Wendy Williams’ Husband Kevin Hunter Breaks His Silence
UPDATE: There are conflicting reports on whether Kevin has been fired from "The Wendy Williams Show."
According to DailyMail.com, Hunter has been fired as an executive producer on "The Wendy Williams Show." She has also fired him as her manager. A source revealed that he has been given two days to remove his belongings from their New Jersey home.
The insider said, "Kevin had expected to stay on at the show and as Wendy's manager. He ran the show with an iron fist, he was the guy who kept the sharks at bay. But when Wendy saw the photos of him and Sharina last week... That's what tipped her over the edge, she was like, 'he's gotta go'. She now wants him out of her life completely, she's given him 48 hours to clear his office and clear his belongings out of the house."
TMZ reports that he hasn't been booted from the show, but it's only a matter of time.
Days after Wendy Williams filed for divorce, her husband Kevin Hunter is speaking out.
In a statement, Hunter admitted his mistakes in their marriage. He said, “28 years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams. At the time, I didn't realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world. I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally. I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans.”
“I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs,” Hunter went on. “No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine. I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you."
The couple had been the subject of split rumors, and Hunter was accused of cheating on Wendy with Sharina Hudson, who reportedly gave birth to his child last month.
In her 2004 memoir "Wendy's Got Heat," Williams revealed that Kevin had cheated on her after their son Kevin was born.
A few years ago, she opened up to VladTV about how they worked through it, saying, “It has made our marriage — and I know this is cliché, but it's true — it's made our marriage stronger. No, I'm not back to the girl I was before him, because when you get stung like that, you never go back to who you were — only a fool does. But I love him, and he loves me, and we addressed it head-on.”
