Wendy Williams Bursts Into Tears Because Her Son Hates Her

Talk Show host Wendy Williams broke into tears in the middle of her Hot Topic segment on her show while covering the topic of Madonna calling her son the N-word in a recent tweet. As Wendy spoke about the close relationship between the “Material Girl” Madonna and her 13 year old son, Rocco, she broke down and began to sob revealing to her audience and viewers that her own teenage son, Kevin Hunter, Jr. hates her.

“Rocco’s 13-years-old and Rocco is a real fan of his mother,” Wendy says, suddenly bursting into tears.

“What I discovered this weekend is that my son doesn’t like me anymore. You know how it is, I know what it is… Kevin, I discovered this a while ago, but the ball just got smacked home this weekend.”

A distraught Wendy continued, “You know, he’s all into his father, you know how 13-year-olds are, I was the same way when I was 13, but it is breaking my heart.

“He’s the one who’s 13 and I get it… But it is breaking my heart. And he doesn’t care about Wendy on TV, he doesn’t care about any of that. Anyways, she’s lucky that he likes her,” said Wendy as she wiped away the tears.

Wendy says her son and husband, Kevin Hunter, spend all their time together, leaving her out.

“At this time, I can’t understand men who disappear from their kids’ lives. Thank God he has his buddy, and father,” she says.

“He’s a father, he’s a buddy, they talk sneakers, they go for haircuts, they speed off in the cars and I’m just left there like, ‘Why you so pissed?’ I’m not pissed, I’m a mom!”

Hopefully, the Hunter’s will be able to work through their issues soon.

    I am experiencing the same thing. I know things will change. My sons buddies is his buddies for real. I heard the hate word and there doesn’t seem to be the same relationship when he needed me. I came to the conclusion the relationship is changing and i have to re-introduce myself to this other person who is foreign to me. I use to cry alot to but i figure he rather graduate from the school of hard knocks. He doesn’t have the same relationship with his dad but his buddies seem to be so important. Eventually everyone comes to realize how important the person who mothered you and had your back never left, he did. I think once his hormones stop talking and he starts listening he will realize you are the one who will be there even when they piss us off and make us mad. I am the one who did everything and ended up finding out how to keep myself busy by myself. I am a cancer survivor and found out i can be my own best friend. I know it ain’t easy but you can do this!

      My son doesn’t tell me hates me he’s better than that. But at the same time his friends means a lot more to him than Dear old mom. However, when he gets sick he always call mom. Boys will be boys and they’ll eventually come around. I feel Wendy’s pain. Please stop all those name calling, she’s a woman and beauty is only skin deep

    My two adult sons have a natural bond with their father, no big deal! When they call home, I answer and they ask to speak to their father. They talk about baseball, football, basketball, etc. I am just proud that they have that type of relationship. A mature woman knows this, but if one of my grandsons is sick, guess who gets the call….me. Wendy just get over it, be glad they have that father/son bond. Many a woman wishes for just that, most young men today have no idea where/who their father is. Sounds to me like Wendy is needing some attention!

    Wendy, when your husband grows up and teaches his son to love, honor, and protect, you and other females, then he will not need to be buddies with his son, clearly you have two boys in your life, one who wants to be the hero and one who needs a hero.(monkey see monkey do) You are the adult in the house and at Kevin Jr.s age he does not like authority figures, you have the not so enviable position of being the only grown up parent, I hope his father will guide him eventually from this position of entitled,
    because it will not be a cute look when he gets older. It is one thing to bond with your son and another to teach him something while bonding. children don’t flourish when only being taught Me Me Me Me Me.
    And why should he be into your product, of other peoples misery.

    I can’t understand why some of you make such hateful comments…..If you can’t say something positive, say nothing at all. No wonder there’s so many troubled youth in our communities. Positive attitudes promote positive results. Wendy, your son is just going through a season of the growth process, you & his father need to check him real good. You know what I mean.

    Geeez enough of the drama already ,could’nt she have kept her personal family business private instead of blubbering on national tv about her family issues? embarrassing her son like that? He’ll probably hate her even more now.Theres enough black folks making asses of themselves on all these trashy shows like jerry springer and maury as it is.

