In a candid moment with an audience member, Wendy Williams admitted to feeling unsure about the path forward after filing for divorce from Kevin Hunter after 21 years of marriage.
An audience member asked Williams how she was faring during Friday morning’s show. “I’m not sure,” the talk show host said, according to Page Six.
On Wednesday, Williams, 54, hit Hunter, 46, with divorce papers, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The papers were reportedly served at the studio where Williams films her show.
The news comes one month after Hunter’s alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, gave birth to a daughter that is widely speculated to be Hunter’s, although he has neither confirmed nor denied he is the child’s father.
Williams is reportedly planning a move now that her marriage is over. The radio host may be relocating to New York from her longtime home in Livingston, New Jersey, TMZ reports. Since January, Williams has been receiving treatment at a sober living facility in Queens, following a relapse.
Sources say she plans to officially move to New York once her time at the sober house is up.
Williams married Hunter nearly 22 years ago and they have an 18-year-old son named Kevin, Jr. The couple had been plagued with rumors of Hunter’s infidelities over the years. The final straw appears to be the alleged baby with Hudson.
Page Six, which obtained the divorce filing, said Williams indicated that her marriage actually dissolved last year and that there was no chance she or Hunter could repair it. In the filing, Williams asks that the Court determine an “appropriate amount of child support” as well as “other further relief as the Court deems fair and equitable.”
On Friday’s show, outside of the question by the audience member, Williams didn’t address her divorce. Carol Durham, a guest of the show on Friday, told US Weekly that the atmosphere was energetic and upbeat. “The show taping was wonderful,” Durham reportedly told US Weekly. “I had a great time; it was like a party.”
