Wendy Williams calls out ex-husband over his ‘baby situation’
Wendy Williams filed for divorce from Kevin Hunter last year after he fathered a child with another woman
Wendy Williams appeared to aim some words toward her former husband, Kevin Hunter, on social media regarding him fathering a child after he was unfaithful.
The TV show host took to her Instagram on Thursday night, posting a photo of herself and an unnamed baby girl with the caption, “Look @ me with my baby girl. I’m not the only Hunter with a baby situation.”
According to The Daily Mail, the child Williams was posing with was her “friend Raquel’s friend’s baby,” and that the parents are “Wendy Watchers.”
Williams’ comments appeared to be related Hunter’s decade long extra-marital affair with massage therapist Sharina Hudson. Williams filed for divorce in April 2019 when it was discovered that the affair resulted in a child.
The former radio host turned TV star spoke of her feelings about her breakup and Hunter’s unfaithful behavior during a 2019 interview with The New York Times.
“Kevin had a major indiscretion that he will have to deal with for the rest of his life,” Williams, 56, stated in the interview. “An indiscretion that I will not deal with.”
Hunter, 48, and Williams were married in 1997, and have one son, Kevin Jr., who was born in 2000.
“He will always be my family, because we have a 19-year-old son, and we were together for 25 years and married for 21,” Williams tearfully continued. “But there was no vacillating. I’m out.”
Williams premiered The Wendy Williams Show in 2008 with Hunter serving as an executive producer. According to Variety, Hunter was removed as executive producer last April.
News of the child and the divorce announcement all came while Williams was still living in a sober house in an effort to battle an undisclosed addition in the Spring of 2019. Prior to that, she put the show on a three-month hiatus, although she disclosed it was chiefly due to Graves’ disease.
Williams’ show is slated to return on September 21. While she initially was filming her eponymous talk show from her home when the coronavirus pandemic halted production in March, her Graves’ disease caused her to take another hiatus in June.