      Hate to say it but I agree. We don’t need no more black people making fools of themselves

    What’s going on in the media? It seems the only way to increase ratings and get attention is to put trash out there. We have lost our minds…

    Black women are so confused – never know what the hell they really want. If her so ‘a father wasn’t there she’d complain – he is there and she complains. It’s all about her – she’s a self centered, self absorbed narcissist. Newsflash Wendy adolescence is about self exploration. Thank God he’s gravitating towards a positive role model – his father – and not the streets and giving blow jobs in the boy’s bathroom like she did in high school. Yea I don’t like Wendy – hope my words adequately illustrate that fact. Phony freaking chick from her boobs to her tears – transvestite looking chick just trying to boost ratings for her sorry freaking show – sad. How embarrassed must her son be now? Great parenting!

    Naturally Moi, is this the only thing you could find to fill this space with? With ALL of the really serious problems that are hurting ALL of black America, we are now supposed to ALL waste time with this childish mess that this overgrown woman wants to bother everybody with? What kind of website is this, and who is running this kindergarten show? She wants everybody to help her with a temporary teenage issue??? This is a waste of website space, and makes fools of all of us for even wasting time reading it. GET SERIOUS, MOI! — Rev. George Brooks

    Wendy is menopausal, that makes you emotional about everything. She will soon realize that the boy doesn’t hate her once her cycle starts. Everything will be fine

    Oh please that brick face ho need to sit down and stop putting her personal sheit out there for us to clown. Sheit my brother went off to college, met his now wife and never came home and he did the same sheit Wendys kid did at that age. Black mothers gotta step back and let these boys bond with their dads. Im glad the lil brotha got his dad at home. And if yall notice its only the Baby Boys with no fathers at home thats still living in their mamas basement at 30. In a house with a strong black dad, dad aint havin that sheit. Dads are the ones that start throwing hints and giving their sons six months to save their money and get out and their OWN PLACE!!

    Whats wronv with the boy wanting to become a man?? He s supposed to ride out with dad and get hair cuts do manly shit! We gotta stop coddlin these boys out here makin em soft as tissue paper then when he grows up weak as hell, all the women will still be screaming where are the real men at right? The hell is he supposed to be doin playin dolls pretending to be a diva talking that “how u doin” bullsh!! hands all danglin in front of em, damn.Boys need their fathers in their lives big time, especially Black ones. This when the real education for him begins when he`s learning the ropes with his father, not with crayshawn and jamarcus, then he`ll be pregnant with sharkeisha, i betchu her a$$ will really be cryin then…Women never wanna let you be a man let alone become….

    It’s just the natural resistance and breaking away that teenagers SHOULD go through. He still loves and cherishes his mother and that will become evident by the time he’s in his 20s. Wendy and her son are very fortunate to have such an active dad in the young man’s life. I hope she realizes she has not lost her son’s love. It’s just a phase that teenagers go through (boys and girls) that shocks mommy’s system to the core. Remember when Jesus had the NERVE to tell Mary after she frantically searched three days for him, thinking he may have been killed, in Luke 2:49 “And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” That’s a 12 or 13 year old for you.

    Tell Regina to take that name off of herself, because I means QUEEN, and I’m sure you are no queen. As for my being a reverend, you don’t know ANYTHING, or so little about religion, the Bible, and what any and all of the religions of the earth, now and ever (which I do know all about), so you can’t even start to talk to me about such matters. You, I am certain, have been totally brainwashed in regards to religion, just as most all people, who, first and foremost, don’t know hoot about the origin of this book called the bible, nor the people that put all of the truths, fairy tales and lies in it. And you can start with the Adam and Eve lie, who were NOT truly the first human beings on THIS earth. Black people have been here for between two to four MILLION years, and that is far longer than the 6,000-year-old Adam and Eve. Even the black aborigines of Australia have been on earth for over 50,000 years. So go and talk with your kindergarten religious crowd, “Queenie.” And keep being made a fool of by the “false prophets” that you are following, and paying. I accept NO money for speaking for God, because MY God does not need money, and neither will I be part of that hustle. And there will be no more conversation with Y-O-U. — Rev. George Brooks

