Wendy Williams made a rare video appearance from her winter home in Florida, where she is visited often by her loyal son, Kevin Hunter Jr.

The 57-year-old daytime talk show host has been out of work since July 2021 when she was sickened by COVID, despite being fully vaccinated.

Her Wendy Williams Show has seen a revolving door of hosts, including actress/comedienne Sherri Shepherd, who was given the permanent hosting gig.

Despite reports that she is mentally incapacitated, Wendy sounds alert and oriented and appears to be her old self. She assured her fans that she plans to come back "stronger" than ever.

"I wanna be all I can be and then get back to New York and get on down with The Wendy Williams Show," she said Wednesday.

In the video, filmed by Kevin, 21, Wendy could be seen walking along the beach in Miami, Florida, where just three months earlier, she was wheelchair bound.

"It's just after 8 o'clock in the morning and I'm doing OK, you know? It's very peaceful here," Wendy told Kevin, before revealing that she takes a walk along the beach every morning before heading to the gym for a cardio workout.

The mom-of-one wore a black hooded sweatshirt and a New York Yankees baseball cap, as the wind whipped her blonde tresses.

Wendy Williams appeared frail and sickly in a bathrobe and blue socks as she arrived home after a hospital stay on Friday.

Wendy is pictured above with son Kevin Hunter Jr. in May before she fell ill and was admitted to a hospital recently.

A photographer snapped the shocking photos of the feeble-looking daytime TV host as she was assisted from a limo while someone pushed a wheelchair behind her on Friday.

Wendy, who was diagnosed with Graves' disease in 2018, wore blue compression socks on the wet NYC pavement the day after announcing she's canceled promotional events for her show due to "ongoing health issues."

Wendy looked dehydrated and her legs were ashy. See the shocking photos here.

Kevin Jr. was seen wheeling a small suitcase into Wendy's luxury high-rise building in Manhattan.

The photos sparked reports that Wendy's health is failing after years of prescription drug and alcohol abuse. She was admitted to an inpatient sober living center in 2019 after her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, welcomed a daughter with his longtime mistress.

Wendy canceled a week of promotions due to her "ongoing health issues."


A statement posted to Instagram Thursday read:

"Wendy is dealing with some ongoing health issues and is undergoing further evaluations.

"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."

Wendy Williams posted a birthday tribute to her son filled with keepsakes from when he was born. But the sentiments of Wendy's post wasn't well received by her Instagram followers.

The 56-year-old daytime talk show Diva honored son Kevin Hunter Jr.'s 20th birthday with an Instagram tribute featuring keepsakes she'd held onto since he was born.

"Today is my biggest day! Son Kevin & I are celebrating his 20th birthday... He's in Miami & I'm in NYC, but love never stops," she wrote in the photo caption. "If you look closely you'll see remains of 1st hair cut, my cerclage is on sneaker, like a mom... I DO have all his teeth.

"I'm not a fan of cake, but today OK... for my son? What are you doing?"

After Googling "cerclage," some of Wendy's followers expressed their disgust.

"I'm more concerned about the cerclage ... it's the stitch(es) that hold your cervix closed. Whhhhyyyyy," wrote one IG user.

Another wrote, "What in the voodoo witchcraft is all that hair."

But others were more understanding, particularly those with an only child, like Wendy.

"I don't see anything wrong with this post still have two of my sons hair from their first hair cut and baby teeth and pics," wrote an IG user.

Kevin Jr. attends college in Miami.
