Wendy Williams is well on the road to recovery.

Wendy’s brother, Tommy Williams Jr., told US Weekly on Wednesday that the media personality 59, is showing “substantial amount of improvement” while undergoing treatment in an undisclosed treatment facility.

“When I speak to Wendy, she sounds fine. Wendy has improved. I know my sister from where she was to where she is now, and she has a substantial amount of improvement, Tommy told the outlet, adding that “it’s dialogue and conversation, topics, content, speech pattern, everything.”

Tommy also reassured fans that the talkshow host’s condition depicted by the new documentary Where Is Wendy Williams? was that of the past.

“The past was obvious. We saw it. She was in a worse state, and the [documentary] depicted it. Now [she is in] a different state,” he clarified.

Wendy was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia and aphasia, which her team announced last week.
