Wendy Williams was having a particularly rough time last May, new reports reveal. According to Yahoo Life, while filming The Wendy Williams Show from her home as the COVID-19 pandemic was peaking, the 57-year-old had too much to drink and “began stripping down and touching herself in an inappropriate way” in front of concerned bystanders.The article notes that the mother of one previously spent some time at a sober house in 2019, but when her team noticed her unusual behaviour the next year, they called her manager to come to check on her. Upon arrival, they found an intoxicated Williams, who, after putting on quite the show for onlookers, left them with no option but to call 911.

After the call was made, the New Jersey-born broadcaster allegedly became even more belligerent and was ultimately “hospitalized for weeks” as her show went on hiatus. At the time of her hospitalization, a statement was released claiming that it was due to complications with her Graves’ disease.

“Recently, Wendy has been dealing with symptoms from her Graves’ disease which is causing fatigue. In consultation with her doctor and as a precautionary measure, she will be taking some time off as she continues to receive treatment,” it explained.
