Wendy Williams is not dating anyone. The 55-year-old TV host claimed she’s still single and the New York jeweller William Shelby or Big Will whom she snuggled with over the weekend was not her boyfriend. She insisted their relationship was strictly platonic.
“I had an interesting weekend,” she addressed the romance rumors on her show. “It was all innocent to me but apparently it caused waves everywhere else. All I’m doing is being Wendy.” The mother of one added she did “really like” William “a whole lot” but “not in that way.”
“I was only at the studio for 35 minutes. I was with my friend, who is also my jeweler, Will. … Here is the big [scoop]. Will is my friend, he happens to be a jeweler,” she told her audience, claiming that she’s just “one of his probably low-paying clients” and nothing more.
The “Wendy Williams Show” host also said Big Will was “involved with his family” and “got whole another life.”
She then explained their matching outfits shown in her Instagram photo. “No, we did not plan to dress alike. … A lot of you all said we looked like a couple. No, we’re not a couple,” she said. “I got on a beige negligee and threw on that [coat]. It was cold out. And then we get in the studio and I put it on my ‘gram.”
She also insisted they did not cuddle. “We’re huddled in the studio ’cause it’s freezing in there,” she explained before concluding, “We are not a couple and I do not have a boyfriend. That’s it.”
Before cozying up in the studio, Wendy and Big Will enjoyed dinner together. “He sent his car for me..dinner in pursuit. Happy Friday!” she gushed on Instagram.
Wendy split from her husband Kevin Hunter in 2019 after discovering he just fathered a child with his mistress. Before the hookup rumors with Big Will, she was romantically linked to DJ Boof after he took her out for a dinner in New York City following New Year.
