Even though Wendy Williams’ messy divorce feels like it has scarcely begun, it was a long time coming.

Clearly, Wendy is not wasting any time finding a new man for herself.

And by new man, we mean a man whom she describes as "sexy" … and young enough that she could be his mother.

On Monday morning, June 10, Wendy Williams took to Instagram and posted a photo of her in the sunlight, embracing a man’s hand.

"Last night was the most beautiful sunset in Sherman Oaks with special people," Wendy’s caption begins.

Notably, she and her staff are all on vacation.

"Thank you, California!" Wendy gushes. "You’ve won me over!"

It’s not every day that you hear a New Yorker say that.

"I’ll be back for the Hip Hop Festival in August!" she tells her fans.

But people’s eyes were immediately drawn to the hand against which she is so clearly snuggling.

Wendy’s tags tell it all.

She writes"#oldenoughtobeyourmother," which is the type of boasting disguised as a self-deprecating statement known as a humblebrag.

In another tag, she praises this person as a "#verysexyman."

Wendy then labels the photo as all part of "#mynewlife."

It’s great to hear that Wendy is moving on, and with someone young enough for a woman of her means and fame.

But … who is he?

Many were quick to theorize that she’s currently boinking DJ Boof.

He’s a familiar face from The Wendy Williams Show and he’s young, and they were even spotted hanging out together recently.

But that was last week.

This week, he was far from SoCal — in fact, DJ Boof was in Atlanta. He has an alibi, so to speak.

Hilariously, DJ Boof had to swat away this theory all day long on Monday.

"Are you dating Wndy,” a follower asked on Instagram, prompting Boof to reply: “No."

The cacophony of questions got so bad that he took to his Instagram Stories to address it.

"Try again!!" he instructed his followers. "Not my hand!!!!"

People are scrambling for answers.

And, until Wendy identifies her cougar cub, the speculations will continue.

Some have, of course, been spouting a different theory at anyone who will listen.

There are those who wonder if perhaps Wendy hired a hand model to snap a photo.


Maybe to make Kevin Hunter jealous — and drive him crazy — during their divorce. Maybe as a small punishment for allegedly attacking their son.

Or maybe it was directed at fans. Maybe Wendy wants them to see her living her best life.

You know those services that give rich people fancy trash to throw away to make their lives look more glamourous? This could be that but for dating.

We somehow don’t believe that, however.

One, no one actually expects her to be dating this early, so we don’t imagine that she’s really that desperate.

Two, Wendy knows the ins and outs of fame and how their stories are covered better than anyone.

A fake dating story is bound to get out — especially if she’s doing it on TMZ‘s turf.

Even if it’s long after the fact, that sort of revelation would be all kinds of embarrassing.

So congratulations to Wendy and her boy toy. There are many roads to healing from a divorce. It looks like she picked a fun one.
