Wendy Williams is looking on the bright side and admitted she’s more than ready for love during a live interview with NYC’s 107.5 Circle of Sisters event on Monday.
The TV personality, 58, was full of energy and high spirits when she returned to the public eye and happily revealed that she’s “can’t wait” to bring a new man into her life.
The talented broadcaster notably checked into a rehab facility earlier this year in September due to a relapse with alcohol, which ultimately led to health issues for the star.

The star looked healthy and glowing as she sat comfortably on stage at her former radio station’s annual Circle of Sisters event in the big apple, which celebrates “20 years as the original black women’s empowerment fair,” according to the official website.
Wendy dazzled in a shimmery dark gray jumpsuit that was belted up the front with a self-fabric belt and glittery detailing.
To keep warm in the chilly autumn weather, the talk show host slipped on a pair of fuzzy baggy black boots.
He enthusiastically chatted with the audience in short videos that were uploaded to the radio station’s main Instagram page capturing special moments.
Occasionally: Wendy seemed in good spirits as she headed to a photo shoot for her podcast in NYC on Monday.

During the interview under the bright stage lights, Wendy told the audience, “I can’t wait to fall in love.”
The star admitted, however, that she doesn’t “want to get married,” but did explain what she was looking for in a man.
‘I want him to already have children. I want it to be somewhere around my age, maybe 10 years younger than me, maybe 15 years older than me, you know what I mean,” the TV personality expressed to the crowd and interviewer, JusNik.
“Then, we’ll be able to do things together like want to fly out of New York City suddenly, if we want to fly to France to be there for two days to eat or whatever.”

Wendy had previously been married to her first husband, Bertrand Girigorie, since 1994, but their divorce was finalized shortly after in 1995.
She married once again in 1999 to Kevin Hunter, with whom she shares a 22-year-old son. The couple divorced twenty years later in 2019 after having a daughter with her lover Sharina Hudson.
During the panel, an audience member had the chance to share kind words with Wendy, as well as share admiration for the star’s strength, stating, “there are millions of us behind you.”
As Williams listened, she could be seen holding back tears as the crowd erupted in applause.
‘I have tears of laughter but also sincere tears. Just…thank you all for being here today,’ the broadcaster said emotionally in a shaking voice.

Wendy was discharged from a wellness facility last month after checking in in early September following a relapse with alcohol abuse. Fans had early expressed their concern for the star’s health due to her thin frame and bewildered exchanges.
In October, after the star left the spa facility, a rep informed E! News, “Wendy is excited about the road ahead and looks forward to publishing her many projects.”
The statement continued with, “It means, ‘Thank you to my fans for your love, support and many prayers, I’m back and better than ever.”
The Wendy Williams Show, which ran for a whopping 14 seasons, premiered its final episode in early June. Sherri Shepherd, who filled in for Wendy last season due to the star’s medical issues, took over the timeslot with her show simply titled Sherri.
Though her beloved series is coming to an end, the former host has been working on her latest podcast project called The Wendy Williams Experience.
