Catatonic Williams Williams Was at Death's Door


Last week it was revealed that former daytime talk show host Wendy Williams had checked into rehab to treat her addition issues [click here if you missed that]. 

Now insiders are recalling the time two years ago when Wendy almost died from alcohol abuse...

Wendy Williams was “at death’s door” and ultimately hospitalized for two blood transfusions two years ago due to her worsening alcohol addiction, multiple sources exclusively tell Page Six.
The former daytime talk show host’s struggles came to a head in May 2020 when friends of hers, which included DJ Boof, discovered Williams “catatonic” at her New York City apartment, where her former manager Bernie Young allegedly refused to call 911 out of fear it would become public knowledge.
“I don’t think he understood the extent of what was going on, and I don’t think he wanted it to get out that she was not well, and he definitely didn’t want a 911 call like [what] happened a year later,” Williams’ longtime friend and eyewitness to the incident tells Page Six.
Our source says Williams’ New York City apartment was in disarray as a result of her addiction and her poor health.
“It was pretty much a mess. It was a mess,” the source says. “She was in her robe, it was soiled, she was catatonic, she was in a very, very bad state. She was looking at the ceiling. She was just not responsive, but her eyes were open, but she was definitely in a catatonic state.”
Our source claims they, as well as Boof, insisted that Young call paramedics or Williams’ former sober team, which was headed by Ron Clinton, to get help. In the meantime, our source says they and Boof fed the shock jock ice chips to keep her hydrated.
“She’s going to die. She literally couldn’t stand up,” our source recalls. “She was just lying on top of the covers, and she needed 911 help, and [Young’s] like, ‘We’re not getting 911.'”
Eventually, Williams’ ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, and their son, Kevin Hunter Jr., got on the phone and begged her to get help.
“Kevin and Kevin Jr. were both saying, ‘Please, come on, Mom. Let [Ron and his team] come up,'” our source recalls. “‘Get some help.'”
Kevin Sr. later confirmed to us the aforementioned events involving him and his son.
We’re told Boof then drove Williams in his car to the hospital, where she received two blood transfusions because she was “so low on iron,” multiple sources confirm. She remained under medical observation for about four or five days and had “no recollection” of the events that had transpired.
“Boof was the savior of her f–king life,” a second source says, noting that he went back to her apartment after he dropped her off to dump the alcohol.

The sad thing is Wendy came back and did a whole season after DJ Boof left. They replaced him with Suss one..

So how is Sherri new show? 🤔

And Despite reports of Wendy being in rehab she was spotted the other day in NY trying to locate her car.

Why bring up this ancient Chinese tea now? Just to keep her name in the atmosphere or a lame attempt to garner sympathy and upstage Sherri? Either way it's just more of the same. Wendy has problems. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Hopefully, this stint in rehab will give Wendy the help she needs because if not, she needs to retire and drink herself into a stupor.
