Wendy Williams has fans concerned again.
People have been taking to social media to say that lately, something seems off with the Queen of media! Some think she’s having sobriety issues.
Wendy seemingly addressed the matter and said that the audience is a “tough crowd.” She mentioned that even though she’s working her dream job, it’s still work, she’s not perfect and she appreciates people for tuning in. As reported on The Jasmine Brand, Wendy said,
“I always say I love you for watching because I really, really do. You know, I come here every day and I try to do the best that I can for you. I appreciate you watching, but it’s, you know, even after all of these years, it’s still work. You know, an effort put in for the hour that I’m out here with you.”
Wendy watchers have been chiming in online, asking other people if Wendy seems okay. One user said, “something in the milk ain’t clean,” while others are reminding people that Wendy suffers from Graves’ disease. Take a look:
Before assuming that #wendywilliams is high or drunk, remember that she has Graves’ disease. It can affect you cognitively.

I must say that #WendyWilliams producers is so out of pocket for even airing today’s episode & allowing the world to see her in this state. It’s clear that they don’t have her back. 🤦🏾♀️#throwthewholeteamaway

#WendyWilliams the symptoms she is showing is absolutely due to her Graves’ disease as I take the same medication for the same disease I have hyperthyroidism attached to Graves’ disease. So I wish she’d stop using that as an excuse

The Neighborhood Talk blog reported that Wendy staffers allegedly want her to go to rehab. Sources close to ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ told Love B Scott that they believe Wendy had gone back to self-medicating with prescription pills/opioids. The source also said coming to work on the show is like “watching a train wreck every day” and that Wendy’s team tries to use medication she uses for her Graves disease battle as an excuse for her behavior and believes she does need to go to rehab.
Production has reportedly had to rerun episodes due to Wendy’s alleged erratic behavior. The staff reportedly “doesn’t know what to do,” and because of COVID, the staff sits in the audience every show constantly worried if she will pass out on air again. Wendy’s former DJ on the show, DJ Boof also spoke on Wendy’s strange behavior in a since-deleted comment. A fan said,
“Wendy you need to stop your show and seriously get help, your camp is just watching you spiral instead of you sending help shame on them. Ill be boycotting the show until you get checked in to REHAB. Drugs will kill you please get help.” Boof replied,
“Yup exactly and it will all come out.. Ya’ll have no idea what’s really going on and everyone there is afraid to speak up because they don’t wanna lose their jobs.. this is going to play out bad.. I feel sorry for the workers and victims. Have a blessed day.” Take a look:
Wendy admitted to using cocaine early in her career. Last year, the daytime talk show host checked herself into rehab, amid battling Graves’ disease and a divorce from her ex-husband of 21 years (and finding out he had a baby on her).
This is a clip of another episode that had fans concerned. Take a look:
We wish the best for Wendy.
