Andy Cohen Says He's Been Rooting for Wendy Williams for Years: Her 'Husband Was Not My Biggest Fan'

Andy Cohen Says He's Been Rooting for Wendy Williams for Years: Her 'Husband Was Not My Biggest Fan'

Andy Cohen has nothing but praise for Wendy Williams.

While stopping by The Wendy Williams Show on Thursday, Cohen couldn’t help but commend the outspoken host for recently cutting ties with her ex-husband Kevin Hunter — both personally and professionally — after he allegedly cheated on her.

“Your husband was not my biggest fan but I want to you know I have been cheering you on the last six years,” Cohen, 51, sweetly told Williams, 55, during his appearance on the show.

“I’m happy to be back and I’m so happy about Wendy in the city,” he continued, referencing Williams’ comments from a previous episode about her new life as a single woman in New York City. “You seem light as a feather!”

“Life has really changed,” Williams noted.

She certainly isn’t exaggerating, either.

In April, Williams filed for divorce from Hunter after over two decades of marriage. She then went on to cut ties with her ex professionally; he was removed as executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show, and she dissolved The Hunter Foundation, the non-profit organization the couple founded in 2014.

The split unfolded after Hunter allegedly fathered a child with his mistress. It also came at a challenging time for Williams who, after taking an extended hiatus from The Wendy Williams Show from January to March, revealed that she had been living in a sober house to cope with her past addiction to cocaine.

Hunter broke his silence on the cheating scandal in a statement to PEOPLE in April, admitting he was “not proud of my recent actions.”

“I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs,” he said. “No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine.”

Weeks after filing for divorce, Hunter responded to the petition, requesting that the

Diane Kruger Spent Her Birthday in Paris with Norman Reedus and Their Baby Daughter

Diane Kruger Spent Her Birthday in Paris with Norman Reedus and Their Baby Daughter

Diane Kruger spent her recent birthday in her favorite place!

The Inglourious Basterds star, who celebrated her 43rd birthday on Monday, spent the special day in Paris, France, with boyfriend and Walking Dead star Norman Reedus and their 8½-month-old daughter.

“Twenty-one again!” Kruger joked on her visit to Live with Kelly and Ryan on Thursday. “We had so much fun. I’m filming right now in Europe and we were filming in Paris, which was so fun. And Norman, my boyfriend, came to visit, and you know, we just had a baby, so the three of us were in Paris.”

“And it was Bastille Day on Sunday, so they had fireworks at midnight, and you know,” Kruger added of the celebratory family time.

Talk show hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest gushed over Kruger’s ability to speak French, joking that when they visit the City of Light, locals give up on speaking their native language to them.

“We speak English with a French accent,” Ripa joked.

Kruger explained that she mastered the language when she moved to France at age 15, saying she “had to, because nobody speaks English to you, as you know.”

Kruger’s birthday included some activities that weren’t totally family-friendly, though: she told the hosts that she and Reedus went to the famous Crazy Horse cabaret show.

“So I took Norman, he was like, is it my birthday or is it yours?” Kruger said with a laugh. “He was literally like” — Kruger mimicked her beau’s open mouth — “I was like come on, close your mouth. It’s cute.”

“It’s so fabulous. I’ve been a few times, and this one in particular right now is really good, the show,” Kruger added. “It’s beautiful, though. Those girls are amazing dancers.”

Cats Trailer Hilariously Slammed as 'Scary' by Social Media Users: 'Pure Nightmare Fuel'

After much anticipation, the Cats trailer is here — and social media users have their claws out!

The first glimpse into the star-studded remake of the classical musical dropped on Thursday and disturbed viewers did not hold back when it came to sharing their responses on Twitter.

“The #Cats trailer goes deep into the Uncanny Valley and discovers there is no bottom. Pure, straight-up nightmare fuel,” one user wrote.

“To whom does one report an abomination? A priest?” another user tweeted alongside the clip.

“The Cats trailer cursed the next four generations of my bloodline,” author Victoria Aveyard expressed.

“The cats trailer was frightening! I was so scared. I might not see it as a musical, but I will definately go see it as a scary movie!” a different user said on Twitter.

Comedian Ian Abramson went to great lengths to emphasize the eeriness of the clip by editing the “I Got Five On It” remix used in Jordan Peele‘s Us onto the Cats trailer.

Virginia Man Sues Godiva Because the Belgium Chocolates Are Not Made in Belgium

Virginia Man Sues Godiva Because the Belgium Chocolates Are Not Made in Belgium

A Virginia man is taking legal action against Godiva after he claims their products were falsely-advertised.

The lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday, alleges that the chocolates purchased by the man in Washington D.C. were not actually from Belgium as they were advertised on the packaging, according to documents obtained by NBC 4’s Scott MacFarlane. 

The lawsuit states that “Belgian 1926” was displayed across the front of the chocolates, which would lead a “reasonable consumer” to assume that the product was made in Belgium at a “premium” price.

Instead, the document reads, “all Godiva chocolates sold in the United States are created at a plant in Reading, Pennsylvania.”

The man is now seeking $74,000 in damages, according to MacFarlane.

Representatives at Godiva did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

RELATED: Cadbury Is Hiring Paid Taste Testers to Try Out Their Chocolate

Godiva was founded by the Draps family in 1926 after initially starting as a small praline-making business in Brussels, Belgium, according to the company’s website.

The company was initially called Chocolaterie Draps but later changed their name to Godiva (after Lady Godiva) once the family decided to open an exclusive chocolate shop.

In 1966, the family crossed paths with the Campbell Soup Company, who eventually acquired a third of a stake in Godiva and went on to introduce it to the American public.

Though they no longer own Godiva, Campbell’s played a major role in helping the chocolatier expand all over the world, with more than 600 stores currently in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.

The soup company also bought a plant in Reading, PA during the 1960s to help with production, which has since become the spot where the company makes chocolate for the U.S. market.

The Belgian plant, meanwhile, produces for the rest of the world, according to Godiva’s website.
