TV host Wendy Williams is firing back at her brother, who claimed that she did not show up to their mother’s funeral.
Tommy Williams has claimed that his sister was having lunch with her ex-husband Kevin Hunter at the time of their mother’s funeral in December, despite Wendy telling fans that she was taking time off from her talk show to grieve. During Monday’s “Hot Topics” segment on her show, Wendy said that Tommy is out to make her look bad, claiming that Tommy is “pegging me to be a person that I’m not,”
“You don’t want me to start pegging you to be the person that you are, with full-blown receipts. I could fill the audience with receipts,” Wendy threatened. The media star provided those receipts during Tuesday’s “Hot Topics” segment when she claimed that not only was she in attendance but that she witnessed her brother fight with a family member over her mother’s body inside of the funeral home.
“You started a fight over an open casket, right there over my mother. Thank God we were at a civilized funeral home,” she claimed. “And the men of the funeral home blocked so that Mommy wouldn’t fall out and there’d be a catastrophe. You should know better at 53,” Wendy fired back.
Tommy shot back at his sister, claiming that she attended their mother’s wake, but not the funeral service along with her son and ex-husband.
Their public beef began on Saturday when Tommy posted a video directed at his sister. In the clip, he says, “I don’t understand how a person can miss out on giving a salute to the one person who is always there, who always showed support.”
It is unclear what prompted Tommy to post the video or how long their feud has been going on.
