AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams apparently is ready to get back to work. The former host of "The Wendy Williams Show" was overheard talking about making a "big comeback on TV" after skipping the entire last season of her show due to her health issues.
An onlooker told Page Six on Thursday, April 14 that the 57-year-old TV hostess talked about the matter while having dinner with Baruch Shemtov, her niece Alex Finnie and Alex's boyfriend Eric Houston at Fresco by Scotto, which is owned by "Good Day New York" anchor Rosanna Scotto, in New York City on Wednesday night, April 13. The source said that the daytime diva is "ready to get back to work," before adding, "When you hear her talk… anyone who's known her for years, knows they're getting a Wendy who's ready to work. She's really in good form."
"Wendy was talking to Baruch about her situation with Wells Fargo and she confidently said 'I'm getting my money back very soon,' " the spy continued. During the dining, Rosanna reportedly "greeted Wendy warmly" and "people were excited to see her out."
The source added, "The main thing right now is the finances. That is her focus. Things are in the works." The informant then pointed out, "She is coming back to TV and she is getting her money back."
"She's planting her roots back in New York and you'll see a lot more of her. She's very comfortable, and is enjoying life again," the source said. "She took some time off and now she's 'out with the old and in with the new.' It's like a rebirth."
Another source, who witnessed her at the restaurant, described her as "vibrant." The insider shared, "She looks great. No one was helping her. It was very different from the person who we've seen in the wheelchair. She was walking by herself. No one helped her get in her car. She climbed right in and it was a Suburban."
Wendy was also overheard gushing about her new TikTok audience at the eatery. A source told the outlet that fans "who were probably 17 or 18" years old were screaming, "We love you Wendy!" outside of the restaurant. "She has this incredible fanbase, even Gen Z. She can be the next [Zendaya Coleman] if she plays this right," the source alleged.
On April 13, her lawyer LaShawn Thomas confirmed to E! News that Wendy is in a "good spirit." The attorney went on to note that the TV personality is still fighting for control of her money. "She's concerned that this issue has been dragging out for a significant amount of time," the lawyer said. "We certainly did not think that considering the length of the relationship that she's had with Wells Fargo, that they would draw this out to the extent that they have."
A few days earlier, Wendy herself appeared to declare that she's "ready" for court. Making use of her Instagram account, the TV hostess shared a photo of her looking happy and healthy. In the snapshot, she could be seen wearing a leopard-print coat while holding her Louis Vuitton purse. She simply captioned her post, "Ready," adding a smiling face emoji.
