At least, that’s the vibe people are getting after the 54-year-old posted a picture of herself having fun in Los Angeles with a mystery man.
“Last night was the most beautiful sunset in Sherman Oaks with special people,” she wrote as the caption for a photo with her arms wrapped around leg of a man wearing denim while they sat poolside. “Thank you, California! You’ve won me over!”
The newly single talk show host hashtagged the image with the guy, “#oldenoughtobeyourmother #verysexyman #mynewlife”
We got a better look at who this man in question was when Wendy, who rode around in the passenger seat with him, was approached by TMZ (you can see him in there video). They pretended to mistake him for Kevin Sr. (though the men look nothing alike) in an effort to get her to spill the beans on who he is.
“That’s not Kevin,” she said before calling him “a friend.”
“Please don’t ask about Kevin. We have an 18-year-old son and I’m sensitive to that,” she said. “That’s not Kevin.”
When the photog attempted to ask the guy who he was, she jumped in and said, “No! Don’t do it, honey. Don’t do it.”
She was, however, more open to speaking positively about her family, including estranged husband Kevin, Sr.
“Young Kevin and I are fine,” she said. “Big [Kevin], God speed. Stuff happens in life, stuff happens and it’s okay. I’ve still got a very full life and I’ve endured. Please don’t make me cry.”
After breaking into tears, she continued.
“I didn’t plan on this but it is what it is. I have a very full life. Thank you for watching. I would say respect our privacy, but please, I don’t respect people’s privacy, that’s why I do the hot topics. All three of us are doing fine.”
When asked if we would see them all come together in the future, especially Kevin Jr. and Sr. following the physical altercation they found themselves in, she emphatically said yes.
“Yes of course you will! Kevin’s got to graduate from college, he’s going into his sophomore year, he’s going to get married and whatever he’s going to celebrate. Yes! Everybody’s got to grow up.” She said. “They’re not apart. Stuff happens in life.”
Wendy and Kevin married in 1997 and had Kevin, Jr. in 2000. After it was alleged that he had a daughter with his longtime mistress, Sharina Hudson, she filed for divorce in April.
