Wendy Williams seen PASSED OUT next to champagne glass at NY store in shocking video
This is the latest in the string of troubles that has been plaguing the famous host in recent times
Fans of Wendy Williams are in shock after a new footage surfaced showing the struggling host seemingly unconscious next to a champagne glass inside a Louis Vuitton store in New York City on July 31, Sunday. The former queen of daytime television made an appearance at the luxury clothing brand's SoHo store and greeted a few of her fans, but since the footage was shared online, her fans have become worried.
The 58-year-old Williams was curled up on a bed with her legs crossed and her eyes closed in one video that everyone found unusual. In another video, she was seen sitting straight up on the bed, speaking with someone who appeared to be store security, according to one eyewitness.
Williams was in the SoHo store at about 6 pm, according to the witness who noticed the large glass of what appeared to be champagne. The witness told The Sun that a fan of Williams was taken aback to see the host: "It was weird to see her out. I know she hasn't really been out publicly in a while."
In the TikTok video's comments section, one admirer wrote:, "What the hell happened fr she did not look comfortable with any of the people she was with," while another concerned fan commented, "I'm scared what's going on? Wendy?" Another fan concerned over Williams' health wrote, "She's not well lately and I'm feeling so bad for her 🥺."
Few other admirers appeared to be pleased to see Williams out and about, "Honestly makes me feel good to know she’s alive and able to go places 💖," one fan wrote while another wrote, "Omg I'm just glad to know she's alive 😭." The former 'Wendy Williams Show' anchor has exhibited a string of unsettling behavior patterns, and she has previously spoken openly about her struggles with addiction, including her abuse of alcohol and narcotics.
Kevin Hunter, Wendy Williams' ex-partner, recently slammed the producers of 'The Wendy Williams Show' for failing to help the troubled talk show host overcome her addiction troubles. Hunter claims that the show's production company, Debmar-Mercury, refused to "sign off" on any activity that would take Williams away from her renowned purple chair, so the producers would not permit Williams to obtain assistance. According to a statement Hunter made to Page Six, "Debmar would not support Wendy’s recovery efforts with the family. They would not sign off on anything that would’ve helped her recovery efforts."
The 50-year-old asserted that Williams' family and Debmar-Mercury participated in a phony intervention during which the group discussed methods to support Williams in her battle with alcoholism, with the company offering the single mother an all-or-nothing bargain. He insisted, "They sat in a meeting with her whole family, including her now-deceased mom, and would not sign off on the recovery efforts that would've helped Wendy also get well and live and be sober. They basically said, 'If you don't stop drinking, you're going to lose the show.'"
