Diagnosis details revealed for Wendy Williams

It’s no secret that Wendy Williams has been suffering from a number for concerning health issues for some time. But this week we learned she had entered a facility that tests cognitive behaviour. Which essentially means how her brain processes commands for her body, etc.

Now it comes out she has been official diagnosed with Frontotemporal dementia. The condition effects cognitive function and tends to result in changes in behavior, speech and disposition. Primary progressive aphasia is a subtype of FTD impacting communication, including speech, writing and the ability to understand language.

The statement explained that Williams’ conditions have “presented significant hurdles” in the star’s’ life, acknowledging the ongoing speculation about Williams’ health.

“Over the past few years, questions have been raised at times about Wendy’s ability to process information and many have speculated about Wendy’s condition, particularly when she began to lose words, act erratically at times, and have difficulty understanding financial transactions,” the release stated. It added that the decision to share this news was difficult, but in doing so, Williams and her team are hoping to raise awareness about aphasia and FTD.

This is just heartbreaking. There will be further information, of course, this weekend when Lifetime presents its special Docu on Wendy called “Where Is Wendy Williams?”coming out Feb. 24, 2024.
