How Is Wendy Williams Getting Over Her Divorce With Kevin Hunter?

There is no denying that Wendy Williams has had a rough couple of months. Not only has the daytime talk show host had to battle her sobriety, but she has also had to file for divorce from her husband of over 20 years.

The divorce wasn’t really a surprise to anyone (except for him). Her husband, Kevin Hunter, has been suspected of having an affair for a few years now. However, it had recently been confirmed that not only was he having an affair on his wife for at least the last 10 years with the same woman, but his mistress had just given birth to a baby girl.

The news of his affair not only caused their marriage to end but it also has made her make some big career choices as well. Being that Kevin was the executive producer of the Wendy Williams Show, the show’s production team has also had to go through some changes. So, how is Wendy getting over her divorce with Kevin? Here is what we know.

One of the first things that Wendy did after filing for divorce from her husband of 22 years was to fire him as her manager and her show’s producer. It didn’t take her long to find a new executive producer and manager. According to Page Six, Bernie Young will replace Hunter as Wendy’s new manager and executive producer. 

Wendy, Young, and some other staff members from the show were spotted at an upscale restaurant. A source had told Page Six that Wendy looked to be in good spirits as she was getting to know her new manager. “She looked great,” the source said. “Even though she was suffering from a cold. They all looked like they were in a great mood.”

When it comes to her career, Wendy has seemed to have no trouble moving on from her husband. In fact, she has already removed his name from the show’s credits.

Although the news that Wendy was firing her husband from the show came as no surprise to anyone, judging from his public apology to Wendy, it may have come as a bit of a surprise to him. After he had admitted to being unfaithful to his wife, People had posted a statement in which he said: “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. 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.”

How is Wendy getting through her divorce?

Kevin may want to be a part of his wife’s life, but she has made it more than clear that she doesn’t need him around. Although this divorce is probably very difficult for Wendy, a source had told US Weekly that while Wendy still has a long road ahead before she can completely heal from this heartache, she is spending time with friends, family, and her son, Kevin Jr., to help her get over this rough time in her life.

“Wendy is not looking back,” a source told US Weekly“Her friends and family think that the sky’s the limit now that Kevin’s gone. She still has some healing to do, but she has taken several steps in the right direction. She is strong and resilient.”

It would be hard for anyone to have to learn about the level of betrayal that Wendy has had to deal with from her husband. However, between her loving family and her strong personality, we have no doubt that Wendy will be able to come out of this rough patch in her life as a stronger person with her head held high.
