I completely understand what Charlamagne meant… but the thing that I’m getting from this trailer is that this doc may be more so meant to raise awareness to get Wendy out of this guardianship situation. Almost like a ‘Free Wendy’ movement, if you will.
‘Where Is Wendy Williams’ is a tell-all documentary from the radio and TV legend set to air on Lifetime later this month. The first trailer for the two-part show is the first sighting of Williams in over a year after she retired from public view due to ill health. The trailer is not exactly easy viewing. Williams drinks and cries as she recounts her long struggle over the past few years.

It’s unclear if this is the documentary that Williams was spotted filming in early 2023. The last time Williams was seen in public was at her childhood home in New Jersey as part of a new reality show that was expected to air last fall. However, fall came and went without a release, leaving fans confused and concerned for Williams.
Furthermore, the news of the documentary comes around a week after news broke concerning Williams’ current location. Radio host and Williams’ long-time friend Miss Jones claimed that Williams had quietly relocated to Florida with her family “several months ago”. Jones revealed that she had attempted a wellness check on Williams, only to be told by employees at Williams’ former building that she was “several months too late”. The moved reportedly coincided with revelations about Williams’ health, as well as the fact that her family were concerned that her team was “taking advantage” of her. Williams’ son claimed that her team were making decisions on the media veteran’s behalf and had even frozen Williams out of her bank accounts.
The trailer has sparked much concern and mixed reactions, with the most notable coming from Wendy’s former co-host from her radio days, Charlemagne Tha God. On this morning’s episode of The Breakfast Club (Feb 2), Charla questioned why anyone would want to have cameras in Wendy’s face during this time and suggested that she was being taken advantage of:
“I immediately prayed for Wendy after I watched that and I don’t understand why they got the camera in that woman’s face. For what? Taking advantage of the disfunction.. Why do you want to document somebody’s downfall? Like why?”
