Wendy Williams and Cardi B partied a little too hard this weekend at a birthday celebration for Hollywood Unlocked founder Jason Lee.
The two spent most of the night together according to reports, and at one point Cardi B was seen laying on her back on the banquette, arms and legs up in the air “dancing”.
What a night.
Wendy Williams, 55, and Cardi B, 26, spent the evening at a VIP area in NYC, at Bryant Park Hotel.
Williams was dressed to impress with a big black coat full of sequins, a bejeweled shirt, and what appears to be flesh-colored fishnets. Cardi was a little more understated in trainers, black leggings, a white crop top, and an oversized black hoodie.
On Instagram, Williams shared that she was at the party with Cardi B and long-time friend Medina, as well as her son and nephew. I can’t be the only one who feels bad for her son – at 19 you’re at a huge Hollywood party… with your mom?
That can’t help your street cred.
Video from the night show the two dancing and drinking together, acting like old friends. At one point Cardi twerks for Williams, who cheers her on. At another point, Cardi is flat on her back, legs, and arms in the air, dancing to the music.
This is all relatively out of character for the talk show host, who is working on reinventing her life after her split with her husband, Kevin Hunter Sr, in April. The two were together for 22 years.
The divorce came after she admitted to going to one of the best drug rehab clinics in her attempt to recover from an addiction to alcohol and cocaine. She was living in a sober house for several months at the start of this year.
When she discovered that her husband had fathered a child with a mistress during their time together, Williams finally got the courage to call it quits. She removed him as an executive producer of her show, dissolved their charity, and filed for divorce.
For her 55th birthday last month, Wendy planned her own party, invited 12 people who didn’t know each other well (She called them the “dirty dozen”), and ate hot dogs, wings, and drank frozen hot chocolate. One of the party-goers was Blac China, who she referred to as her “little sis”.
When speaking about her life since their split, she says she “doesn’t know” the person she is becoming but she likes her so far. It must be hard having spent so much time with a person and now finding yourself single.
The Wendy Williams Show will return to the air in September of this year. We have to wonder just how many of these famous new friends she will bring along to interview?
