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.

Damita Haddon and Deitrick Haddon were married for 15 years before splitting under suscipicion of infidelity“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.”

My, my, my the rocks being thrown on this forum is sad. Scrutinize your life just as you are doing theirs. I'm sure its not any cleaner. And if you are lucky enough to happen to be the next Junior Jesus who has NEVER sinned, which I HIGHLY doubt, then continue to judge. Humble yourselves enough to know that these Christians are humans just like the rest of us. They are dealing with issues as we are. Pray for them instead of badgering them. I dont agree with their behavior either, but who am I to chastise them. Be like Christ instead of the enemy.

God save his church. Marriage has lost its essence. No more growing old together with because two adults refused to solve their differences. Dietrick, i would cease to be a member of your church, dat is if i happened to be, i'm not judging you but wat makes you think you wouldn't have problems with d new angel?! i hope he even reads this

Well!! Well!! We have finally proven that we are God, and that man can not sin. We need to stop judging the next man, they are human. We need to love each other, and then try not to be so human. We as Godly creatures must love each other, as the way that God have love each of us. Deitrick Haddon, confessed to the world that he was wrong an that he's not a prefect man, he will or have been convicted by God. If God can forgive him, who are we to condemn. Stop an take a look at yourself, try to make sure your relationship with God is in order. You can only go before him for your sins. Now you are saying that God is not doing his job, where's your faith that God is going to do what he said he would do.

The Word of The Lord says in John 4:12 "That the time is coming, and it now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Lord in spirit and in truth. For the Father is looking for such to worship Him. " Those of us who meditate in our Bible know that the spirit wars against the flesh. These preachers are worshipping the Father in the flesh. False prophets are everywhere in my country Ghana and they don't hide their hypocrisy anymore. Let those of us Christians who are good at judging bear in mind that this world belongs to He Who sits on the Throne of Grace but satan rules. He offered it to Christ once. The children of The Most High are just passing through. Paul says in Romans 8: 18 that " For I consider that the sufferings of this present times are not worthy to be compared with the Glory which shall be revealed in us" . We have a Divine promise to look up to. I think that the mansions in heaven are ready, but the saints are not! Pray for the perishing and let your light shine so all the world can see how Great our God is. AMEN!

I don't blame you Deitrick... The minute your ex wife committed adultery she broke your marriage vows.

Only when you are faced with difficult situations we act differently to the accustomary, divorcing process is one of the most difficult experiences in life, we are not to judge him, or justify his errors but, hurt makes people respond emotionally imbalanced, understand the situation at hand, sin is sin, but when u are in the spotlight the media gratified and enlargement people personal lives, why didnt they highlight him when he was doing Awesome stuff, look at the 99 things he did right, not the 1 time he made a mistake. Deitrick is people too.

After watching Deitrick's movie;"Blessed and Cursed", I must say, I was moved to the point of rededicating my life to God in tears. Shockingly, what I see here is totally disappointing. We all pray for God's grace, as such, I expected him admitting to the same sin his wife ,before the eyes of God, was equally guilty of. Living in sin to write off another sin never solves anything. He should know better. I'm still going to be praying for him though.

Everyone make mistakes, no one on this earth is perfect .When you point a finger at someone make sure your life is in order.GOD forgives all.

July 8, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTracheal

Yeah it was kinda crazy seeing this. I mean yeah people aren't perfect and we all definitely have our issues. Even as a christian, i mean its probably even worse cause we know the truth and still have our struggles but these preachers are kinda condoning "as long as Jesus gets mentioned out there". But living a life of following Christ is not just about putting his name out there, say a little prayer and that's it, No! It's about the truth and the power of Jesus Christ and his resurrection. Its about the gospel and the power of it, to set people free from bondage, from the lies of the devil and from the desires of their own heart that will lead them the wrong way.

These preachers are talking about collaborating with Lady Gaga and how Kanye is a musical genius so its ok if he does the yeezus stuff he does, but in the bible it says we're in this world but not of it. We are here but we're called to be set apart, to stand out and anything other than that is compromising. We all have our struggles and Deitrick has his as well and thats fine but we're not called to stay in that place of compromise , we need to come up higher and really seek God and live our lives for Him. Live according to His will and purpose. It's hard and lonely at times but you can do all things with Christ who strengthens you.

I hope that God will open their eyes and i really hope that these men dont get sucked into what this world has to offer because its all fine and dandy now but in the end every knee will bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. There's no gray area with Jesus, its black and white, right or wrong, sinful or righteous. Don't get me wrong though, I dont believe following Christ is all about rules so if you sin you're a heathen and you're going to burn in hell, lol. No it's about having a relationship with God, i mean if you dont repent from your sins then the consequence is hell cause the bible says it plain as day and in life theres consequences to everything (example if you drink to much, theres a chance you can mess up ur liver. If you eat too much, you'll become overweight and theres a chance for health problems. There's a consequence/ reaction to everything we do in life) but God is also merciful and he sets up certain rules not to be legalistic but for your benefit. (Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial.) God doesnt tell you not to do things because He says so, no He sets up those rules and commandments because He knows.whats best for our lives and wants us to have the best for our lives. Sometimes things happen that cant be explained, but God is sovereign and knows all things even when we dont understand whats happening. God has called us to be set apart and I hope these preachers will be transformed by the truth because they see the word, they read the word, they preach the word but I can see that it has not truly transformed their lives.

I also agree with someone who wrote on here that people misuse and take out of context "dont judge anyone". Yes, we're not to judge people but we have to tell them the truth according to the bible. We have to continue to love them no matter what they do but we dont have to agree with their actions or lifestyle choices. To love Jesus Christ is also to love people, Jesus Christ loved people and preached, did miracles and died for us because He loved us, if we are called to be like Him then we are called to love people and if we know the truth, why would keep it only to ourselves or compromise it if it could save people's lives?

Anyway, I don't know if anyone will read this but if so God bless you :) and remember God sent his only begotten son to die for us, so that Whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 God loves you!
