Wendy Williams' Brother Says His Sister 'Is Not The Wendy We All Knew': 'It's Not The Content That Is The Truth, But The Physical'

Wendy Williams’ brother Tommy is reneging on his prior statements to the press about his sister’s health.

According to The Jasmine Brand, Tommy recently made a video on his YouTube page addressing Williams’ health, officially stating that Williams’ health is “struggling.”

"I'm very supportive of Wendy so I tried to keep things under wraps in terms of her health," he said, regarding his prior statements about Williams' health being better than it actually is. "She is fighting, she is struggling. She is working her way back to being Wendy. No, she is not the Wendy we all knew and it's very sad, very heart-wrenching, very disappointing, and it's very frustrating."

Tommy also told viewers that he has tried helping his sister, but Williams won’t let him or other family members into her life. He also said Williams is in denial about the current state of her health, bringing up her TMZ interview in which she revealed her stuttering speech and her lymphedema. Tommy said she told Williams not to do any interviews to keep her health private, but the interview revealed to the world what Williams’ health is really like.

He also said her divorce from Kevin Hunter isn’t what’s affecting Williams’ health, saying, “Her health is the situation…The fact that she needs to be away from people that are doing her wrong, that’s the situation. The fact that family is all down here in South Florida and Wendy is up in New York by herself.”

"…I want to be there badly, but I'm not brought in," he continued. "It's not because Wendy and I are not in a good space because we are, but mentally she's not on board. Oppositionally, she doesn't want me near because she realizes that I'm there to help and I might have some validity to a lot of things I'm trying to push on her. So therefore, she pushes me away." He ended his video with a heartfelt plea for fans to pray for Williams and her health.

Williams’s health reportedly vastly deteriorated before the taping of the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show, which ended up being her last season. The series will now be hosted by Sherri Shepherd under the name Sherri. The new series will air this fall with many of the Wendy Williams Show team still in place.
