Wendy Williams wants you to know she is doing fine after appearing drowsy and physically unstable on a recent show.
Wendy addressed an ex co-worker's concerns after DJ Boof suggested that the daytime talk show host might be influenced by drugs and alcohol.
Wendy's behavior on Friday's show raised alarms on social media. She was lethargic, slurred her words and took long pauses to collect her thoughts.
Her producers couldn't hide the concern on their faces.
DJ Boof, who quit as Wendy's deejay earlier this year, expressed his concern in an Instagram post on Monday, writing: "...this is going to play out bad. I feel sorry for the workers and victims."
But Wendy insists she is fine and she thanked her fans for continuing to watch. Wendy has been open about her battle with Graves' disease that caused swelling in her legs (lymphedema) that makes it difficult for her to walk.
"I always say I love you for watching 'cause I really, really do. I come here every day and I try to do the best that I can for you," she said during her show on Monday. "I appreciate you watching, but even after all of these years, it's still work. An effort put in for the hour I'm out here, you know? I guess every day is not perfect, but I'm not a perfectionist. I'm not perfect."
Wendy Williams's ex-boyfriend and longtime Deejay is threatening to expose her deepest secrets.
DJ Boof took to social media and threatened to expose Ms. Wendy after she unceremoniously fired him and replaced him with DJ Suss One.
Fans of Wendy's daytime talk show noticed Boof was absent when The Wendy Williams Show returned for a 12th season on Monday, Sept. 21.
DJ Boof, who manned the wheels of steel on Wendy's show for years, was romantically linked to the 55-year-old after her bitter divorce from husband Kevin Hunter last year.
During an Instagram Live session, DJ Boof threatened to air out some of Wendy's dirty laundry.
"Sh*t about to be crazy y’all," he said, before adding: "God don't like ugly. This little DJ is powerful. I didn't know I was this powerful. I didn't know I had this much weight. I did not know the sort of people I know, the sort of handle I got."
He continued: "I feel thankful, I'm blessed. I'm thankful, you know, you never know who really f**ks with you. God don't like ugly, and when I say sh*t about to be crazy, it's about to be crazy."
Responding to a comment from someone who said he "got the juice," Boof said: "I don't got the juice, I don't got the tea, I got the f**kin' coffee."
But insiders say Wendy is unbothered because Boof signed a NDA that prohibits him from discussing her personal business -- otherwise he would've spilled the tea already.
Wendy Williams dropped hints that she went off the market on New Year's. The 55-year-old talk show Diva teased fans with an Instagram image that showed her enjoying a candlelight dinner with someone in Manhattan.
She captioned the image: "Guess who took me for dinner because he likes to watch me eat?!"
Wendy's fans quickly guessed that her dinner date was DJ Boof (since she tagged him in the photo).
Wendy seemed ecstatic in the photo. Her body language says she is smitten with the man sitting across from her.
Body language experts say sucking your fingers generally means you're nervous or regressing to your childhood.
But sucking one finger at a time is a sure sign that her mouth is primed and ready for after dinner sex.
Wendy is coming off a very bad year after divorcing her cheating husband, Kevin Hunter, who fathered a baby girl with his longtime mistress.
