Wendy Williams Admitted She Spies on Her Neighbor While He Showers: ‘I Peep and I Tom’
Wendy Williams has had several honesty moments throughout her career. On her show, The Wendy Williams Show, Williams opened up about her health issues, marriage and divorce to Kevin Hunter, and her role as a mother to their son, Kevin Hunter, Jr.
But, in 2020, Williams said she had an exciting way of passing her time during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Wendy Williams said she spies on her male neighbor in his shower
In March 2020, The Wendy Williams Show joined multiple daytime shows that shut down due to the outbreak of coronavirus in the U.S. Although she continued to tape at her house, Williams admitted she didn’t have much to do in quarantine.
During an interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers to discuss her at-home activities, Meyers asked if Williams uses binoculars to spy on her neighbors in free time. Williams laughed and confirmed to Meyers that she often watched the people in her apartment building. She also shared one instance, in particular, where she watched her male neighbor showering.
“I peep, and I tom,” Williams told Meyers before adding a shrug.
Wendy Williams said she likes to have her privacy, even though she spies on her neighbors
While Williams has no trouble watching her neighbors’ private moments, she told Meyers she wouldn’t want the same done to her. Additionally, Williams admitted she wasn’t entirely comfortable with her Wendy @ Home shows. Although the host doesn’t mind sharing her life on television, Williams said she likes to keep some of her life private. She also said she was excited to stop taping her shows at home because of season 12 of The Wendy Williams Show. Williams returned to New York to film the show in-studio in September 2020.
“Well, my thing is, I don’t know how big your home is and how much space you have, but I live in an apartment, you know?” Williams explained. “Not my fault, but I live in an apartment, and it was very personal to me, for people to see, you know, my area. And people criticized and couldn’t understand my groove. And then we just stopped doing that because we were ramping up for new stuff, new season, new Wendy.”
Wendy Williams admitted to being a ‘recluse’ before COVID-19
Williams told Entertainment Tonight that she enjoyed the alone time she experienced because of quarantine. In addition to spying on her neighbors, Williams said she spent most of her time with her cats, Chit Chat and My Way. Additionally, Williams said she’s “getting used to life as a single woman again” in her apartment. In January 2020, Williams finalized her divorce from Hunter after 23 years of marriage.
“I’m a recluse by nature so being in the house is not a big thing for me,” Williams shared. “I’m surrounded by all my good stuff. And there’s good food, got my cats. I spend a lot of time thinking about what new life is going to be like.”
