Wendy Williams wears big white furry boots after revealing painfully swollen ankles due to lymphedema battle on show

WENDY Williams hid her swollen ankles in white fluffy boots on a New York City stroll, after sharing the details of her lymphedema.

The talk show host admitted earlier this week that she can't even "walk two city blocks" due to the disease.


Wendy, 56, was spotted walking the New York streets recently while concealing her swollen feet in huge fluffy white boots.

The mom of one flashed a bright blue Adidas x Ivy Park coat, from Beyonce's Ice collection.

Wendy looked glamorous on the chilly New York day, as she carried a black handbag and wore a mask on her stroll.

The daytime host gave fans a closer look at her swollen ankles on her show earlier this week.



The TV personality explained that she is unable to walk hardly at all due to a condition called Lymphedema.

"Do you see my feet? Do you see how they barely fit in my shoes even? I have Lymphedema. I've had it now for a few years…" she explained while the camera zoomed in on her ankles.

"Mine [my feet] are discolored. They're hardened. I can't wear boots. I can't believe in our comment section people say, why does she walk like that.

"Well if you see me in an airport, you'll be like is that Wendy in a wheelchair? Yup. I can't even walk two city blocks. You know you got the numbness and whatnot. It's not curable…"


Wendy also explained the impact of her condition on her dating life, after divorcing her ex-husband Kevin Hunter in 2019.

Last week the broadcaster played a dating game show in order to find three potential finalists.

The Wendy Williams show also put out a casting call to help their star find a new boyfriend in early March, and apparently "hundreds of bachelors applied."

As a result of the combined efforts, Wendy found a man named Mike who works in real estate and home improvement to try.


"You know when I do go out with Mike, and that's going to be happening. Just follow me on the gram… Here's my thing about the lymphedema.

"I just want to wait until he really likes me before I show him [Mike] the rest of the story cause I don't wear socks in the house, and I don't sleep with socks.

"But he needs to understand if he rubs up against my feet, they're not tender. They don't hurt. But they're rough. And there's nothing you can do about it. It's just a manageable disease. It's not curable," she confessed.

This past Fall Wendy slammed Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes  after the reality star mocked her "large feet."


The Atlanta native spoke out about the radio host, stating: "Wendy, for you- spend more of your time trying to figure out how you can drain your enormously large legs and feet, okay- opposed to worrying about my family and what we are doing.

"You need to find the nearest water pill, okay?"

The shock jockette clapped back: "Yes, I do have lymphedema- will never go away. How dare you, how dare you, how dare you, make fun of me- the way I walk and the whole bit.  

"How dare you, how dare you, how dare you. What ill you get if you live long enough?… Everybody gets something. If I don't laugh, I'll cry. Damn you feet, Damn you feet, Damn you feet," she ranted.
