There’s nothing like clarity! After telling audience members and viewers at home that her son no longer likes her, Wendy Williams explains to The View that Kevin does enjoy her company and he, in fact, loves her.

“He came down to my dressing room and was like, ‘Mommy, I love you. You are so cool,’” says the talk show host of her son’s reaction to her on-air meltdown. “He’s like, ‘Mommy, I don’t have time to leave the room. I need to say this to you now so you understand.’ So I say, ‘Kevin, this is the thing. I guess I just got emotional over something I probably should’ve shared with you earlier.’”

Wendy had an emotional breakdown on Monday’s airing, telling her fans that she didn’t think her son liked her anymore. “What I discovered this weekend is that my son doesn’t like me anymore. You know how it is, I know what it is… Kevin…I discovered this a while ago, but the ball just got smacked home this weekend. He’s all into his father. You know how 13-year-olds are. I was the same way when I was thirteen but it’s breaking my heart,” said the star.

Although her reaction was quite emotional, Wendy isn’t the only mom who hasn’t felt the love from her teenager. Have any of you mothers out there ever felt neglected by your teen son or daughter? Share your thoughts below!

  3. Well, teenagers do exert some independence as the end of elementary school and beginning of middle school. But, I have never seen well loved well raised kids be outright mean and cruel to their parents unless there is a deeper underlying issue at work in the relationship. She also said her son isn’t rude or mean to his father. They are buddies. And, the son doesn’t care about her fame or the show. Hmmmm! So, clearly he has an issue specifically with Wendy and her mothering. A few days before her breakdown, Wendy stated on her show or after show that she was a workaholic throughout her career and would hardly take days off even for holidays. Her career and advancing was everything to her. So, I wonder if while she was climbing the career ladder the father was playing mother and father to the son. Thus, their bond is stronger and there is some deep resentment for his mother cause she didn’t spend much time with him. Instead of crying about it on tv, she needs to get to praying and spending less time on Wendy and more time on the few years she had left with her son at home.

    • I don’t have teens but I totally agree with your comment. I’m sure Wendy loves her son very much. However, like a lot of hardworking successful people who work long hours she is probably the type that thinks just because she has some free time that her son should drop everything and shower her with attention. You can get away with that when they are little but as they get older they start to resent being treated that way.

  4. My 13 makes me feel the same way. He doesnt pay me no attention. He wants sto hang with the guys and make me feel like a stranger at times.

  5. THAT HURT WENDY DID’NT IT? IMAGINE WENDY HOW MUCH YOU HURT

    PEOPLE’S FEELINGS WHEN YOU ARE MEAN AND INSENSITIVE AND THROW

    YOUR SHADE. THINK…THINK…THINK RIGHT NOW ABOUT THAT. I SUPPOSE

    THE PAY CHECK MAKES IT FEEL ALRIGHT THOUGH HUH?

    • I don’t know, but I got more ticked that she diverted from the disgusting comment Madonna hash-tagged about Rocko, by crumbling over Kev growing-up (yes, I watched the show repeat @midnight just to see that). It wasn’t addressed by stating “At least her son likes her…” I thought she would say more.

  6. It hurt bad when my sons started pulling away. As parents you put so much time into your children it is emotional when they become teens and appear to need you less. It can be especially difficult for moms because we carry them for nine months. I know they love me because they tell me all the time. But they aren’t my babies anymore they are men with lives of their won and I’m happy but I can understand where Ms. Williams was coming from.

  7. I understand how you feel Wendy. My son is 22 and in College, when he come home to visit he has no time for his mama. It does hurt my feelings. I have to call him, he never calls me, unless (mama I need to talk and that talk is $$$$$). I CAVE.

  8. People took what she said out of context. When kids are teens, they do grow apart fronmtheir parents but in their mid 20s or 30s, they will come back around. I def didn’t want to be any where near my crazy moma (lol) once I hit 14 but had to, Then at 17, my world was my friends and college. Now I’m cool with my mother again. Wendy will be fine. This is her ONLY child, so I understand where she is coming from but still she has to let go some.

  9. I’m my son’s mother, not his friend, sibling, girlfriend or child. He’s enjoying the life I already had. He doesn’t need to be under me 24/7. Go enjoy being a teenager & a young adult. I’m a mother, I’ll always be here when & if he comes back.
