Media personality Wendy Williams is reportedly getting prepared to move across the country and is already listing some of her properties for sale.
Williams’ New York City apartment was said to be the location where she was going to film her new podcast, but reports have it that she’s now seeking to sell off the furniture in the apartment.
The rumored cancellation of her podcast due to health concerns dashed the hopes of the former talk show host, who had been teasing a return to the big screen.
Read on for more details.
Wendy Williams Wants To Make The Big Move
Williams has reportedly been looking for buyers to sell off her possessions as she prepares to move to Los Angeles, according to The Sun.
The 58-year-old former “Wendy Williams Show” host plans to move sometime in the first week of April. It’s been reported that she’s trying to sell some of her most cherished possessions, including the recognizable purple chair she used on her infamous talk show.
According to the news outlet, a source said, “Wendy has been calling people, asking them to help sell all her stuff. She is asking for recommendations on places that can sell furniture for you.”
Fans got a sneak peek into the stunning decor of the $ 3 million New York City penthouse when she filmed several episodes of her time at home during COVID lockdown in 2020.
Wendy Williams Podcast Was Allegedly Canceled
The reports of her planned relocation came after news broke that her much-anticipated return to the screen was derailed, as her podcast was allegedly canceled.
The “Think Like A Man” actress had been dropping hints about the podcast for some time and had already been spotted filming at the time before it was canceled, telling her friends, “there’s no podcast.”
“It’s strange, because she is saying there is no podcast, but is also telling people she’s going to return to TV. It’s hard to figure out what is based in reality,” a source told The Sun.
The podcast first came to light in 2022 after Williams created an Instagram page for it and announced plans to film it at her New York City apartment, where she is currently clearing out her furniture and belongings.
Her manager, Will Selby, noted that the show wasn’t going to be a “traditional podcast,” as her day-to-day dealings would be documented on it, tagging it the “full Wendy Experience.”
“Wendy says podcast, but she doesn’t elaborate that it’s not going to be a traditional podcast; this is going to be a full podcast show,” Selby shared. “I feel like Wendy is a complete experience, that’s why the name of her show was ‘The Wendy Williams Experience.'”
Selby believed that the video component of the show was essential to its success because it would have given viewers a chance to get to know Williams personally.
She Recently Celebrated A ‘New Lease On Life’
The “Drop Dead Diva” actress, who has gone in and out of rehab for alcoholism, threw caution to the wind when she relapsed while she was celebrating a “new lease on life” at a gay bar in New York, according to Page Six.
Her publicist, Shawn Zanotti, stated that she enjoyed acknowledging her fans and that, at the time, she was enjoying “new things” in her life, including the allegedly canceled podcast.
“Wendy has spent most of her life in the public eye, and when she is out, she likes to acknowledge her fans,” Zanotti said of Williams’ night out in New York City. “She is happy and wanted to celebrate as she has a new lease on life.”
He also explained that Williams loved spending time at the gay bar she was recently spotted in because she “loves her fans and fully supports the LGBTQ community, which is a big part of her fan base.”
Wendy Williams Sparked Health Concerns
The former talk show host left fans perplexed about the state of her health as they were worried about her weight loss.
Williams, who battles illnesses like Graves’ disease and lymphedema and was recently photographed talking to photographers about trying to look younger, opened up about her weight in response to concerns from fans.
“I went to the doctor, and I weigh 138. Pretty right?” She said as she made her way into the restaurant, Fresco By Scotto.
Although fans still have high hopes for Williams’ return to TV, there are still concerns for her health and well-being.
