Wendy Williams Divorce Drama: What Does Her Filing Reveal?
As previously reported, it is all over for Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter.
In the wake of this announcement, we have a handful of updates about the talk show host finally splitting from her terrible husband, starting with details from her divorce filing…
In court papers obtained from a New Jersey Court house by Radar Online, Williams completed her documents and filed her complaint for divorce from Hunter on Wednesday, April 10.
She cited irreconcilable differences as the basis for the couple’s split.
“There exists irreconcilable differences between the parties, which have caused the breakdown of the marriage for a period of six (6) months and which make it appear that the marriage should be dissolved as there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation,” the paper read, adding:
This would appear to be the understatement of the century.
According to numerous outlets, Hunter has been cheating on Williams with a woman named Sharina Hudson for several years.
Williams acknowledged these rumors on occasion, never truly shooting them down on her progra, but simply confirming to viewers that she was committed to her marriage for the rest of time.
So… what happened?
Hudson allegedly got pregnant by Hunter… Williams suffered a relapse and ended up in a sober living facility… Hudson then gave birth to Hunter’s baby… and Williams them got so drunk in response that she was rushed to the hospital.
So, basically, a lot happened.
Too much for Williams to remain in the marriage.
Williams is demanding the marriage be dissolved, that the court equitably divide the parties’ marital property and that the appropriate amount of child support be established, based on these documents.
Williams married Hunter on November 30, 1999 in a civil ceremony in New Jersey.
They share an 18-year old son named Kevin.
After news of this divorce went viral, fans wondered what Williams would say about the decision on air.
Would she mention it at all?
Yes, in very broad terms.
“Honey, I have got a situation going on. We’ve got to get this show done quickly,” Williams said during Friday’s Wendy Williams Show, which was taped on Thursday, April 11.
“My ankles and my feet are swelling as we speak. … This here is embarrassing.”
While she did open up about her body part “situation,” Williams did not bring up the divorce news specifically.
But it’s out there, of course.
And Williams has been receiving some support from other talk show hosts in the wake of the break-up.
“I think if everything that’s alleged is true, it’s about damn time,” Sheryl Underwood declared yesterday’s installment of The Talk.
“We wish her the best,” Sara Gilbert added on this same show.
The View also touched on Wendy’s drama, with Meghan McCain telling viewers and her co-panelists:
“This is a woman who looks like she’s in a lot of pain. I wish her nothing but love and compassion.
“Being vulnerable on TV — when she was talking about living in a halfway house, I actually cried when I watched it. … She’s in a lot of pain. She’s a real talent. I wish her nothing but compassion and love, and I hope she comes back to her show better and stronger than ever.
“Screw that guy. She doesn’t need him!”
Joy Behar mentioned how Hunter also cheated on Williams in 2001, after she gave birth to their son, while Abby Huntsman delivered a message to Williams that reads as follows:
“We are rooting for you. We hope you come back and you feel good.”
