Charlamagne has alway maintained that he has no ill will toward his former mentor, boss and friend Wendy Williams. In fact, he expressed his hopes that Wendy removed her husband Kevin Hunter from her life so that she could move forward in her life healthily. And from the looks of things, he meant it.
It was her who pretended she didn’t know who he was when fellow radio personality Elvis Duran asked Williams about her relationship with Charlamagne in 2014.
The slight was particularly egregious because not only did Wendy and Charlamagne work together, she and Kevin, her estranged husband, allowed him to live with her when he first came to New York, a time Charlagmagne chronicled in his book Black Privilege. But he also shared that he decided to part ways with Kevin Hunter because of the aggressive and intimidating way in which he handled business.
But with Wendy’s recent decision to separate from Hunter, it seems that Wendy and Charlamagne are ready to let bygones be bygones and repair their friendship.
“The invitations for social events just keep pouring into my phone. All of a sudden, my cell phone rings and it’s DJ Boof (Williams’ resident DJ) asking me out for dinner…Then I get back to reading my book and my phone rings again. It was Charlamagne. Charlamagne wanted to take me for dinner. So, he says the night and he says the time. And I said I can’t go. I’m going out with Boof for dinner. So Charlamagne says, ‘Well, I know Boof. Why don’t we both take you out for dinner.’… So I’ve got a double date.”
Later, Wendy said Bevy Smith and Andre Leon Talley wanted Wendy to come to a Ball—as in a Voguing Ball.
Interestingly enough, Charlamagne made Kevin Donkey of The Day today. Saying, “The reason I have never had no smoke for Wendy is because number 1, I feel sorry for her because she was an abused woman on various levels.”
He concluded this read with a profound statement, “Never bite the hand that feeds your sidechick.”
It’s nice to see so many people are showing up for Wendy during this transitionary period in her life. We’re sure she could use the company and the encouragement.
