The former daytime talk show host claimed to Hollywood Unlocked founder Jason Leethat she secretly married a New York Police Department officer named Henry, but her rep says she spoke too soon.
“That’s inaccurate,” William Selby tells Page Six exclusively. “She is excited about a new relationship and probably got carried away in conversation.”
As for whether Williams’ mystery man is, in fact, a cop, Selby adds, “Wendy doesn’t wish to disclose details at the moment.”
On Tuesday night, Lee recalled his phone call with Williams, 58, who told him she was flying to Los Angeles later this week but also had some other bombshell news.
“She says, ‘I’m married.’ I’m like, ‘What?’ She’s like, ‘I got married,’” the podcast host recalled of their back-and-forth.
“I’m like, ‘You got married when?’ And she’s like, ‘I got married last week.’”
Williams appears to have a penchant for police officers, as a 2019 report claimed she was dating a former cop and criminal justice expert named Dr. Darrin Porcher; however, he later denied the relationship.
“It’s flattering to hear, but it’s not the case,” he told us. “I’m in a relationship. I just worked security for her for a couple of weeks after she filed for divorce [from Kevin Hunter].”
