Radio “shock jock” personality turned late night TV host Wendy Williams talks about how she spends her time alone in her cover story for the May 10th 2010 issue of JET Magazine, due on stands nationwide Monday (May 3rd). She says being a “family woman” is what keeps her together and focused. The 45-year-old host of BET‘s “The Wendy Williams Show” also revealed that she enjoys time to herself so that she “put tracks in her wigs” … whatever that means.
Wendy Williams has made a living sharing her boisterous, raw personality with her listeners and viewers. As the host of her own TV show, the nationally syndicated Wendy Williams Show, Williams talks about anything — the juiciest celebrity gossip, her new wigs or squeezing her size 11s into eye-catching high heels.
However, when she’s done recording her live show every weekday, the former radio personality enjoys the solitude of her home in New Jersey. “Being a family woman at this particular juncture, with my career, it is the one thing that absolutely holds me together and keeps me totally focused,” says the 45-year-old Williams of her husband, Kevin Hunter, and 9-year-old son Kevin Jr. “My business is in New York, but my life, the salt of where I’m from, is here in Jersey.”
“Spending time by myself with no telephone, a little TV, a little crafting, I may put tracks in my wigs or reorganize my white T-shirts…I enjoy my own company, I like the woman that I’ve become,” she told JET.
