks, she has been postponing her show and using a revolving door of hosts that have included Don Lemon, Nick Cannon, Rickey Smiley and more. Over the past few months, she reportedly has injured her arm, been having ongoing thyroid issues, her husband allegedly got another woman pregnant and there are allegations that a divorce was on the horizon.
Now, after several weeks in private, the first image of Williams has surfaced.
The 54-year-old was spotted at a Florida CVS with a friend on Tuesday, according to Us Weekly. See the image below:
The site also revealed she was considering moving from her New Jersey home and relocating to Manhattan, where “The Wendy Williams Show” is taped.
Back in December, Love B. Scott exclusively reported that although the chat fest was renewed through 2020, the future of the show beyond that season was allegedly uncertain. There are “concerns over Wendy’s health are clouding chances for any further renewal.”
In addition, the site said it received a cease and desist letter from Wendy’s lawyers, asking to remove the story that her husband had another woman pregnant and she was filing for divorce. The letter stated, “Mrs. Wendy Williams-Hunter and Mr. Kevin Hunter categorically deny each and every allegation made by your ‘sources’, even if not specifically enumerated herein.”
The letter was a bizarre twist considering the daytime TV diva has made a career out of talking about other people.
Wendy’s husband, Kevin Hunter, has a longtime mistress who he bought a home for just down the street from where he lives with his wife, the Daily Mail reported.
Love B. Scott also claims she is struggling with self-medicating herself. Radar Online claims Wendy can “barely stand at times” and her friends say there’s a “major problem.”
Wendy did say to her fans that on Instagram, “I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgment of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%.”
She added, “Not to mention everyone is aware at this point about my thyroid condition (don’t cry for me Argentina). For all my fellow thyroid sufferers, you know what the deal is… Needless to say… I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care. I promise you a better Wendy in 2019.”
There is no word on Wendy will return to the show.
