Known for her witty humour, opinionated nature, and the famous line, "How You Doin'", Wendy Williams' life seems to have taken a turn for the worse. 

The 59-year-old, who previously revealed that she suffers from Graves' Disease and Lymphedema, has now been diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia​ and frontotemporal dementia.  

"Over the past few years, questions have been raised at times about Wendy's ability to process information and many have speculated about Wendy's condition, particularly when she began to lose words, act erratically at times, and have difficulty understanding financial transactions," her team said in a statement.

The news of the devastating diagnosis came just two days before the release of the first part of the documentary, ‘Where Is Wendy Williams?’.

According to People, the documentary follows Williams' life as she spiralled following the cancellation of her talk show, ‘The Wendy Williams Show’, due to alcohol addiction and several health issues. 

Here are some of the biggest bombshells revealed during both nights of 'Where Is Wendy Williams?':

1.   Wendy opens up about her alcohol addiction: "I love Vodka".

2.  Wendy can only feel about "6 per cent" of each foot due to her lymphedema.

3.   Wendy allegedly got high five times a week in the 90s.

4.   She was found unresponsive in 2022 by her show deejay, DJ Boof.

5.   Wendy claims her guardian has stolen money from her.

6.   Wendy has "alcohol-induced dementia".

Kevin Hunter Jr. (Williams'son) said he was given a diagnosis by doctors his mom was seeing in Florida. "Because she was drinking, I think they said it was alcohol-induced dementia," he says.
