Wendy Williams told it all in her movie

She’s spent her entire year dishing gossip about almost every celebrity but now, Williams herself is in the hot seat. She gave fans a deep look at her life in her biopic — from her early days in New Jersey to her rise to the famous TV star she is now.

Longtime fans, of course, already knew her journey was no cakewalk. She’s been open about her past drug use, battles with Graves disease, and personal issues at home. But the movie pulled back the layers of her life even more, exposing fans to all sorts of new information.

What Wendy Williams said about her alleged relationship with Eric B.

Williams claimed she became romantically involved with Eric B. sometime after he and Rakim did an interview on one of her radio shows. She painted it as a toxic fling that ultimately ended when he allegedly ruined her credit with his irresponsible spending habits.

“Our relationship, I mean if you could call it that, didn’t even last a year…when it was all over, my credit was ruined, and I was growing his seed,” she said in a voiceover.

Williams shared that she chose to abort the baby — something she kept a secret from Eric B. “I went alone and I went in secret…I didn’t tell him or anyone else. It was one of the loneliest experiences of my life,” she continued.

To be clear, this wasn’t the first time she spoke out about dating Eric B. She previously said in a 1999 radio interview and in a 2019 episode her show that they had once been involved. But she had never gone into as much detail about it nor did she say she’d ever been pregnant by him.

How Eric B. reacted to the movie

After the movie aired, Eric B. seemingly reacted to Williams’s claims on Instagram on Jan. 31. He posted a throwback photo of himself standing near a car along with the words “Damn, I need a rental.”

Captioning the post, he wrote, “Too hilarious. I laughed too. Well it made for great TV. But the truth is something different Try that !!!!!!!”

With both sides claiming different stories, it’s hard to tell what’s what. But perhaps they’ll be able to hash this out together one day.
