Aphasia is a disorder that impacts communication, including speech, writing and the ability to understand language. Frontotemporal dementia, also known as FTD, is a progressive condition that effects cognitive function and tends to result in changes in behavior, speech and disposition. Both conditions, her team said, have “presented significant hurdles” in the star’s’ life, acknowledging the ongoing speculation about Williams’ health.

This announcement comes just two days before Williams’ return to television. Two years after canceling her hit talk show, the former “The Wendy Williams Show” host and her family will address the speculation regarding Williams’ health and cognitive abilities in a new Lifetime documentary, “Where Is Wendy Williams?” coming out Feb. 24, 2024.

In 2022, a film crew set out to chronicle the next stage of Williams’ career and her plans to release a new podcast, but the two-part documentary’s tone shifts as Williams’ health takes a lead role, according to People.
