The latest: Wendy Williams, 58, has gone back into rehab to ‘take some time to focus on her health and wellness’ her publicist confirmed Wednesday. She was snapped in NYC last month 

Williams’ publicist Shawn Zanotti told told The U.S. Sun that she checked into a ‘wellness facility’ in an effort to ‘manage her overall health issues.’  

Sources told Page Six that the production company for her one-time series, Debmar-Mercury, ‘refused’ to assist in the effort to get Williams help amid her issues.

‘They turned their backs on her,’ the source said. ‘They had too much control over someone so vulnerable.’

Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter told the outlet this past July that ‘Debmar would not support Wendy’s recovery efforts with the family,’ as ‘they would not sign off on anything that would’ve helped her recovery efforts.’

Details: A source told Page Six that her substance issues have 'gotten worse,' as 'she went from [drinking] wine to straight up vodka.' She was pictured in NYC in 2019
