Wendy Williams is getting her priorities straight when it comes to finding husband number two!
RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the talk show host has a long list of prerequisites for any potential lovers before she’ll even consider getting into another serious relationship.
“She is so scared of getting hurt and doesn’t want to ever go through that torture again, but she does need love and companionship,” an insider said, explaining Williams, 55, is now carefully following her rules while dating and looking for new love.
“He must be divorced, not separated — even though her divorce is ongoing,” said the source.
As Radar previously reported, Williams was devastated after news broke Kevin Hunter, her husband of 22 years, had fathered a daughter with his mistress.
But Williams is doing everything in her power to never go through a similar experience again.
Any potential mate “must take a lie-detector test to determine if he’s ever cheated before,” the source told Radar.
And the mother to 19-year-old Kevin Hunter Jr. is insistent on not wanting to raise any more children.
“He can have kids if they’re grown and have moved out,” noted the source, adding money is an important factor and the man she ends up with “must have a job and show proof of his financials” and “he better not mind her talking about him on her show, because she will.”
“It’s pretty crazy, but Wendy is sticking to her guns,” said the source of the shocking list of rules.
During a recent appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, Williams insisted she will take another turn down the aisle one day.
"I said, 'Mommy, I'm a wife; I'm not a girlfriend,'" Williams said. "'And I will get married again. And I will have a prenuptial agreement.’"
She also wants to maintain separate residences.
"We will not be living in the same house," she said on the show. "Oh, no, no, marriage under new circumstance, that's it. That freedom of turning that key or electing, 'All right, let's stay at your place tonight; let's stay at my place tonight.'"
