Wendy's best friend of 44 years claims she hasn't spoken to her in a year.

This comes three months after it was revealed Williams had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia and the language disorder aphasia. The former Wendy Williams Show host has been battling a series of health issues in the last few years, forcing her career to come to an end in June 2022.

"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,” Williams' team announced in a statement in February.

“Despite the diagnoses, Wendy is still able to do many things for herself,” her team continued. “Most importantly she maintains her trademark sense of humor and is receiving the care she requires to make sure she is protected and that her needs are addressed.”

“She is appreciative of the many kind thoughts and good wishes being sent her way.”
