Wendy Williams has reportedly been hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation after suffering a psychotic break.
According to TMZ, the 57-year-old host was voluntarily admitted to a hospital in New York on Wednesday for a psychiatric hold.
Police responded to a 911 call about a “non-violent” 57-year-old woman behaving erratically at Wendy’s luxury high-rise in Manhattan.
She was bundled into an ambulance and transported to a NY hospital where she was admitted for a mental health evaluation.
Wendy, who is fully vaccinated, was previously hospitalized after she tested positive for a “breakthrough case” of Covid-19. A source told TMZ that Wendy is currently “asymptomatic”, meaning she is showing no symptoms of Covid.
Breakthrough cases occur when fully vaccinated persons are infected with Covid-19.
According to the Centers for Disease Control data on breakthrough cases: “Vaccine breakthrough cases are expected,” and “no vaccine is 100% effective at preventing illness.”
It’s unclear at this stage when the talk show Diva will be discharged from the hospital. However, the insider told TMZ that her mental health “continues to improve each day”.
It isn’t clear what triggered Wendy’s mental break. She recently began dating again after breaking off a mentally abusive relationship earlier this year.
Due to Williams’ mental and physical health issues, the premiere of the new season of The Wendy Williams Show has been pushed from September 20 to October 4.
