“Kevin cheated on me while I was pregnant with my son and I found out and I could have divorced him then,” she told Billy Bush. “But I said no, I have a son…but I didn’t want him to leave me by myself and I knew Billy that it was not til death do us part…Kevin was a serial cheater – Kevin had different mistresses depending on the part of his life. This last one was the one he had the longest term relationship with.”

Despite such, Williams has no regrets. As to why someone as successful as she is would stay with a serial cheater, Williams told People Magazine in a statement that she did so for the sake of her family.

“The bigger the talk show got and the more I would look into my son’s eyes and see the things that he needed regarding having his father present in the home, and his mother and the family foundation, the more I decided to give of myself,” she said.
