Page Six reported that police sources confirmed an ambulance was called to Williams’ apartment on Tuesday morning to transport an unidentified 57-year-old woman for a psychiatric evaluation at Beth Israel Hospital. 

The 57-year-old unidentified woman was Williams, The Sun reported. 

The talk show host, who recently revealed she’s canceled all promotional events for her hit show to deal with ‘ongoing health issues’ is reportedly struggling with ‘loneliness’

‘It has been a very difficult time for Wendy,’ a source told Page Six. ‘She’s a single woman with very few friends. She lost her marriage, her mom, and is living alone.’  

‘There is a lot on her plate,’ the source added.

On Wednesday, Williams revealed that she has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19 and that she would be continuing health evaluations in order to allow her time to quarantine and recover.  

Her COVID-19 diagnosis led to the new season of her hit show ‘Wendy Williams Show’ to be postponed from September 20 to October 4, according to the show’s official Instagram.

The COVID-19 diagnosis came a few days after she was spotted looking frail and dressed in a robe and blue socks as she was led into her Manhattan apartment building. 

Exclusive DailyMail.com photos from last Friday showed the TV host stepping out of a black SUV wearing a gold and cream robe and what look to be hospital socks as she walked on the wet New York City pavement.

Wendy, 57, wore a black mask as she was led by hand from the car to her home by her manager Bernie Young. Her son Kevin Hunter Jr, 21, was also seen entering her building behind a wheelchair and later caught an Uber to leave the home.   

Williams’ recent trip to the hospital for a mental check is the latest in a series of health issues the TV icon has dealt with in the past few years. 

Last year it was announced that she would be taking a break from her daytime talk show while she battled with health issues related to her Graves’ disease diagnosis.

Graves’ disease is an immune system disorder of the thyroid gland that causes anxiety, tremors, as well as puffy or bulging eyes.

Wendy first gave the public cause for concern in October 2017 when she collapsed on camera during a taping of her talk show.

She told her audience of her Graves’ disease diagnosis in early 2018.

‘My thyroid has been totally cattywampus. I feel like there are birds swimming around my head … Constantly high. But not high,’ she said. ‘My doctor has prescribed – are you ready? Three weeks of vacation. I was pissed. Encore performances, really?’

Wendy also revealed she was diagnosed with lymphedema in 2019.

‘It’s not going to kill me, but I do have a machine -and how dare you talk about the swelling of it all,’ she said on her show. ‘I’ve got it under control, and if [the swelling in] my feet and lower things never go all the way down, at least I have this machine.’

In 2018 Wendy spoke to PEOPLE about the immune system disorder.

‘I feel a hundred percent better than I was a few months ago. I had a storm going in my body is the best way I can explain it,’ she said at the time.

‘It came from me neglecting my six-month endocrinology appointment. I have Graves’ disease and hyperthyroid. If you have one you don’t necessarily have to have the other, but I have both, and I was diagnosed with both 19 years ago,’ Wendy said.
