He said, “Thank you all for the kind words. I do believe and have faith that Wendy is going to make it.”
“It’s not an easy fight. It’s one that individuals always win. Sadly, come November, we are on the anniversary of my mother’s passing," he continued.
“I really do believe and have the faith that Wendy’s going to make it… We’ve been hit just like other families. You know it’s not easy [but] you got to dig yourself out, you got to hold on to the memories and we have some good ones.”
Tommy continued, “It’s not easy. This isn’t easy but it’s necessary. She’s doing well. Stable. I’ve spoken with her, and we’re hanging in there. She’s hanging in there. We’re praying. She’s fighting.”
The drama started on September 9 when Wendy’s team released a cryptic statement. It read, “Wendy is dealing with some ongoing health issues and is undergoing further evaluations.”
The team said Wendy would not be able to perform her promotional activities the following week but was expected to return for the premiere on September 20.
A couple of days later, the show updated the statement to claim Wendy was “continuing her health evaluations” and had tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19. They said, “we expect to begin the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, October 4th.”
They announced the premiere date was pushed back to October 4. Sources then revealed Wendy was actually hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation one day before her team announced the show would be delayed.
Wendy was taken to a New York hospital where she has been ever since. Tommy’s decision to share an update on Wendy’s health is interesting given their own beef last year. Tommy accused his sister of not going to their mother’s funeral last year which caused a rift between the two.
