Wendy Williams has officially found love again as she debuted her ‘boyfriend’ in a Saturday evening Instagram post.
The 57-year-old daytime talk show host shared a snap of her leaning into kiss a mystery man’s arm as she gushed about their weekend together in Miami.
The news comes just three months after she ended things with contractor Mike Esterman who she briefly dated after meeting on the ‘Date Wendy’ segment of her show.

‘My son’s 21st birthday party on the yacht in #Miami was everything he wanted! Even my boyfriend’ she wrote.
The Wendy host beamed as she cozied up to her new man who wore a grey shirt as they drove in a car.
Though it is currently unclear if he does not have social media or she wants to keep the romance private, she did not tag the unnamed suitor in the photo, prompting prying comments from fans.
Wendy’s last ‘situationship’ came in the form of a brief fling with Esterman who was a contestant on a segment of her show in February.
Out of a handful of suitors she opted to go with the Maryland-based contractor as she said at the time he was ‘age-appropriate, and he’s got jokes.’

At the time Mike opted to split their date over the course of two days for maximum time together — and told Access that the two had a definite ‘spark.’
‘It’s all new territory. Getting to know her, she’s very interesting,’ he said, adding that he saw her apartment on a ‘professional level,’ and ‘it was a great time,’ before clarifying there was no sex.
He added that he was eager to go back to NYC to continue growing their bond. ‘I want to go back to New York, I’d love to get to know her more. I want to do that. She’s just funny,’ he shared also saying the night ended in a kiss.
Williams also shared on her show that she has started to fall for him and was sad to see him go. ‘I really like him, and he really likes me. Like it broke my heart when he was leaving. Like I walked him to the elevator and waited for the doors to close,’ she said.

But the fairytale was short lived after he spoke to The Sun in May and implied that the sun had set on their relationship.
‘I don’t know if I can give her what she wants. Nobody called it a day, there’s just no time to meet up. We talk when we can. I can’t hold her back from meeting someone who can give her more,’ he shared.
And Esterman continued to say: ‘She’s allowed to meet others, we’re not in that type of relationship. She will find someone.’
In a second interview he told Page Six that they were ‘never an item after 3 dates.’

On a May 12 episode of her show she addressed the situation. ‘The headline is that Mike and I have broken up. Well, I didn’t know that Mike and I were together.’
She continued to say that she was disappointed he had run his mouth about their fling publicly and called him ‘childish.’
‘I didn’t say anything because I am that grown. We would have had this discussion way behind the scenes. I am not embarrassed because I’m that grown. But since childish ones, Mike — well no, he’s giving quotes!’
And in conclusion she told her audience ‘I’m as available now as I was then. We were never boyfriend and girlfriend, so it wasn’t a thing.’
Prior to that she was in a 22-year marriage with Kevin Hunter until they split in 2019. The pair share her now 21-year-old son Kevin Hunter Jr. and she has spoken out about her ’emotionally abusive’ marriage and his mistress throughout their marriage.
