Wendy Williams divorce: Show host to leave marriage after 22 years

Wendy Williams divorce: Show host to leave marriage after 22 years

Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter are putting on a united front as they navigate their divorce.

In divorce documents filed by Wendy Williams with the New Jersey Superior Court on April 10, the talk show host revealed that there was "no hope of reconciliation" with her husband Kevin Hunter. However, by 2019, reports surfaced that Kevin had allegedly been unfaithful to Wendy, and that he fathered a child with his mistress Sharina Hudson.

Despite the cheating rumors, many fans believed Wendy would stay with her husband, especially after she addressed the status of her relationship in early March. "I'm still wearing my ring".

Williams was characteristically open with her audience, whom she lovingly refers to as her co-hosts, when she returned from her hiatus last month.

"She would hide in the bathroom and tell me to knock on the door when he left the office so she wouldn't have to see him", an intern told the newspaper.

In 2008, Hunter was accused of sexually harassing a staffer on his wife's radio show, The Wendy Williams Experience.

In 2017, Williams told PEOPLE that Hunter had been a pillar of strength as she grappled with her diagnosis. Though she received tons of support for her candid admission, the news that came next was disheartening: After checking herself out of the sober house, Williams apparently had a relapse with her alcohol addiction, and was rushed to the hospital. But her emotional on-air announcement intensified the scrutiny around Hunter, an executive producer on the show and Williams's longtime manager, amid tabloid reports that he had a baby with another woman. Infidelity rumors have long dogged Hunter, prompting Williams to periodically defend their union on her nationally syndicated show. "I want you to know more of the story". Another source revealed to Page Six that Williams served Hunter the official papers on Thursday morning. "They went to counseling but Kevin [Hunter] just kept lying to her". She appeared to be battling health problems again the following year when she her speech was slurred during an interview on her show.
