Despite allegedly trying to control Wendy Williams’ every move, some sources say Kevin Hunter is the one who wanted a divorce. “[Hunter] has wanted to separate so that they would be free to live their own lives,” a source told Us Weekly. “Wendy has begged Kevin to stay with her. It’s been a very long, sad, vicious cycle.” In fact, some insiders claim Hunter actually joked about being served divorce papers.
That may explain why, despite so many headlines about Hunter’s alleged cheating and mistreatment of the hostess with the mostess, Williams had insisted she would never leave her husband. On her March 4, 2019 comeback episode, Williams pointed to her ring on the air and said, “Marriages are not easy — and don’t ask me about mine until you see this gone. It ain’t going anywhere, not in this lifetime. He is my best friend, my lover, he’s all this and he’s all that. I know what you’ve been saying and I know what the streets have been talking about.”
