Wendy Williams chat about her family problems in a teary rant in Los Angeles Sunday alongside a mystery man she called attention toward earlier in the weekend.
Williams, 54, on Monday was upset as she sat in the passenger seat of a vehicle after picking up takeout food from a Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles location.
The Wendy Williams Show star said she and her son Kevin Hunter Jr., 19, were doing ‘fine’ amid the tumultuous time between her and her estranged spouse Kevin Hunter, whose infidelity has made headlines in recent months.
‘Stuff happens in life; stuff happens and it’s OK,’ the media personality said in the emotional exchange. ‘I’ve still got a very full life that I really adore … please don’t make me cry.’
The New York native said she was hoping to get through the trying time, noting, ‘I didn’t plan on this, but it is what it is.’
Things took a turn for the bizarre as Williams made reference to her meal, saying, ‘I have got to go eat my food with potato salad and I’ve got to get on the plane in the morning, but I have a very full life.’
She had an introspective moment in weighing the public’s interest in her personal turmoil against the work she’s done in her own career commenting on celebrity scandal.
‘I would ask you to respect our privacy, but I don’t respect people’s privacy – that’s why I do the hot topics,’ Williams said. ‘But all three of us are doing fine.’
It’s been a turbulent year for Williams, who filed on April 11 to divorce Hunter, ending their 22-year marriage amid DailyMail.com’s reports her husband and mistress Sharina Hudson had welcomed a baby daughter.
Things got further complicated when Hunter Jr. was taken into custody in New Jersey after authorities said he punched his father.
On Sunday, Williams was emphatic that the father and son could eventually come to an accord: ‘Kevin’s got to graduate from college, he’s going into a sophomore year … he’s going to get married or whatever – everyone’s gotta grow up.’
Wendy, who has spent time in a sober house this year to deal with substance abuse issues, noted that the father and son are ‘not apart,’ chalking up recent events to, ‘Stuff happens in life.’
Williams was active on social media over the weekend, taking to Instagram with a post teasing a romance with the mystery man as she relaxed with him in Sherman Oaks, California, resting her head on his knee in an intimate shot.
She wrote: ‘Last night was the most beautiful sunset in Sherman Oaks with special people. Thank you, California! You’ve won me over! I’ll be back for the Hip Hop Festival in August!’
She added the revealing hashtags, #oldenoughtobeyourmother, #verysexyman and #mynewlife’.
Insiders told TMZ that Wendy crossed paths with the mystery man while she was keeping company with Blac Chyna.
