Not even 48 hours after we learned about Wendy Williams’ new doctor who reportedly took her off the market, it turns out their relationship is over before it even started… literally.
Said doctor — Dr. Darrin Porcher — reportedly laughed when Daily Mail reached out to him to confirm.
"I’m flattered," Porcher said, "but that's not the case. I was brought in to provide security for Wendy during her divorce, she wanted someone with an air of legitimacy. But that's where it ends, I'm happily in a relationship right now."
Meanwhile “sources” close to Williams are reportedly doubling down and insisting there's romance brewing and Williams is "smitten" with her "new man," but they're "taking it slow." (So slow they’re not even in a relationship at all yet?)
If it turns out the two are not together, it wouldn’t be the first time in recent weeks that someone called one of her relationships into question. Blac Chyna already leaked some clues about Williams' possibly staged, former felon boy toy from back in June.
And either way, she’s definitely traded up in the (real-or-fake) boyfriend department. The 52-year-old, Bronx-based Porcher is not only a retired NYPD detective and a criminal justice professor, he was also responsible for the supervision and rescue and recovery of victims in the World Trade Center complex on 9/11. (Here’s his LinkedIn for more details.)
In Williams' defense, she didn't actually say they were together. “Well, I’m not on the market anymore,” she told her live audience on Monday. “I don’t know how I’m doing! I’m not in love, but there’s somebody that I’m crazy about.”
In that case... I personally don't know how I'm doing either. I'm not in love, but there's somebody that I'm crazy about. Attention, Keanu Reeves — that means now we're dating. (Sorry, Winona.)
