Much is known about Williams’s marriage to Hunter. The ending of their relationship was chronicled in the public when it was revealed that Hunter had a live-in girlfriend for years and that they had welcomed a child together when he was still married to the talk show host.

However, Williams’s new Lifetime biopic, Wendy Williams: The Movie, reveals her sordid dating history before her marriage to Hunter. Williams revealed that R&B singer Sherrick raped her in the ’80s.

“I was just all gaga over this man, and he asked me to go to an album release party with him that night,” she revealed to Yahoo! “Before the party, I was date-raped by him. After that, I found out he had spent time in jail. I was also date raped in college. Those types of things happen to girls all the time.”

Williams also revealed more details about her relationship with rapper, Eric B.

Wendy Williams refuses to go into detail about her first husband in her movie

Though Williams chronicles her marriage to her Hunter, including her miscarriages, Hunter’s infidelity, and her tumultuous divorce, she refuses to go into detail about her first marriage. In the film, Williams only briefly refers to the first marriage saying that it wasn’t worth mentioning.

Williams was married to her first husband, Bert Girigorie, for just five months in 1994. Other than the fact that he was a businessman, no one knows much about Girigorie. In her autobiography Wendy’s Got The Heat, Williams doesn’t detail the relationship either. She only calls him by his pseudonym, Robert Morris III.
