Will Marriage And Babies Stunt A Woman's Career? Wendy Williams Says 'Yes'
Talk show host Wendy Williams is no stranger to controversy.
From shading Kelly Rowland's son's name to taking shots at Chris Brown, the 50-year-old is a hot topic herself. But this time, the former New York’s HOT 103.9. radio show host is talking all things domestic; from marriage and parenthood. Her latest advice, from an interview with Forbes Lifestyle, included the host giving women advice on marriage, encouraging them to hold off from tying the knot to focus on your career:
"Every woman has a different view and there are some women who have an opinion and are scared to voice it. But I’m not afraid to voice mine—don’t throw tomatoes! I do feel it is difficult for men to accept really successful career women. Whether it be that we out-earn them or on the marquee, our names are brighter than their own."
The mother of one whose been married for 17 years went on to say:
"I also feel like marriage and babies stunt a woman’s growth career-wise and people don’t understand once you get married and once you have kids, you cannot do all the things that you used to do while maintaining this important precious thing you’ve built as a family. So my suggestion to women, always, is to use your entire twenties working your behind off in your career and get some ground footing, then think about meeting that guy. Even if you’ve met him at twenty-seven, don’t get engaged and don’t move to where he lives. This is about you and your career because we are the ones that lose in marriage. Not men!”
