During the past few weeks since it was announced that Wendy Williams filed for divorce from her estranged husband, she has been getting back to the Wendy she was before she met Kevin Hunter. Although she is absolutely living her best life, she isn't ignoring the fact that she had to say goodbye to a relationship that she's had for nearly twenty years.

The talk show host is focusing on her career and self-care since leaving a New York sober house. She appeared at the Black Enterprise FWD Conference where she spoke with media site The Grio.

She opened up about her line of work and how she treats everyone when she meets them.

'I just take all of the naysayers and negative things that’s happening and smile and keep it moving. When I see you, I still hold my hand out to shake your hand, but it’s given with a stiff arm and I don’t go in for a hug. I don’t tell them why I’m holding them at arm's length because you can’t claim a part of my success. Those people had nothing to do with my success. Getting a contract and getting hired is one thing, but making it a success was all me. I’m just saying, it’s not being selfish; it’s called survival.'

However, she also spoke on the subject that has everyone talking -- her divorce from Kevin Hunter.

'My husband and I were partners, but I just had to clean the slate and start over. I’m good at this new role, at least I think so, but this isn’t new for me. I met my husband on my 29th birthday. I was already a property owner. I was already a radio star. I was already the boss of my own life.  I’m returning to that life with a bigger platform and I love it.'

She went on to say: 'I will say this, there was no one else that knew that I could do this. He [Kevin Hunter] was the one who told me I could do it. When Kevin entered my life, he was 23 and I was 29 [big smile] and he was available. It was always me, my attorney and Kevin. His name wasn’t on the paperwork, but he was a huge part of that. Now, I cheer for myself, but I’m still madly in love with him. You see it in my eyes.'

Are you surprised by Wendy's statements?

    Wendy is a very intelligent woman and I know that I too have fallen fooled over a piece of man. However, I ended it once I came out from the clouds. As women we all have had a bad apple. You get up and cut the cord and keep it moving. She now knows her worth and it has happened to me so who am I to speak. Go Wendy I'm rooting for you. Ive used men just like they've used me, what's good for goose is good for the gander. Now that I'm older a man isn't that important any more if you want me to just keep it real. I barely want sex and I have a man and get tired of him. To each it's own. Do what makes you happy Wendy !!

    You go Wendy, life is like a "box of Chocolate "", (Forrest Gump), you never know what you will get. Live your best life. Your past with Kevin is what it is, there was good ,bad, and indifference. We all that are breathing has had them. A person is lying if they say they have not. I have not always agreed with some things that you have said, but one has a right to agree or disagree. I pray for God's blessing and discernment with whatever relationship or venture you undertake Eleanor Garcia!!!👍🙏🥰

    She’s a hot mess. No prenup and still in love with the dude who’s been cheating on you for 15 years it’s the same women, then had an outside “oops” baby on your old tush. No self esteem or control over her life.
