Wendy Williams GRILLS Deitrick Haddon About Hooking Up With Second Wife: ‘You Were Still Married’ [VIDEO]
If you can’t take the heat, stay off the set of FOX’s “The Wendy Williams Show,” where the host plays no games. On Wednesday, Nov. 27, the ever outspoken Wendy Williams, 49, went in on the cast of Oxygen’s controversial reality show, “Preachers Of L.A.,” which just wrapped its first season.
Sans Bishop Clarence McClendon and Pastor Wayne Chaney, the preachers sat in the hot seat for a Q&A that got particularly tense for Deitrick Haddon. The 40-year-old chart-topping gospel recording artist was forced to flesh out the details of how and when he met his second wife, Dominique Haddon.
“Now, Deitrick is married, but his wife got pregnant during the time that he was divorcing his ex-wife,” Williams told the live studio audience before hitting him with a litany of tough questions about the when’s and where’s of his newest relationship.
“I actually went through a hard time where I really just left church, left preaching, singing gospel music and I was just in a space where I didn’t want to do it anymore,” Haddon explained. “But I met my beautiful wife and she was like my angel.”
The sentimental story did not move Williams. She quickly interjected, “Yeah, but you met her out in LA where you were married and set up [in a] home with your ex-wife [who] was some place other than LA.”
“Absolutely,” Haddon agreed.
Williams continued, “So you all filed for separation with the intent on getting a divorce—”
Interrupting her, Haddon clarified, “No, we were divorcing.”
“Oh, you were already divorced?” Williams asked, somewhat confused.
“No, [in the] divorce process,” he said.
“You were in the process of divorce. That’s what I mean. You were still married,” Williams plainly laid it out on the table.
“Yes,” Haddon reluctantly admitted the truth, while squirming, shrugging and looking uncomfortable.
“Sir, you were still married,” Williams stated matter-of-factly, refusing to let him off the hook, but then threw the cornered minister a bone.
“But you didn’t cheat on your wife. You just happened to have met somebody. Then she got pregnant. Now you’re married to that woman.”
The new Mrs. Haddon, who is now expecting the couple’s second child, carried on an intimate relationship with Haddon allegedly after he discovered his ex-wife, Damita Haddon, had cheated on him with fellow gospel artist and former friend, Isaac Carree.
Whatever the case, Haddon’s second marriage began in adultery—something that cannot be denied.
Nevertheless, the newlyweds are moving forward and attempting to put the sordid details behind them, though airing their relationship before millions of people weekly has shined a new spotlight on both their past and present.
Haddon added, “People try to put two and two together [and say] yeah, he left his wife for a younger woman in LA and had a baby. No, that wasn’t the case.”
