Wendy Williams is has been relatively quiet as of late when it comes to responding to rumors of husband Kevin Hunter’s infidelities, but the talk show host recently made some time to set the record straight.
When “DeDe in the Morning” host DeDe McGuire asked Williams if things were OK in her union, Williams swiftly pointed out that Hunter was just outside the door of the recording studio.
“No relationship is perfect, but I can tell you this: I’m glad the boy is gone,” Williams says of her marriage now that her son is at college. “Because it’s got to be hard to be the son of DeDe McGuire or whomever in the media. So I want him to develop his own identity.”
Perhaps Williams indicated that with Kevin Hunter Jr. out of the home, she’ll be able to focus more on her marriage without having to manage her son’s identity outside of his parents.
Williams has been plagued by rumors that her spouse has cheated on her for years, with the first affair occurring not long after their son was born in 2000. In November, Hunter was spotted out and about with massage therapist Sharina Hudson, with whom the Daily Mail reported he had been cheating with for a decade.
Just a couple of months earlier, Williams maintained on her show, “I stand by my guy,” and flashed her huge wedding ring as proof. And the former radio host has spoken out about her husband’s infidelity before.
“If you told me when I was 25 years old or 30 years old that I would stay around for a cheater, I would have been like you are lying,” she told Vlad TV in 2013. “I’ve got way too much to offer a man to stick around for him cheating on me. At that particular time, I had my career in radio, I was making a great salary, I had vacation property of my very own and the world was my oyster, so I definitely thought I wasn’t staying around for some cheating. But I did and I don’t regret it.”
