Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter have worked through a number of problems already, but lately, it’s getting too out of hand for the latter, reports Us Weekly. According to the outlet, the 54-year-old and Hunter are getting close to officially calling off their marriage after 21 years.
The insider who spoke with the publication claims Hunter was the one who wanted to divorce so they could “live free” and do their own thing. However, the host of her eponymous TV show has allegedly been fighting back against her husband’s intention to call it quits.
The source explained that The Wendy Williams Show host actually “begged” for Kevin to stay. “It’s been a very long, sad, vicious cycle,” the insider remarked. The news comes just days after Wendy was put into the hospital due to alcohol relapse.
Reported by The Daily Mail, the television host was apparently found intoxicated by a member of her staff on the 25th of March. She was taken to a hospital nearby and was given fluids containing vitamins and minerals.
And the following day, Page Six claims Hunter’s alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, had an illegitimate child with him. On the 28th of March, Williams said to TMZ that she was “feeling wonderful” despite the ongoing drama.
Speaking with her audience on the 19th of March, Wendy said that working out plays a key role in her mental, physical, and psychological health. As most know, Wendy has struggled with substance abuse before, notably, cocaine abuse.
Williams claimed she never had to go to rehab; one day she just stopped and doesn’t know how she managed without the help of God on her shoulder. Interestingly, this follows her two-month hiatus back in January because of health problems and other issues facilitated by Graves’ disease.
“She’s a work in progress,” the source explained. At this point, fans of Wendy can only hope for the best during this difficult time. If Wendy had to take time off again, some fans have suggested for Nick Cannon to take her place for the second time.
