Tabitha Brown Gracefully Responds To Wendy Williams

Tabitha Brown has become popular for her contagious smile and personality. The CHI actress kept this same smile as she politely responded to critics of her retiring her husband from the LAPD.

Among her critics were Wendy Williams who was not a fan of her retiring her husband.

Essence reported that she mentioned Tabitha’s accomplishment as part of her Hot Topics on Thursday’s (July 1) episode of The Wendy Williams Show. After playing part of Tabitha’s video, she immediately shook her head in disapproval, bringing up her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter. The couple was married in 1997 and Williams filed for divorce in 2019 after he carried on a relationship with another woman whom he welcomed a child with during the marriage.

“I was married to one of those. ‘I make the money!’ and so on and so forth. ‘Go live your dreams! Open a business! Go, go, go!’ See how that turned out,” she said. “I predict that this marriage is going to be on real rocky ground in a moment. ‘Live your dream’… They may invest in stuff and lose the money. They invest in something else then the money gets swindled or stolen. Then they invest again and he comes home and throws his bag down. She’s like ‘What? What?’ And he’s like, ‘I can’t do this and this is your fault. You’re over here making your money and stuff and had me quit my job.’”

“No, you work!” Williams added. “Being a cop was a big part of his identity, he liked it but she came to him and said that.”

Instead of using negativity back, Brown took to IG to spread a message of love and motivation.

“Wendy the pain you must be in to feel this way, honey, I’m so sorry. But listen, let me tell you this. Twenty-three years I’ve been with my husband, broke for a very long time together. Struggled for a very long time together. Succeeded for the last couple of years together,” she said.

She went on to note that Chance took his job with the LAPD to help support her dream and provide for their family. As she mentioned in her initial video, they agreed that she would eventually take him out of the force when she made it so he could pursue his own dreams.

“I was his dog in the fight and he believed in me and we did it together for the last 15 years,” she said. “I did every year with him in the LAPD and he did every year with me with rejection and nos in this entertainment industry. However, God has blessed me…I’ve been praying on this for a very long time and it has now come to pass. That is the power of God. It’s also the power of allowing God to be first in your marriage. That’s how it remains successful, we keep Him first. He is first in our marriage. Not money, not business, not success, but God. He’s first.”
