Since then in an exclusive with The Sun Wendy William’s brother Tommy Williams Jr shut the rumors down.

told the publication that his famous sister has not been “displaying that type of behavior to the family.

He said: “We haven’t had any alerts like that and I haven’t seen anything like that or have had conversations with her that would lead me to believe that.

“We routinely go up and check on Wendy even though we’re all down here in Florida.

“I try to make it up there and my dad speaks with Wendy frequently. So no, we don’t have any concerns concerning her mental state. It’s all physical.”

Wendy’s brother said that the star is mentally well enough to possibly travel to see her family in Florida for the upcoming holiday weekend.

“I am trying to find out if she’s coming down for Thanksgiving. I mean- she’s normal like that,” he added.

In our last update, we reported that Wendy provided her own update on her health earlier this month.

She wrote:

HOW YOU DOIN’? I MISS YOU ALL! As everyone knows, my health has been a hot topic. I’m making progress but it’s just one of those things that’s taking longer than we expected.

I’m a woman of a certain age, and I know enough to listen to my doctors and will return to my purple chair as soon as we all agree I’m ready.

I want to thank all of my staff and our guest hosts for stepping up and stepping in while I can’t be there.

I also want to thank Debmar-Mercury and our stations for being so understanding and supportive while I work my way back. Most of all, I want to thank my fans.

I have heard your prayers and comments and feel all the love! You are everything to me.

I love spending my mornings with you all and I’m doing everything I can to get back to work, but right now Wendy has to focus on Wendy. I love you for watching.

We wish Wendy all the best and hope she gets better soon. Rumors do not help though!
