Wendy Williams with Gary Owen, the comedian spotted out on an apparent dinner date with sparked romance rumors. This confirmed date comes on the tail of the two’s chemistry-laden interview on the Wendy Williams Show, which wedged the attention of Owen’s separated wife, Kenya Duke. Duke and Owen are now involved in a continuing unpleasant divorce fight, which Owen debated at length with Williams on her talk show.
During Wendy Williams and Gary Owen’s recent visit to the Wendy Williams Show, Williams was already putting on a playfully sultry voice and seductively arranging herself on the couch as Owen walked out on set. She fluttered her eyelashes and fiddled with the hem of her skirt, no doubt trying to tempt Owen into checking out her admittedly nice legs.
Not one to evade the issue, Williams confidently asked Owen where he lived and after he answered that he lived in Cincinnati, Ohio, Williams coquettishly asked how much time he spent in New York. The stress of a long-distance relationship was what ended the romance between Williams and the man she was previously attached to, so it makes sense that Williams would get the hard questions out of the way first.
Williams then discussed when they both appeared in the film Think Like A Man, but were both married to other people at the time. Williams admitted that she’d had her eye on him way back then, even though she was still married to her now ex-husband Kevin Hunter.
“I’m married at that time,” Williams presented as a clarification for her lure to Owen. “I’m not dead,” she added to a clearly nervous Owen. He replied that he was amazed that he factored in on her radar seeing all the other good-looking men in the film, but Williams insisted that he “stuck out” to her, which caused a stir in the audience.
They discussed Owen’s ongoing divorce with his wife of 17 years Kenya Duke. Owen clarified that he’s not a “deadbeat dad” as Duke had accused him of being, noting that the former couple share three children who are now all adults.
Williams, demand to know if Owen or Duke had cheated in the relationship. Owen told that lawyer had advised to keep silence. However, he added, “There’s a big twist in my divorce, that I can’t talk about, but it’s a doozy. I can’t speak on it yet, but it’s big. It changed the dynamic of the whole divorce.”
Williams quickly asked, “Did you have a baby with another woman?” Naturally this would be a dealbreaker for Williams, since that’s exactly how her marriage to Hunter fell apart.
Owen aggressively denied the question, nearly shouting, “NO! Nothing like that! It’s not scandalous.” The discussion then moved on to Owen’s soon-to-be ex-wife, who had made several public comments about the divorce. “I wanted to keep it private, but I guess she…” Owen trailed off suggestively. Owen had been accused by Duke of cheating on her with Claudia Jordan, an accusation which Owen denied to Williams.
All that in-depth discussion about their divorce clearly rubbed Duke the wrong way, and she responded to the interview on her Instagram page. She posted a long message that read, in part, “I was shocked you spent most of your time talking about me, the divorce, son and daughter…You could have shut it down real quick with ‘that’s my past, I am focused on my future’ why didn’t you?”
The couple then spotted at the reopening of Scotto’s in New York City, which neither has publicly admitted to nor said anymore about. The gossipcop wrote, “Judging from Williams’ demeanor on her talk show, she likely wouldn’t mind going on a few more dates with Owen, who seemed to be at least slightly tickled by her apparent interest in him.
Williams has made it clear that she’s looking for a new love interest in her life, as evidenced by the ongoing Date Wendy segment on the show. It seems like she really hit it off with Owen, so only time will tell if the two of them will become romantically entangled. We’ve got our fingers crossed.”
