Wanda Sykes’ wife Alex is a tall drink of blonde beauty


I knew that Wanda Sykes was a lesbian – I’ve known that since she came out publicly in 2008, during the Proposition 8 rallies. I also knew that Wanda had a longterm partner/girlfriend/wife, who she’s been with for many years. I also knew that Wanda and her partner had twins last year – little Lucas and Olivia. What I did not know was that Wanda’s wife Alex is a gorgeous, tall drink of blonde water. Get it, Wanda. Day-um.

Anyway, I think this might be the first time Wanda and Alex walked the red carpet together – they went to the Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday. Wanda was nominated for several awards, some of which haven’t been announced yet, so Wanda will probably be bringing Alex to the real Emmys next Sunday too. Hopefully, Alex will pull out yet another fantastic white pantsuit, because her suit is rocking my world. She’s stunning!

By the way, does anyone else think that Alex looks like conservative pundit Laura Ingraham? Right?

    Shows what being funny will get you…. Wanda Sykes is halarious!

  2. Katya32 says:

    holy! What a gorgeous couple! I watched an HBO special Wanda did (last year maybe?) and she spoke so affectionately and respectfully about her wife – I’d love to hear more men talking about their partners that way in public. They look really happy.

  3. jzhz says:

    Um, I think Wanda looks pretty rockin’ in these photos, too.

  4. gretchen says:

    i love wanda tho she’d be cracking me up all day and everyday, and people just need time to eat…LOL

  5. bite me says:

    Laura Ingraham, no Alex looks nothing like that bitch… what a great looking couple

  6. TQB says:

    DAYUM is right. She’s smokin’. They’re both pretty hot – Look at wanda rockin’ the mini!

  7. Isa says:

    Wow she is beautiful! I love her suit!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen Wanda in a dress! I didn’t know she had such nice legs!!! Woohooo! What a wonderful couple!

  8. truthSF says:

    Is Wanda’s wife of mixed race? She looks both white and black, weird.

    But she is pretty, and so is Wanda.

  9. Katie says:

    They might be my new favorite couple. I remember on a recent HBO special part of Wanda’s routine was about her new twins and her wife and she talked about worrying that if something happened to her, her black babies (or they might be half black, I’m not sure) would be stuck with a white woman who wouldn’t know what to do with their hair. It was pretty funny.

  10. original kate says:

    her wife looks like kanye’s GF amber whatever. kind of weird & fake.

  11. Ron says:

    Wanda looks great! And her partner is lovely.

  12. Sarah says:

    Wow, go Wanda! They look so happy together. I love it :)

  13. TQB says:

    This reminds me, I was going to suggest Hot Gal Mondays. Anyone? Anyone?

  14. RHONYC says:

    she looks like nicole murphy’s better-looking sister. wanda looks like the lesbian love child of pam grier & tina turner :-)

  15. Catherine says:

    Both ladies are gorgeous!

  16. xxodettexx says:

    yeah i agree with everyone that says they are both lovely here… i am glad for them

  17. buckley says:


    Yes for Hot Gal Monday!

  18. Tiffany says:

    #13…I agree, no need to discriminate. Or maybe Thursday, so we can close out the week with Hotness.

  19. Tia C says:

    Wanda is a lucky woman for sure!

  20. Chelly says:

    @ TruthSF:

    I believe Wanda has said before that her wife is French.

  21. GatsbyGal says:

    They make one cool-looking couple!

  22. SammyHammy says:

    Wow. What in the world is a beautiful woman like that doing with an annoying, shrill, unfunny person like Sykes? I don’t care that they’re gay; I just think Sykes is probably one of the most UNdesirable people in Hollywood. I see her with someone like Rosie O’Donnell, not this pretty woman.

    And yes, the resemblance to Laura Ingraham is quite striking.

  23. Boat says:

    I think Wanda’s wife looks like an older version of Kristin Cavallari.

  24. Carrie says:

    Wanda has said that her wife, Alex, is french.
    I think their babies are mixed race, although they might be white.

    She’s a lovely woman, and Wanda looks really good.

  25. lena says:

    In her last standup, Wanda said her kids are white because she didn’t want to die and leave the kids with a white woman who wouldn’t know how to do their hair…she was joking of course, but yeah the kids are white and her wife is white/french

  26. Rougelatete says:

    Definite “YES” to hot gals day!

  27. Sefa says:

    Holy wow, they are BOTH bringing it on that red carpet, amirite?

  28. Keyanna says:

    She look like a skinny Steven Cojocaru to me.

  29. canadianchick says:

    Day-um is right, Wanda’s got some sexy stems and her partner is pretty love her suit. This is a great start to Hot Girl Mondays.

  30. Beanie says:

    They look fantastic together..very happy and both look hot!!

  31. maria says:

    She is gorgeous and Wanda has some legs. They also look in love and are enjoying eachother’s company. What more could you ask for? I love the way she has her hair up in the big loose bun.

  32. nanster says:

    Love Wanda Sykes! Glad she’s happy!

  33. Sally says:

    Gorgeous couple! And also amen to hot girl day :D

  34. Emily says:

    Yes to Hot Gal Mondays! Or anyday, really.

    Also, I had no idea Wanda had such great legs. She should rock the mini more often. Her wife’s hot, too. Does anyone know what the wife does for a living?

  35. mm says:

    She looks like a hot version of Martina Navratilova to me . . .

    Anyhoo congrats to them!

  36. martina navratilova? says:

    Doesn’t she resemble Martina? That was my first glance instinct of who she looked like.

  37. Sumodo1 says:

    AND Wanda’s wife is French!

  38. Tutti says:

    She looks like a younger version of Martina Navratilova.
    Get real— both are Fug.

  39. toto says:

    a woman and her wife? in what world we are living?even in languge logic it will not work.mercy on us God and don’t make us one of them.

  40. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    What are we to infer from that comment?

    Elegant-looking lady. Sykes had some good moments on The New Adventures of Old Christine.

  41. wanda = annoying says:

    I’m sorry but before I even knew who Wanda was… I saw her in Evan Almighty and thought, she was annoying… every line was as if she was going for a big punchline that wasn’t funny. I dunno, maybe just the director was bad. Nothing against her… just my opinion. She’s annoying.

  42. Emily says:

    @Jo Mama Besser, I think we’re supposed to agree that two women marrying is killing “languge logic”? Although toto seems to be gunning for grammar and punctuation logic, too.

  43. Mary says:

    I see people still are using the term partner. They are married – you can use the title wife.

  44. I never knew anyone else shared my views on this subject. Thank you for confirming my beliefs and making this content so clear and easy to read. I hope you have plans on writing more.

    ,WOW, I think they are both beautiful, and I wish them and their babies the best, God Bless them
