Talk show host, Wendy Williams was reportedly taken to the hospital early this week for a mental health check according to Page Six.
A spokesperson for the NYPD stated that they received a call at 8:43 am on Tuesday requiring an ambulance to transport a 57-year-old woman residing at Wendy’ Manhattan address for a psychiatric evaluation. The patient was taken to Beth Israel Hospital.
British tabloid newspaper, The Sun, claimed the unidentified woman was Wendy.
A source told Page Six she is lonely and continues to struggle with her health.
“It has been a very difficult time for Wendy. She’s a single woman with very few friends. She lost her marriage, her mom, and is living alone. There is a lot on her plate,” the source said.
The premiere for the new season of The Wendy Williams’ Show has been postponed to the 4th October from its original date of the 20th September. Insiders claim the staff of the show are learning from Instagram and news reports “like everyone else.”
Wendy’s alleged hospitalization came one day before her show announced that she tested positive for a “breakthrough case of COVID-19” while “continuing her health evaluations.”
Last week, Wendy skipped her promotional duties because of “ongoing health issues.” Wendy previously has discussed several health issues on her daytime series, including her battle with Graves’ Disease and substance abuse, she was in rehab and a sober-living facility in 2019.
After Wendy’s show announced she would be missing her promotional activities, a source claims that they would be surprised if the host would make it to the premiere.
“People are tight-lipped about it, but there are whispers that she won’t be there,” the source said.
