Wendy Williams is reportedly divorcing her longtime husband, Kevin Hunter, after he allegedly impregnated his mistress, Ebony reports.
A source close to the talk show host told lovebscott.com that Hunter’s mistress is ” allegedly pregnant and still living just down the street from their house. Word around the show is that they’re going to divorce sometime now that little Kevin has gone college.”
According to the gossip blog, sources close to Williams are worried that her husband’s alleged affair is stressing her out.
The broadcast personality is reportedly “wobbly all the tie and has been cussing out Whoopi Goldberg behind-the-scenes— without Whoopi being anywhere near.”
The alleged peculiar behavior has sparked rumors that Williams is self-medicating to deal with her hurt.
“[People close to Wendy] suspect she might be self-medicating (either with opioids or prescription pills),” the source continued. “[The staff] is routinely having to adjust to her health issues — i.e. not walking out for the beginning of the show, zoning out during segments, etc. They’re really embarrassed about the whole situation.”
Williams’ health has been a topic of discussion for the past year. She addressed the struggles of living with Graves’ disease and has changed the set up of her eponymous show to allow her to sit to accommodate her health.
Earlier this week, she revealed that she fractured her shoulder.
Despite the increasing reports of an affair, Williams had not commented on her rumored divorce or if her husband is expecting a child with someone else. She has addressed her health and how it has affected her performance on the show.
“Whatever today’s performance was with the legendary The Lox, who said such nice things, I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care. I promise you a better Wendy in 2019,” she wrote.

To My Wendy Watchers, I sincerely apologize if you feel that today's show was less than stellar. I’m on your TV screens every day wanting to spread laughter, entertainment and cheer. As I reported earlier in the week, I have a hairline fracture on my upper arm, which hurts like hell. I’ve never broken a bone or experienced a fracture in my life. In the key place where the fracture is, and trying to scurry around and do too much, I am now paying the price. I've never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week. I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgement of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%. Not to mention everyone is aware at this point about my thyroid condition (don’t cry for me Argentina). For all my fellow thyroid sufferers, you know what the deal is. And for those that don’t: I encourage you to please read up. Needless to say, whatever today's performance was with the legendary The Lox, who said such nice things, I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care. I promise you a better Wendy in 2019. I will get some much needed rest and healing over these next couple of weeks. (Yes I am definitely juicing over the next couple of weeks). Sorry again. I love you all. Happy Holidays!
