Wendy Williams was blasted by her brother Thomas Williams Jr. for skipping out on their mother’s funeral. Not long after his video went viral, Wendy posted a photo of her enjoying appetizers with her friends.
This comes after Thomas expressed his feelings via Youtube.
‘My mother always said stand by your family and your sisters. But what makes somebody not go to their mother’s funeral? I don’t understand not giving a salute to the one person who was always there and showed you support. I don’t understand how a person cannot go to a funeral and hold up the one person or the family member that you do have, the parent that you do have left, and just move on. Keep it moving. I don’t understand how to keep living somebody who could cause that type of pain.’
In the comment section of The Neighborhood Talk, there were many people who defended the broadcasting legend.
‘I really SUCK with funerals I HATE going to them and she might not have wanted the last time she remembered seeing her mother was in a casket….people grieve differently,’ wrote one person.
Another added: ‘Maybe she didn’t want to see her like that for the last time of physically seeing her.. I almost missed my grandma funeral bc of that.. she’s going through enough.. Allow her to grieve as she please, please.’
While this person said: ‘Wendy is in a certain place. When she talked about her mum, she did not cry or even seem sad. I don’t think it has set in that her mother has died. She said her mum died many many months ago…it has not set in yet. Leave her alone.’
There were a few who condemned the talk show host for her alleged actions like this person who wrote: ‘I don’t care how differently people grieve. That’s her MOTHER. She supported Wendy so hard. If she has time to go out for appetizers and post about it she could have attended her mother’s funeral. Even if she sat in the back with sunglasses.’
Whatever the case may be, hopefully Wendy and her loved ones are able to grieve in the healthiest way they can.
