TGIF! Particularly for both Jussie Smollett and Wendy Williams.
While presenting her “Hot Topics” segment on “The Wendy Williams Show,” Williams was guessing if Smollett would attend the 2019 NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday as he arrived in the west coast city.
Not only has Smollett had an eventful week with his case being dismissed and his record wiped clean, but Williams has also had her own set of issues to deal with. The host’s husband, Kevin Hunter, reportedly welcomed a child with his mistress. She also revealed she has been living in a sober house and was reportedly hospitalized due to alcohol relapse.
“He loves the camera, and he loves to pose,” Williams said of Smollett. “Jussie was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, and he was spotted at LAX.”
She then popped a throat lozenge in her mouth before quickly removing it. “Long week” Williams stated as she placed it in her coffee mug.
Later in the show, Williams reminded the audience that next week is a pre-scheduled week off.
“We are on vacation for seven days,” she said. “We will be back the following Monday.”
A much needed break for Williams.
