There is one silver lining to Wendy Williams having been married for many years to Kevin Hunter:
There's no way she could do worse with her next man... right?
The only direction she could head in would be up, considering Hunter cheated on her so brazenly that his mistress gave birth to his child this spring.
That's what we've been assuming, at least.
But then we learned that Williams had a sexy new boy toy with whom she's been playing -- and then we learned the identity of this sexy new boy toy and... well...
... maybe we were wrong.
Maybe Williams can do worse.
According to TMZ, Williams is dating someone named Marc Tomblin.
He and the talk show host have been spotted out and about, doing shopping and enjoying each other's company, at various points over the past few days.
There's more to this story, however.
Or more to Tomblin's story, we should say.
Based on court record, Tomblin pled guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon in Charlotte back in 2013.
Police say he was part of a group of three people who robbed a man at gunpoint and, as a result, he sentenced to 15-30 months -- all of which Williams was apparently aware of when she started knocking proverbial boots with Tomblin.
The talk show host told TMZ this week that Tomblin had already told her about his conviction long before the website broke the news to the public.
How does she feel about her new lover's past?
"I am a 54-year-old grown ass woman. I know what I'm doing," she says.
Wendy makes no excuses or apologies, either.
She says she's just having fun and, come on, doesn't she deserve to do so after all she's been through of late?
"Look, my husband had a full baby with a woman he was involved with for 15 years ... where I was cooped up only to be a show pony," she also tells TMZ.
"Now, I'm living my life."
What else is there to say, we guess, except: You go, girl!
Williams met Tomblin when she was out partying recently with Blac Chyna.
He was by her side over the weekend when Williams broke down over her family situation, specifically the fight her son got into with his dad just a couple weeks ago.
There are ""no strings attached" to this relationship, she concludes to TMZ, emphasizing for all to know and understand:
"He is lovely, but let me make it clear ... I don't have a boyfriend."
