Wendy Williams has revealed she has a new boyfriend and is making their relationship official on Instagram.
The “Wendy Williams Show” host, 57, took to Instagram on Saturday to share a photo of herself inside a car with a man, whom she did not identify in the caption . It’s unclear if he doesn’t have an Instagram account or if Williams just wanted to keep their romance private and therefore didn’t tag his unnamed beau in the post.
“My son’s 21st birthday party on the yacht in #Miami was all he wanted! Even my boyfriend,” the talk show host wrote in the photo caption.
Williams’ post about her new boyfriend has got many fans and celebrities to send him congratulatory messages.
“Glad you’re happy Wendy !!!!” Milly Almodovar posted with heart emoji.
âYou deserve all the happiness in the world,â Devyn Simone wrote.
Williams’ new romance came three months after her affair with entrepreneur Mike Esterman ended. The host and Esterman met on the “Date Wendy” segment of her show in February. Among a handful of suitors, Williams chose him, saying he was “suitable for his age and had jokes.”
Esterman chose to split their date into two days so they could spend more time together. He told Access they had a definite “spark”. He saw her apartment and they had a great time together, but clarified that there was no sex. The Maryland-based entrepreneur said he wanted to return to New York and get to know Williams better.
Meanwhile, the “Love Triangle” star made no secret of her interest in Esterman at the time. “I really love him and he really loves me. Like it broke my heart when he left. Like I walked him to the elevator and waited for the doors to close,” said Williams.
However, Williams and Esterman’s romance was short-lived. In an interview with The Sun in May, he said they no longer see each other.
“I don’t know if I can give her what she wants. No one called her someday, there just isn’t time to meet. We talk when we can. I can’t. prevent her from meeting someone who can give her more, Esterman said. âShe’s allowed to meet other people, we’re not in that type of relationship. She will find someone. “
In a separate interview with Page Six, he revealed that they were “never an item after three dates.”
Williams also addressed their relationship on the May 12 episode of her show.
âThe headline is Mike and I broke up. Well I had no idea Mike and I were together,â she said. âI didn’t say anything because I’m so tall. We would have had this backstage chat. I’m not embarrassed because I’m so tall. But since the kids, Mike – well no, he gives quotes! I’m as available now as I was back in. We have never been boyfriend and girlfriend so it wasn’t a problem.
Williams was previously married to Kevin Hunter until she filed for divorce in 2019. Their 22-year marriage ended after discovering that Hunter had cheated on her and even fathered a child with his mistress.
