Wendy Williams brought a younger man who she met while on the most Hollywood of vacations the other day back to New York City, where they're continuing to hit up paparazzi-friendly hotspots like the fabulous Nobu restaurant. The talk show host, who is still on a summer break from The Wendy Williams Show, stepped out in a low-key hot pink feather outfit like a Las Vegas showgirl, holding hands with her new honey on the way in and out of the restaurant.
According to TMZ, her bicoastal date's name is Marc Tomblin and he's served time behind bars for conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. Page Six did some additional digging and learned that the 27-year-old has also has been convicted of felony breaking and entering.
Earlier in the day, after TMZ asked if she worried about what this looks like to the public, she said, "I am a 54-year-old grown ass woman. I know what I'm doing." She then reminded everyone of this fact that no one forgot: "Look, my husband had a full baby with a woman he was involved with for 15 years ... where I was cooped up only to be a show pony. Now, I'm living my life."
At Nobu, she again told them she will do what she want, and, of course, "Howyoudoin'?"
The lovebirds were also caught hitting up the ATM and Williams herself says she thought "Oh my God, if cameras are there it will be, 'there she is giving him money.'"
Not everyone is buying this new dating scenario, including Tasha K, the vlogger who has advanced the theory that Williams and Kevin Hunter are secretly reconciling behind the scenes, stated in a new video that she believes this is a contrived plot to get back in the public's good graces and that Williams may not be totally sober now or even when she lived in a sober house.
Whatever is happening, at least Williams is eating well in the process.
