Strange Things Everyone Ignores About Wendy Williams’ Marriage

Talk show host Wendy Williams’ marriage to manager Kevin Hunter has been plagued by rumors
for years.
While the “Hot Topics” hostess insists everything is fine at home, there are some strange things
about their union that makes us question that so-called “wedded bliss.”
Cheating history
In her autobiography, Wendy’s Got the Heat, Williams claimed Hunter messed around during
their marriage.
She revealed to Vlad TV that just after giving birth to her son in 2000, she found out Hunter
was cheating on her, after overhearing:
“…a late-night telephone call and some clandestine whispering.”
Williams later forgave Hunter for his indiscretion:
“I know this is cliche, but it has made my marriage stronger.”
Still, she admitted that it did change their dynamic, saying:
“I’m not back to the girl I was before him because when you get stung like that, you
never go back to who you were.”
Control issues
As her manager slash husband, Hunter is rumored to keep Williams on a tight leash, which allegedly
causes tension behind the scenes at her talk show.
A source told the New York Daily News in July 2013, “Kevin makes all the decisions and has
become more and more controlling as the show has become a success.”
The source also claimed Hunter made Williams change her cell number in order to be less
available to the show’s staff, and hired her a new driver who reports to him directly.
When Williams made her Broadway debut in Chicago in July 2013, the source says Hunter sorted
through all the gifts and cards from fans and only gave Williams a small portion of
them, adding,
“He thinks she is being bothered and thinks he’s looking out for her, but Wendy loves
her fans.”

Workplace harassment
Talent Booker and publicist Nicole Spence, who worked for Williams and Hunter on The
Wendy Williams Experience sued Williams and Hunter for sexual harassment in 2008.
Spence claimed Hunter propositioned her via late-night phone calls, and when she didn’t
give in to his demands, he threatened her.
TMZ reported that Spence claimed Williams encouraged Spence to give in to Hunter, even
offering to take her shopping to dress more provocatively.
Spence also accused Hunter of physically abusing Williams at work, alleging in her complaint,
“In one instance, Mr. Hunter stormed into the studio, demanded that other employees
leave and openly physically abused Ms. Williams, pinning her against the wall with his hand
around her neck, choking her while repeatedly pounding his fist into the wall directly by
her head.”
The Daily Mail reported that the $5 million lawsuits were later settled out of court for
an undisclosed sum.
The mistress
In September 2017, the Daily Mail dropped the bombshell that Hunter had been stepping
out on Williams for more than a year with a massage therapist, Sharina Hudson—and that
Hunter had even bought Hudson a $765,000 home not far from the $2 million property he shares
with Williams in New Jersey.
A source told the Daily Mail,
“Kevin is with Sharina three or four times a week, often staying over…”
“They go to the gym together, they go out to restaurants together as if they’re a normal
“But then he goes home to Wendy as if everything is normal there, too.
He’s living a double life.”
And according to an insider,
“Kevin loves Sharina just as much as he loves his wife so it’s difficult for him to let
go of either of them.”
A blind eye
The Daily Mail reported that Williams never questions her husband about his whereabouts
because Hunter wears the pants.
A source claimed,
“Kevin runs the show in their marriage and Wendy never questions him on where he’s been.”
After the Daily Mail story broke, Williams didn’t exactly shy away from the allegations
on her show, admitting during a segment in September 2017,
“It’s weird doing ‘Hot Topics’ and BEING a hot topic.”
“You can believe what you want—but….”
“I stand by my guy.”
But things may be different off-camera.
A source also told Hollywood Life,
“Wendy is putting on a very brave face for the cameras, but behind the scenes she is
“Kevin swears blind that he wasn’t romantically involved with Sharina, but he’s cheated on
her before, so Wendy can’t help thinking there’s some truth to the reports.”
If by this point, you’re wondering whether Williams and Hunter have some sort of open
a marriage-type arrangement, that’s reportedly not the case.
Williams told Vlad TV in 2013,
“I would never have an open relationship.
I think that’s a recipe for disaster.”
It seems like this marriage may be a “Hot Topic” that could last a lifetime.
