REPORT: Wendy Williams Enters Wellness Center Amid Health Concerns

Wendy Williams has been checked into a wellness center amid health concerns, reports her manager, Will Selby, in an interview with "Entertainment Tonight."

Former talk show queen Wendy Williams (“The Wendy Williams Show”) has been checked into a wellness center, reports Entertainment Tonight, citing Williams’ manager, Will Selby.

“Wendy is at a facility doing her best to be her best. She’s taking it day by day,” Selby said to the news program of his client, who has been in and out of health facilities over the past few years. “And that’s another thing, too, does anybody even ask like, ‘How’s she doing? Does anyone even care… I feel like everyone just puts out negative information about her and that’s the focus. Why don’t we just stop for a moment and just say, ‘Hey, how is she? Is she doing OK today?’ Why is that not the focus? Why isn’t that what we’re talking about on a daily basis?”

Reminding people of how much Williams has gone through over the years — the end of her long-running television show, her battles with Graves’ disease and lymphedema — Selby asked for critics and fans to show the beloved TV personality some compassion, stating, “Just understand that she’s a human being that’s going through a lot. She’s dealing with a lot and support her, please.”

With her primary focus on her health, Williams is said to be looking ahead to the future and the next chapter of her life. “She’s only thinking about things that she wants to do in her life,” Selby points out. “She’s only thinking about Wendy 2.0 and her new chapter of her life, and the things that she wants to accomplish, and that’s our focus.”

In an interview with The U.S. Sun, Williams’ son, Kevin Hunter Jr. told the outlet that he believed his mother’s team is taking advantage of her and her wealth amid her battle with alcoholism. In response, Selby told Entertainment Tonight, “Taking advantage of her for what? To get what? To do what? I’m not here to brag, but I was doing just OK before Wendy came along and I insisted on helping her because she requested my assistance.”

Pointing out that Williams is under court-appointed guardianship, Selby says there is no way he, anyone on her team, or anyone else for that matter could be taking advantage of her. He says, “Wendy is under a guardianship. Everything that she does gets approved by the guardianship. A court-appointed guardianship. So, no one, even if they wanted to take advantage of her — everything has to get approved by that court.” He adds, “So, any type of business dealings that we do, Wendy, myself and anyone — we have to get the guardianship to sign off on it. So how can anyone take advantage of her?”

Williams hosted “The Wendy Williams Show” for 12 seasons in national syndication. During the 2021-2022 television season, the show’s 13th season aired without Williams in her famous purple chair for a single episode. Instead, guest hosts rotated all season. As a result, producer Debmar-Mercury decided to cancel the daytime talk show and replaced it with “Sherri,” a new daytime talk show hosted by Sherri Shepherd, who was one of many guest hosts stepping in for Williams during season 13. Ratings for episodes hosted by Shepherd performed the best.
