DENYING RECENT DATING RUMORS

The 55-year-old host recently just split from her husband of 22 years, Kevin Hunter, due to infidelity issues, and as pictures of her hanging out with different men are often seen on social media, people can't help but wonder about her love life. 

Explaining the recent photo she shared on Instagram cuddling next to William Selby, she says it just so happened that the room they were staying in was cold and small. 

"A lot of you all said we looked like a couple. No, we're not a couple. I got a beige negligee and threw on that [coat]. It was cold out. And then we get in the studio and I put it on my 'gram. Yeah, we're huddled like this in the studio because it's freezing in there."

ON DATING OLDER MEN

Recently, Williams also opened up about the idea of dating an older man, as she discussed Al Pacino's split from her girlfriend Maeitel who is 39 years his junior. The TV host revealed that at one point, she also dated a 65-year-old man until she realized she wasn't ready for that. 

While they had a good time at the date, and while he was wealthy and part of an Ivy League, she wasn't keen on the fact that she would "need to rock him to sleep gently" whenever they were together.

HER HOPES OF GETTING MARRIED

She then gave her audience a piece of advice, saying:

"The purpose of meeting somebody is to grow old together. If you already meet someone that is old, what's the growth in that?"

Despite denying her recent hangouts as dates and despite making it clear that she's not into older men, Williams has always stated that she still wants to get married, and that's something fans can look out for in the near future.
