It’s been a while since we’ve heard any news about Kevin McCall‘s legal troubles. Years ago, the singer-songwriter seemed to be at the top his game as he worked with some major players in the music industry, but recently his arrests have overshadowed his accomplishments. McCall has been estranged from his daughter Marley Rae whom he shares with Real Housewives Atlanta star Eva Marcille, and according to the model, her ex has never been in their daughter’s life.

Eva has openly spoken out about her relationship with McCall and the alleged physical abuse she endured while they were together. She had Marley’s last name changed to that her husband Michael Sterling, a move that unsurprisingly displeased Kevin. On Thursday (February 27), Eva visited The Wendy Williams Show and talked about her ex.
“Marley doesn’t even know,” Eva admitted. “Marley has no idea… She just turned six and she’ll know at some point, but that’s my baby and that’s Mike’s baby and that’s our first kid. He raised her.” Wendy added that Eva’s husband is currently going through the legal process to formally adopt Marley as his own.
After all the backlash she received for her anti-gay comments last week, you would think that Wendy Williams would be a little more careful on her daytime talk show but, alas, she’s back in the headlines for more the same. This week started f with the horrific news the death Amie Harwick, Drew Carey’s ex-fiancée. Neighbors heard screaming from her residence and when they arrived, they found Harwick dead after being pushed f the third-floor balcony. Harwick’s ex-boyfriend, Gareth Pursehouse, is being investigated in relation to the crime, getting arrested shortly after signs a struggle were indicated and, when reporting the news to her audience, Wendy Williams thought it would be appropriate to crack a joke about the situation.

During the Hot Topics segment her popular daytime television show, Williams approached the topic with caution at first, informing her fans that Carey’s ex-fiancée was tragically murdered in the Hollywood Hills. When specifying that the comedian was not involved in her death, she tried to make light the situation by making a ThePrice Is Right joke. “Come on down!” enthusiastically blurted out Wendy before making a motion with her head as if to mimic Harwick’s death. Viewers the show have critiqued the host as being inappropriate and heartless at that moment.
Just last week, she was forced to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community after making comments about gay men and how they should stop wearing dresses and other women’s clothing. We’re sure an apology is coming for this, as well. Watch below at the 10:06 mark.
Usually when a video goes viral some painful-looking accident – or “epic fail” as they used to say – the viewers detach from their sympathetic sides and manage to derive some entertainment from the video. In the case the stripper who fell down a 15-foot pole mid-routine and face-planted on stage, people were more concerned with her well-being than getting a laugh (although it was comical that she continued twerking post-plunge). The victim this incident, Genea Sky, has been providing updates for the public on her recovery and, while she suffered some serious injuries, her spirits are remaining high.
Last week, Sky appeared on The Wendy Williams Show to discuss her experience and she revealed that she would not be returning to the stripping pression. The accident served as a turning point for her, motivating her to dedicate all her energy to becoming an aesthetician. However, while speaking to TMZ, she mentioned that there’s another dream job that she would be pursuing in a perfect world.
Sky fantasizes about being a food critic, since she “eats] like a football player” and even calls herself a “chicken wing connoisseur.” Unfortunately, her jaw is wired shut at the moment after undergoing surgery to repair its break, so she is relegated to consuming food out a straw for another three weeks. However, once she overcomes this stage, she will return to her gourmet ways. Sky estimates her overall recovery time to span 2-3 month “at the very minimum”, so you can donate to her GoFundMe page to help cover medical and living expenses in the meantime.
A few weeks ago Wendy Williams claimed NeNe Leakes was leaving Real Housewives Atlanta. NeNe followed up on her private texts being revealed to the world, making it clear that she wasn’t announcing her departure anytime soon. “It’s been an especially difficult couple weeks for Nene, and she was venting to her friend in private correspondence. Nothing has been confirmed or ficially decided for next season,” she said. If there’s one person who may have wanted the report to be true it’s Kenya Moore who’s an RHOA regular.

