Wendy Williams is said to have been admitted to the hospital for a mental evaluation. Wendy was brought to the hospital Tuesday, just a day before it was reported that the next season of the “Wendy Williams Show” will be postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test, according to TMZ. Wendy was voluntarily admitted to a New York City hospital for a psych evaluation, according to sources close to her, and she had been dealing with her mental health for some time. Wendy has COVID, which she has while coping with her mental health, but she is reportedly asymptomatic, and physicians are still monitoring her physical health.
Wendy’s release date was not immediately known, but it appears that things are improving, as sources claim her mental health is improving every day. Wendy’s 13th season of her talk show, which was supposed to start on Sept. 20, has been pushed back to the first week of October, according to prior reports. “While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19,” her team wrote in an official statement posted to her Instagram account.
We intend to begin the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, October 4th, to enable Wendy time to quarantine and fully heal, as well as to guarantee that our production follows all SAG/AFTRA and DGA COVID-protocols.” Wendy was struggling with “ongoing health difficulties” and would not be able to participate in promotional efforts for the show since she was being evaluated, producers stated last week. Wendy is in our thoughts and prayers right now, and we wish her a speedy recovery.
