Because on Wednesday’s episode of “The Wendy Williams Show” the 54-year-old announced that she’s shutting down The Hunter Foundation, a nonprofit that helps people with drug addiction and provides grants for rehabilitation as well as drug education.
She started the foundation in 2014 with Hunter and said although it’s ending, she “remains committed to helping others in the struggles of life” and would be getting involved with “other foundations.”
Citing an insider, gossip site the Blast reports that after Hunter heard about the foundation ending he expressed concern about the call center staff people losing their jobs. Hunter also noted that some of the workers are former addicts themselves, the site reported.
Williams has been open about struggling with her own addiction, and in March revealed that she had been living in a sober facility after having a relapse. Soon afterward, Williams filed for divorce from Hunter, whom she’s been married to for 22 years.
Williams also started to cry when she told the story.
“You know the music in the restaurant was playing and we were doing it to the music,” she explained. “Everybody was so embarrassed, in a fun way. You know what I mean?”
“Kev looks at me like, ‘Look at mommy have fun.’ Appropriate fun. I’m like, ‘Look at my boy over there. Looking at his mom have fun,'” added Williams as she began to cry. “I’m not complaining or anything like that. I’m just saying. It’s just, like, nice.”
