Wendy Williams is pushed in a wheelchair in NYC

Wendy Williams was seen being escorted by her son, Kevin Hunter Jr, while a helper pushed her wheelchair towards the entrance of her New York City home on Friday.

The 57-year-old reality television personality was carefully assisted by her aid while getting out of a car, and her son was also seen carrying various bags from an errand run.

Williams’ outing comes not long after she tested positive for COVID-19 and abruptly canceled all of her public appearances for the foreseeable future due to ‘ongoing health issues.’

An NYPD spokesperson previously gave a statement to The Sun, who reported that Williams had been driven off in an ambulance after suffering major health complications last week.

‘There was a call for a 57-year-old non-violent female who needed psychiatric services at that address on Wednesday morning. They were transported to the hospital,’ they noted.

An insider later spoke to the media outlet and gave further information about the seemingly troubled television host, who was reportedly ‘drinking every day, even while filming the show.’

They also alleged that those working around the media figure are not interested in seeking help for the embattled personality in an effort to preserve their careers. 

‘Everyone is an enabler because they don’t want to lose their job. They see it, they know it, they smelled the liquor,’ they said.

They also claimed that, although Williams had previously spent time in an alcohol-free living situation, she had fallen off the wagon, which was reportedly known to and willfully ignored by her coworkers.

‘Wendy drinks every day and the only time she was sober was when she was at the sober house. Her staffers are worried but no one is ever going to speak up because they don’t want to lose their jobs,’ they said.

In 2019, DailyMail.com revealed that Wendy was staying overnight at a private facility run by the Pure Recovery Network in Long Island City, New York, after she plunged into an alcohol- and pill-fueled depression when she fractured her shoulder during a confrontation with her cheating husband, Kevin Hunter.

She broke down in tears on her show at the time, admitting she had been living at the sober home and was attending meetings around New York City

The source added that the former radio DJ was ‘an alcoholic. A bad one. She doesn’t need a talk show, she needs help.’ 

Earlier this month, it was revealed that, while dealing with her various conditions, Williams had also contracted the coronavirus, and she has been recovering from its effects over the last few weeks.

A statement from her talk show’s account reads, ‘While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of Covid-19.’

As a result of her precarious situation, the premiere of the 13th season of her show has now been delayed to October 4th.  

However, a source recently spoke to Fox News and expressed that Williams was currently recovering from her various illnesses and was planning on returning to her program in the coming weeks

‘Wendy is on the mend, and doing well. There was a meeting this week, and [execs] assured staff the show will return on Oct. 4., and Wendy is ready to get back to work,’ they said.