Kenya recently opened up in detail to Entertainment Tonight about her co-star and how she really feels. “I don’t think we ever did have a friendship, I think I was just convenient, and a convenient ally… so yeah, I don’t really see the value in being or attempting to be fake friends with her,” she said.
Kenya discussed the reports NeNe possibly leaving the show and said that would never happen since NeNe will never say no to a paycheck. “She tried to get me fired before I was even hired on the show,” she alleged. “I just think that she’s always been very intimidated by my presence on the show. And, when I was not on the show, I was still being talked about … I was still relevant, so that bothered her.”
As for NeNe’s refound relationship with Wendy, Kenya thinks it’s fake. “I just think she’s using Wendy, honestly,” she said. “Because before they were friends], Wendy would go in if she sees the type behavior that anyone on our show was exhibiting before, and Wendy has been going, like, so st on her. So, I just think that NeNe is really just using Wendy.”
Common doesn’t believe the move was a protest and understands how HOV taking the seat was from a producer perspective as he stated when he defended himself. ” I mean my thoughts are that Jay Z is a man action,” he said. Common saluted Jay Z for being “for the people” and making changes in communities when it comes to mental health and financially. “I really respect those who do the work and don’t always announce it and Jay Z is one those people. I think, you know, he told you what his intention was if you ain’t happy with that – meaning he was checking out was going on – if you ain’t happy so be it.”
Nicki’s former manager and longtime boyfriend, Safaree Samuels, just welcomed his first child with wife, Erica Mena, and Wendy joked that this news must have childless Nicki feeling competitive. “Nicki Minaj is probably some place trying to one up them by getting pregnant as I speak,” the 55-year-old host said. The audience reacted to this comment with ooh-ing, likely knowing the messy history between Wendy and Nicki and anticipating the can worms that the former just opened up.
Wendy then took things a step further with one final jab. “Nicki is married to a man named Kenneth Petty, which makes Nicki, Mrs. Petty,” she said as if it were merely a matter–fact statement. She feigned innocence by adding, “What? That’s all.”
After nine months organizing assets and coming to an agreement on finances, Wendy Williams has finalized her divorce with Kevin Hunter after he cheated on her for a second time and impregnated his mistress after 25 years together. The talk show host recently paid a visit to another television set when she stooped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and got candid about the divorce and her dating life as late. Jimmy got straight to the point, asking Wendy plain and simple if she’s divorced. “Yes, I am fully divorced. A door has closed in old life. The new chapter has been so lovely,” she said, thanking Jimmy for being real and not tiptoeing around the question.

“Yeah, I’m not mad. You know, it was 25 years. I don’t regret. But you know what, sometimes, people move on with their lives,” she added. As for her dating life, the 55-year-old admitted that her career is always number one. “I date, but you know, I love my career. You know how tough this is with this microphone here,” she explained. “You know what I’m saying. There’s a certain amount dedication, and I didn’t just land in my career… I plotted on being with the mic since sixth grade.”
“Let me tell you something right now, okay?” started Wendy Williams as she explained “fartgate” on a recent episode her show according to DailyMail. “I don’t lean over like this to release a fart, I lean over like this because it’s comfortable. If I sit straight up] all the time, it’s heavy on my spine. I like to release my hips and lean. I’ve been doing this for 11 years on this show. I have never farted once on this show. As a matter fact, I barely fart, you know why? Gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching because all I do is talk.”
A producer on the program appeared on stage to back up his boss, explaining that they were conducting a science experiment backstage but, because they didn’t have the proper equipment to fill up a fish tank, a noise was being exhibited from behind the stage and it sounded as though Wendy was letting one rip. Uh-huh. Sure.
Do you think this is a convenient excuse or is Wendy actually telling the truth?
After the news was revealed, NeNe’s team followed up denying that such a move was happening. “It’s been an especially difficult couple weeks for Nene, and she was venting to her friend in private correspondence. Nothing has been confirmed or ficially decided for next season,” NeNe’s representative said the situation.
Now that the rumour has been squashed, NeNe has come through with some words her own, clearly not pleased with Wendy’s gossip moves. “Private conversations should be left in private! What are girlfriends for if you can’t vent to them on those type days,” she shared on Twitter.
So there you have it. NeNe’s not leaving her long-standing position on RHOA and Wendy’s seemingly more interested in the content her Hot Topics segment than maintaining a truthful friendship.
Cindy Parker has been fighting for months to get Future to agree to take a paternity test for her son Legend. A judge has reportedly allowed Parker to move forward in serving Future with a paternity lawsuit his Texas-based lawyer. Once the paperwork gets through to him, he will need to respond in three weeks or a default judgment may be handed down.
Hopefully, this fiasco can be done for good after Legend’s paternity has been settled. Do you think we need to get Maury involved?
Anyone who is a guest on Wendy Williams‘ self-titled talk show should expect to be grilled on any given topic that will bring in hits and clicks. Since Victor Cruz was the latest guest on the show, he, course, got asked multiple questions on his long-standing relationship with Karrueche and what their future may look like. On the topic marriage and if it’s something he’d want with Karrueche, his answer was “absolutely, absolutely.”

