AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams has opened up about her failed marriage to Kevin Hunter which ends after 21 years. In a new interview with The New York Times Magazines, "The Wendy Williams Show" host confirmed rumored that Kevin, was said to be cheating on her for several years, welcomed a child with another woman earlier this year.
"Kevin had a major indiscretion that he will have to deal with for the rest of his life." the 55-year-old shared in the heartbreaking interview. "An indiscretion that I will not deal with. … I never thought that I would be in this position. I’m a very forgiving person, but there's one thing that I could never be a part of, and that one thing happened."
The host/author was later pressed about what she was referring by "one thing," before she went candid and said, "Kevin has a daughter." Wendy went on saying, "I was sitting on a plane two days ago. I was next to a man who was probably wondering, 'Who the hell is this lady with a negligee?' I love a negligee. He was watching Page Six TV, and he said, 'Is that you?' And I said, 'Yes, it's me. Please don't tell me what they're saying.' "
"My husband was about to have a baby, and I knew that I was about to divorce. I knew that there would be headlines. I had to process it so that once I came out, I came out on top. I didn't work for three decades to land at the bottom over some [expletive] like this," she added in the interview, which was published online on Monday, August 26.
Despite the split, Wendy refused to talk bad about Kevin, saying he "will always be my family." She explained, "Because we have a 19-year-old son [Hunter Jr.], and we were together for 25 years and married for 21. But there was no vacillating. I'm out. That's all I can say. People want me to hate and scream and talk. I won't."
"The main reason I won't talk badly about Kevin is that he was my first true love," she divulged. "I will not have people talk badly. I talk filthy about him, but that is when I get in my apartment and the door is closed and I am talking to myself in the mirror."
