How you doin'? If you were a faithful watcher of one the most iconic daytime talk shows, The Wendy Williams Show, you'd already be familiar with this catchy catchphrase. It's been over a year since the talk show came to an end, and we've been trying our best to keep up with the lady who coined the phrase herself. But where is Wendy Williams?

Since the talk show's end, Wendy Williams has pretty much been missing in action. We've seen glimpses of her through the various paparazzi shots, but that's about it. Now, it looks like we'll finally get some answers in an upcoming documentary titled Where Is Wendy Williams?.

This documentary has been in the works for a while, with filming reportedly starting sometime in August 2022 and running through to April 2023. Since it's set to premiere soon, everyone's wondering where and when exactly they can watch it. Unfortunately, it won't be available to stream on Netflix. Instead, it will be aired on Lifetime. There are four episodes in total, and they will be aired in two parts. The first part consists of episodes 1 and 2, while the second part is made up of episodes 3 and 4.

Part 1 will air on Lifetime on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024, followed by part 2 on Sunday, Feb. 25, 2024. Both parts will air at 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET on their respective nights. This means people in the Central time zone can look forward to watching both parts of the documentary at 7:00 p.m. CT. Also, if you miss the episodes when they air, they will be available to stream on the Lifetime official website the next day.

In Where Is Wendy Williams?, viewers get a raw, unfiltered look at the former television host and radio star's life following the end of her daytime talk show in 2022. It will shed more light on things that have happened recently in Williams' life, like her being placed under financial guardianship and her health struggles. On Feb. 22, 2024, Williams' team shared with the world that Williams was diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia. This will probably be shared in the documentary too.

Here's the documentary's official synopsis via the Lifetime website:

"Over the course of nearly two years, cameras chronicled the former television host and radio star Wendy Williams’ on the next phase of her life, following the end of her iconic talk show. The documentary provides a raw, honest and unfiltered reality of Wendy’s life after she was placed under financial guardianship, shedding light on the vulnerabilities that has turned Wendy into the Hot Topic herself. Suffering mental and physical issues, Wendy’s delicate state of mind, erratic behavior and declining health were all captured by the cameras.
