Wendy Williams, the US media personality, has spoken about her financial struggles amid her ongoing battle with an immune disorder.
In 2018, the former host of the ‘Wendy Williams Show’ announced her diagnosis of Graves’ disease, an autoimmune disorder affecting the thyroid gland.
In 2021, she took a leave of absence from her show due to health issues.
The show ended in 2022, and Williams has not returned to television since.
In a trailer for her forthcoming documentary, ‘Where Is Wendy Williams?’, the former show host shared her health struggles and life off-camera.
Williams broke down in tears as she struggled with both mental and physical illness after her talk show came to an end.
“Since I was six years old, all I wanted was to be famous,” she told the cameras, as footage ran showing the radio host at the peak of her career.
A clip showed a frail Williams in the backseat of a car, with the producer asking her: “Have you seen a neurologist?” and she replied, “To see if I am crazy? Mhm”.
Also speaking directly to the camera during the confessionals, Williams said, “I have no money. And let me tell you something, if it happens to me, it can happen to you”.
The documentary is expected to arrive on Lifetime TV on February 24 and 25.
Wendy was honoured with the Hollywood Walk Of Fame ‘star’ in October 2019.
