Wendy Williams Makes Rare Public Appearance At 2022 Met Gala After-Party
She's back! Wendy Williams is slowly but surely making her comeback, starting with her attendance at a Met Gala 2022 after-party.
Despite being MIA for months, the embattled host stepped out for the star-studded event on Monday, May 2, at The Standard with Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee.
Williams, 57, donned a color-blocked dress and complimented her look with a purse covered in dollar signs. Since she can no longer wear heels due to her lymphedema, per Page Six, Williams opted for a colorful pair of sneakers.

Lee shared a fun selfie video of the two to his Instagram page ahead of their big night on the town. "Yo, came to New York for the Met Gala, but I wasn’t going to come outside without the sexiest date in New York City. How you doin’?" the blogger asked Williams, who was wearing black bunny ears in the clip.
“How you doin?'” the radio DJ playfully responded.
Williams has been spotted more and more in the public eye as of late since seemingly getting her health woes back under control. As OK! reported, the mother-of-one stepped back from The Wendy Williams Show in September 2021 due to several health woes, one of which was complications due to her Graves' disease. The daytime diva also contracted a breakthrough case of COVID-19 at the time and was hospitalized for "psychiatric services."

And while multiple sources spilled over the past several months that she was no longer the lively daytime diva she was once and that there were "days where she needs help eating, getting out of bed and getting dressed," it looks like she's now doing OK.
However, in light of her absence from her talk show, which saw several guest hosts fill Williams' shoes for the time being, producers decided to replace her with returning guest host Sherri Shepherd, who will be taking over Williams' coveted time slot with her own show, Sherri, in September.
Nevertheless, Williams declared she's planning to return to her talk show "bigger and brighter," although Shepherd is already set to take the reigns, with The Wendy Williams Show's production company, Debmar-Mercury, insisting they are “100 percent committed” to the comedian's new show this Fall.

Williams also hinted at her return to the spotlight last month, telling TV personality Baruch Shemtov while out to dinner in New York that she's planning her "big comeback."
Amid her efforts to salvage her career, Williams is also working to access her frozen accounts from Wells Fargo after the bank claimed they believed her to be the victim of financial exploitation.
