Wendy Williams: Guardianship/ Conservatorship and What You Need To Know Part 1

Published

on

“How did her health deteriorate so quickly, and why isn’t her only child allowed to be by her side?” These are questions being asked by Wendy Williams’ former attorney LaShawn Thomas. Williams, 59, was first placed under guardianship by her bank, Wells Fargo, but the conservatorship has since been moved to attorney Sabrina Morrissey.

Thomas alleges that she had been “threatened with physical and financial harm” if she speeks out about the care Wendy is receiving.


The Lifetime documentary, began shooting in August 2022, shortly after Wendy was forced to move back to New York for the guardianship. Although they allowed the documentary to be shot, Wendy’s guardians went to court two days before the scheduled showing dates, seeking to prohibit the network from airing Where is Wendy Williams? Why?

Wendy Williams is just one of an estimated 1.5 million to to 2 million active adult guardianship cases across the country. This is a massive industry, with guardians controlling an estimated $50 billion in assets and this is just the numbers they are telling us as the precise figures are not known as there is no government entity keeping track of citizens who lose the right to determine their own fate.

“Established in the late 1800s, the guardianship system was designed to assist the most vulnerable citizens: the elderly and the physically or intellectually disabled. While guardianship has been beneficial to many “wards of the court,” this little-understood process can be a judicial rollercoaster from which there is seldom an escape, and which often leads to financial devastation for the ward and their families. Each year, fifty billion dollars belonging to wards are placed under the control of court appointees, an obvious temptation to bad actors who are in a position to control these funds. As investigative journalist Diane Dimond discovers, the number of exploitive and abusive guardianship cases nationwide demands our urgent attention. This book also provides concrete steps that families can take to protect themselves, as guardianship can happen to any one of us at any time” states award-winning investigative journalist Diane Dimond, whose new book “We’re Here to Help: When Guardianship Goes Wrong” is currently making waves.

Guardianship/ Conservatorship harms some of the most vulnerable members of society with little if NO legal recourse. In South Florida, the GuardianshipProgram of Dade County sold at least a dozen homes of “incapacitated” people under their care to one Miami real estate company, Express Homes. These houses were often resold for hundreds of thousands dollars more than the purchase value.

This state-run system, is largely unregulated, ill-understood, and increasingly populated by financially motivated predators. Until recently it was a hush, hush problem until Britney Spears. Thanks to her case a person in the system lose all their civil rights in the process. Currently, there are an estimated 1.5 to 2 million Americans under court control, but precise figures are not known as no government entity keeps track of citizens who have lost the right to determine their own fate.

In these cases they go after people with money, people who live in rent controlled buildings or buildings the landlords want to tear down. Don’t believe me? I will give you cases in NYC that are going on right now.

Bonnie Comley Nothing To Wear

Published

on

Bonnie Comley stepped into the art world last night. She and ChaShaMa presented a piece called “Nothing To Wear”, at 340 East 64th Street, which is an interactive installation, a thought provoking look at fast fashion and body image. This provocative look at our relationship with our clothing choices as it pertains to our self image, fast fashion and textile waste, challenges the fashion industry to create an alternative to current business models and the global appetite for consumption. “Nothing to Wear”, asks viewers to question dress codes like the current policing of women in political office, facilitates self-reflection on biases regarding our own clothing and the community around us as uniform, self-expression, or just protection from the elements of weather.

Also involved were Sarah DeMarino – Co-Producer/Director, Leah Lane – Soundscape Monologue Writer and Jasper Isaac Johns the Exhibit Designer.

Other exhibitions and displays on view throughout March include Women’s Work, an exhibition that demonstrates how “women’s work” defies categorization; Women Who Preserved New York City which explores how Shirley Hayes, Margot Gayle, and Joan Maynard galvanized communities to save historic buildings and places; and Serving Style: Ted Tinling, Designer for the Tennis Stars, which turns a spotlight on the designer who made many of Billie Jean King’s iconic looks. On March 3, the ninth annual Diane and Adam E. Max Conference on Women’s History will center on exploring how we understand “care.”

This artistic dialogue showcases the ways in which WalkingStick’s work both connects to and diverges from the Hudson River School tradition and explores the agency of art in shaping humankind’s relationship to the land. The exhibition celebrates a shared reverence for nature while engaging crucial questions about land dispossession and its reclamation by Indigenous peoples and nations and exploring the relationship between Indigenous art and American art history.Women’s WorkOn view through July 7Presented by the Center for Women’s History, Women’s Workshowcases approximately 45 objects from New-York Historical’s own Museum and Library collections to demonstrate how “women’s work” defies categorization. The items range from a 19th-century mahogany cradle to a 20th-century doctor’s dissection kit to a pinback button with the message “Shirley Chisholm for President.” The exhibition seeks to demonstrate that women’s work has been essential to American society and is inherently political: Women’s work is everywhere.

Women Who Preserved New York CityOn view through June 9This installation explores how three women—Shirley Hayes, Margot Gayle, and Joan Maynard—galvanized communities to save historic buildings and places.

How Many More People Have to Be Killed or Hurt Before This Madness Stops?

Published

on

The latest crime involves a 17-year-old Nicaragua migrant boy who was stabbed in the back in front of shocked tourists on 42nd Street near 8th Avenue. The attack took place at 5:30 pm/  Police are now hunting for 16 suspects all part of a gang that has infiltrated Manhattan. The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital by EMS, and is listed in stable condition.

The police have five of the alleged attackers some more migrant teens. Michael Colome, 22, of Queens, has been arrested and charged with gang assault, assault and criminal possession of a weapon. Three are 16 and one is just 14-year-old boy. There names are not being released because they are underage. Two are believed to be migrants from Venezuela.

This was on the same block where a group of migrants brutally attacked cops last month. Venezuelan Darwin Andres Gomez-Izquiel, 19 was let go after the mob attack, but got arrested again on new charges. He allegedly participating in a coordinated robbery at a Macy’s store in Queens. Hopefully District Attorney Melinda Katz will make sure this teen criminal stays in jail since Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg seems to let this teenagers out with just a slap on the hand.

Bragg, doesn’t care that these teens do not have permanent address or community ties or are flight risks. Thank-God when it came to Alejandro Rivas-Figueroa, another migrant teen, who has since been charged as an adult, is being held at Rikers for allegedly shooting a tourist during an attempted robbery in Times Square. This kid also has priors.

And here is why this is happening….Yohenry Brito 24 who is accused of instigating the group assault on two NYPD officers in Times Square, was in court a second time for different charges. He’s being held on a $15,000 bail and a Brooklyn pastor paid that sum to set him free. More than a dozen immigration advocates also showed up to support this alleged criminal with a rap sheet. He is the main ringleader of this gang assault on our police officers. He has been arrested multiple times, has at least two open cases for shoplifting and pleaded guilty last year to disorderly conduct. Why do these people want this man free? What if it was one of their own family members who was shot? Will they change their bleeding heart’s if their own are attacked? When does this madness stop?
