Inside Wendy Williams’ Luxury $4.5 Million Condominium In NYC’s Financial District

Finding Wendy Williams might not be so easy these days, but having a look at her exclusive luxury condominium in Manhattan is not that difficult. 

In the four-part Lifetime series that began airing on Feb. 24, Williams’ health and financial challenges are documented in her home in the financial district of New York City. Williams purchased the apartment for $4.5 million in 2021 just weeks before taking an extended hiatus from her daytime talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show,” which ran for 14 years.

At the height of the show, it was variously reported that Williams earned a $10 million salary, but various outlets have a range of net worth for the former TV personality today. Some outlets like Parade say Williams’ net worth stands at $20 million, others such as Celebrity Net Worth have it as low $500,000. While there seems to be wide speculation as to her net worth, what is know as the she is currently under guardianship, with Wells Fargo controlling her bank account.

Williams’ career in radio and television spans more than 30 years. She got her start in radio as a DJ in the Virgin Islands. She juggled hosting an afternoon radio show in Washington, D.C., with being a filler at a station in New York. In 1994, she landed a job at New York City’s Hot 97 where she remained for four years but was ultimately fired for her on-air antics. A move to a Philadelphia station proved to be a good career move, as Williams’ show achieved syndication as she shared personal challenges and successes along with a good mix of celebrity gossip. By 2001, Williams returned to New York with a syndicated afternoon show on WBLS. Interviews with celebrities such as Whitney Houston made Williams a fixture in popular culture. Eight years later, she’d accept the challenge of hosting the daytime television talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show,” which ultimately went on to attract 2.4 million daily viewers.

Inside Williams’ Bachelorette Pad 

Williams’ condo serves as the backdrop for most of the documentary — a residence she has called home since her 2019 separation from her now former husband Kevin Hunter. According to Page Six, Williams began renting the apartment for $15,000 per month right after listing her marital home in New Jersey for sale. Ultimately, the house sold for $1.4 million in 2020. By the following year, Williams was battling alcoholism and Graves’ disease but was determined to call the apartment her own. 

The 2,304-square-foot apartment is located in a luxury building in Manhattan’s financial district. The two-floor unit features three bedrooms and bathrooms. On the main level is one bedroom along with a living room, dining room and kitchen. Williams’ master bedroom is on the second floor and overlooks the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty. Williams’ building has many amenities available to residents including a gym, indoor pool, playroom for children and entertainment center.
