If Wendy Williams thought she could keep some of her embarrassing secrets under wrap, she has another thing coming.
The controversial host of The Wendy Williams Show is said to be under a lot of stress and pressure.
The former radio talk show host gave her fans a major fright on Halloween when she fainted on national TV.
She was rushed to a New York City hospital and was released very soon after and was told to get some much-needed rest.
She returned to the set the following day and told her audience that the Statue of Liberty costume that she was wearing overheated.
Williams also blames the dizziness on menopause. That is what she said, but a new storyline is slowly emerging.
Her staff members are talking to the media, anonymously, of course, and they are singing a very different tune.
One person who works for the entertainment industry figure said that she fainted because of her poor diet.
The insider stated: “Friends and family fear that Wendy’s symptoms could be caused by something much more serious. They know how hard Wendy works on her show, and they also know that, sometimes, long hours mean that Wendy neglects regular meals or other simple needs. They are worried that lack of sleep, stress or poor diet may all be factors that could have led to Wendy fainting.”
The person added: “Friends do not have a clear idea of what might really be wrong, so they have no idea how to help. The feeling among those close to her is that something is seriously wrong and they are desperate to help before things get worse.”
The employee claims that Williams is overworked, feels pressured to stay thin, and therefore does not eat very well.
The individual also revealed that Williams has been in full panic mode since those embarrassing pictures of her husband, Kevin Hunter, casually strolling in the streets of New York with his mistress surfaced online.
The source concluded: “So, Wendy is just burying her head in the sand, and acting like everything is just great, while all the time she is being eaten up inside.”
Williams seems determined to keep the marriage going on no matter what the outside world thinks.
