It’s not every day that you hear about a 50-year-old virgin, but one such woman self-identified as exactly that during a recent airing of The Wendy Williams Show.
“I am a 50-year-old virgin and I’m proud of it,” said Evette, shocking the host and her entire studio audience. “I grew up in a very strict household,” explained the Hopkinsville, Kentucky resident with a smile. “I get all the time that I’m crazy to wait until I’m married to have sex.”
In today’s society, where premarital sex is viewed as par for the course, lots of people see Evette as a certifiable nut job for her stance. Keeping the command of 1 Corinthians 6:18 to “flee fornication,” is believed to be unrealistic. But not for Evette.
She has upheld her faith values, but not without harsh criticism. Thus, she wanted to know, “How do I get the haters off my back?”
Wendy Williams, 53, appeared genuinely caught off guard. Not quite knowing how to respond, the gossip queen fired off a few questions: Are you dating now? Are you in love? Have you ever fooled around?
Evette told Wendy, she isn’t dating; she was in love before, but not now; and she has never done anything beyond kissing.
“To God be the glory,” the abstinent woman added.
“I’m not judging because I appreciate the ‘Christianness’ of it all,” Wendy told her. But as a girlfriend, I’m judging.”
