Wendy Williams’ Guardian Files Lawsuit Against A&E/Lifetime Before Release Of ‘Where Is Wendy Williams?’

As viewers anticipate the premiere of the documentary series Where Is Wendy Williams?, a lawsuit has been filed against the company that distributes Lifetime (the network showcasing the film), A+E Networks.

Just days before the docuseries airs on the Lifetime Network on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 24 and 25, Sabrina Morrissey, who is listed as the temporary guardian of “W.W.H.” (seemingly the initials for “Wendy Williams Hunter”), filed the lawsuit under seal. She is also seeking a temporary restraining order.

Morrissey, who is also seeking injunctive relief for Williams, filed the paperwork on Feb. 22 in the New York Supreme Court. Entertainment One Reality Productions is also named in the suit. A+E Networks formally filed an appeal on Feb. 23.

The trailer for the docuseries was released earlier this month on Feb. 1, and revealed that in it, Williams breaks her silence about her exit from her daytime television show in 2021.

In the trailer, Williams, who is also an executive producer of the project, turns to the camera and gives a stark warning to those watching.

“I have no money,” she stated. “And let me tell you something: If it happens to me, it can happen to you.”

That news arrived right after it was revealed that Williams has been diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia, according to her medical team.

A press release from her medical team stated, “The decision to share this news was difficult and made after careful consideration, not only to advocate for understanding and compassion for Wendy but to raise awareness about aphasia and frontotemporal dementia and support the thousands of others facing similar circumstances. Unfortunately, many individuals diagnosed with aphasia and frontotemporal dementia face stigma and misunderstanding, particularly when they begin to exhibit behavioral changes but have not yet received a diagnosis.”
