Wendy Williams Says Marriage Counseling Wasn’t An Option With Estranged Husband, But Says ‘He’s Not A Bad Guy’
During an appearance on The View Thursday, Williams confirmed that she filed for divorce because of his infidelity. She said they were married for more than 20 years and together for more than 25 years, but Hunter having a love child with his alleged mistress was the last straw for the daytime talk show host.
“Infidelity is one thing, a full baby is a whole nother topic… A baby! I’m not changing pampers, I want to be pampered.”
She added that she was joking when co-host Joy Behar questioned why Williams would have to change any pampers at all. Williams also said she jokes, and
“…then we’ll cry. I’ve learned from my mother how to make lemons into lemonade in life. What am I supposed to do? Stay in the house and cry all day?”
She went on to say she still refuses, and will always refuse, to speak badly about Hunter publicly. And their son, Kevin Hunter, Jr. isn’t the only reason why.
“I save that for when I get back to my bachelorette pad. It’s not just about young Kevin. It’s about… Kevin’s not a bad man. You just can’t throw away 25 years and then start talking recklessly about the other person. Otherwise, what does that say about you? I chose him, and he chose me. People do change, and now it’s time to move on with my life.”
She added that marriage counseling wasn’t even an option.
“No. You do this? Get out!”
She also opened up about her former addiction to cocaine and while she said it was 25 years ago, she went to a sober house to avoid a relapse amid all the drama in her personal life. She added about her ex,
“Most of my girlfriends have said, ‘You should have left him a long time ago.’ But here’s the thing, I’m not a selfish mom. And I’m a very plotative individual. I will plot on you. And that’s why I’m going into season 11, and he’s changing pampers.”
She added that she refused to go live with a friend because she still had to consider their child. So she went to the sober house to remove herself from the situation but still take care of Kevin, Jr. who recently turned 19. She ended with
“Kevin will always be my family no matter what, and that’s that.”
