Wendy Williams stopped by to chat with the ladies of The View, and she discussed her recent meltdown about her son.
I was on bed rest to have Kevin. I had to have two five-month miscarriages and he never gave me morning sickness. When he was a baby, he never cried. It was almost as if he knew that I struggled to have him. So I know that at 13, probably for the next five to eight years, according to how I remember me acting… he will be like this. And the gravitation towards his father is a natural thing. They both have an affection for sneakers, fast cars, good haircuts.
But for the last year, it has been, ‘Kevin, stop leaving toothpaste chunks in the sink.’ You tell him that once, you tell him that three times… If I ask you to do something once, you do it then! I don’t play that!
On how Wendy’s son reacted to her meltdown:
It was Martin Luther King Day and he was off from school so he was up in his dad’s office. His dad is one of the executive producers at my show. And he came down to my dressing room and was like, ‘Mommy, I love you. You are so cool.’ And I’m trying to disrobe and he’s like, ‘Mommy, I don’t have time to leave the room. I need to say this to you now so you understand.’ So I say, ‘Kevin, this is the thing. I guess I just got emotional over something I probably should’ve shared with you earlier.’
Wendy said her son made her a handmade card and listed the five things he loves about her.
1. I can talk to her about anything.
2. She’s funny and beautiful.
3. She’s great at mentoring and getting her point across.
4. She’s smart and wise.
5. She’s strict and chill at the same time.
