Wendy Williams & her shady husband are ‘exploring what a separation would look like’

Wendy Williams spotted returning to the sober house after candid admission

Over the past few weeks, the Wendy Williams story went from “interesting gossip” to “devastatingly sad cautionary tale.” Wendy has been married to her husband Kevin Hunter for 22 years. Her finances are all wrapped up in his finances. Her image is wrapped up in being his wife too – it’s like she has the image of herself as someone above reproach, someone who can gossip about other people because her life is “perfect.” In March, we learned that Wendy was living in a sober house for unspecified reasons. Then we learned that Kevin apparently (and allegedly) has a mistress, and the mistress just gave birth last week. That sent Wendy into a tailspin, she started drinking again and she needed to be hospitalized. Her show is back on hiatus this week, after largely being on hiatus for months. So, maybe this is good news?

Wendy Williams and her husband, Kevin Hunter, are laying the groundwork for a separation after a turbulent 22 years of marriage, Page Six has learned. The daytime chat show queen has been married to Hunter since November 1997, a union dogged by rumors of Hunter’s infidelity in recent years. Still, Williams was left devastated following Page Six’s revelations that Hunter’s alleged mistress of as many as 10 years, Sharina Hudson, gave birth earlier this week. It has not been confirmed Hunter is the father, but he is widely speculated to be.

Now sources say that Williams and Hunter are exploring what a separation would look like, even though he remains her long-time manager. They are both partners in Wendy Williams Productions, the company that produces her popular daytime show.

A source told us: “There is a discussion about what happens now — everyone is asking ‘How can they possibly stay together?’ Wendy still loves Kevin, but her health is at stake. They are so tangled up together in business, so they are carefully looking at what a separation could entail. It will be difficult.” Williams and Hunter own a multimillion-dollar home in Livingston, NJ, and are the parents of 18-year-old son, Kevin Jr.

I find myself desperately wanting them to just end their marriage. I’m not concerned about the financial aspect or the future of her show, I just want Wendy to get the hell away from a man who seems like he’s been emotionally abusing her and manipulating her for years. It IS about her health. That being said, I know it won’t be easy for her. If anything, I think if they do separate formally or informally, Wendy would likely fall apart even more. It’s just sad. It’s a terrible situation.

    What separation would look like??!!?? Gurl, he had a whole relationship which resulted with a baby on you, you are already separated. Call your lawyer and your friendly neighbourhood forensic accountant and begin the process. Wendy deserves better than this.

  2. Lisa says:

    It is a step in the right direction. I hope Wendy can untangle herself from him completely and thrive.

    Dear Wendy…

    Separation from that POS would look like it has looked in your life for the past ten years….

    Him living his life on the fruits of your labor…

    The ONLY difference is….

    You can opt on enjoying some OTHER fruit that ain’t his putrid fruit…which you ain’t enjoyed in YEARS anyway….

    He’s been unfaithful for more than 10 years. Wendy has talked about overhearing him ending an affair over the phone (a long time ago).

  5. Nev says:

    I love you Wendy!!!!

  6. BlueSky says:

    I really feel awful for her although I’ve never been a fan. Her health is suffering because of this relationship but I also imagine it’s difficult to get away from a man who’s been gaslighting you for over 20 years.

  7. Aims says:

    What I find intresting is, you have these bright, successful and ambitious women being connected to these shitty men. This is and sick relationship and I believe it’s taking it’s toll on Wendy. Maybe she was in denial or maybe she was so busy to take a second look. Either way, it’s not worth your physical, emotional wellbeing.

  8. Peg says:

    It’s no wonder why Wendy was lashing out at other celebrities, people that have no control in their messy life, like to tell others how to live theirs.

  9. Helen says:

    imagine having to give over half of your wealth and then paying monthy alimony to that pos kelvin. but it’s either that or lose it all anyway due to declining health. it’s painful as a motherf*.

    It really sucks seeing a woman who needs to get out of a horrible relationship, but doesn’t want to. I have seen this so many times with women close to me. It’s frustrating because their man will always come first no matter how much damage he’s doing to them. Before their own health, before their own happiness, before their own kids even. They are unwilling or unable to leave these men and they continue to take advantage of them. And all we can do is watch from afar because you have tried your best to help but it’s not up to you. When these relationships are over, they usually end pretty badly. So this isn’t even rock bottom for Wendy. It has to get worse before it gets better. It’s the nature of toxic relationships.

    I don’t think her(celebrity) image is wrapped up in his…he is the man riding her coat tails and her fame by business bonds.

    Wendy is financing his 2nd family.

    Why would he leave her for this new family when he quite literally has it all?

  12. Tiffany says:

    Kevin is 18 now???? Wow, I thought he was still in his early teens.

    This reminds me of a friend hometown friend. A long time ago ( I, a college freshman and he a junior) called and said he was having a going away party before going abroad for a year. So we are there and his parents and Mom showed us around, told us where the food and booze was and said have fun. So, about a hour in, Mom was gone, like nowhere to be found and Dad was still out there and chilling. So I was talking to my friend towards the end of the night and he told me his parents told him they were separating. They did not get into it much but his mom said that she was done. My friend said that when she said that, she looked relaxed for the first time in a long time. His parents were together for about 30 years at that point.

    Bounce Wendy. Just bounce. It is okay. I mean, for those who have been following her have seen the deteriorating of her health with our own eyes for years.

    Whatever secrets he knows and holds over you, go to the press and give your version before he does and let the chips fall where they may.
    Leave and get your health together.
    Stop working to take care of him. He’s supporting his lifestyle on your back..
