AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams' ex-husband wasn't happy to see her new documentary. According to a new report, Kevin Hunter Sr. was left "blindsided" by how his ex was depicted in Lifetime's "Where Is Wendy Williams?".
"Kevin was shocked to see his ex-wife portrayed in such a negative light in the Lifetime trailer," a source told The U.S. Sun. "He was also totally blindsided that their son, Kevin Jr, ended up signing onto the project after he initially said he wanted nothing to do with it."
The insider claimed Kevin was "against the documentary from day one," because it "would only further diminish his ex-wife's legacy." He was reportedly "very sad" to see the scene in the trailer in which Wendy yelled over a bottle of vodka and appeared disoriented in the middle of New York City.
Kevin was "furious" that his ex was "still being exploited to that level." He was also sorry that his son, Kevin Jr., decided to sign onto the project. "Little Kev was repeatedly advised that it was a bad look to be involved in this project and that it was not in his best interest to have his name attached to it," the insider explained.
The "Where Is Wendy Williams?" trailer was dropped on Thursday, February 8. The now-deleted video featured the former radio personality grappling with substance abuse and financial issues. "I have no money," she said. "I'm going to tell you something - if it happens to me, it could happen to you."
Later in the trailer, Wendy could be seen breaking into tears as she said, "I miss my family." She also accused people around her of "stealing money from me," adding that she has no friends.
The footage also saw Wendy's sister Wanda saying, "Everybody could look at her and tell that this is not just alcohol. There's something more going on." When asked if she knew where the former TV star was, she replied, "No, I don't know the exact location of where she is."
The star's son Kevin Hunter, Jr., meanwhile, blamed people surrounding his mom for doing nothing and allowing her alcoholism to continue. "I feel like the guardian has not done a good job in protecting my mom," he said. Her sister additionally insisted that her family should be the one taking care of the New York native.
"Where Is Wendy Williams?" is set to arrive on Lifetime on February 24 and 25.
