Daytime TV host Wendy Williams was reportedly taken to a hospital earlier this week for a psychiatric evaluation after she skipped out on promotional duties for her show and was spotted looking frail in hospital socks outside her Manhattan apartment.
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.
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.
