Wendy Williams hasn’t been having the best year so far. She found out that her husband of over twenty years had been cheating on her for half the marriage, getting his mistress pregnant last year. The talk show host fractured her shoulder during an alleged altercation with her husband, who has been gifting his girlfriend with tons of expensive gifts over the last few months. On top of all that, Wendy relapsed on alcohol, heading to a sober living facility for treatment. Now, she’s back on her show but she just can’t escape the shade. Wendy seems to be obsessed with everybody else’s drama and now that her own dirty laundry is out in the open, she would prefer to dig even deeper into other people’s lives. When she was interviewing Van Jones on her show, she decided to ask about his “soon-to-be-ex-wife” and the political commentator came back with the perfect response.

The controversial host of the show started speaking about the show that Van produces with his wife, noting that they’re getting a divorce. She noticed that he’s still wearing his ring, to which Jones replied: “You got something on your hand too so I ain’t talking about that.” Wendy was caught off-guard by the comments, rolling her eyes and reminding Van that he’s there to answer questions, not ask them.
The moment is genuinely pretty funny and you can tell that Wendy wasn’t upset by it at all. Van Jones is a regular guest on the show so he likely has a close relationship with Wendy. During his most recent appearance, he also spoke about Meek Mill being left off of TIME 100’s list of the most influential people, Kim Kardashian‘s journey to becoming a lawyer, and more.
