Wendy Williams, Eric B

*Wendy Williams opened up on her show Thursday about her past romance with hip-hop icon Eric B (of Eric B and Rakim fame), who was recently arrested on a 17-year-old warrant.

During the “Hot Topics” segment of her show, Williams, 55, recalled kicking it with Eric during her radio days in NYC, telling her audience, “So, I never really knew Ra back in the day, I knew Eric B, intimately.”

She went on to note that their tumultuous relationship will be featured in her upcoming Lifetime movie, Page Six reports.

“A couple of very severe things happened to me while I was involved with Eric B., life lessons and you’ll see it because the movie’s a teachable moment. While it’s gonna be very dramatic, it’s a teachable moment.”

She also teased him for getting locked up during his birthday weekend.

“Good morning Eric. Ra, your boy celebrated his 56th birthday in jail. Don’t say ‘Awe.’ Not when I explain to you what he did to me. But you have to wait for the movie. I have a movie coming out. I need the ratings. Still kinda cute there.”

We previously reported… the TV host is teaming with super-producer Will Packer (“Girls Trip) for the Lifetime project, which will chronicle her early days in radio up to her recent split from her husband and business partner Kevin Hunter.

The biopic is about “her scrappy upstart days in urban radio to the success of her own syndicated talk show,” a release said, via Page Six.

According to TMZ, the project will cover the highs and lows of her life — including sex, cocaine, fat-shaming and allegedly being date raped by a high-profile celebrity.
