A Caucasian senior citizen claims Wendy Williams is racist and ageist after her tickets were taken away and given to young Black women before a taping last month.

Diane Stevens, who frequents talk shows in her spare time, told Page Six that on Feb. 14 she and two friends were turned away as they arrived at 6:30a.m. to see a taping of the "Wendy Williams Show."

The 60-year-old from The Bronx said she and her friends took a bus and two trains to make it on time for the taping.

"So because we have canes they let us sit down inside the audience holding [area]. Then the audience coordinator comes on the headset and she looks at us and says into the headset, I am taking the tickets from the older people,'" she alleged.

Stevens claims the audience coordinator took their tickets and escorted them out of the building.

"It was so humiliating," she told Page Six.

Stevens, who is white, said the tickets were handed to three young Black women waiting in line, and she believes the decision to take her tickets was motivated by ageism - because she was old - and racism.

A spokesperson for Wendy Williams' production company denied the allegations.

"We have the best audience in daytime and we provide a welcoming, fun environment for all of Wendy’s co-hosts [as Williams refers to her audience]."

On Tuesday, Wendy shocked her audience by telling them she has been living in a sober house drug treatment home in the Queens area.

Every morning around 7 a.m. Wendy is picked up from the Pure Recovery Network sober house apartments and driven to the studio to tape her show.

Afterwards, she is driven back to the apartments on Pearson Street, where she lives with "smelly boys" who hog the TV and have become like family to her.

Sometimes she is driven to the sober home by her husband, Kevin Hunter, who is reportedly expecting a child with his longtime girlfriend, masseuse Sharina Hudson, 33.

    Poor Wendy she's really being put through the ringer, talk about kicking a man when he's down, she is actually a broken woman, but to be honest i am very surprised if her son would tolerate the father misbehaving in certain ways, i know he cant get involved in everything because of that love and or respect he'll have for both parents, however, i'll be surprised if he doesn't interject whilst his mum is getting beats or re the money for the mistress situation because thats his inheritance his daddy is playing with

  • Renee26

    The truth is comical

  • Renee26

    Hey... I like Sophia. She was funny as hail!!

    Wait a minute now... leave Sophia out of this... that is my girl! Lol...

    LIES!!! They do stack the audience with younger people (all shows do) but I am pretty sure they would not be stupid enough to do this bold faced act!!

    I went to a taping of Maury in the Fall and front center row was stacked with millenials. That is there target audience, young college aged people who love the foolishness. I only went because my sister wanted to go and it was fun!!

  • xenaD

    There was a photo floating around last night of Kevin and that so called girl(pregnant mistress) ? and this woman is running around claiming racism... girl bye

    All I care about from this is what flavor Snapple is in that bag. I'm thirsty.

  • Yardgirl

    Looks like Lemon Tea. I am a Kiwi Strawberry lover but don't have it much due to the calories/sugar.

  • Blue

    I feel you. I try to stick with diet one but I'll go in on that regular mango one every now and then.

  • Yardgirl

    Yumm mango is my second fav!! The diet does not do it for me but yes a much better choice.

  • Pamela

    Ooh please!

  • Bossy704

    I pray that Wendy utilize some oil sheen and a hair brush before her lunch outing today. She looks like no one cares about her.

  • Rere

    Oh well! We black women get disrespected everyday, have a tall glass of STFU?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I believe it. It is amazing the lack of tact & maturity that you encounter when dealing with these types of Direct Service people in the entertainment industry.
    I believe it.

  • Sassie

    Oh trust that wig is gonna be fried dyed and laid to the side by the time she goes to tape....

  • Diva_woman

    I watched the clip of Wendy revealing "her truth", but I'm still confused on what the truth was. Is she living in a sober house because she relapsed or is she saying she's living in a sober house to relate to people currently struggling with addiction? This is really sad that she's going through this and the world is watching while this woman is looking crazy and looks like her husband is taking full advantage of her.

    White People want to be oppressed so badly. ?????Which one is it lady. Racism or ageism. We all know Wendy loves her some white wemenz. I tell y’all what. Let’s break even, let’s subject you all to the exact same generational things. We are going tinstet from the very beginning and keep things going but steady pretend like everything is all good. Then we’ll let y’all use that black people are being mean to me card.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    really wow!

  • Hazel

    She's entitled to select her audience as she chooses. Ask Trump...does anyone believe that he doesn't choose the only black people at his rallies to place behind the podium.

  • bella28498 .

    I don’t believe the old woman. White people will lie especially if they feel some privilege was given to anyone black.

  • Hazel

    I hope you're being facetious LOL

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    MZT just released a story that the side chick keeps giving Kevin ultimatums to leave his wife but he claims they need her money and plus he pays all the bills. Also when he and Wendy take a vacation the side chick comes too but stays in a different hotel ?

  • Kayke

    So what did Wendy do? The person who allegedly took her ticket was most likely white.

  • EasyBreezy


  • EasyBreezy

    Chile... this YT lady cut in front of me in a food line and the sistah-chef saw it. When the YT woman got up to the grill, the sistah-chef looked past that YT woman and asked ME what I wanted. Loved it! I was going to do the same thing, but the sistah-chef beat me to it. Privilege did not have its benefits in this situation.

  • EasyBreezy

    I tried to attach the link featuring the damning picture, but that was a no-go. Lord, I hope that was taking months or years ago. What disrespect!

  • EasyBreezy

    so it was the audience coordinator, NOT Wendy herself... this lady needs to accept that the bouncer decided she didn't make the cut for the the 'club' that day, LOL!!!!!

  • bella28498 .

    This is the end game for white folk. They know their time is up in a few.

    The side chick needs to hush and get that money while she can.

  • Carla
  • shauna

    The actual original headline from the NY Post clearly states she leveled the claim against the show, not Wendy herself. Sandra just trying to stir up mess.

    Just like she did some months back when Ms Tina was talking about taking Solange to therapy and giving her extra attention when Beyonce was starting to get a name for herself when they were kids and the spotlight was beginning to shine on her. The way Sandra omitted key things from the original article you would have thought Ms Tina was a monster for trying to help her kids deal with the coming changes.

  • Brooklyn23

    Im lost don't you have to have tickets to be there? So how was it their tickets were given to women that (I would think would have their own) have their own tickets?

  • none yubiz

    It don't even gotta be a privilege.If they WITNESS you get any damn thing over THEM..it's gonna be a problem!

  • GrapeCrush


  • bella28498 .

    That’s privilege. White people think they are suppose to be first with everything. No matter how big or small they want to cash in on their privilege.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

  • Alextra Ballard

    Speaking of Windy everytime I look at her so-call "sober house" I am flabbegasted...I guess it's not the outside that counts but wut goes on in the inside what actually matta. Chiiile I was wonderin how can one kick a cocaine habit inside when it looks like a crack den on the outside. Ijs

  • Alextra Ballard

    I betchu she one of them old entitled white woman. Folks just owe her. Ion care how early she got up,how many modes of transportation she had to take,that still doesn't mean she was guaranteed entrance tew the show. I bet she was not the only one who didn't git in that particular day.
