Beloved TV and radio host Wendy Williams dropped out of the public eye after her daytime talk show was canceled in 2022 and ever since, fans have been wondering, “Where Is Wendy Williams?” That’s also the title of Lifetime’s new four-part docuseries, promising “unparalleled access granted by Wendy to film with her and her family for nearly two years” and ” a raw, honest and unfiltered reality of Wendy’s life after she was placed under financial guardianship.”

Ahead of the documentary’s release, Williams’ care team shared the news that the 59-year-old has been diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and dementia. “The decision to share this news was difficult and made after careful consideration, not only to advocate for understanding and compassion for Wendy, but to raise awareness about aphasia and frontotemporal dementia and support the thousands of others facing similar circumstances,” the statement said.

Days before the documentary’s premiere date, a guardian for Wendy Williams filed a lawsuit against Lifetime’s parent company, A+E Networks. Currently, the lawsuit is sealed, which means it’s not publicly known what the case is about, but a representative for Lifetime confirmed their Wendy Williams documentary “will air this weekend as planned.”

Naturally, “Where Is Wendy Williams?” has become a hot point of curiosity and controversy. If you’re wondering when and where to tune in, read on.
