One of the most beloved faces on television has some devastating news, and it’s something that people had been fearing for quite some time.
The host of The Wendy Williams Show, Wendy herself, has been wrapped up in marital turmoil for quite some time now. Rumors have been swirling for years that her husband, Kevin Hunter, was having an alleged affair with another woman.
Despite all the criticism she took from fans ridiculing her for staying with a dreadfully unfaithful man, she continued to fight for her marriage.
She and Kevin had been married since 1997 and share one child together, Kevin Hunter Jr. Inevitably, she knew that she wanted to keep her family together even if it was for him and for the vows she took so many years ago.
In 2017, sources leaked images of Kevin with his mistress proving rumors to be true. The woman in question was revealed as Sharina Hudson. In time, more sources revealed that Sharina was pregnant and many knew it had to be with Kevin’s love child.
Despite it all, Wendy continued to fight, even going as far as defending him on live television. “I’m still very much in love with my husband. Anybody who has been married for five minutes or 500 years, you know marriages have ebbs and flows.”
She finished by saying, “...And don’t ask me about mine until you see [my wedding ring] gone - it ain’t going anywhere, not in this lifetime.”
Little did she know that she’d be changing her mind in a matter of time. On April 11, 2019, it was officially confirmed that Wendy had officially filed for divorce. She regretfully ended their 22-year marriage after swarms of details concerning his cheating had gone too far.
Please keep everyone involved in the split in your prayers. Divorce is never easy, and this one certainly will take a great deal of time for her to process and grieve.
