Wendy Williams hasn’t been single for since the early 90’s but now that she’s getting a divorce from her long-time husband, the celebrity gossip queen is ready to mingle.
On Tuesday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the talk show host opened up about life after filing for divorce.
She first addressed rumors that she had a new boyfriend after she saw seen sitting with her bodyguard this past weekend at New York City's L’Hommage Ball.
"I am working on my divorce, pleasantly, right now," she said. "It's hard to say, 'Give privacy,' because I don't give privacy when I'm doing the rest of the stories, so you do what you want. You always do."
Williams then confidently declared, "I am a single woman running around New York."
Wendy also added: “By the way, I don’t have a boyfriend. That was Web. The word on the street is that on Saturday night, I was at the FIERCE ball sitting next to a man at the ball who looks like my type. And, they showed the picture and I was reading on the blogs like, ‘Who was I with?’ Web is part of the security detail here at the show.”

The 54-year-old also gave details about her new single life as she revealed: “I go out a lot, because I’m a good time girl, I like to have fun. I am right now, a young and pretty New York city girl. I have the ultimate bachelorette pad, high atop everything. I have a really really good view, and I’m really reclaiming my life. I don’t have a boyfriend, but, I have to admit, I’m rediscovering my love for men. Transparent — I do date, and I date pretty often.”

Karma continues to collect when it comes to celebrity gossip legend Wendy Williams.
So far in 2019, she’s had an extended and repeated absence from her daytime TV show, relapsed on drugs, currently lives in a sober house and let’s not forget about reports of her being physically abuse by her longtime husband Kevin Hunter plus public (and loud) rumors of him carrying on a 10-year affair.
Back in April, the 54-year-old filed for divorce from her husband Kevin Hunter after he reportedly welcomed a baby with his mistress, Sharina Hudson, in late March.
Since their separation, Williams has fired Kevin as both her manager and executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show (it’s rumored that he’ll be receiving a $10 million payout).
In Williams’ divorce filing, she sought to establish an “appropriate amount of child support” as well as “other further relief as the Court deems fair and equitable.”
Hunter has now replied to her divorce petition and it’s obvious that a court battle is looming.
Reportedly, Kevin is requesting spousal support as well as child support for their 18-year-old son, Kevin Hunter Jr (who turns 19 in August).
According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Hunter wants Wendy to also pay their son’s college tuition, and in addition, “equitable distribution of all personal assets.”
It’s pretty obvious that Wendy and Kevin’s divorce is going to take a very long time to get settled.
What do you think of Kevin Hunter seeking spousal and child support from Wendy Williams?
