Wendy Defends Dating 27-Year-Old, Says “I’m Living My Life” After “My Husband Had A Full Baby With A Woman He Was Involved With For 15 Years”
Wendy Williams is getting up close and personal with a new, much younger guy, and she doesn’t care what people think about it.
The 54-year-old talk show host’s new beau, whom she posted about earlier this week and has been seen hitting the streets of New York with, has been identified as Marc Tomblin, 27. According to Bossip, Tomblin has a criminal record, including being convicted of robbery with a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering following an incident in Charlotte back in 2013. He did time for the crimes, serving fifteen months before being released in 2014, and was put on probation.
Williams knows all about this though, and she told TMZ that his past has no bearing on the fun she’s trying to have with him right now.
“I am a 54-year-old grown a– woman,” she told them in response to the release of Tomblin’s criminal history. “I know what I’m doing.”
She went on to say that she’s living her best life after years of being betrayed by estranged husband Kevin Hunter, and she’s living it on her terms.
“Look, my husband had a full baby with a woman he was involved with for 15 years … where I was cooped up only to be a show pony,” she said. “Now, I’m living my life.”
As for Tomblin, Williams reportedly met him while hanging out in L.A. with Blac Chyna. The star, who loves food, said she had a hankering for an orange soda and potato chips and he caught her eye when he was able to help her get some. Since then, they’ve been photographed together and she called him a very sexy man whom she happens to be old enough to be the mother of:
She brought him back to New York with her to run around town and to have “no string attached fun.” They’ve been seen walking hand in hand and making stops at the bank while she struts around the city in booty shorts, carrying a large amount of cash and he carries an ensemble in a Perry Ellis garment bag. Aware of the paparazzi’s presence during that cash grab, Williams said she did have a thought: “Oh my God, if cameras are there it will be, ‘there she is giving him money.'”
All that being said, Williams is still having a good time so far with Tomblin. Don’t get it confused, though, she still says he’s just a friend.
“He is lovely, but let me make it clear … I don’t have a boyfriend.”
