On Monday, Wendy Williams made her highly anticipated return to “The Wendy Williams Show,” where she talked about her marriage and health issues.
During the episode, Williams addressed her relationship with husband Kevin Hunter Sr., who was recently the subject of cheating rumors. She said, “I want to shout out to my husband. I’m still wearing my ring. Believe me you, when you’ve been with somebody for 28 years, married for 25 years… we know each other. He’s my best friend, he’s my lover… I know what you’ve been seeing, but hunty, let me show you who I fell in love with and who he fell in love with.”
Though she stressed that she is “still very much in love" with Kevin, she admitted while gesturing to her ring, “Marriages have ebbs and flows. Marriage isn’t easy. And don’t ask me about mine until you see this gone. And it ain’t going anywhere, not in this lifetime.”
In terms of health, Wendy is “doing better now.” She shared, “I’m at home and I’m taking my thyroid meds and I’m meditating… I’m going to the gym seven days a week for two hours a day. Believe me you, I don’t know how this outfit is reading on TV, but Mother has not gained a pound.”
As for her extended break, Williams said, “We were supposed to only be off for two weeks for Christmas vacation... I started to feel thyroid issues. They’re still adjusting my meds. I’m the kind of patient, if I cough, I’m thinking, 'I’m dying…' I can’t even tell you how many doctors I have. They push me in there, I get the MRIs and then I get the CT scans… You know, I’m 54, and, not for nothing, even though you feel 25, honey, you know…”
"I’m happy to tell you that I am doing swell," she continued. "And then, you know, it’s not a big thing for Kevin and [her son] Kevin to come with me for doctor's appointments… So we were spending time as a family, the Hunters… and I just wanted to take some time for myself."
She finished with, "You know I am my own best friend.”
