And, when it comes to the matters about his wife, Wendell is a little different on social media. He first mentioned a lady named Sheryl Underwood, a co-host of the show The Talk on CBS, and Sheryl Underwood Radio as his wife on his Twitter account (2016).
Although Wendell mentions her as his wife, Sheryl, on the other hand, calls him as her work husband. So, it is very confusing whether they are joking around or they have a relationship.
Well, it might be because Wendell often calls his co-actresses as his wife before working on any new projects. This behavior of mentioning his co-actresses as his wife is very confusing for his fans and the media.
