When you think of the people you want to invite to the strip club, “Mom” doesn’t usually make the cut. But in the case of Wendy Williams’ 19-year-old son Kevin Hunter Jr., that’s exactly what went down.
The 55-year-old talk show host discussed the unlikely outing on a recent episode of The Wendy Williams Show. She made no apologies for bringing her son Kevin along with her nephew, Travis, to see some exotic dancers after receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last week.
Not only did Wendy Williams escort the two young men to the strip club, she even taught them how to properly pay respect to the talent.
Wendy Williams is having a difficult year
This is one uplifting story amongst a wave of tragedy in Williams’ life. Earlier this year, Williams announced she was splitting from husband Kevin Hunter after rumors of infidelity, a secret love child, and years of abusive behavior. Now Wendy Williams is striking out on her own and doing things her way.
And one thing she’s doing is showing her son and nephew the ropes at a strip club.
Williams didn’t think she’d take Kevin to the strip club
Wendy Williams explained how the whole trip got set up on Monday’s episode of her show.
“First of all, I didn’t think anything of this was going to be happening, Second of all, I think a guy is supposed to go with their father if they wanna go to a strip club,” she said on the segment. “He [Kevin Jr.] asked me, like, three months ago, ‘Mom, take me to a strip club.’ Are you outta your mind!?”
“But, when we were out in L.A., somehow the spirit hit me…,” she said of her decision to go.
She had to teach the boys how to ‘make it rain’
One of the dancers recognized Wendy Williams and started speaking candidly with her. As Williams explained, she said, “’I got two kids and I’m in nursing school and I’m only doing this… Miss Wendy, please don’t judge me.’”
Williams continued, “I’m like, ‘I’m not judging you. Look, can you move over to my son?'”
But Kevin didn’t know what he was doing and was apparently just “dropping” money all over like an amateur. So his mom had to show him how it was done.
“I’m like, ‘Girl, come back over here,'” Williams explained. “Do it again.” She acted out sliding money toward the dancer in one smooth motion. “I’m like, ‘What’s wrong with you two? You gotta make it rain!'”
Wendy Williams has a close relationship with her son
Though she’s on the outs with her estranged husband, Wendy Williams is closer than ever with her son Kevin Jr. During her speech at the Hollywood Walk of Fame event, Williams expressed her love for him.
“There’s one person here that knows, you know, there’s no place like home, right?” she said, her voice shaking with emotion. “A little burning food in oven, time to run up to the grocery store, let’s go. Just mom. Thank you, Kevin.”
