I’ve been one of those delusional people holding onto the idea that we’d see Wendy back in that purple chair some day… but from the sound of things we just need to pray that she gets herself in a good place.
Wendy Williams’s son Kevin Hunter Jr says that her mental and physical health is declining while she’s under guardianship. In an interview with The Sun, Hunter told his side of the story and shed some light on the events of recent months. He accuses various members of her inner circle of taking advantage of her wealth while she battles addiction. Since Williams was put under guardianship last year numerous reports have come out about her declining health.
Among his complaints is a major lack of communication with what’s going on in Wendy Williams’ life. The last time Hunter heard from his mother’s manager was when she was hospitalized last month. Since then, he says he hasn’t been updated on news of her mother’s release at all. He also wasn’t updated when Williams’ was reportedly moved out of New York. Later on in the interview Hunter even goes as far as to say that he fears for her life.
When the subject of his mother’s alcoholism came up, Hunter expressed further concerns. “I know the rate that she uses alcohol isn’t like a normal person- and we’ve spoken about it — and it’s gotten to a point where yes, it could have that effect that it might be fatal because it affects her way worse than a normal person since it stays in her system,” he says. He goes on to clarify that “it could have that effect that it might be fatal.”
Wendy has reportedly been trying to progress her career in recent months. Back in April, she was seen filming at her childhood home for a forthcoming reality show. Just a few weeks ago it came to light that Williams tried to join the cast of The Real Housewives Of New York. Kevin says that his mother should “take a break from trying to progress her career and just be proud of what she’s accomplished.” The situation has already drawn comparisons to the conservatorship of Britney Spears that inspired the #FreeBritney movement. Let us know what you think about Wendy Williams’s situation. Do you see her ever really coming back out on top?
