Wendy Williams is known for throwing shade, and she’s caught plenty, too.
However, she recently told ABC that the harsh criticism she’s received through the years—including claims that she’s really a man—has just strengthened her.
“People do think I was born a man,” acknowledged Wendy who is a mom. “That is absolutely not [true]…I get it. I have a strong face, a strong body. I’m 5’11. I wear wigs.”
Though she can understand why some have questioned her gender, Wendy didn’t deny that it’s hurtful, and she’s been dealing with that type of judgment all her life.
“I has a very tortured childhood,” said Wendy who shared that she had few friends growing up. “I was tortured. They fat shamed me.”
Unfortunately for Wendy, at 50 years old, she’s still dealing with the commentary about her looks.
While co-hosting with “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” Porsha Williams, who has previously shared her dislike of Wendy, compared the Think Like a Man Too actor to Ving Rhames.
Before Porsha’s comments, Wendy said that being described as a man is the ultimate slam.
“There’s no worse way to insult a woman than by saying she looks like a man, but once a woman gets over that, there is no stronger woman,” Wendy said.