When it comes to kids, Victor was sure to debunk past reports that his partner is expecting but he did detail how it’s something he would like in the future. “I do want more kids],” Victor said. “I want my little boy, I need my football player.” The former NFL player already has an eight-year-old daughter with his ex.
As for how he and Karrueche met, it was through mutual friends. “And, we had always kind been friends,” he explained. “I would always see her around and we would always have a conversation. As I got reintroduced to her through a mutual friend, I was like, ‘Man, I gotta take a shot at this. If I want her to be my girl, if I want to take her seriously, I gotta take a shot.’”
Wendy Williams and Howard Stern previously made up after the radio host called Wendy a “jealous bi*ch” on air. Howard later explained that his reaction was him at his “worst” and it was assumed that the duo would no longer have drama between them, until now. Howard has once again dissed Wendy on air when he expressed that he was frustrated that she had made the National Radio Hall Fame before him.

“I mean, the guy’s trying to get something going,” Howard said when discussing how award shows should have radio as a category. “I’m fine with that, but…it’s just something that, for years — no fense to Wendy Williams — but they put Wendy Williams in before me.’’ Wendy, course, got word and addressed his comments head-on during a recent taping her self-titled talk show. “Now you look here Howard, I’m tired fighting with you, man. Why do you always have to fight with me? Because you think I’m the low-lying fruit? Why? Because you’re scared to work with Tom Joyner? Why are you and I always fighting? I wasn’t fighting with you, I’m minding my own business,” she said.
Wendy was inducted into the hall fame in 2011, with her whole family present and Howard was inducted in 2012. “He said no fense, Wendy Williams, they put her in before me. Howard, I was fended,” Wendy added. “I admire you Howard Stern. They were wrong for that, but don’t hate on me, because I got in before you.”
Tiffany Haddish and Wendy Williams are a riot on their own, but put them together and you might just end up with, well, who knows what will come out their mouths! That’s exactly what happened when the celebrated comedic actress stopped by The Wendy Williams Show recently to promote her new film, Like a Boss. Oh, and yes, the conversation got wild.
Many us know how to play the game “Who’d You Rather,” where you give someone two options and they have to choose between the two. In this instance, Wendy and Tiffany went a few rounds and used some the biggest A-list men in Hollywood to get the crowd going. Changing the name the game to “Like a Bedroom Boss” so it fit into the movie promo, the lucky guys in question ended up being Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Brad Pitt, Jason Momoa vs. The Rock, Trevor Noah vs. Shia LeBeouf and one that most women have probably debated in real life: Michael B. Jordan vs Common (seen above). Given the recent rumor that Tiff and Common were dating, the answer to that one might actually be pretty obvious.
We won’t spoil the results for all you that want to laugh or even agree — no judgement, ladies! — so watch the fun-filled clip below and get a good laugh in before heading to see Like A Boss when it arrives in theaters this Friday:
Now that the new year is here, it seems though both flings are in the past since the 55-year-old recently shared on Instagram that she was having dinner with DJ Bo. Wendy uploaded an image herself licking her fingers at a dinner table in Manhattan, New York. “Guess who took me for dinner because he likes to watch me eat?!” she captioned the image with DJ Bo tagged.
Bo works as a DJ on Wendy’s show and the duo are both on holidays and are set to head back on January 6th for a live taping.
“There’s so many power girls out here these days…and a lot them do not know how to keep that attitude power back at the fice,” Wendy previously said dating. “Like a man likes a woman to be a woman, in my opinion. They don’t always have to be reminded that you’re the CEO whatever, whatever. Except when you have to pull that out every once in a while.”
Fat Joe stopped by the Wendy Williams show this week to promote his new album Family Ties. While there, the Bronx emcee was asked about his thoughts on the late Juice WLRD, and whether or not he knew the 21-tear old Chicago rapper.
Despite only meeting him once, Joey said Juice was a beautiful kid and very respectful. “I only met him one time,” he said. “He was such a beautiful kid. He was so respectful when I met him, and I was just like, ‘Yo, this is a real good kid.’ So, rest in peace, Juice Wrld.”
Joey then took the opportunity to speak out on pill addiction, comparing his crack usage in the 80’s to today’s pill epidemic. In fact, Joey even says they used to smoke crack when he was younger, but they knew the danger and grossness it. Whereas, Joey believes today’s kids think that since pills are prescription, it’s okay to use and they think they won’t get hooked.
“When we was younger, we would go smoke crack. But you knew you was copping rock cocaine, or you knew you was copping heroin – you knew it was disgusting!” Joey said. “So now, what happens with these pills, being that there prescribed, these kids don’t think they’re pill-heads or crackheads, or they’re nothing. Nowadays they think] ‘It’s legal; it’s cool! We can do as much it as we want.’ And that’s a big understatement because all these kids are dying.” (See below around the 9:22 mark)
Joe continued describing the sad reality the situation and the need to especially protect those living in poorer communities. “Everyday in the Bronx, all these kids are dying – overdosing f pills,” he says. “We gotta try watch these kids as much as we can, ’cause it’s sad … This kid was filthy rich and died at 21 years old, on a private plane!” he concluded.
