Wendy Williams paid tribute to her friend and “wigologist”, Antwon Jackson, during her eighth season premiere. Jackson died suddenly at the age of 44 during the summer from an undisclosed cause. Williams was overcome with emotion as she shared the connection she and Jackson had.

Via NJ:
The North Carolina native and Emmy-winning hairstylist, who was responsible for Williams’ trademark wigs, had been with the talk show host for several years, was a frequent guest on her after-show on YouTube, and spent time at Williams’ New Jersey home and frequently traveled with her. He was engaged to Dontay Savoy, another hairstylist who appeared on WE’s reality show “L.A. Hair.” Jackson leaves behind a 25-year-old son, DeAntwon Jackson.

 

Rest in heaven, Antwon Jackson.
