The disappearance of Wendy Williams has left The National ENQUIRER readers shook. Our spies have exclusively shared that the daytime TV mogul hasn’t been seen at her New Jersey home for nearly a week amid health fears and the latest news of her extended leave from The Wendy Williams Show.
Her husband, Kevin Hunter, came and went from the house on Friday, January 11, and Saturday, January 12, but he appeared to be the only one at the house. On Sunday, January 13, Hunter drove away and returned with Williams in the passenger seat.
“Wendy looked frail, I didn’t see her for long but it was definitely her. She had a huge blonde wig on, and she looked ill. She was not having a good time. I couldn’t see the arm she has hurt, but she appeared delicate,” an eyewitness revealed. “Kevin seemed angry. He drove the car straight into the garage. Wendy didn’t leave the house after that, or all the next day. She must be really ill and hurt.”
On top of that, it’s rumored she was away from her New Jersey mansion the week prior to that, but at an unknown location.
The unclear whereabouts of Williams, 54, even left the staffers of her show confused. Her husband and exec producer of her eponymous daily series called a meeting with the team, but didn’t let up details. “Everyone thought Kevin was going to provide an update on Wendy’s health, but instead he ranted for almost an hour about the leaks coming out of the show!” our insider dished.

On Friday, January 18, Williams updated folks on her condition via Twitter. “As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend,” said the Williams Hunter family statement. “Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment. Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital. Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being. Wendy thanks everyone in advance for their well-wishes and for respecting her and The Hunter family privacy during this time.”
Debmar-Mercury seconded. “For over ten years, Wendy has been a vital part of the Debmar-Mercury family. We wholeheartedly support Wendy in this decision to take the time she needs and we will welcome her back with open arms the moment she is ready.”
