Wendy Williams Reveals ‘Tortured’ Childhood
Behind the smiles of our favorite celebrity personalities are secrets that loom in the shadows of their success. It isn’t until they reveal certain tribulations that we’re reminded they’re people too. Wendy Williams may look fabulous with thousand dollar wigs and shoes, but the media maven had a “tortured” childhood that followed her well into her older years.
The daytime talk show host is approaching her 50th birthday and opened up about being bullied in an interview with ABC’s Dan Kloeffle.
“I had a very tortured childhood,” she said. “I was tortured, they fat shamed me … So, I want to talk about growing up. I want to answer the big question about the boobs. People know they are breast implants, but a lot of people, I read and see, ‘You’ve lost so much weight now, you need a breast reduction.’ I will answer you straight and direct, if you are in Vegas.”
Wendy also revealed her stuggles with being called a “man.” “People do think I was born a man,” she said. “That is absolutely not [true]. I get it. I’ve got a strong face, a strong body, I’m 5’11. I wear wigs.”
Despite her upbringing, Wendy’s reached a level of stardom that most people dream about. It didn’t come without sacrifice, she clearly lost a lot of friends in the process. But, Wendy says she regrets none of it!
