Tommy took to his YouTube podcast to give fans an update on his sister Wendy, 57, as she battles Covid and “psychiatric issues.”
“I did speak with Wendy, she’s stabilized, she’s doing alright, you know I can’t give all the blow by blows I told her I’ll never proceed her voice through the show,” he began.
“But I do thank you all for all the kind words, I really do believe and have the faith that Wendy’s going to make it.
“It’s not an easy fight. It’s not one that individuals always win. Sadly, come November we are on the anniversary of my mother passing,” the media personality reminded.
“It’s not easy. This isn’t easy, but it’s necessary.”
Tommy continued: “But she’s doing well, she’s stable, I have spoken with her. We are hanging in there.

“She’s hanging in there. We’re praying. She’s fighting. We’re praying,” he finished.
Tommy’s update followed the news earlier this week that Wendy was “hospitalized” after suffering “psychiatric issues.”
The Sun exclusively revealed that the TV host was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday after a 911 call was made to her New York City apartment building.
The cops arrived at 8 am to assist, and though the NYPD would not confirm that the person in need was Wendy, a spokesperson revealed: “There was a call for a 57-year-old non-violent female who needed psychiatric services at that address on Wednesday morning.
“They were transported to the hospital.”
That same day, the Wendy Williams’ Show’s official Instagram page announced that she was postponing her season premiere, after canceling several appearances last week.
The post read: “While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19.”
“To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover and to ensure that our production abides by all SAG/AFTRA and DGA Covid protocols, we expect to begin the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, October 4th.
“In the meantime, repeats will be scheduled.”
Last week, show producers shared that Wendy was taking a step back from promotional events amid “ongoing health issues and further evaluations.”
They explained: “She will not be able to complete her promotional activities next week, but can’t wait to be back in her purple chair on Monday, September 20th for the 13th season premiere.”
WAITING FOR WENDY
On Thursday an insider revealed to The Sun that Wendy’s staff has been “freaking out” over her health issues and is “skeptical” that the show will be able to return.
“The staff has been back for weeks now anticipating to have the show return at the end of the month,” they disclosed.
“Now with it pushed back, staff is freaking out and becoming increasingly concerned and it doesn’t help that information isn’t being shared internally.
“Everyone is finding out what is happening in the news like everyone else.” they added.
Wendy has fought various health problems for years, including Graves disease, severely swollen ankles from Lymphedema, and now a breakthrough case of Covid.
