During the episode, Wendy Williams begins by telling her bosses that she is proudly showing off her legs on this particular episode, rather than concealing them, as her mother always told her to flaunt her long pins.
Wendy Williams concludes the discussion by revealing that her mother helped her choose that outfit before passing away.
It has to be seen to be believed, check it out below:
“My mum passed away many, many, many, many weeks ago,’ the 56-year-old star added. “You know how you lose track of the day and time? All I know was it was a long time ago. The five of us, my mom, dad, my siblings, the five of us — she will always be here.”
Wendy Williams added that her mother passed away “beautifully and peacefully and surrounded by love. She didn’t suffer, not one bit.”
Wendy reflected on her relationship with her mother, saying the two often acted like “teenage girls” together.
“Gone is the best mother, the best girlfriend, that a girl could ever have,” she said, holding back tears. “I feel fortunate that I had her in my life all of my 56 years.”
Punters have taken to social media to offer their condolences to Wendy, but also acknowledge their surprised reactions while watching the episode.