    Maybe Wendy should get her son connected to Elijah Cummings Youth Program in Israel? (ha ha) That’s a joke, folks. But I mentioned it because I just found out that this black Congressman from Maryland actually has a group with that name, in which he is involving black youth in the Baltimore area with a bunch of anti-Jesus American and Israeli Jews to help these blacks. And, of course, be heavily influenced and controlled by these Jews (they even take trips to apartheid Israel), who put in the major funds, to buy up “Uncle Elijah” and these poor black children. I have had great respect for Cummings, who is also a preacher, but not anymore. And myself and several others are getting ready to deliver a continuous loud verbal message about Cummings selling out our black youth to these anti-Jesus Jews, and no doubt receiving “silver” from them himself for political favors. Sick, sick, sick. So why not raise this issue Naturally Moi, so that blacks can comment on it. Because we blacks need to free ourselves from Jews, who are in too much control of blacks, including President Obama, who has a bunch of them surrounding him in the White House. — Rev. George Brooks

    Maybe its because Wendy Williams is a media whoring, attention grasping, gossip spreading hater of a shrew and her son sees her for what she is…. garbage that doesnt warrant his attention.

    George Brooks you’re an idiot. Jews and blacks have been encouraged to bicker for centuries by oppressive christian groups looking to use divisive politics to continue their oppression of all peoples.

      You are not only a moron, but an imbecile of whom I will not converse with, but my 14-year-old grandson in Los Angeles can put you to shame, in terms of intellect and general world knowledge. But I will just say to the readers of this website that even Jesus in John 8:44, referred to the majority Jews of whom would know listen nor follow him, as the children of the devil. AND THAT THEY ARE, even today!!! And the reason Christians will not take them on is because they know the whereabouts of the body of Jesus, and where it is buried. And they are holding this over the heads of Christians, because if it is revealed it will be THE END of the Christian religion. For Jesus did NOT ascend up into some heaven in the sky in human flesh. In fact, he is not there period, as even Dr. Martin Luther King revealed. Which I also say, and many others know, but will not say, because, again, it will open the Pandora box on Christianity. But, then, I am not a Christian, but a TruthSeeker. All religions, truthfully speaking, are merely the beliefs of some folks of long ago, with not a single person that have even lived on this earth having ANY true knowledge of God. And anyone who says that they do is simply telling an absolute lie. With no REAL proof to put forth. For all religions are simply based on beliefs. END of the conversation, imbecile. Now return to your kindergarten crowd. — Rev. George Brooks

    WWWOOOOWWW Been there with my son. My son is much older and we were not talking for years. I spent $400 to fix it through a special program —–I was told to just call him and say, Let’s stop and start over now. Put the past behind. I need you in my life. It worked and it’s now 2 years later and he calls me every weekend to chat. He’s an Assistant Principal in a school and has a tight schedule. So I just wait for his call. We talk for hours even though he has a wife and two young daughters. I AM SO HAPPY. So Wendy should set up a Mother-Son lunch to happen regularly to just chat. Then just let him be with his Dad. How wonderful is that——many son’s don’t have Dad’s in their lives

    Let’s take Wendy out of the pictures. Let’s talk relationship between parents and children. As the mother of a 34 year old man women have a connection to their male children just as men have a undying bond with their girls. As boys become young men they some of them start to go in a different directions, they don’t want to go to the movies with their mothers out to dinner etc they don’t talk to us about what their doing and who their doing it with. They think they know it all, life is new and exciting girls look different. The pressure of their peers are strong the struggle of making decisions is greater. Mothers have to know how to allow them to grow at the same time not relishing the rules that have been laid down, demanding respect, not being a friend remaining a parent excepting the fact that when they need you they will come to you. For each of us there is change and with change comes challenge. Keep your eyes, ears, arms and heart open if you must cry never allow your child to see the pain in your heart wipe your tears remember the gift was a loan from God.
