Wendy Williams is reportedly battling anxiety and insomnia in the wake of her husband’s cheating scandal as well as her recent fainting spell on-air.
According to a report by Hollywood Life, Williams simply isn’t dealing with the stresses in her life, and sources close to her are worried about the affect this could have on her health.
A source said that Williams “has been under so much stress recently, and it’s really taking a toll on her health. She’s had really bad problems sleeping, she’s pretty much totally lost her appetite, and she’s battling anxiety. Wendy could really do with a break, but she refuses to take any time off from filming [her talk show]. It’s like Wendy is just brushing everything under the table and pretending that nothing’s wrong.”
The source said that Williams was anxious about the rumors of her husband cheating but that she was reluctant to look into it too hard, even as things continue to look more dire for the cheating rumors.
Kevin Hunter was recently spotted with Sharina Hudson, the woman he has allegedly been having an affair with for ten years. Hunter was seen to pick up Hudson, who was wearing a diamond ring on her left hand.
Wendy Williams’ husband still with his mistress 😘 who knew that MISTRESS life can last like this 🤔? It’s been 10-years now… . . Wendy Williams’ husband is still seeing his younger mistress as the 46-year-old was spotted with the massage therapist on Monday, even after his TV host wife defended him and said she was ‘standing by her guy’. #KevinHunter was seen picking up Sharina Hudson, 32, from an office building in Manhattan after a workout in the city before driving back to New Jersey together on Monday afternoon. The two have been engaged in a 10-year long affair with Hunter moving the younger woman into a $765,000 home in New Jersey and Hudson wearing a large diamond ring on her wedding ring finger. Williams, 53, declared that she was ‘standing by her guy’ soon after DailyMailTV revealed the affair in September, but it is unclear if the TV host knows that her husband of 20 years is still seeing Sharina Hudson.
A source told the Daily Mail that staff were perplexed by Williams’ insistence on staying.
“What nobody can understand is why Wendy doesn’t boot him to the curb. She doesn’t need him. He does nothing for her but drag her down. This show would be a much better place if he never came back to the studio,” the source said. “I mean he bought this woman a house, his name is on her letterbox, when is the humiliation going to be enough for Wendy to call time on this marriage?”
But even as Hunter and Hudson are seen around each other more and more and the rumors continue to grow, the Hollywood Life source said that Williams is actively ignoring the problem.
“[Wendy] still hasn’t properly addressed the cheating rumors — she’s just carrying on as if everything is normal. However, it’s not, and although she’s putting on a brave face, she knows deep down that things aren’t right. If she confronts Kevin though, and it turns out that he has been cheating on her, then she has so much to lose — he’s not just her husband and the father of her son, he’s also her business partner,” the source explained.
“So, Wendy’s just burying her head in the sand, and acting like everything is just great, while all the time she’s being eaten up inside.”
