The producers of the Wendy Williams documentary say they were unaware of the presenter’s dementia

“Where Is Wendy Williams?”, which screened last weekend in the United States, has been the subject of legal proceedings; the documentary does not have a release date in Brazil

The documentary recently screened in the United States Wendy Williams, Where’s Wendy Williams?drew attention to how it deals with the presenter’s mental and physical problems, diagnosed with aphasia and frontotemporal dementia.

Recorded over nearly a year, the production documents Williams’ frailty as he attempted to return to work hosting a daytime program, as well as his family and alcohol problems.

Wendy’s team reassured the public, saying that the presenter “is still capable of doing many things on her own”, and that “she is receiving the care she needs to be protected and to make sure all her requests are met. .”

“In 2023, after an intense series of medical tests, Wendy was officially diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia. Aphasia is a condition that affects language and communication skills, while frontotemporal dementia is a progressive that affects behavior and cognitive functions,” the team said of the diagnosis.

Wendy’s medical team concluded by explaining that they would like to “raise awareness of aphasia and frontotemporal dementia and support the thousands of other people suffering from similar diagnoses,” she says. “We hope we can remove the stigma from dementia patients.”
