Wendy Williams was so starstruck when she met Halle Berry that she went to drastic measures to preserve the memory of the encounter.

The TV presenter has claimed that Halle flicked her on the boob after she was interviewed on The Wendy Williams show in 2012.

And Wendy was so honoured that she claims she didn't wash her breast until two weeks after their meeting.

She had been nervous to interview the Catwoman star as before filming, Halle's publicist had handed over a "list of questions" Wendy was not allowed to ask, she claimed.

Wendy Don Lemon for Interview magazine: "I was so scared to meet her. When she walked into the room, everyone stopped.

"She looked directly at me and smiled, and I smiled back. Suddenly, I wasn’t scared.

"But suddenly, I felt like, 'I'm going to ask her anything I want.' And she said, 'Wendy, girl, you can ask me whatever.' And I did."

At the time of her appearance on the show, Halle was engaged to Olivier Martinez, who is now her ex-husband.

During the interview she spoke openly about her personal life and motherhood, admitting that she was glad she'd waited until the age of 41 to have a baby.

The actress' daughter Nahla is now 13-year-old, and Halle is also mum to a seven-year-old son called Maceo.

Halle told Wendy: "I'm a much better mother at 46, or 41 when I had her, than if I were like, 21 or 25.

"At that age, I was just a little baby just trying to figure it out, trying to figure out who I was, let alone having the responsibility of trying to help another little soul develop and grow.

"I'm so glad I waited."

Wendy said she was so pleased with how well the interview had gone and how open Halle had been with her.

She claimed that Halle ended up "flicking" Wendy's boob on the way out.

The TV star added: "By the end of the conversation, she flicked my boob and winked at me. I didn't wash that boob for two weeks."

Last month Wendy waded into the debate about Meghan Markle's relationship with her dad.

Wendy said on her talk show: "I'm team Thomas on this particular thing… He's an old man… He's apparently not well… He goes in and out of swollen ankles… He doesn't look spry at 76…

"He's got two grandchildren that he's never met. Meghan does not have to accept him all the way in her family. But maybe a little hideout one day in Malibu. And invite him over with no press involved.

"And maybe have him play with the grandchildren and have some scones, and then send him on his way. I just feel like at his age, and all he's been through in life.

"How bout maybe he just wants to hug his daughter and see his grandchildren?"
