Wendy Williams is a prominent voice behind celebrity news and gossip. As the host of her syndicated daytime talk show“The Wendy Williams Show,” the 55-year-old doesn’t mince words when delivering her opinions on her show’s “Hot Topics” segment.
“She’s sparkling, lovely, and mannerable, and smart,” Williams said of Carter.
Williams couldn’t remember Carter’s ex-boyfriend, Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci.
The fact that the MC is 29 years old with multiple kids, as related to the show host by a member of her staff, made Williams respond with “What was she even doing with him?”
While some fans applauded Williams’ commentary on the 21-year-old, they mainly expressed their concerns about Williams not looking too well during the taping.
“I love you, Wendy, but I’m worried about you! I hope you have ppl looking after you.”
“Wendy looked so tired and uninterested today.”
“Wendy seems depressed. Drunk or on Xanax.”
“Wendy is kinda sluggish today! 👀 Not as peppy….hope everything is A-ok! 👌🥰.”
“Are you good? I’m worried about you. Are you spiraling? Please get some help now.”
“😴 The energy is LOW today.”
“Where is Wendy Williams from the staged show. Cuh, this ain’t dawg!! Just say, ‘n!! And how you do’n!??”
“Wendy look like this cause when u in everybody business but your own..makes u miserable.”
Williams did have a decade long-addiction with cocaine. She discussed her addiction in an interview with “In Touch.”
“I was in deep. I wish I hadn’t put my life in jeopardy, but I have no regrets, because it’s made me who I am today, and I’m proud of me,” Williams said.
The mother of one also described herself as a functioning addict. In October 2017, she collapsed during a taping of her show, an incident that made headlines everywhere.
This year Williams also revealed that she is now divorced, something she ’fessed to in a January appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.”
“After nine months, yes, I am fully divorced. A door has closed — an old life. The new chapter has been so lovely,” she told the host Jimmy Fallon.
Maybe sheltering in place is taking a toll on Williams, contributing to her looking tired. Whatever it is, hopefully, Williams doesn’t spiral out of control and will look upbeat during her next taping.
