Wendy Williams has been diagnosed with two brain disorders: primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia. Her reps confirmed this in a press release.

They said that Wendy only got to know about her condition thanks to her new care team and the experts at Weill Cornell Medicine. They also said that Wendy is getting the medical help she needs and that she can still do many things on her own. She was the one who picked her care team and agreed to the press release, they added.

Her family shared tragic details about her condition.

The news of Wendy’s diagnosis came after a People Magazine story that featured the first comments from Wendy’s brother, sister, and niece. They talked about how Wendy’s life has changed over the past few years. Wendy’s niece, Alex Finnie, who is also a news anchor in Miami, said that they have seen Wendy go downhill for a long time. She said that it was sad and shocking to see Wendy in this state.

Wendy Williams has had a rough time in the past few years. In March 2019, she revealed that she was staying in a sober house. Then, in April 2019, she filed for divorce from her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, who was also a co-producer of her show. They had been married for 21 years and had a son, Kevin Hunter Jr.
