Wendy Williams appears to be rushed to the hospital for ‘psychiatric services’ as host suffers from ‘health issues’

A WOMAN matching Wendy Williams’ description was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday following a 911 call for someone in need of “psychiatric services” at her New York City apartment building, The Sun can exclusively report. 

The NYPD confirmed to The Sun that cops were called to the swanky high rise to assist a 57-year-old female.

Though the NYPD wouldn’t confirm Wendy, 57, was indeed the woman in need of help, a spokesperson said: “There was a call for a 57-year-old female who needed psychiatric services at the address on Wednesday morning. They were transported to the hospital.” 

A call to a rep for Wendy was not returned.

Also on Wednesday, the Wendy Williams Show’s official Instagram announced that she was postponing her season premiere, after canceling several appearances last week. 

The post stated: “While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19.” 

“To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover and to ensure that our production abides by all SAG/AFTRA and DGA Covid protocols, we expect to begin the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, October 4th.  

“In the meantime, repeats will be scheduled.” 

Last week, the show announced that she was taking a step back from promotional events amid “ongoing health issues and further evaluations.” 

A statement read: “She will not be able to complete her promotional activities next week, but can’t wait to be back in her purple chair on Monday, September 20th for the 13th season premiere.” 

Fans became concerned about Wendy’s health in 2017, when she fainted during a live taping of her show on Halloween. 

At the time, the host blamed the scary incident on feeling overheated and suffering from low electrolytes. 

But in February 2018, the TV star announced that she had Graves’ disease, and had been living with it for years. 

In March, Wendy showed viewers a close-up of her severely swollen ankles while sharing that she suffers from Lymphedema. 

The daytime talk show host admitted she can’t even walk two blocks because of the disease. 

In 2019 , Wendy struggled with her sobriety following an ugly split from her ex-husband Kevin Hunter. 

Wendy and Kevin went through a messy breakup in 2019 after it was reported that his alleged lover had become pregnant with his child.   

The TV host, who has been open about her struggles with alcohol and substance abuse in the past, sought treatment during this difficult period. She reportedly checked into rehab in Florida.  

Wendy returned to New York from her rehab stint and moved into a sober house in early 2019, the star admitted. 

After it emerged that Kevin’s alleged lover Sharina Hudson gave birth in March that year, Wendy filed for divorce from her husband of more than 20 years. 

The pressures of their divorce were further amplified when their son, Kevin Jr, got into an alleged altercation with his father in a parking lot in New Jersey. 

The 20-year-old was subsequently arrested for simple assault – a charge that would ultimately be dismissed.  

Wendy later claimed she knew Kevin had a “side girl” for almost 15 years of their nearly 22-year marriage.
