On Thursday, Andy Cohen appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” for the first time in six years. Cohen gave Williams flowers for her 55th birthday and alluded to why the two haven’t been close right off the bat, mentioning Williams’ estranged husband, Kevin Hunter.
“Your husband was not my biggest fan,” Cohen said. “I’ve been cheering you on for the last six years.”
In fact, Cohen has alluded to fans that Hunter was the cause of his and Williams’ falling out before.
Last July, when radio personality Charlamagne Tha God — another one of Williams’ former friends — appeared on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” Charlamagne openly called out Hunter as the reason he and Williams were no longer speaking, and Cohen agreed.
“He was the one thing,” Charlamagne said, to which Cohen replied, “I think that might be the one thing that happened with she and I, too.”
On Thursday, following his appearance on the show, he retweeted a fan who wrote, “@WendyWilliams @Andy watching you guys literally in tears ??It’s like watching my 2 besties that haven’t seen each other in a while!! The love is real ????.”
Cohen gushed over Williams with excitement, telling her, “I’m so excited about Wendy in the city,” a reference to Williams’ new single status and her ‘hot girl summer.’
Williams filed to end her 22-year marriage in April. Hunter was later fired from the show after previously serving as an executive producer.
Wendy made a tearful return to her show after a little more than a month off, where she finally opened up to fans about her divorce filing and now her new romance with a doctor she’s claims she’s “crazy about.”
