Kevin Hunter Jr. Reveals Wendy Williams’ Dementia Diagnosis Was Caused By Alcohol

Kevin Hunter Jr. provided additional information on his mother, Wendy Williams, diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia.

In the two-part Lifetime documentary “Where Is Wendy Williams?”, Kevin elaborated on how alcohol adversely impacted the mental state and cognitive function of the former daytime talk show host.

“[Doctors] basically said that because she was drinking so much. It was starting to affect her headspace and her brain,” Kevin explained. “So, I think they said it was alcohol-induced dementia.”

According to Healthline, alcohol-related dementia is characterized as a form of cognitive decline stemming from prolonged and excessive alcohol consumption. Excessive alcohol consumption can cause brain damage, impacting everyday tasks like cooking and managing money. The symptoms of alcohol-related dementia and age-related dementia are similar, including problems with memory, concentration, and emotions.

Prior to the documentary, a spokesperson for Williams issued an extensive statement addressing the prolonged public apprehension regarding Wendy’s health.

“Over the past few years, questions have been raised at times about Wendy’s ability to process information and many have speculated about Wendy’s condition, particularly when she began to lose words, act erratically at times, and have difficulty understanding financial transactions,” the statement read.

Two years after leaving her daytime talk show in 2021, Wendy’s diagnoses of Graves’ disease and lymphedema came to light. Fans had ongoing concerns about her health, especially after she collapsed during a live taping of one of her shows in 2017.
