Charlamagne Tha God ‘Shocked’ That Wendy Williams’ Family Signed Off On Documentary

Charlamagne Tha God says that he was “shocked” by the Wendy Williams documentary and found it “very hard to watch.”

Last weekend, Lifetime aired “Where Is Wendy Williams,” a two-day, four-hour documentary showing the shocking decline of the former talk show host’s health due to progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia.

“The Breakfast Club” co-host — who got his big break in radio working on her “Wendy Williams Experience” on 107.5 WBLS from 2006 to 2008 — told us: “It was sad and I was just like, damn, man.”

“I don’t know who she has around her that truly cares and I was very very shocked and surprised to see that her family was executive producers of this project,” he added. 

The 45-year-old said, “I know her son, Kevin, her niece, nephew, sister and brother all love her and care for her so it’s very interesting to see them participate in this documentary knowing the state she was in. I was just like, damn. You could look at her and tell something’s not right, so why would you want this out there?”

But the “Shook One” author says that documentary doesn’t erase her legacy.

“You can’t erase who Wendy Williams is,” he told us, “You just have to look at all of this in the totality of her existence. Her story is not over. That’s the beauty about life: it is never over until it’s over.

“She had a stellar radio career. She had a stellar fourteen-year run on TV. This is just the current chapter for Wendy Williams,” he said.

The South Carolina native said, “It is not the end for Wendy Williams because she is still here on this planet.”

He added, “I just hope that we all can learn from this. When you see great people fall, don’t laugh; learn from it. It was just poor life choices.”

Lawd help Charlamagne who clearly doesn't have the mental bandwidth to understand what's going on. Her manager is the one who put this documentary together. The family saw it as an opportunity to shed light on the conservatorship Wendy is in, and get her out of this conservatorship.

I also feel since the family was kept out of the loop from the conservator whenever it pertained to Wendy's well being, they signed on as a way to expose the vultures.

Yes Wendy looks bad in the docuseries. However while uncomfortable, I looked at the series as a way to shed light on Wendy's alcohol abuse, and the people she was surrounding herself taking advantage of her.
