American TV host and celebrity commentator Wendy Williams has been slammed by her brother Tommy Williams Jnr for not being an active family member when it comes to their father Tommy Williams Snr.

Wendy is also said to have stopped communication with her son Kevin Jnr. According to The U.S Sun, a close family friend claimed to The U.S. Sun that Wendy last spoke to him before she left a Malibu rehabilitation facility over a month ago. 

“Wendy has not reached out to her son since she left the rehab. While she was in treatment, they were talking but the minute she got out the communication stopped,” the insider alleged.

The younger brother spoke to the publication in an exclusive interview and said that Wendy hasn’t been in communication the way they anticipated.

“Everybody’s able to kind of shrug it off, but it’s painful when it comes to her father, it’s painful…I think it’s necessary for her to see him and let him know what her status is, but she doesn’t communicate with him…He’s 92 in February, and he’s in great shape, but she’s really missing out. It is more painful because this is the month of our mother’s passing, and now she hasn’t progressed with her relationship with her father. I can’t understand it. It’s really Wendy’s loss,” he explained.

“We’ll see what the holidays bring. If a sporadic trip to Florida pops up fantastic, but I imagine that it won’t because if she was coming the normal behaviour is to communicate – to let someone know you’re coming down for the holidays,” Tommy added.

Tommy said that he tries not to bring his sister up in conversation with their father as it’s become a painful subject.

“I’m thinking about Wendy, and I know if I’m thinking about Wendy- he’s thinking about [her], too. I don’t want to bring in any depression. When I ask if he’s heard from her and he says ‘No,’ I can see the pain in his eyes,” the star’s younger brother claimed.

“This is the holidays – this is the point where I’m going to be on the attack and lambasting her behaviour because the biggest gift my father could have is knowing his daughter is doing okay – or at least what the official status is of Wendy,” – as per the publication.

“I’m frustrated because as days go in, days go out. The absence is the big monster in the room and all Wendy has to do is show up. She wouldn’t have to do anything, say anything, don’t come baring gifts- just be a family member,” he brother added.
