Lifetime’s Wendy Williams Documentary Will Air This Weekend After Effort To Block Broadcast Fails

Written by on February 24, 2024

The documentary “Where is Wendy Williams?” by Lifetime will proceed with its scheduled airing this weekend, following a New York court’s dismissal of an attempt to block its broadcast. The court ruled that preventing the documentary from airing would constitute an “impermissible prior restraint on speech,” violating the First Amendment. The documentary, set to be broadcast over two nights, features footage and interviews related to Wendy Williams, the former talk show host. This decision comes shortly after Williams’ care team disclosed her diagnosis with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia. Despite efforts by Williams’ guardian to halt the broadcast, details of which remain mostly sealed, the court’s ruling supports Lifetime’s right to air the documentary. This development follows the announcement of Williams’ health issues, including a prior diagnosis of Graves’ disease and more recent revelations about her cognitive challenges linked to alcohol use, as discussed in the documentary and recent reports.
