Wendy Williams weighed in on a telling topic on Friday’s broadcast of The Wendy Williams Show.
The episode had been pre-taped Thursday, after Williams hosted the live show without wearing her wedding ring — or mentioning any marital issues — just before news of her divorce broke.
During Friday’s “Ask Wendy” segment, a newly single fan sought advice from the host about jumping back into the dating scene.
“I don’t mind a dating app,” Williams said.
After finding out that the fan works in corporate development and technology, Williams said a dating app might be the right fit for her.
“If you had a more fun job where there was more socialization, then I would say a dating app, well, you don’t really need that,” she said. “Because I always prefer a face-to-face. But I don’t mind a dating app ”
“Good luck!” she added.
