As Wendy Williams Enters Wellness Center, A New Story About Her Allegedly Being ‘At Death’s Door’ Has Emerged

Wendy Williams’ health continues to be a subject of speculation — especially when it comes to her history with substance abuse — after the former talk show reportedly checked back into rehab last week. The media personality had opened up to her viewers about staying in a sober living facility in 2019, years before COVID, Graves disease and other concerns prevented her from returning to The Wendy Williams Show. New reports, however, paint a much bleaker picture than we may have realized, as apparently Williams was “at death’s door” in May 2020 due to her alcohol addiction.

The spotlight is back on Wendy Williams’ struggles with addiction amid her entering a wellness facility, and it’s been reported that her habits had taken a toll to the point where she even forgets her talk show has been canceled. As scary as that sounds, a new and even scarier story has emerged, with a source for Page Six recalling a time they discovered the host in a life-or-death situation. The source was apparently among a group of friends who found her in a “catatonic” state in her New York City apartment in May 2020. The insider reports:

It was pretty much a mess. It was a mess. She was in her robe, it was soiled, she was catatonic, she was in a very, very bad state. She was looking at the ceiling. She was just not responsive, but her eyes were open, but she was definitely in a catatonic state.
