It seems that back in December of last year, Wendy William‘s friends and colleagues were more worried than we knew when they spoke out about something being very, very wrong with her. At the time, sources reported that Wendy seemed “checked out“, was having trouble standing and “exhibiting strange behavior“. Now it sounds as if they were literally worried that something in the milk (or maybe the tea) wasn’t clean. According to TMZ, in January of this year, the police conducted a wellness check on Wendy after receiving an anonymous tip that her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, was poisoning her. Damn, I knew he was dastardly but I didn’t think he was the mustache twirling type. Mostly because he doesn’t look like he could grow more than 3 or 4 emaciated lip pubes.
TMZ says that when the cops arrived at the house, Kevin “was hesitant” to let them in, claiming she was “sick and recovering from a health problem”. The police report states that after they insisted, he shut the door and made them wait on the porch before eventually letting them in.
When he allowed them to enter, they found Williams in bed “with the blanket covering from neck to toe.”
According to the report … one of the officers asked Kevin to leave the bedroom so they could talk to Wendy alone, but he didn’t want to leave her side. As for the health problem she had — Wendy told cops she was recovering from a broken shoulder.
An officer eventually asked her if there was any truth to the anonymous tip she was being poisoned, and Wendy responded with something like … “Well, I’m very popular.” When the cop repeated the question, the report says she became tearful, but denied there was any truth to it.
Interestingly, the police report is dated January 18, the same day The Wendy Williams Show and “The Hunter Family” issued an official statement informing viewers that Wendy would be taking an extended break to deal with “complications regarding her Graves disease”. I don’t know too much about the symptoms of Graves disease outside of what I’ve heard from Wendy herself, but I have seen Arsenic and Old Lace enough times to side-eye that giant mug of tea Wendy’s always sipping on. Especially if fixing Wendy’s tea was one of Kevin’s regular duties. I know it’s a stretch but according to The Wendy Williams Show’s official website: “The one question Wendy gets asked the most out of everything, is “what’s in your tea?!”, and now I want to know too.
