Wendy Williams Diagnosed With Same Form Of Dementia As Bruce Willis
  • Wendy Williams has been diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia (FTD).
  • Aphasia is a condition that affects language and communication abilities, while FTD is a disorder that impacts behavior and cognitive functions. Bruce Willis revealed last year that he was also diagnosed with the same kind of dementia.
  • “The Wendy Williams Show” ran from 2008-2021, with the host eventually stepping down due to health issues that included Graves’ Disease.
  • “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 press release states.
  • The decision to share this news was difficult and made after careful consideration, not only to advocate for understanding and compassion for Wendy but to raise awareness about aphasia and frontotemporal dementia.”
