A New York judge has ruled in favour of Lifetime’s documentary release on Wendy Williams despite a lawsuit aimed at halting its debut by A&E Television Networks.

Filed by Sabrina Morrissey, Williams’ temporary guardian, the lawsuit targets Entertainment One Reality Productions, the documentary’s producer.

An appellate judge’s order on Friday rejected the petition to block the release, citing it as a violation of the First Amendment.

Consequently, Lifetime’s two-night broadcast, “Where is Wendy Williams?, will proceed this weekend as planned.

The documentary traces Williams’ abrupt exit from public life. Liftetime previously aired a biopic about the talk show host’s life, “Wendy Williams: The Movie,” and a documentary, “Wendy Williams: What a Mess,” both in 2021.

Meanwhile, in a statement on Friday, the former TV host expressed her immense gratitude for the love and kind words she has received after sharing her diagnosis of Aphasia and Frontotemporal Dementia FTD.
