Wendy Williams isn’t wasting any time getting her affairs in order professionally and has already found a replacement for her former manager (and estranged husband) Kevin Hunter. Williams has hired famous producer Bernie Young as her new manager.
According to Page Six, Young will not serve as an executive producer on Williams’ show, and there are no plans to hire a new one. Williams will continue to serve as Executive Producer solely.
Young is known for his previous work as a coordinating producer and executive producer on “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” from 1996 to 2002 and his work as co-executive producer on “Martha” from 2005 to 2012.
A source close to Wendy said Williams has thrown herself into her work, adding that “she’s taking over her empire.” The source told People magazine, “She was kept out of the loop a lot.
They continued, “Wendy’s an executive producer on the show as well, but she’s the talent. Kevin was the one doing a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff and being a go-between for her and the show.”
