Wendy Williams Is Reportedly Planning A Career Comeback: ‘You’ll See A Lot More Of Her’
We could be seeing a lot more of Wendy Williams soon.
Wendy Williams, 57, has stayed out of the spotlight for months while battling with her health. But according to a report, she’s made great improvements and is looking forward to a “big comeback on TV.”
She was reportedly heard detailing her plans to TV personality Baruch Shemtov while they were dining out in New York City on April 13. A source said:
“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.”
At a point, reports claimed Wendy Williams had become reliant on a wheelchair, but the insider said that she’s now getting around on her own. They shared:
“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 source also said that Williams will be in New York “for the foreseeable future” after spending the last few months in Miami while dealing with health issues, which includes Graves disease.
“She’s planting her roots back in New York and you’ll see a lot more of her,” they said.
“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.”
But before anything, Williams is reportedly trying to get her finances back together. It was previously reported that Wells Fargo had frozen her bank account over concerns of “financial exploitation, dementia or undue influence.” The bank labeled Williams as an “incapacitated person” and argues that she is in need of guardianship. But Williams disagrees. She is now fighting the issue in court.
The source said her issues with Wells Fargo are her first priority, explaining:
“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.”
Williams stepped back from her self-titled daytime talk show in July of 2021 due to issues with her health. Guest hosts filled in for her in the meantime, but by February, when she still hadn’t returned to work, the decision was made to cancel her show. Sherri Shepherd‘s eponymous talk show will take its place in the fall.
