Girlfriend Wendy Williams gives an update on the health of the troubled host after she went into rehab for struggling with substance abuse.
A source close to Wendy exclusively told The US Sun that the 58-year-old is “a lot better” inside the treatment facility as she is working on her recovery after a series of troubling behaviors and public incidents involving alcohol over the past several months.
The source added, “I can tell you that she is improving a lot. She has improved a lot and is getting stronger.”
“It’s more understandable and comprehensible than it was,” added the insider to the former talk show host who recently expressed high hopes of launching a huge podcast.

The source added that the host continues to work to get to a better place.
“She’s still at the facility. She hasn’t left, but she’s doing very well.”
This is Wendy’s second public rehab attempt since 2019.
