Wendy Williams back in rehab to ‘focus on her health and wellness’

Wendy Williams is back in rehab.
The 58-year-old TV presenter entered a treatment center to “take time to focus on her health and well-being”, her publicist confirmed on Wednesday. (14.09.22)
It came after Page Six reported earlier on Wednesday that the host was receiving treatment for drug addiction, with a source saying Wendy’s issues “worsened” as she went from drinking wine to “drinking vodka”.
Wendy’s publicist, Shawn Zanotti, told the US Sun she went to a ‘wellness’ center to ‘manage her general health issues’.
He added: “She’s taking time off to focus on her health and well-being as she prepares for a major comeback for the next level of her career with ‘The Wendy Experience Podcast’.
“Ms Williams is being cared for by a team of some of the best doctors in the world. We ask for your prayers and best wishes during this time.
Wendy has already sought treatment in New York and Florida.
Sources told Page Six that her one-off series’ production company, Debmar-Mercury, allegedly refused to help Wendy deal with her issues.
The insider reportedly said, “They turned their back on him. They had too much control over someone so vulnerable.
Wendy’s former husband, Kevin Hunter, told Page Six in July that Debmar “would not support Wendy’s recovery efforts with the family.”
He claimed they “wouldn’t sign anything that helped his recovery efforts.”
Concerns over Wendy’s health and well-being resurfaced in early August after the former radio host claimed she was married to an NYPD officer.
She also got into a public battle with her bank, Wells Fargo, after she was barred from her accounts.
Her former attorney claimed in a lengthy statement to Page Six that Wendy’s former financial adviser Lori Schiller ‘left’ her to ‘die’ – with the outlet claiming Lori ‘never responded to the claims’.
Williams has struggled with drug addiction since the start of her career. She got sober and stayed until she seemed to relapse in late 2018 or early 2019. At the time, she took a hiatus from her show for two months, but claimed that it was to treat his Graves’ disease.
