On Sunday Afternoon, reports kept popping up saying that Wendy Williams mother, Shirley Williams has died. At this point, early Monday morning there has been no verification of this. The sole source of this information is someone named Courtney Brown, who posted the information on her Instagram. She said her grandmother and Williams were best friends for 83 years. Also she said that Ms. Shirley flew in to speak at her granny’s 100th birthday party. It seemed very credible. The post was taken down a few hours after sites began reporting and naming her as the source.
Multiple small to medium sites immediately began reporting that Wendy Williams mother, Ms. Shirley had passed away. But nothing has been picked up by any of the larger sites as of this morning, or the Local News sites. So, I am hoping that this is not true.
What Happens Now?
I probably won’t be awake to watch Wendy Williams on time this morning and it doesn’t air live here anymore anyway. But if this is true, either there will not be a new show today, Or Jerry O’Connell or someone will come fill in but that would have to be virtual. Or worst case scenario we will get a very fucked up Wendy on set (again).
Wendy was supposed to go out on two dates last Friday according to her. She was just starting to look a little bit better after several weeks of unusual behavior on her live show. If this is true, I don’t know if Wendy can handle any more pain and trauma right now. With Boof out of her life, she doesn’t seem to have a really solid support team. Or much of anyone at all. So, I guess we will have to tune in tomorrow to find out.
A new post was made on the WendyShow IG early Sunday evening. It was generic weekend roundup publicity. Wendy doesn’t run her IG. But all of the comments are offering condolences to Wendy and her family. Every passing hour today has made this more believable. So, let’s wait and see what airs during the show’s live timeslot today. Wendy Williams production team didn’t have much time to come up with a plan so it will most likely be a rerun. No official statement has been made by Wendy Williams or her show at the time of this report.
