Although it's only February, it's safe to say that our good sis Wendy Williams is having the hot girl summer of our dreams.
Last April, Wendy filed for divorce from her husband of 11 years, Kevin Hunter, after rumors of a longtime affair were confirmed by a new baby. Since then, Wendy's life has been nothing short of a rollercoaster, but according to this 55-year-old bachelorette, now that her divorce if officially finalized, she's focused on enjoying the ride.
Between impromptu twerking in the streets of New York, casually dating, and partying it up with her celebrity friends, Wendy proves that there is life after divorce and in a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, Wendy revealed that she's living hers to the fullest. She told the host:
"After nine months, yes, I am fully divorced. A door has closed. An old life. The new chapter has been so lovely."
While her highly-publicized split may have been heartbreaking, Wendy says that she's on a mission to put the pieces back together––even if that means starting from scratch in a new city:
"I'm not mad. It was 25 years I don't regret, but, you know what, sometimes people move on with their lives, and I have to tell you something. I now, I no longer live in Jersey. It is Wendy in the city."
Wendy's newfound single status is one that she takes seriously and although she's decided to dip her foot back into the dating pool, she's doing it with intention. The host said that while she doesn't have a type when it comes to her dating preference, respect, a prenup, and separate bank accounts are all pre-requisites for her next potential suitor:
"I don't have a type when I date. You know what's interesting? When you get grown you realize that within five minutes, even the worst guy, you know, visually or size-wise or whatever, if he's got game, I'm in. As long as he can pay his own bills, because those days are over."
In the past, Wendy has been transparent about the fact that she doesn't want to live with her next partner, a trend that has become increasingly more popular among long-term relationships. According to Wendy, one of the requirements for her next husband (because she's "a wife, not a girlfriend," she said what she said) is that he needs to have his own house––one that, of course, isn't hers.
"Here's what I need, I need you to be at least in your fifties, or maybe 48-plus. Grown children who are not living with you. You need to live by yourself, so we can hang out at your house or my house. There's no one in my house but me. I'm not dealing with a five-year-old calling me 'Mommy,' get out of here with that. Freshman year in high school, help him with homework, get out of here with that."
