Wendy Williams became emotional as she opened up about her divorce in the trailer for her upcoming documentary. She got candid about the pain of ending her marriage over infidelity.
Talk show host Wendy Williams shed tears as she shared about her feelings in the aftermath of her divorce. She revealed her pain in the trailer for her upcoming documentary. She said:
"This is the culmination of everything."
BECOMING THE HOT TOPIC
"I have a career, for over three decades, of talking about people and now, I'm being talked about."
The 56-year-old famous media personality's colorful life is the focus of a new Lifetime documentary titled "Wendy Williams: What A Mess!" which will premiere on January 30.
Among the experiences that left a mark in Williams' life is divorcing her ex-husband, who was once her manager. Hunter allegedly got his mistress pregnant.
Speaking to Jimmy Fallon, she said she does not regret the 25 years she shared with her ex-husband.
MOVING ON FROM THE PAST
Back in January 2020, Williams announced that her divorce had been finalized. Seeming to have bounced back, she shared that the new chapter in her life "has been so lovely."
Williams filed for divorce in 2019 after learning that Hunter, whom she had been married to since 1997, fathered a child with another woman. She said then that she has moved on.
Speaking to Jimmy Fallon, she said she does not regret the 25 years she shared with her ex-husband. She said that she was back in the dating game but she wanted to focus on her career.
However, she denied a report that she was dating jeweler William Selby after they were spotted enjoying a night out together, claiming they were mere friends.
The past few years had been challenging for Williams. In December 2018, she took a hiatus from her talk show because of health issues. She suffered a fractured shoulder and also dealt with complications from her Graves' Disease.
In December 2020, she mourned the death of her mother, Shirley. To honor her mother during an episode on her show, she left a seat empty in the audience. Her mother occasionally joined the audience when she was alive.
