The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce honored Wendy Williams with the 2,677th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. With her son Kevin Hunter jr by her side, on October 17th on the famous boulevard, Williams took in the honor of receiving her star for her work in entertainment.
“The elephant in the room knows that I’ve had a tough year,” Wendy said during her acceptance speech. As many fans know, the television show host filed for divorce from her husband of nearly 22 years, Kevin Hunter Sr., in April after he fathered a child outside of their marriage.
“Slowly but surely I’m climbing out of the pit and this is one of those monumental days. If you don’t believe in yourself who is going to believe in you? Sometimes life is a very lonely path and you have to make some hard decisions,” she added before introducing her son, Kevin Jr.
“I want to give some love to my son Kevin. It’s me and you kid. Kev’s only 19 so he only knows me doing this… He only knows mom up here… Somehow he always tells me I’m just mom… There’s one person here that knows, you know you now, there’s no place like home… Thank you Kevin.”
Wendy Williams has entertained millions as both a radio and television host for generations. The Wendy Williams Show, which is now in it’s 11th and current season, has been renewed through 2021.
