The daytime talk show host says she never thought she'd stick around after being cheated on.
Wendy Williams may be known for helping people through their life’s drama, but recently it was the talk show host herself who sat in the hot seat to talk about her past relationship issues and how her husband’s infidelity strengthened their marriage.
Williams revealed to VLAD TV that in 2001 she found out her husband was cheating, only months after giving birth to their son Kevin.
“If you told me when I was 25 years old or 30 years old that I would stay around for a cheater, I would have been like you are lying,” says Williams. “I’ve got way too much to offer a man to stick around for him cheating on me. At that particular time, I had my career in radio, I was making a great salary, I had vacation property of my very own and the world was my oyster, so I definitely thought I wasn’t staying around for some cheating. But I did and I don’t regret it.”
Williams says she and her husband had to work as a team during this gritty time in their relationship to really find healing.
“The best advice that I can give is that if you’re the one who was cheated on, whether you decide to stay or leave, forgive and forget either way,” says Williams.
The couple decided to reveal their story in Williams’ 2001 autobiography, Wendy’s Got The Heat, and shared that the rough patch in their relationship made their marriage stronger.
“No I’m not back to the girl that I was before him because when you get stung like that you never go back to who you were, only a fool does,” says Williams. “But I love him and he loves me. “
So after dealing with an unfaithful spouse, what’s Williams’ advice for those cheating on their significant other?
“For people who do cheat, unless you are cold busted, take it to your grave,” she advises.
