What Is Going on With Wendy Williams and Blac Chyna?

Wendy Williams has made a successful career out of speaking her mind. The talk show host has become famous for her “hot topics” segment, where she breaks down the news of the day and often takes a deep dive into the personal lives of various celebrities.

Her bluntness has often gotten her into trouble and she has been part of a number of celebrity feuds, including a notorious one with reality star Blac Chyna. Many were shocked when, on the May 15th episode of The Wendy Williams Show, Chyna paid a visit to Williams’ purple couch and seemed to make amends with the host.

It all started in 2016 when Chyna, who was not a well-known name at the time, started dating Rob Kardashian. Williams, a vocal critic of the Kardashian family, had a few words to say on the subject of their relationship. Williams insinuated that Chyna was only dating Kardashian in order to try and cash in on the family name and that there was no way that Chyna was actually attracted to Kardashian.

Williams also made mention of Chyna’s past as an exotic dancer, and referred to her as a woman who “came from the pole.” Chyna clapped back at Williams via social media, asking if Williams had “lost her mind.” Her comments didn’t stop Williams, who continued to talk about Blac Chyna on her talk show over the next year until Kardashian and Chyna’s relationship eventually fizzled out and devolved into a nasty child custody battle.

What did Blac Chyna discuss with Wendy Williams?

Knowing the history of tension between Williams and Chyna, fans were that much more surprised when Chyna visited Williams’ talk show. Williams and Chyna exchanged a hug before talking for over fifteen minutes about everything from Chyna’s past with the Kardashian family to her current relationship with her mother. Williams also introduced her to the studio audience as “Angela,” a gesture that seemed to touch Chyna greatly, as she even thanked Williams for the sweet introduction.

Williams even asked Chyna about Rob Kardashian, the father of Chyna’s two-year-old daughter, Dream Kardashian. Chyna admitted that she still talks to Kardashian frequently, but that she doesn’t think she will ever get back together with him. She acknowledged that while their relationship seemed unlikely, she had genuine affection for Kardashian and that she wanted him to see his real worth, even when he was at his lowest point. At the end of the segment, Williams and Chyna discussed Chyna’s upcoming docu-series, which she’s currently filming for the Zeus streaming service. It seems that, for the moment, all is well between Williams and Chyna.

Is Wendy Williams a changed person?

The interview with Chyna revealed a side of Williams that fans don’t often get to see. The talk show host was compassionate and understanding and genuinely seemed to want to understand the troubled reality star. This seems reflective of a new side of Williams that has slowly been revealed over the past few weeks, ever since she announced her divorce from her longtime husband, Kevin Hunter.

There’s no doubt that Williams is living her best life, including reconnecting with friends, focusing on her health, and even getting back on the dating scene. The new Williams is also determined, it seems, to get to know all of her guests, even those with whom she has feuded in the past. It will be interesting to see where this new direction in her life takes her – for now, everything is coming up roses in Wendy Williams’ world.
