Wendy Williams is ready to get back to work and is reportedly already making plans for her "big comeback" to TV.
The beloved talk show host was forced to step away from her role with The Wendy Williams Show last year due to ongoing health woes, but according to sources, Williams appears to be looking and feeling better than ever.
The former radio DJ was recently spotted having dinner with TV personality Baruch Shemtov at Fresco by Scott in New York, where they were discussing her next big steps, both personally and financially.
"Wendy was talking to Baruch about her situation with Wells Fargo and she confidently said 'I’m getting my money back very soon,'" a source dished to Page Six.
"She’s ready to get back to work," they said of the 57-year-old. "When you hear her talk… anyone who’s known her for years, knows they’re getting a Wendy who’s ready to work. She’s really in good form."
Another source at the restaurant gushed that Williams looked "vibrant" at dinner — a stark contrast to several photos that have come out in the last year showing her appearing frail and unable to get around on her own.
"She looks great. No one was helping her. It was very different from the person who we’ve seen in the wheelchair," they added to the outlet. "She was walking by herself. No one helped her get in her car. She climbed right in and it was a Suburban."
Although Williams is reportedly hard at work planning her next move in the world of television after losing her talk show slot to Sherri Shepherd, she is currently focused on winning her lawsuit against Wells Fargo. The bank chain froze her accounts earlier this year, claiming they believed her to be the victim of financial exploitation.
"The main thing right now is the finances. That is her focus. Things are in the works. She is coming back to TV and she is getting her money back," the source explained. "She’s planting her roots back in New York and you’ll see a lot more of her. She’s very comfortable, and is enjoying life again. She took some time off and now she’s ‘out with the old and in with the new.’ It’s like a rebirth."
