Producers of “Where Is Wendy Williams?” Claim They Regret Filming Documentary After Learning of Dementia Diagnosis

The producers of “Where Is Wendy Williams?” expressed regret over filming the documentary upon learning about her diagnosis with dementia.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, producers Mark Ford and Erica Hanson discussed the challenging year-long process of filming the documentary, which premiered on Saturday. Originally intended to showcase Wendy Williams’ career resurgence, the documentary took an unexpected turn, revealing significant aspects of her personal struggles with alcohol and cognitive issues.

Ford shared with THR, “At a certain point, we became more concerned about the consequences of halting the filming than continuing.” He further explained that the documentary was meant to document Williams’ return to her career through a podcast, with hopes of capturing a redeeming story. However, as filming progressed, it became clear that the focus was shifting towards a more profound and unsettling narrative of Williams’ life.

Hanson elaborated on the decision-making process, highlighting the sensitivity and complexity of the situation. “You just follow your instinct,” she said, noting the emotional challenges and the team’s deep sense of moral responsibility, influenced by personal experiences with dementia and addiction.

Two days prior to the documentary’s release, Williams’ team formally announced her diagnosis of primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia. The announcement addressed speculations about Williams’ erratic behavior and difficulties in processing information.

Ford emphasized the documentary’s transparency, aiming to convey the filmmakers’ journey alongside Williams’ story. He remarked on the dire situations faced by Williams, such as being left alone without assistance, underscoring the ethical considerations the team faced. “Had we known about Wendy’s dementia from the start, we would not have proceeded with filming,” Ford concluded.
