Wendy Williams Drops A Major Hint About Her Current State Of Mind

While Wendy Williams has reigned as one of the top talk show hosts on television for over a decade, "The Wendy Williams Show" is currently under fire. After the New Jersey native was forced to skip out on the latest season of her daytime show due to ongoing health issues caused by Graves' disease, she was officially replaced. Taking over for Williams is former "The View" co-host Sherri Shepherd (via The Washington Post).


The co-presidents of the series' distributor, Debmar-Mercury, said in a statement, "Since Wendy is still not available to host the show as she continues on her road to recovery, we believe it is best for our fans, stations, and advertising partners to start making this transition now" (per Today). Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein added that they've enjoyed their partnership with Williams and would love to work with the legend again in the future. 

While the pair didn't envision that future coming about so quickly, the 57-year-old's latest Instagram post suggests she may be ready to renew her contract.

Wendy Williams is "ready" for whatever comes next

Amidst making headlines for her health complications, legal troubles, and absence from her talk show, Wendy Williams took to Instagram to share a smiling photo with her fans. The media personality posted a snap of herself wearing a leopard print jacket while holding a Louis Vuitton purse. The caption for the photo read, simply, "Ready." Though she failed to elaborate on what she's "ready" for, her March conversation with "Good Morning America" may fill in the blanks. 


During a phone interview with the daytime talk show, Williams said, "This is what I would to say to my Wendy Watchers: Keep watching because I'm going to be back on the 'Wendy Show' bigger and brighter than ever." In addition to fighting for her return to television, Williams has filed a lawsuit against Wells Fargo to regain access to her frozen account (via Page Six). 

The bank is claiming that Williams is an "incapacitated person" and needs a guardian to oversee her financial decisions. Her lawyer, LaShawn Thomas, is arguing that she's "of sound mind." In an Instagram video explaining the situation, Williams said, "I want to see all my money that I worked hard for my entire life. My entire life. I don't lie, and I don't cheat, and I don't steal. I am an honest, hardworking person." Fans were initially worried about the television personality after the video was posted.


While it's unclear when Williams will head to court to settle the matter, it seems the star is ready for whatever may happen.
