Wendy Williams has a message for women who like to go after married men: don’t.
Williams weighed in on a recent interview in which Ayesha Curry said she’s had to chase off some overzealous female fans who don’t seem to care that her husband, NBA player Steph Curry, is in a committed marriage.
“For you lonely girls who can’t keep your hands off other people’s men, there’s a hot place in hell for you,” said Williams as her studio audience cheered in agreement on Thursday.
Williams is in the midst of a divorce from her husband of 21 years, Kevin Hunter, and many saw the message as one directed more to Hunter than to women thinking of pursuing Steph Curry.
While Williams placed most of the blame on single women who cross the line, she also had some pointed words for married men. “I feel a woman is only gonna do that if the man lets her.” She continued, “Most of the time if a woman’s doing something like that she’s got nothing to lose…if she’s doing that to a married man with a family he’s got everything to lose. So if you bite back, man…you lose.”
