Wendy Williams’ husband claims they’re fine & he bought her a $40K watch

Wendy Williams spotted returning to the sober house after candid admission

The past week of Wendy Williams-gossip has not been good, but a lot was happening. First, we learned that Wendy’s husband Kevin Hunter had likely fathered a child with his longterm mistress. The mistress gave birth last week, and after that news broke, Wendy went on a terrible bender and she was eventually found and hospitalized. Then we heard that Wendy and Kevin are finally looking at the possibility of separating. Us Weekly claimed a few days ago that Kevin is the one who wants out but that Wendy “begged” Kevin to stay and “it’s been a very long, sad, vicious cycle.” Which I believe completely. Unfortunately, I also believe this:

Wendy Williams is about to add another (massive) piece of jewelry to her collection! The 54-year-old star’s husband, Kevin Hunter, gifted his wife of almost 22 years with a watch that “cost $40,000.” Despite rumors Williams’ husband is allegedly cheating on her, Hunter tells E! News they’re “doing fine.”

“Wendy and the family are doing fine,” he expresses. “We are focused on her health and sobriety, and that is it.”

As for the details on the eye-catching watch the TV producer bought for his wife? It’s a customized jewelry piece that’s adorned with diamonds, and it features a rectangular watch face with thick links. If anything, it totally screams Wendy.

“Kevin came in on Thursday and got Wendy a customized diamond encrusted Frank Muller watch,” a source familiar with the transaction at Flawless Jewelry exclusively tells E! News. “The job cost $40,000. This is a customized piece…Kevin comes in and sees Eddie from Flawless for pretty much all of his jewelry needs,” the insider reveals.

“Kevin is a regular at the jewelry store,” according to our insider, who says “he’s been a customer there for years and years.” The source adds, “I don’t know if he picked up anything else while he was at the shop.”

A $40K watch could be one of two options: a push present for his mistress or an apology gift for Wendy. I don’t entirely believe that this watch was intended for Wendy, but I do know that Kevin intended for all of us to find out about it – E! News got this story as an exclusive, and so did the Daily Mail. Kevin runs his own PR shop, it seems. Anyway, I hope that a gift of a watch doesn’t change anything – Wendy needs to get out, period.

    If it is for Wendy, how much do you want to bet there’s a GPS in that watch? Gotta know if she’s seeing lawyers now doesn’t he?

  2. Harryg says:

    How is that watch going to help you, Wendy? Just divorce.

    I swear this man is Gas Lighting her with manipulation that is far beyond… I really wish there were people there to help her see this horrible and vicious cycle her husband is putting her through and her the h*** away from him.

      Yep…”We are focused on her health and sobriety.” Translation: this is all HER fault. Look what a great guy I am, buying my wife expensive jewelry. I’m sure he got a discount for this obvious ad placement for Flawless Jewelry, used Wendy’s money to pay for it, then gave it to his mistress as a push present. This guy is the absolute worst.

    That’s really nice of him to buy her a $40,000 watch with money he earned off of her

  5. Vexa says:

    Ugh I hate the way that E! story is framed – it’s so gross.

  6. STRIPE says:

    It’s also a major spon-con post for the jeweler/Kevin. Seems he killed a few birds with one stone.

  7. JanetFerber says:

    She does not look fine. I feel sorry for her.

  8. BlueSky says:

    I bet that watch was for his side piece. There’s no way he got that for her.

  9. VintageS says:

    This is so sad. It’s hard to believe in 2019 a woman would stick with a husband that so publicly humiliated her, but old records that “any man is better than no man” die hard. Hope she ditches him soon.

    I grew up watching Dad bring Mom expensive gifts from his out-of-towners. They were divorced by the time I graduated high school. Needless to say, these kinds of gifts are really for the drifter in the marriage. Not always. But an eyebrow should reach for the sky.

    Have you ever heard of Chronicle Speaks? She has a whole buncha info about Wendy’s husband. Apparently his real name is Kelvin Hunter. I think he is a dangerous character.

  12. JANAK says:

    A watch, why? So she can know exactly how long he was at his mistress’ house??
