Wendy Williams has won a partial victory by trying to gain access to her bank accounts, but the former talk queen is still unable to sign her own check – and that’s not good with her.
“Please suggest that Wendy does not agree with the appointment of a financial guardian by the court,” Williams’ lawyer Lashan Thomas said today. Cash until at least July.
