Wendy Williams recently posted a picture with her new boyfriend on social media.
On August 22, 2021, the talk show host set social media ablaze by introducing the world to her new man on Instagram. In the photo, the pair can be seen in a car looking very cozy with one another.
“My son’s 21st birthday party on the yacht in #Miami was everything he wanted,” Wendy wrote. “Even my boyfriend.”
Fans quickly flocked to the comment section to congratulate Wendy on her new relationship.
"You deserve all the happiness in the world," one fan commented.
"Truly happy for you. You deserve nothing but happiness because that is what you bring me and so many others," another fan commented.
Despite the photo, there is little to be known about Wendy's new beau other than that he is a middle-aged white man. But, it's safe to say that details may emerge soon since Wendy appears to be partial to keeping her romantic life under wraps for a short time before giving fans full details.
Wendy Williams initially sparked relationship rumors with Mike Esterman in March 2021.
Wendy deciding to not share many details about her new mystery man is not a shocker — especially since it took some before the talk show host shared the news of her coupledom with Mike to the world. On March 4, 2021, Wendy let the cat out of the bag on Instagram.
She captioned the post, "Mike & I are having fun!! I'm glad he's a REAL gentleman. But @RandyJackson, @birdman & @MarioLopez have tried to block my collards, fried chicken, shrimps, yams, beans, soul roll, Mac & cheese, fish, rice, oxtail & my #carrotcake! We WILL discuss once I gather myself."
Mike and Wendy initially met during the "Date Wendy" segment on her talk show in late February 2021. Mike described himself as being in the “real estate and home improvement” business. They also connected over their shared love of boxing and crabs from his home state of Maryland.
While Wendy revealed that Mike was a friend of Mario Lopez, he also signed off on them being a good match. And things appeared to be going really well with the pair until the relationship went left.
Wendy and Mike Esterman called it quits in May 2021.
In May 2021, The Sun shared that Wendy and the contractor have slowed things down on the dating front. Mike shared that the two simply didn't have enough time for one another.
"It's a busy time of the year for home improvement. I don't know if I can give her what she wants," Mike told the outlet. "Nobody called it a day, there's just no time to meet up. We talk when we can. I can't hold her back from meeting someone who can give her more."
Wendy was briefly seen with a 27-year-old convicted felon.
In June 2019, Wendy was spotted with 27-year-old Marc Tomblin in New York. The pair was seen shopping together, leading most to assume that they were together.
"I am a 54-year-old grown ass woman. I know what I'm doing," she said, according to TMZ.
But, the two weren't really an item for very long. Not long after being spotted out with Marc, Wendy addressed her dating life on her show, admitted that she was seeing someone.
“All right, listen. It’s not who you think. Mother doesn’t deal with children,” she said, likely referring to Marc. “But it just so happens that I guess with my charm and wit I attract people of all ages. If you’re 27, like my new friend Marc — OK, relax. So here’s the deal. The paparazzi are chasing. [Marc is] from L.A."
She continued, "He came to New York, he had never been to New York before. And I am a hand-holder. If we go out, I am holding your hand. I went out last night for dinner with my executive producer David Perler and I held his hand.”
While it's clear that Wendy is enjoying the dating world, we hope that her new man is her perfect match. After all, Wendy deserves to be happy.
