Earlier this month, Wendy Williams returned to her namesake talk show after a two-month hiatus, sparked by a slew of health-related personal issues. In her first appearance of the New Year, Williams addressed her health, as well as the rumors of her husband’s infidelity.
“Don’t ask me about mine until you see this [ring] gone,” she said, slamming rumors that her husband, Kevin Hunter, impregnated his mistress. “It ain’t going anywhere – not in this lifetime.”
But now, it appears Williams was right. Apparently, “It ain’t going anywhere” because, according to Daily Mail, Hunter is using his relationship with Williams to support his 33-year-old mistress, Sharina Hudson.
According to the publication, the two have been dating for over a decade, and during that time, Hudson has given Hunter several ultimatums to leave his wife of 22 years. However, sources say, Hunter has declined to do so because Williams pays all the bills.
“Kevin is in love with Sharina, but he told her he can’t leave his wife, but the only reason he is still with Wendy is because he and Sharina can’t take care of themselves – they need her money,” a source said.
“She’s living in a very nice apartment in Manhattan he pays for, and he got her a studio in midtown for one of her many businesses that he supports,” the source continued. “He put her through school to be a massage therapist; he opened a kiosk for her at a mall in North Carolina where she’s from. He helped her set up a jewelry and clothing line online called VISH. But none of her businesses have been a success.”
Despite the double life Hunter has been living with Hudson, Williams has decided to stand by her man. However, according to the publication, she did hire a private detective and warned her husband: “Don’t you dare humiliate me.” To make matters worse, the entire ordeal has reportedly catapulted the host into an alcohol and pill-fueled depression, forcing her to live in a sober house for the time being.
“Every time he takes Wendy to Miami for the weekend, Sharina travels separately and stays at another hotel down the street,” the source continued, adding that the host is ‘brainwashed.’ “Wendy knows about Sharina but is willing to put up with it as long as there’s an understanding that there will be no baby and she doesn’t get humiliated.”
“He continues everything, he takes her phone, she has zero friends, she’s not in regular contact with her family. He controls every aspect of her life because he’s insecure,” the source said. “His only skill is spending her money, and the money trickles down to Sharina.”
However, when it comes to Williams’ feelings, most could care less.
“Wendy’s attitude is disgusting, so no one has sympathy for her,” the source said. “She started deteriorating on the show in plain view, but fed her fans this story about Graves disease, and now it comes out that it was alcohol and drugs all along.”
