Wendy Williams Says She 'Gets' Why People Think She Was Born a Man


Wendy Williams
In an interview with ABC News, the talk show host admits that she understands why some people think of her being born a man, saying, 'I've got a strong face, a strong body.'


Wendy Williams talked about some people's speculation that she was born a man in a recent interview with ABC News. Williams at first was asked about "Orange Is the New Black" star and Emmy nominee Laverne Cox, but the conversation turned into her sexuality.

"People do think I was born a man. That is absolutely not [true]. I get it. I've got a strong face, a strong body, I'm 5ft 11in. I wear wigs," she said. "Do I get upset with it? No. I get where that comes from, but in my opinion, there's no worse way to insult a woman than by saying she looks like a man."

"But once a woman gets over that, there is no stronger woman. It rolls off her back when you say it. There's nothing you can call me at this particular point. I've been dealing with this for decades," she added.

Williams additionally mentioned that her parents "fat shamed" her as a child and that she was not popular at school. "I had a very tortured childhood," she recalled. "I didn't grow up the popular girl, or the popular cheerleader. I've never been to a prom, I didn't have a lot of boyfriends, so I'm used to being on this side of life."
