WENDY Williams’ fans are concerned after the host stuttered, giggled and appeared confused on Friday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show.
Wendy, 56, is known for her bizarre on-camera behavior during episodes, but her recent actions had fans turning to Twitter to express their concern for her well-being.
In one part of the episode, Wendy said “hodel” instead of “Adele.”
She continued: “Hodel. Excuse me, Adele. Hodel! That’s our girl, Adele. She’s hosting SNL tomorrow night. How do you feel about that?… A lot of people said, ‘Well why are you not performing? Why are you just hosting?’ The fans were really mad about her…”
She then paused, took a deep breath and slurred the word “for” before continuing: “For not performing. Listen to me, you fans…”
A crew member then attempted to interrupt Wendy as she lost her train of thought again.
In another scene, Wendy said she would “entertain” Rick Ross while talking about his Miami home, as she giggled and stuttered her way through the segment.
She then confusingly said: “No, no, no, no, no, no, no, I will entertain in the, calm down because I got my own situation and I’m good.”
When the host said, “But and whoever, after midnight,” she laughed and told her crew in the audience, “Leave me alone okay? All the way alone.”
She then randomly said: “I’ve got Air Max on. What do you have?”
The show then showed off her staffer’s footwear on the Shoe Cam.
Wendy laughed: “I like the Shoe Cam music. To me, to me, we need to use…”
She then began dancing in her chair to the music and awkwardly rubbing her knee.
Wendy then called another staffer and directed her to dance by saying: “Model, go! Music please!”
Later on in the episode, guest Baruch Shemtov discussed Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke opening up about her alcoholism on the season premiere.
Wendy ignored him and said: “I can’t deal with you! Just because, Baruch, it’s so good seeing you. It’s so good seeing you.”
Baruch then tried to get back on track by saying: “It’s so good seeing you too. But look at this clip, can I tell you? Braunwyn she came out as an alcoholic on the first episode.
“And then on the most recent episode she spoke very openly about how nervous she was about having to share the news with the other housewives.”
Wendy just continued to say “oh” throughout his segment.
Fans tweeted about Wendy’s odd behavior throughout the episode.
One fan wrote: “Yo whoever let @WendyWilliams on air today should be fired. I don’t even know if she’s said a full sentence. How is that show still on the air?”
A second tweeted: “Watching The Wendy Williams show live is so awkward…something is definitely off about her.”
Another reacted: “Y’all what’s up with Wendy Williams? This live show is awkward (af) the second hand embarrassment is on 1000% #WendyWilliams.”
A fifth commented: “Do I think the Wendy Show is a hot a** mess? Yes. Do I think Wendy knows that? Yes. Would I LOVE to be on the show? ALSO YES! @WendyWilliams.”
And a final bashed: “Wendy Williams been falling apart on tv for the past few weeks.”
On yesterday’s The Wendy Williams Show, Wendy broke down in tears, claiming her show is a “mess” while discussing her biopic.
Wendy revealed in Hot Topics: “Let me tell you something right now, and I will not cry cause it’s very emotional. Bernie, me and all the top people at Lifetime- we have a date for the coming out. I don’t want to say.”
Bernie Young is Wendy’s manager, who she hired last spring after she fired her ex-husband Kevin Hunter from the role.
She continued: “I’ll say this. You’ll see advertisements the Saturday after Thanksgiving…
“I say to Bernie either people will love me or hate me, Bernie… I said a lot in that movie. The movie is wrapped they’re all gone from Vancouver.”
She then stopped gather herself, slapped her face and added: “Oh wow, that’s loud. Oh my god. What the slappy black is going on?”
Wendy concluded: “But I can just only tell you this. Bernie was like they’re going to love you after this. I spilled my truth. That is it. That is it. And the actors and actress in the movie, they did the best. And I can’t say anything more other than what a mess.
“This is such a stupid show. When I watch it back later in the afternoon, I watch with a critical eye, but I watch and say, what a mess.”
It’s been a difficult two years for Wendy, as she and her ex-husband of 22 years finalized their divorce in January.
In March 2019, she revealed on her show that she was living in a sober home at the time.
She said: “I’m moving out of the sober house in just a few days. I have to tell you, I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction, alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I planned for myself and my son.
“Believe me you, when you lay in a room with no TV and four gray walls all day and no telephone… and you lay there and you think about your life – this is my life in the sober house – it’s one of the best things, honestly, that could have ever happened to me.”
The exes, who share a son, recently sold their New Jersey mansion for the cutdown price of $1.5 million. She now lives alone in a Manhattan apartment.
