Wendy Williams Addresses Divorce, For 1st Time: I Don’t Have A Boyfriend, But I Date A lot!
Wendy Williams is finally letting fans know how she’s doin’! The daytime talk show host is known for spilling celebrity tea during her “Hot Topics” segment, but is known to stay mum about her own personal life, until now. Today, she opened up about her rocky divorce from husband/manager of 25 years – Kevin Hunter.
She noted her divorce proceedings have been ‘pleasant,’ and ironically, asks for privacy while also debunking rumors of being seen with her ex at a recent LGBTQ event. Wendy says Kevin’s doppelganger was her bodyguard:
“I’m working on my divorce pleasantly right now. When I say ‘pleasantly,’ I mean- I ask of you [to] it’s hard to say ‘give privacy,’ because I don’t give privacy when I’m doing the rest of the stories. So, you do what you want! You always do. You know, just to catch you up to speed – that is Webb. He’s part of my security detail team. I am a single woman…You don’t just throw away 25 years lock, stock, and barrel. I gotta tell you something right now as a mature, single- almost single woman. You all can say what you want, and you’re entitled to. You know, I certainly say what I want behind closed doors. But I will tell you this: we do have our son, and he’s away in college. And he’s home right now if you’re wondering why I’m hanging out so much. He’s home for college break. He sees me, he sees his dad.”
Wendy says she is ‘reclaiming her life’ with her new bachelorette pad and burgeoning love life:
“I go out a lot ’cause I am a good time girl. I like to have fun. I’m, right now, a young and pretty New York City girl. I have the ultimate bachelorette pad – high, over the top everything. I have a really, really good view, and I’m really, really reclaiming my life. And I don’t have a boyfriend, but I must admit, I’m rediscovering my love of men! And, you know, transparency: I do date. And I date pretty often!”
Wendy Williams’ soon-to-be-ex-husband Kevin Hunter reportedly welcomed a baby girl with his mistress of over a decade. Many believe this to be what sparked Wendy’s relapse, resulting in a stint at a sober living house. She filed for divorce this past April. Meanwhile, Kevin is reportedly seeking spousal support.
