Wendy Williams Heads To Miami With Son Kevin Hunter Jr., Insists She's Getting Talk Show Back: Source
Wendy Williams is back in South Florida after declaring she's ready to do her show again, despite The Wendy Williams Show getting replaced by Sherri Shepherd's new series.
The embattled talk show host was reportedly spotted at New Jersey's Newark Airport on Thursday, March 17, with her son, Kevin Hunter Jr., as they waited for their flight to Miami.
According to TMZ, Williams — who has been battling multiple health issues for months now, including complications from Graves' disease and a thyroid condition — was holding on to her son at times, as he guided her through the airport to their commercial flight.

Though she was reportedly relying on her son from time to time, Williams wasn't using a wheelchair, which was major progress, given she's previously been seen out in public being carted around. The ailing host has been spending time in the sunshine state visiting family, as well as seeking help at a wellness center in Miami, which is where she may possibly be heading.
Williams and Kevin landed in Miami at around 12:30 AM, and according to the outlet, the 57-year-old was overheard telling a fan who asked about her TV return that she's in the process of getting her show back. Williams also assured her supporter that she's working things out with her money, referring to her Wells Fargo lawsuit.
As OK! reported, the TV personality made similar claims about her health and legal woes during her first sit down interview since she stepped back from The Wendy Williams Show in September 2021. During her exclusive phone interview with Good Morning America last week, Williams insisted she'll be ready to return to her show in "about three months."
As for her lawsuit with Wells Fargo after the bank froze her accounts, due to concern that she was of "unsound mind" and needed guardianship, Williams maintained she's completely of "sound mind."
Noting: "[My] health is very well," and declaring, "I'm 57 now and I have the mind and body of a 25-year-old," Williams slammed the bank for insisting she was anything other than perfectly fine.
"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," Williams pointed out during her GMA interview. "I don't lie, I don't cheat, and I don't steal. I'm an honest, hard-working person."

Though show producers announced the cancellation of Williams' show at the end of last month, she's making it clear she's not done with showbiz, leading fans to wonder what's next for the troubled mother-of-one.
Amid the uncertainty of her career, Williams concluded her phone call interview by encouraging her "Wendy watchers" to "Keep watching, because I'm going to be back on the Wendy show bigger and brighter than ever."
Since Williams stepped back from her famed purple chair last year, The Wendy Williams Show has seen a slew of celeb guest hosts fill in, with Shepherd scoring the 13-season show major ratings.
