Wendy Williams Says She Attended Her Mother’s Funeral & Her Brother Started A Fist Fight With A Family Member During The Service

It looks like the on-going drama between Wendy Williams and her brother, Tommy Williams, over their late mother’s funeral, won’t be coming to an end anytime soon. On a recent episode of The Wendy Williams Show, Wendy Williams took the time to address her brother’s claims that she skipped out on their mother’s funeral. While speaking on-air she said directly to her brother,

“Tommy, you know I was at Mommy’s service and you know she looked beautiful in her casket. And you know that you fist fought a loving member of our family [who is] half your age.”

She continued and said,

“You started a fight over an open casket right there with my mother. Thank God we were at a civilized funeral home and the men of the funeral home blocked so Mommy wouldn’t fall out and there’d be a catastrophe. You should know better at 53!” 

Wendy Williams also said that her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, helped break up the fight between her brother and the unnamed family member. 

“[Kevin] walked up to the front and separated my brother and this young family member, who was very confused being a young man. And he moved it all out there to the lobby.”

As previously reported, Tommy Williams recently took to his own social media pages and made allegations that his famous sister skipped out on their mother’s, Shirley Williams, funeral. He said,

“I don’t understand how a person can miss out on giving a salute to the one person who is always there, who always showed support. I don’t understand how a person cannot go to a funeral and hold up the one person or the family member that you do have, the parent that you do have left, and just move on. Keep it moving. I don’t understand how to keep living somebody who could cause that type of pain.”

In a separate video calling out his sister, Tommy Williams also claimed that their father was deeply hurt by Wendy’s alleged absence from Shirley Williams’ funeral. 

“Our father didn’t even know you were in town for the viewing. You’re out eating lunch with your ex and your son, which wouldn’t be a problem I guess, if you had told your father that. He was hurt, he’s hurt Wendy. That’s why I’m here right now. It’s not fair, it’s not right, it’s painful. It’s painful for him, it’s painful for me, it’s painful for the family.”

He added, 

“You can call me out, you can say whatever you want about me. It’s not about that. I’ve been married 21 years, you were married 21 years, right? It’s not about [your ex-husband] Kevin. Kevin came to the viewing, I thought it was great. Thanked him, thought it was wonderful, showed his admiration and his love for mommy. That night was special, memorable, fond memories, mommy’s still here all the time. I’m sure she doesn’t understand Wendy why you didn’t come to her funeral. Why did you have to lie to daddy, and tell him you were gonna be back in New York and you were here?”
