Wendy Williams Has Frontotemporal Dementia And Aphasia

(CTN News) – Wendy Williams has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia and primary progressive aphasia, her team announced Thursday.

She was diagnosed with this disease last year after undergoing a number of medical tests. Wendy’s team stated that the conditions have “presented significant challenges in her life.”.

In the absence of the diligence of Wendy’s current care team, which she selected, and the extraordinary work of the specialists at Weill Cornell Medicine, Wendy Williams would not have received confirmation of these diagnoses. As a result of receiving a diagnosis, Wendy has received the medical care she requires,” Wendy Williams’ team stated in a press release.

An individual with primary progressive aphasia has an impaired ability to communicate as a result of a disorder of the nervous system, according to the Mayo Clinic. Those who suffer from it often have difficulty expressing their thoughts and may lose their ability to converse and write. It is common for symptoms to appear before the age of 65.

According to the Mayo Clinic, frontotemporal dementia refers to a group of diseases that primarily affect the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. A behavioral and personality change, as well as language difficulties, are usually associated with this condition.

Bruce Willis was diagnosed with aphasia in 2022, which progressed to frontotemporal dementia in 2023.

Wendy Williams, 59, previously discussed her battle with lymphedema and Graves’ disease.

A Halloween episode of “The Wendy Williams Show” was interrupted by her fainting in 2017, but she recovered and continued to broadcast the episode. She announced a three-week break after being diagnosed with Graves’ disease a year later.

Despite ongoing health issues, the show was announced to be ending in 2022.

Despite her latest health issues, she is still able to “do many things for herself” and is receiving treatment, according to her doctors.

According to the release, “Most importantly, she maintains her trademark sense of humor and is receiving the care she needs to ensure that she is protected and that her needs are met.”. Messages of support and well wishes are greatly appreciated.

Days before “Where is Wendy Williams?” premieres on Lifetime, the news comes. A two-part documentary about her mental and physical health. Lifetime will air it on Feb. 24 and 25.
