On Thursday, March 17, the embattled media mogul, 57, gave an exclusive phone interview — as Williams did not want to appear on camera — to Good Morning America, where she finally addressed her health struggles, legal rift with Wells Fargo and headline-making news that her show was being handed over to recurring guest host Sherri Shepherd.
While insisting she's completely of "sound mind," she told journalist T.J. Holmes, "[My] health is very well. And I've actually had a few appointments. You know, I'm 57 now and I have the mind and body of a 25-year-old."
Williams then addressed her ongoing lawsuit with Wells Fargo after the bank froze her accounts in a move she claimed blocked her from being able to make mortgage payments, as well as keep up with her employee payroll.
As OK! reported, the bank locked her out fo her accounts because they believed the New Jersey native "was of unsound mind" and needed guardianship.
"They say anything, including something crazy like that, about me," Williams went on to say in the interview. "They're saying that I need somebody to handle my accounts and I don't want that. I want all my money. I want to see all my money that I've worked hard for my entire life. I don't lie, I don't cheat, and I don't steal. I'm an honest, hard-working person."

Aside from her ongoing legal brawl with Wells Fargo, Williams touched on her interest in a return to the spotlight after her production company announced in February that her talk show, which ran for 13 seasons, was coming to an end, with the 30 Rock star taking the time slot with her own show, Sherri, starting in September.
"I'm very comfortable. My partners with the show, everybody's ready. Give me about three months," the Think Like A Man star proclaimed of her possible television return. "There are private things that I have to deal with and then I'll be ready to come back and be free and ready to do my thing."
And while rumors of her upset with the show change-up have been circulating, Williams concluded: "This is what I would love to say to my Wendy watchers: Keep watching, because I'm going to be back on the Wendy show bigger and brighter than ever." (It's unclear how Williams' possible return to showbiz would play out given her production company's recent announcement of the show's ending.)
The daytime diva has not returned to her namesake talk show since July 2021 due to ongoing health issues, including complications from Graves' disease, a thyroid condition and past hospitalization for "psychiatric services."
