AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams' health is apparently still bad. According to a new report, the former host of "The Wendy Williams Show", which finale aired on Friday, June 17, doesn't leave her house and loses recollection of anything.
A source close to Wendy reveals to theJasmineBRAND that the ailing star "can't remember anything." The insider also claims, "She needs a teleprompter and she needs someone there to remind her of things."
It is also said that the 57-year-old, who is in ongoing battle with Graves' disease, "is sitting in her house." The source adds, "She isn't taking meetings, she isn't going out, there is no plan."
The news arrives after "The Wendy Williams Show" officially ended after 13 years on air. Wendy was nowhere to be seen in the final episode, with Sherri Shepherd guest-hosting the episode before permanently taking over the TV time slot.
Paying tribute to Wendy, Sherri said, "Most of all, we have to thank you, Wendy Williams. You have to say - there is nobody like Wendy Williams." She went on to rave, "From her days on the radio, to ruling daytime talk for 13 seasons, Wendy earned her title as the queen of all media."
"If you think about it, Wendy Williams changed daytime talk with her unique take on 'Hot Topics', her one-of-a-kind celebrity interviews, the signature 'As Wendy' segments and, of course y'all, her famous 'How you doin?' " she added. The former "The View" co-host then shared a personal message for Wendy, saying, "And I wanna say, Miss Wendy you are an icon and you are loved by so many, so many."
Many were not okay with them snubbing Wendy even on the final day of the once-popular talk show. Among those who slammed the show was Wendy's ex-husband Kevin Hunter. "I feel like it is a travesty on the part of Debmar-Mercury to have such an unceremonious departure without Wendy being involved. It is the first time in the history of talk shows for this to be done, especially for a show that has been on for more than 10 years," he told Entertainment Tonight.
"There is absolutely no reason why a bigger celebration that involved Wendy couldn't happen," he divulged. "I know the blood, sweat and tears that went into making the show such a success, (and) I am not happy with the way the show is going out on a personal level and I am truly sorry that the show's fans have to see it go down the way that it is."
