Wendy Williams’ friend admits he’s ‘very concerned’ about ailing star & she’s ‘turned off phone’ after hospitalizations
WENDY Williams’ friend Rob Shuter has shared his concerns for the ailing star after being unable to contact her.
The journalist claimed that Wendy, 58, turned her phone off after being rushed to a hospital late last week.
Rob said on his Naughty But Nice with Rob Shuter podcast: “I want to say a prayer for Wendy Williams.
“I’m hearing bad things. All her friends are very concerned.
“Her rep denied that she was hospitalized last weekend however people I’m talking to are really, really worried about her.”
The U.S. Sun exclusively revealed last week that Wendy went to the hospital twice in the last two weeks.
One insider close to the ailing star said: “Wendy first went into the hospital about two weeks ago. She was released briefly last weekend, and she went right back in.”
A second source said her family is aware she’s been hospitalized, but they don’t have all the details about what happened as of yet.
“All I know is she is in the hospital right now, and it’s not rehab. I don’t know which hospital,” the second source said.
Wendy had to cancel a major $25,000 speaking engagement at the Atlanta Women’s Expo.

Rob said: “When the news first broke I called her and this is what made me really scared, it went straight to voicemail.
“It’s really strange that it went straight to voicemail. She normally answers and if she doesn’t answer, it’ll ring and ring, you leave a message and she calls you back.
“She didn’t call me back. There’s a couple of things here that make me really concerned. What does it mean when your phone goes straight to voicemail?”
Rob added: “I do know a few other people that she talks to and we all spoke this weekend. We’re all really worried.”
Wendy’s friends aren’t the only ones concerned for the former TV host.
Wendy’s brother recently told The U.S. Sun about his fears for his famous sister’s well-being after seeing her in Florida in April while she was filming her upcoming documentary.
Wendy’s younger brother said he and his elderly father filmed with Wendy over the course of several days in April.
He told The U.S. Sun: “This is not a woman who is in the right frame of mind to get a show going.”
Tommy, 54, wondered why the film crew was even there.
“Why are you even here? Do you see the condition she’s in? Does it look like she’s ready to start a podcast for goodness sake? It doesn’t.”
“And we are all going to bear witness to this.
“This guy Will is ponying Wendy around- ‘travel here, travel there, let’s go make this money, and I don’t care if you’re making sense because everybody knows who you are,'” he said, referencing Wendy’s manager, Will Selby.
“And the shock value is going to be where she was and where she is now?” Tommy questioned while motioning his hands.
“Is that going to be the show? Is that it? Is that what my dad has to look forward to watching? To shove our face in the f***ing manure?
Tommy said the crew has a lot of footage for the reality series.
“Whatever they do with it, they’re gonna do. It’s gonna be sad.”
