A Note from The Hunter Family
As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend. Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment. Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital.

Wendy thanks everyone in advance for their well-wishes and for respecting her and The Hunter Family’s privacy during this time.
