Hello everybody and thank you for joining us. Wendy Williams, a familiar face in daytime television, is confronting a daunting challenge. The former talk show host has been diagnosed with a form of dementia, revealing the news that has left many fans deeply saddened.

Diagnosis Revealed: Primary Progressive Aphasia and Fronto Temporal Dementia

Wendy Williams’ care team disclosed in a press release that she has been diagnosed with primary Progressive Aphasia and fronto temporal dementia. These disorders affect her language, communication abilities, behavior, and cognitive functions. The revelation sheds light on the health struggles the iconic TV personality is facing.

Impact on Wendy’s Life and Career

Family and Industry Reaction

Wendy’s niece, Alex Finny, appeared on “The View” to promote an upcoming documentary about her aunt’s life. While Wendy did not address her dementia diagnosis during the appearance, her family and fans express their heartfelt support for her during this difficult time.
