Wendy Williams’ Estranged Husband Officially Leaves Her Show: Report

By Tiffany Meier

Wendy Williams’ estranged husband, Kevin Hunter, is no longer working for “The Wendy Williams Show,” according to multiple reports.

“Keven Hunter is no longer an Executive Producer on the ‘Wendy Williams Show,'” a spokesperson told Page Six. The show is produced by Debmar-Mercury.

“Debmar-Mercury wishes him well in his future endeavors,” said the spokesperson.

While there were no issues with Hunter and his job duties, TMZ learned that his presence on set was causing Wendy Williams a lot of stress due to issues in their relationship. As previously reported, Wendy Williams filed for divorce after finding out he allegedly fathered a child with his mistress.

“Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time,” a personal representative for Williams said in a statement, obtained by Page Six. “Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together.”

Hunter had been part of her show since 2008, and the two were married for almost 22 years, according to the news outlet.

The talk show host filed for divorce after a series of events, some of which directly affected her show.

Wendy Williams was found drunk after her husband’s alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, gave birth on March 25, according to the New York Post. The news emerged about a week after Williams admitted on her talk show that she was living in a sobriety house to deal with substance abuse issues.

“This is a crazy situation, Wendy is in a halfway house fighting for her sobriety, while her husband is at the side of his mistress who is giving birth to a baby. Sharina went into labor on Sunday [and] is believed to have given birth late on Sunday or in the early hours of Monday,” a source told Page Six.

Williams’s husband, Kevin Hunter, is believed to be the father of a child with 33-year-old massage therapist Sharina Hudson.

“Sharina gave birth to the baby at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philly. Apparently, they chose this location because they were worried that if she gave birth in New York, it would be leaked to the press,” a source told Page Six.

In the midst of this affair, Williams missed hosting many episodes of her show, starting at the end of last year until she came back in the first part of this year.

Williams never confirmed the cheating rumors about her husband, but recently she had been seen without her wedding ring on some occasions.

In addition to cheating rumors, there were also rumors of abuse. An intern at Williams’ former radio show described a scenario that occurred after fights between Hunter and Williams at her office.

“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 New York Post.

The intern also described what would happen when Williams were in a private room together at work.
“You’d hear slaps or some type of tussling going on.”

Before Hunter was officially removed from the show, Wendy Williams also had extra security on hand while working with him to protect her from his alleged abusive behavior, according to Page Six.
