For over a decade, Wendy Williams greeted her dedicated audience with the iconic phrase “how you doin’?” on her daytime talk show. Now, viewers will have the opportunity to delve into the personal journey of this daytime legend through a new Lifetime documentary.

This documentary follows the recent announcement of Williams’ battle with frontotemporal dementia and aphasia, marking a significant chapter in her life. Concurrently, on the same day, Sabrina Morrissey, appointed as Williams’ temporary guardian, initiated legal action against Lifetime in a New York state court, as confirmed by USA TODAY.

The lawsuit, filed under seal, identifies Morrissey as “acting in her capacity as Temporary Guardian of W.W.H.,” with the initials presumably referring to Wendy Williams Hunter, the legal name of the 59-year-old host stemming from her marriage to her ex-husband Kevin Hunter.

The release of Lifetime’s documentary, “Where Is Wendy Williams?”, promises to unveil bombshell revelations about the iconic figure’s life.

On Friday, a New York appellate judge ruled that Lifetime may go forward with releasing its documentary about Williams despite the lawsuit filed against A&E Television Networks in an attempt to halt its premiere. The Friday order says such a ruling would be an “impermissible prior restraint on speech that violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

A New York appellate judge issued a ruling on Friday permitting Lifetime to proceed with the release of its documentary on Williams, despite a lawsuit brought against A&E Television Networks to stop its debut. The order issued on Friday stated that preventing the release would constitute a “prohibited prior restraint on speech, contravening the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.”

The court ruling has approved Lifetime’s schedule for the two-night broadcast of “Where is Wendy Williams?,” featuring footage of the former talk show host along with interviews. A&E, in a statement given to USA TODAY on Friday, confirmed that Lifetime has attended court proceedings and assured that the documentary will proceed with its scheduled airing this weekend.

In 2021, the network showcased a biopic titled “Wendy Williams: The Movie” and a documentary called “Wendy Williams: What a Mess,” both focusing on the life of the talk show host.
