She said,

"He's always encouraged me to keep it going and never asks me to pull back from anything that I say or that I wear or anything like that. He's always been very encouraging. So now it's just the two of us against the world."

On Monday's episode of "The Wendy Williams Show" the host defended Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner after being mocked by the audience as they presented an award at the 2019 Emmy Awards on Sunday. Wendy said those who laughed at the women were being jealous of them.
