WENDY WILLIAMS EXPLAINS HER ERRATIC BEHAVIOR: During her talk show yesterday (April 15th), Wendy Williams explained why she broke down in tears during her show earlier this week. She said,“I cry at least once a day. And I’ll tell you when that at least once happens. Seven o’clock here in New York when we’re supposed to raise the roof, open the windows, scream outside with our pots and pans, clap ’em together for our first responders. Me and my cats, we participate in that. Like, I dig that.” She continued, “The cops and the doctors and the nurse and the school teachers and the MTA drivers that are dropping at a rapid rate, You know? So, that’s one time I cry. Another time usually happens when I see something else that’s just chokingly sad on the news. There is this woman who lost her family. Her husband died one day alone. Alone, because he has the corona. And then her son, her only child, died a few days later.”
