Wendy Williams, 59, is diagnosed WITH frontotemporal dementia and speech-affecting aphasia


Wendy Williams has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia and primary progressive aphasia, it was confirmed Thursday.

The care team for the 59-year-old former host of The Wendy Williams Show announced her new diagnosis in a press release.

What The Press Release Reads

They said Williams had undergone ‘a battery of medical tests’ before arriving at the diagnosis, which comes days ahead of the release of her Lifetime documentary Where Is Wendy Williams?, which details her struggles with alcohol abuse and mental health in recent years.

The diagnoses are notably the same as the ones film legend Bruce Willis received in 2022 and 2023.

Since 2023

The statement noted that Williams had been diagnosed back in 2023. The talk show host, who was famous for spreading gossip — and often making her own — has reportedly been living in a treatment facility since April 2023.

Where is Williams?

Her sister, niece and brother recently revealed that they did not know where Williams — who can only be visited by a court-appointed guardian — has been staying, and they can allegedly only speak to her via phone if she chooses to call them first.

Williams has previously shared her battles with the autoimmune disorder Graves’ disease and Lymphedema, a build-up of fluid in the tissues that can lead to swelling of the legs — which the gossip monger has dealt with — and the arms.

Graves’ disease can cause the thyroid to become overactive, and around 30 percent of suffers will display bulging eyes.
