Wendy Williams and husband Kevin Hunter may be separating after all. Following last week’s bombshell reports claiming that Hunter’s alleged mistress of nearly a decade, Sharina Hudson, had reportedly given birth to his child, Page Six reports that Williams and Hunter are “carefully looking at what a separation could entail” for them.
The couple has been married for 22 years, and their relationship goes far beyond their marriage and son, Kevin Jr., 18: The two are deep in business together as partners in Wendy Williams Productions and co-founders of The Hunter Foundation, which makes a potential s-plit that much more complicated. Hunter is also Williams’ manager.
“There is a discussion about what happens now,” a source told Page Six. “Everyone is asking, ‘How can they possibly stay together?’ Wendy still loves Kevin, but her health is at stake.”
Williams has been living in a sober home on-and-off since coming back from her talk show’s lengthy hiatus earlier this year, and she was reportedly hospi-talized after she relapsed last week after finding out about her husband’s alleged mistress’ baby. Insiders claim that it was Hunter who sent his wife to the sober-living facility.
“For some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house,” Williams told her viewers through tears on March 19. “When you see me come to work glammed up, right after the show I go across the street, I do my Pilates. I told you — two hours a day or [so], to take care of my body.”
Reports of infidelity have dogged Williams and Hunter’s marriage for years, and ET reports that the talk show host finally took action last year, which is when she found out that Hunter’s alleged mistress was carrying his child.
“The pregnancy was a shock,” a source told the outlet, while Williams’ longtime friend Paul Porter called their relationship and Hunter’s transgressions “painful.”
“She went over to the house to see if it was true, and she found out it was true,” Porter said of the house that Hunter reportedly bought for Hudson near their family home in New Jersey. “That’s part of the pain. She’s been seeing this for almost two years. It’s been happening her whole marriage. It’s a painful situation.”
Porter added that their marriage is “destined to end,” though the Page Six source insisted that such an ending will not come easy for the longtime couple.
“They are so tangled up together in business, so they are carefully looking at what a separation could entail,” the source explained. “It will be difficult.”
