Wendy Williams has received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, after what she described as a “very tough” year.

“The elephant in the room is that I’ve been having a very, very tough year. But slowly but surely, I’m climbing out of the pit,” the 55-year-old talk show host tearfully said in her speech, in reference to her decision to divorce Kevin Hunter, her husband of 21 years.

“And this is one of those monumental days, that, you say, ‘if you don’t believe in yourself, who’s going to believe in you?’

“Sometimes life is a very, very lonely path. You just have to make some hard decisions.”

Wendy Williams attended the ceremony with her supportive 19-year-old son Kevin Jr, who she raved about throughout the day…

“He’s always encouraged me to keep it going,” she reportedly told People.

“And never asks me to pull back from anything that I say or that I wear or anything like that. He’s always been very encouraging.

“So now, it’s just the two of us against the world.”

And Wendy Williams didn’t forget her loyal fan base either…

“My fans! Listen, I slipped and called you fans only because I’m in Hollywood and I think I’ve gone Hollywood, but you’re not fans,” she added.

“That’s a stupid word. I’ve always called you Wendy Watchers. When you listened on the radio, I told you I love you for listening and now I tell you I love you for watching.

“You are Wendy Watchers and without you, none of this would be going on.”
