Wendy Williams will not be watching any Owen Wilson films anytime soon, especially the ones where he plays a doting dad. The talk show host, 55, unleashed her wrath on the actor, 50, after his ex-girlfriend, Varunie Vongsvirates, 35, alleged that he’s never met their 1-year-old daughter, Lyla, despite supporting the baby financially. HollywoodLife has reached out to a representative for Owen Wilson.
“Owen Wilson, you are no good!”, Wendy said on her November 15 show. “I don’t know how we can see some of his kids movies ever again… You’ve got nerve to be playing a dad when you’re not even a dad in real life to your newest baby. He’s got a child he’s never met!”
Wendy — who, in April, filed for divorce from her husband of nearly 22 years, Kevin Hunter Sr. after he fathered a child with his mistress, Sharina Hudson — continued: “Well, here’s what I would suggest that she does — stay pretty, go on with your life and take his money. Also, if I were her, I wouldn’t even want him in my life or the child’s life. The child will never remember,” she said. “And, for the little girl, there’s lots of women that grow up with no father and they turn out fine. There’s lots of women who raise kids fine with no problem. But, to be fighting him about this, it’s pointless.”
The host went on to add one more piece of advice to the actor’s ex.
“This should be the last we hear from you about this, because the more you badmouth him about his movies, the more the box office will crash and that will cut into your child support. So just, let it go!”, she suggested.
Wendy concluded with a few more jabs at Owen. “It’s terrible though. Like, how are you going to get somebody pregnant and then walk away? It’s bad enough when you do it in the private sector, but he’s an entertainer, he plays dads in movies,” she said, adding, “You are no good!”
Owen’s ex-girlfriend, Varunie Vongsvirates claimed he is an absentee father during an interview with DailyMail on November 11.
“Owen has never met Lyla. Never,” she said while the outlet caught up with her in a Los Angeles parking lot. “He helps financially but it’s never been about that,” she admitted, urging, “Lyla needs a father.”
The brunette, who reportedly dated Owen for five years before they split, also took a jab at him before she got into her car. “It’s ironic how he [Owen] keeps getting these father roles, he’s playing a father in his new movie, and he’s never even met his own daughter,” she said.
