Wendy Williams appears to be on the mend!
After the ailing host's talk show was canceled last month following her absence since July 2021 due to several ongoing health woes, it seems she's ready to get back to business, as a source spilled Williams is "determined to move back to New York City and return to TV."
Williams has been recovering from her various medical conditions, including complications from Graves' disease and a thyroid condition, in Florida, where her family and ex-husband Kevin Hunter reside.
An insider close to the daytime diva told The Sun that being in the Sunshine state surrounded by those closest to her has helped her get back on her feet — literally. Williams "no longer needs a wheelchair," the source revealed, while acknowledging: "She isn't fully back, but she seems like 80% of her old self."
"In another couple of months, and I bet she's totally back," the source speculated to the outlet, as the mother-of-one — who shares Kevin Hunter Jr., 21, with her ex — has been making some lifestyle adjustments. "Wendy has vowed not to drink and she is eating much healthier these days and it shows, her legs aren’t nearly as swollen."
And while her show was axed following her months-long hiatus — with Sherri Shepherd taking over her time slot with her new series, Sherri, in September — Williams is "making plans to make a big comeback," dished the source.
Though Williams may be back on her feet, she still has a long way to go when it comes to getting her life back in order.
Apart from now being out of a job, for which she is considering taking legal action against her show's syndication company since she was basically fired while on "sick leave," as a source pointed out, she's also in the midst of a legal brawl with Wells Fargo.
As OK! reported, the bank froze her assets earlier this year, insisting she's an "incapacitated person" who needs guardianship.
Meanwhile, Williams' lawyer has refuted such claims, sharing in a statement: “Wendy wants the world to know that she strenuously denies all allegations about her mental health and well-being."
Despite legal battles and health woes, Williams recently declared to fans that she was "doing OK" in a rare Instagram video posted to her personal account. While walking along a Florida beach with her son, who was filming his famous mama, Williams maintained in the video last month that she planned to come back "stronger" than ever following her September hospitalization for "psychiatric services."
