Wendy Williams breaks down in tears as she reveals she has no money any more

Wendy Williams left the spotlight after leaving her chat show in 2021

Former broadcaster Wendy Williams was filmed breaking down in tears as she revealed she has 'no money' in a new trailer for her documentary.

It's been just three years since Williams' chat show, The Wendy Williams Show, came to an end, but the host quickly disappeared from the spotlight and left fans wondering about her wellbeing.

Now, an upcoming documentary is set to offer an insight into the life of the 59-year-old star.

Titled Where Is Wendy Williams, the two-part documentary is set to air on Lifetime and follows Williams and members of her family as she navigates life away from her chat show.

A trailer for the doc was posted on Thursday (1 February), but was deleted soon afterwards. However, the trailer was captured by a social media user and can still be found in various posts online.

In the trailer, Williams addresses the camera and reveals she has 'no money'.

"Let me tell you something - if it happens to me, it could happen to you," she said.

Williams is also seen clutching on to a pillow and crying, while her loved ones express their concern and describe how she was 'crying out for help'.

Wendy's son, Kevin Hunter Jr., claims his mom has 'done a really good job at making it seem like everything's okay' but adds: "In reality, there's something wrong going on."

Elsewhere in the trailer, members of Williams' family express concerns about people taking advantage of her, and about a financial guardianship that she was placed under in 2022.

Her sister, Wanda, gets emotional in the trailer as she says: “We are her family and you tell me that I’m not capable of taking care of my sister. What would you do? What should I do?”

Williams left her talk show as she experienced struggles with addiction, while also living with Graves' disease.

Williams has struggled with addiction.

The condition is an autoimmune condition which causes the thyroid to produce too much thyroid hormone. Symptoms include nervousness, anxiety and irritability, hyperactivity and mood swings.

Before leaving The Wendy Williams Show, the host announced she had been living in a sober house.

The trailer indicates that Where Is Wendy Williams? is set to be released over the course of two days, on 24 and 25 February.

The documentary is the latest project Lifetime has released about Williams, following the Wendy: What a Mess! documentary and Wendy Williams: The Movie, which were released in 2021.

If you've been affected by addiction and want to speak to someone in confidence you can call American Addiction Centers on (888) 830-7624 24 hours, seven days a week, or contact them through their website.
