After Wendy Williams was hospitalized this week, the staff at The Wendy Williams Show are said to be worried about the future.
An ambulance was pictured outside the TV personality's Manhattan apartment building earlier this week. "There was a call for a 57-year-old non-violent female who needed psychiatric services at that address on Wednesday morning," a spokesperson told The Sun. "They were transported to the hospital."
Sources told TMZ that Williams was voluntarily admitted to a hospital in New York City for a psych evaluation. As the talk show host has been struggling with her mental health for some time, the sources said it was not a surprise.
The outlet reported that it is not clear when Williams will be released, but her mental health is improving every day.
As OK! previousy reported, Williams previously delayed the premiere of the new season of The Wendy Williams Show after testing positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19. Sources told TMZ that Williams is asymptomatic, despite the positive COVID-19 test.
Meanwhile, insiders told The Sun that her daytime talk show's staff was learning updates from news reports and social media "like everyone else."

"The staff has been back for weeks now anticipating to have the show return at the end of the month," an insider told the publication. "Now with it pushed back, staff is freaking out and becoming increasingly concerned and it doesn’t help that information isn’t being shared internally."
Prior to the COVID-19 diagnosis, the Ask Wendy: Straight-Up Advice for All the Drama In Your Life author had stepped back from promoting the upcoming season of her show due to health concerns.
"Mine [my feet] are discolored. They're hardened. I can't wear boots," Williams said of her Lymphedema in March. "I can't believe in our comment section people say, 'why does she walk like that?'"
"Well if you see me in an airport, you'll be like is that Wendy in a wheelchair? Yup. I can't even walk two city blocks. You know you got the numbness and whatnot," she added. "It's not curable."
