Wendy Williams

A well-known personality on daytime television for more than a decade, Wendy Williams stepped down from “The Wendy Williams Show” in 2021 citing health concerns. Her challenges were clarified when her care staff recently disclosed that she had dementia and primary progressive aphasia.

The announcement came before “Where Is Wendy Williams?”, a Lifetime documentary, aired. The first two episodes, which debuted on Saturday, focus on Williams’ health issues that caused her to leave the talk show and the guardianship that followed.

Facing Frontotemporal Dementia

Last year, Wendy, now 59, received a diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia, a type of cognitive decline causing memory loss and personality changes. This news sparked comparisons with Bruce Willis, who shared a similar diagnosis in 2022.

Williams’ Challenge with Guardianship

Following court-ordered guardianship in April 2022, Wendy and her family found themselves navigating restricted communication. The details of the lawsuit filed by Wendy’s guardian against Lifetime’s parent company remain private, yet the documentary’s filming had the nod from Wendy’s guardianship attorneys.

Realities of Frontotemporal Dementia

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD), an irreversible neurological condition impacting speech and language, is Wendy’s current challenge.

  • This uncommon condition worsens over time with no known cure and typically affects individuals aged 45 to 64. The documentary provides an intimate look into Wendy’s journey, revealing the human side of her battle with FTD.
