Wendy Williams is still sounding off about her brother after he blasted her for not attending their mother’s funeral back in December.
As reported, over the weekend, Wendy Williams’ brother, Tommy Williams revealed in a video that his sister didn’t attend the funeral of their mother, Shirley Williams, who passed away in December. Tommy also pointed out that while Wendy did not go to the funeral, her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter was in attendance.
“My mother always said stand by your family and your sisters,” Tommy said in the video. He continued:
“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.”
Tommy clarified in the video that Wendy, 56, attended their mother’s wake with her 19-year-old son, Kevin Jr., but decided not to attend the funeral. He shared that Wendy told him of plans to leave the day of the funeral, but added that she actually stayed in town to have lunch with Hunter.
Wendy responded to Tommy’s statements on the Jan. 18 episode of the Wendy Williams Show.
“Tommy, let me tell you something right now, all you are is my brother,” Wendy angrily said into the camera. “You better stop talking the way you’re talking because now it’s dripping into my comment page,” Wendy continued, noting she caught wind of Tommy‘s comments as she was searching for fan feedback on social media.
“He’s pegging me to being a person that I am not,” The talk show host added before warning her brother. “Honey, you don’t want me to start pegging you for being the person that you are. With full-blown receipts. I could fill the audience with receipts, with the leftovers all the way around the block.
As promised, Wendy dropped receipts during her “Hot Topics” segment on the Tuesday (Jan. 19) episode of her show. The Shaderoom reposted a snippet of the video.
“You started a fight over an open casket, right there over my mother,” Wendy exclaimed. “Thank God we were at a civilized funeral home.” Wendy added, “And the men of the funeral home blocked so that Mommy wouldn’t fall out and there’d be a catastrophe. You should know better at 53.”
