Talk show host Wendy Williams placed under court guardianship

(WGHP) — In her medical absence from “The Wendy Williams Show,” six-time Emmy-nominated talk show host Wendy Williams has struggled to regain control of her bank accounts.

That Daily talk show announced in October 2021 that Williams had suffered “serious complications” from Graves’ disease and thyroid disease. The show continued without the titular host, with guest presenters instead.

said attorney La’Shawn Thomas The Hollywood Reporter that Williams asked Wells Fargo for her bank statements so she could switch banks on suspicion of her former Wells Fargo financial adviser, Lori Schiller.

Wells Fargo refused and temporarily suspended Williams’ account, claiming she was “incapacitated” and a “victim of undue influence and financial exploitation” before filing for guardianship diversity. Williams says she fired Schiller, but Wells Fargo continued to refuse to give her full access to their accounts.

Williams and Thomas have denied any claims that she is not well enough to watch her own money. During her absence from the show, Williams “has hired holistic health professionals to help her achieve optimal health while she is being treated for Graves’ disease and thyroid issues,” Thomas said in a statement from Variety.

Wells Fargo issued a statement at the time in an apparent attempt to allay Williams’ concerns that she would not be able to pay her mortgage and employee wages.

“Wells Fargo’s priority is Ms. Williams’ financial well-being and maintaining her privacy,” the bank said. “As we expressed to the court, Wells Fargo stands ready to work with Ms. Williams’ attorney to release funds directly to her creditors for bills that have been historically and regularly paid from her accounts.”

A temporary guardian was appointed in March, and in May a New York judge appointed a new guardian in a move that effectively removed Wells Fargo from operational control of Williams funds. meeting reports. The identity of the new guardian has not been publicly disclosed.

Despite the update, Williams and her attorney continue to push back.

“Please note that Wendy does not agree with the court’s appointment of a financial guardian. Wendy has made it very clear that she doesn’t want a financial guardian telling her what she can and can’t do with her money,” Thomas said page six.
