Talk show host and media personality Wendy Williams has a new lease on life, and a new attitude. The newly divorced media maven is “out here” living her best life with no signs of slowing down. Williams sat down with Seth Meyers for a socially distanced interview segment on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” as she’s on the promo trail for the return of her daytime talk show and also confessed to rather strange behavior. And it is one that she makes zero apologies for.
It would seem as though the 56-year-old has taken “getting to know” her neighbors to another level. Meyers asked the talk show host about rumors that one of the ways she passed her time during the pandemic was to look out the window of her apartment at people with binoculars. Williams not only confirmed the rumors to be true but also admitted there’s a specific apartment building across from her where she views a man taking showers.
“There’s an apartment building across,” she says to Meyers, “and the man takes showers, and the shower is right there at the window and I watch.” Meyers, noticeably shocked, asks what she sees, assuming the window isn’t that big, but Wendy reveals the window is… quite the “window of opportunity”, confirming the size of it allowed her to see from “head to ankle.”
Meyers then jokes that what the talk show host is doing could be “borderline criminal”, and Wendy, in true Wendy fashion replied: “I peep, and I tom.
The two also discussed her current dating life, now that her divorce was finalized (as of earlier this year). She revealed that it was easy to date for the first two months of social distancing. “You know, date, have fun, do stuff, shake it and shimmy,” she explained. “But by April, May, June, July, August, September — five months — I’m like, ‘Uh-uh, don’t come over here.’”
“The Wendy Williams Show” is slated to resume production and return on air on September 21st. Choosing to shoot the interview at the studio of her show as she prepares for the next season, she also spoke on filming from home due to the pandemic, and also confessed she didn’t’ like filming from home, as well she didn’t miss the live audience due to her background in radio.
“My thing is, I don’t know how big your home is, and how much space you have, but I live in an apartment, you know?” said Williams. “Not my fault, but I live in an apartment, and it was very personal to me, for people to see, you know, my area. And people criticized and couldn’t understand my groove. And then we just stopped doing that because we were ramping up for new stuff, new season, new ‘Wendy’.
She continued on in regards to not having an audience for a while, saying “in radio you only have a microphone and you in a booth, until you don’t.” She takes a beat and looks around her set and continues, ”like, this right here is something else to me. But I’m still only used to talking to me in my head and you looking at the camera, so it’s not a big deal not to have an audience. I can’t wait for my co-host to be back. But right now we are on total lockdown here at the show. Everyone, including me, we get three different tests every single day, and that’s the way it goes and it’s not just this building, it’s the one across the street.”
