What issues has Wendy Williams been struggling with?

Wendy has fought numerous battles with herself regarding substance abuse in the early stages of her career.

In early 2019, she went on a hiatus from hosting her talk show to treat her Grave’s disease but it was later revealed that she had entered into a sobriety house.

In September 2022, Williams checked into a wellness facility after relapsing on an alcohol addiction.

A source revealed that things were escalating as she switched from drinking wine to vodka and that her talk-show production company refused to get her help.

It had been previously revealed by her ex-husband Kevin Hunter that the production company had ill intentions of making her continue running the show even with her issues.

Kevin was an executive producer on the show and he also revealed that the show’s finale was a sad excuse of a celebration for a show that has been running successfully for over 10 years.

Wendy Williams left rehab after two months of treatment in October to go back to her home and heal.


In a recent video, Williams is seen asking the help of a reporter to hold her hand so that she can be escorted into the building. It can be clearly seen in the video that she is struggling to walk.

A few fans stated that the reason could be that she has lymphedema in her feet which makes it incredibly painful for her to put pressure on her feet, which is also the reason she stopped wearing heels.

According to Mayoclinic, Lymphedema refers to tissue swelling caused by an accumulation of protein-rich fluid that’s usually drained through the body’s lymphatic system. It most commonly affects the arms or legs.
