Viewers were shocked when Season 12 of the “Wendy Williams Show” began without the talk show’s longtime fixture, DJ Boof.
Williams, 56, replaced her longtime DJ and close friend with DJ Suss One but failed to acknowledge the switch, forcing her co-hosts to turn to social media to ask what happened to Boof. They didn’t receive any answers until this weekend when Boof alluded to his departure after a clip of Williams from Friday’s episode looking unwell went viral.
After a fan on Instagram called for Williams to “seriously get help,” claiming her camp is simply “watching” her “spiral,” another fan suggested that was why Boof left the show.
“Yup exactly and it will all come out..” Boof replied. “Y’all have no idea what’s really going on and everyone there is afraid to speak up because they don’t wanna lose their jobs.. this is going to play out bad.. I feel sorry for the workers and victims.”
A rep for Williams didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
From the start of Friday’s episode, Williams seemed to struggle to speak. She took long pauses, slurred her words and veered off the conversation. At one point, she pronounced Adele’s name Ho-dele. After the episode was uploaded to YouTube, fans immediately expressed their concern for her sobriety.
“Look at her eyes,” wrote one fan. “Poor woman it’s so obvious that she’s high.”
“On a serious note I think Wendy has relapsed and is depressed deep down because of the divorce and then being quarantined ALONE by herself!” wrote another. “I Do think she needs to go to rehab again.”
“I’m in shock that they would allow this to air,” noted another. “I was so uncomfortable for her as she is clearly on something….. ugh.”
In 2019, Williams revealed she had been residing in a sober-living facility after relapsing.
