Is Wendy Williams okay? This seems to be the question on the mind of many fans around the world!
The renowned on-air personality is notoriously known in the entertainment industry for her outspoken attitude and brash interviews with celebrities. However, the New Jersey native seems to have lost her feisty charm. The 58-year-old resurfaced to promote her latest career move but left fans with mixed reactions about her wellbeing.
Wendy Williams Plans To Reclaim Her Spotlight With New Podcast
Williams has found a new passion following the unfortunate cancellation of her nationally syndicated television talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show.” The media personality may no longer be the queen of daytime TV, but losing this pedestal did not dim the broadcaster’s will to provide quality entertainment.
According to the “Think Like A Man” actress, her time in the spotlight may come sooner than fans expected as she planned to unveil a new podcast. The former shock jockette recently shared details about her upcoming eponymous project, “The Wendy Experience,” in a short Instagram video.
In the promotional clip, the camera closed in on the National Radio Hall of Fame inductee’s face before zooming out to show the New Jersey native sitting on a bed. After giving viewers a quick glimpse at the 58-year-old’s casual ensemble, featuring a black t-shirt and denim shorts, the footage ended with a graphic poster of the podcast’s title.
For the promo, Williams assured fans, and her fellow co-hosts that her status as a famous figure would remain intact until her eventual return. The “Love Triangle” host reaffirmed her pledge in the post’s caption by imploring the world to wait for her. “TRUST ME, I will be BACK!” the TV personality wrote.

On a typical day, this clip would have generated substantial positive feedback from the Billboard Radio Award winner’s fanbase. However, waiting for their idol’s grand comeback was the least of fans’ worries as they flooded the comment section with concerns about the entertainer’s health. Williams looked nothing like her vibrant self in the promo video, as her voluptuous body had been reduced to a thinner frame.
Similarly, the TV personality’s voice did not hold the edge it once had, nor could makeup hide the exhaustion on the New Jersey native’s face. One female fan bluntly stated that the “Drama Is Her Middle Name” author’s podcast would fail because the 58-year-old was not ready to embark on a new project. A second social media user echoed similar thoughts, noting that Williams needed to prioritize her health because genuine supporters would never abandon her.
Another of the media personality’s devotees affectionately described her as his “big sister” in a sweet comment that begged the Emmy nominee to get the rest she needed. While most fans kept their composure, some people bared their claws at Williams’ team for not caring for the “Wendy’s Got the Heat” author. “Y’all going to the deepest depths of hell for not helping Wendy and constantly putting her in awkward situations,” an enraged fan wrote.
This individual directed their displeasure at William Selby, the entertainer’s manager, telling him to “cut the bullsh*t.” A fellow distraught fan hoped that whoever was in charge of the “The Cookout 2” actress’s social media page would notice the numerous messages about the Hollywood veteran’s health. “What is going on here? Get her the help she needs and stop using her because that’s what it seems is going on here,” the individual angrily penned. “It’s so sad. Wendy is an icon. She deserves better.”
The People’s Choice Award Nominee Revealed She Was Done With TV
When it comes to the world’s most beloved TV personality, Williams’s name could be found on the list alongside numerous achievements to back that claim. However, The Blast previously reported that the former talk show queen might never return to the small screen as a host. This decision came after the cancellation of her daytime program.
Due to severe health problems, the 58-year-old lost the gig as she could not continue her hosting duties. Nonetheless, the New Jersey native was not disheartened by the outcome. While addressing her future, Williams explained that her accumulated wealth would sponsor a new career in the podcast industry. The entertainer noted that famous figures like herself generated more income creating podcasts than working on TV.
