Did Wendy Williams Shade Ex With Not-so-Subtle Change to Show’s Producer Credit?

The 11th season of “The Wendy Williams Show” premiered on Monday, which kicked off the first full season since Wendy Williams filed for divorce from her ex Kevin Hunter.

She also broke off her business relationship with Hunter after the split since he was an executive producer on the show. And she seemed to send a message to him and her fans by changing the credits at the end of Monday’s episode.

As things were winding up and the credits appeared on screen, the words “Just Wendy” were under executive producer with her ex’s name completely removed.

His name was taken off last season after the split as well, but the “Just Wendy” is a new update. And if one were putting together theories, it could be said the change is Williams’ way of showing she’s taken full control of her life and business affairs.

The 55-year-old has been talking about her split from Hunter in various interviews of late, and she recently confirmed that he welcomed a daughter with his longtime mistress Sharina Hudson.

She also revealed that he hasn’t signed divorce papers yet, but when he does they’ll be friends. But a Page Six source says that Williams is promising to be friends with Hunter just so he’ll move forward with the divorce.

“Wendy is playing nice so that he can sign the divorce papers and she can move on with her new single life,” the insider claimed.

And that single life has included moving into a new Manhattan apartment, going out on dates and hitting the town with people like Blac Chyna.

It also seems that Williams has gotten a leg up on her sobriety struggles since she entered a sober house earlier this year.

But it doesn’t appear that going to the facility had to do with a relapse, as some reports have indicated, it was more of a preventative measure for the talk show host.

“I’d done my detective work. I knew what was about to happen, and I was like, ‘Let me go someplace where you’re not allowed to have the whole bottle of wine,’” Williams told The New York Times Magazine last month.

“When you see your husband’s mistress with a burgeoning belly and you’re a blabbermouth on TV with a successful show, you know what’s about to happen. I needed to go someplace quiet.”
