Wendy Williams needs a legal guardian to access her Wells Fargo accounts due to her current state of health. Obviously, Williams isn’t happy about it.
Wendy Williams has had multiple health issues for some time now. TMZ reported that Wendy Williams had to step away from her show after experiencing serious complications” as a direct result of Graves’ Disease and her thyroid condition. She was also taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation in 2021, according to Daily Mail.
Since then, sources reported to media outlets, including Yahoo Entertainment, that Wendy Williams is doing better every day. Others disagree, including Wells Fargo and ex-manager, Bernie Young, on the state of Williams’s health.
According to The Sun, “The ailing TV host’s former manager Bernie Young, 75, whom she fired earlier this year, quietly filed papers in New York court amid her legal battle to gain control over her Wells Fargo bank accounts, multiple sources confirmed.” The Sun also mentions that Williams’ son, Kevin Hunter, Jr., is currently her power of attorney but has not filed for guardianship of his mother because they both are confident she doesn’t need it.
Wells Fargo has frozen Williams’ accounts because they believe she is an incapacitated person who needs guardianship, according to Page Six. Page Six states that “Williams denies the assertion that she’s incapable of controlling her own finances, despite the assumptions being made regarding her health.”
Wendy Williams vowed to make a comeback to daytime TV despite health issues and Wells Fargo case. According to her phone interview on Good Morning America, she said she was very comfortable working. She even said that everyone is ready to get back to work but to give her three months to settle some personal issues so she can come back.
Unfortunately, her comeback may not be as soon as she anticipated due to this ongoing battle with Wells Fargo. In the meantime, Sherri Sheppard will be taking her timeslot and Jennifer Hudson will be taking Ellen’s timeslot, which makes them both the new faces of daytime TV.
