Wendy Williams Reportedly Isn’t Married
Wendy Williams is reportedly not married, despite her claims.
Speaking to Hollywood Unlocked founder Jason Lee, the former daytime talk show host claimed that she secretly married a New York Police Department officer named Henry. However her rep William Selby has denied this claim.
Speaking to Page Six, Selby said “That’s inaccurate.”
“She is excited about a new relationship and probably got carried away in conversation.”
He further noted that he couldn’t disclose the details of Williams’ new beau. “Wendy doesn’t wish to disclose details at the moment,” he said.
Lee recalled speaking on the phone with Williams, on Tuesday night, who informed him that she would be traveling to Los Angeles later in the week and that she also had some shocking news.
“She says, ‘I’m married.’ I’m like, ‘What?’ She’s like, ‘I got married,’” the podcast host recalled of their conversation.
“I’m like, ‘You got married when?’ And she’s like, ‘I got married last week.’”
While clearly in shock, Lee also revealed that Williams had informed him that her finances were still in the hands of Wells Fargo and that she had told her publicist to keep her entire family away from [her] except for [her] son for at least a year. Williams also claimed that her American Express credit card was no longer functional.
Williams’ money was seized by the bank when Lori Schiller, her former financial advisor, suggested a court-appointed guardian because Williams was “of unsound mind.”
The end of an era
Fans of the iconic daytime talk show hosted by Wendy Williams said their goodbye in June. The show which first premiered in 2008 and came to an end on June 17 after its host suffered health problems.
The show’s website has been completely scrubbed while fans can no longer find its Instagram and YouTube.
While Wendy Williams didn’t appear on the show’s final episode, but a video tribute was made to her.
In 2020, Williams took a break from hosting the show after dealing with COVID-19 as well as health problems related to her Graves’ disease. She first announced that she had been diagnosed with the condition in 2018. Graves’ disease causes the immune system to attack the thyroid.
She also suffers from lymphedema, which is caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system. Last week, the iconic talk show host claimed it had gotten worse and she now has “maybe 5 percent” feeling left in her feet.
