The ending of a relationship is always tough, but it’s even more so when you’ve been together most of your life. Talk show host Wendy Williams is calling it quits with her husband, but she’s not letting it get her down, at least not publicly. While the ex seems to be struggling, Williams radiates happiness with her new life. Fans are excited to see her doing so well, and returning to TV soon. Check out the fabulous way Williams is handling her situation.
Life came crashing down around Wendy Williams
Earlier this year, things didn’t look so great for Williams. She took time away from her show to focus on her personal life, which meant checking into a sober living center for help with her drug addiction. But while she was there, her husband of 24 years, Kevin Hunter, spent time with his mistress. Rumors claim he’s been seeing the mistress for over a decade, and she recently gave birth to Hunter’s baby.
“This is a crazy situation,” a source said, as reported by Pop Culture. “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. Everyone who loves Wendy is heartbroken and furious. Her fans are furious that she lied to them about her health and about what she has been going through.”
Understandably, this wasn’t something their marriage was able to survive, and they ended up filing for divorce. A source told US Weekly: “Wendy’s not looking back. Her friends and family think the sky’s the limit now that Kevin’s gone. She still has healing to do, but she’s taken several major steps in the right direction. She’s strong and resilient.”
Kevin Hunter depended on Wendy Williams financially
Now that they’re separated, Hunter is reportedly worried about his finances. During the marriage, he had full access to Williams’ accounts, but that’s no longer the case now that they’re separated. “She’s cut him off,” a source told InTouch, “and means that Kevin is finally hurting for money. He’s terrified he’s going to end up with nothing.”
Because of these worries, Hunter may be trying to get money any way he can. He was recently seen at a jewelry store, carrying inside a velvet bag. Those on the scene thought it looked like he was trying to sell the jewelry for extra money.
Hunter was fired as an executive producer on The Wendy Williams Show in April, only adding to his financial woes.
Wendy Williams lives her best life after divorce
Williams isn’t letting the dissolution of her marriage get her down. She posted a behind the scenes video of a recent photoshoot on Instagram, where fans see her looking beautiful and acting fabulously. The wind blows through her hair, and her cheerful expression breaks into a laugh, as the cameras flash around her. Williams truly glows, and it’s clear she’s living her best life.
Fans noticed Williams’ amazing energy, and they weren’t afraid to express their happiness for her. One follower said: “People…she’s taking it to another level!!!” Another fan said: “Your new life has given you such a beautiful glow and genuine happiness from within. Keep killing it!”
The end of the video announces Williams’ show will return with new episodes July 8, and fans expressed their excitement at her return to TV. One wrote: “I have to wait another week. You’re hurting my morning routine, Miss Wendy. Plus I miss you.” Another wrote: “Though I’ve enjoyed seeing her out n about, enjoying life, I need Aunt Wendy back already. TV isn’t the same without her.”
Williams is providing a great example for women all over on how to be strong in difficult circumstances. She’s even moved on with a younger man. Williams confirmed on her show that she’s dating a doctor. “I’m not on the market anymore…” she said. “I’m not in love, but there’s someone I’m crazy about!” Here’s to moving forward!
