Wendy Williams And Husband Kevin Hunter Having Issues At Home And Work
Seems like it’s breakup season… Besides the problems plaguing Vince and Tamar, J.Lo and Casper and Kendu and MJB it looks like we can add Wendy Williams and her manager hubby Kevin Hunter to the list.
You may recall Wendy axed a gang of folks after the whole HBCU debacle a month or so back. Now the remaining staff are calling for Hunter — who has been Exec Producer of the show from jump — to be fired.
“Show execs want her husband/manager fired from the show,” said our source. “Wendy is in FULL support of his exit amid their major marital problems. Things have gotten so bad that she is seriously considering filing for divorce.”
According to previous reports , Kevin’s influence on the show is making the entire crew — including Wendy — ‘miserable’.
“Kevin makes all the decisions and has become more and more controlling as the show has become a success,” one show insider tells Confidenti@l. “He insists that all show questions be run by him.”
Hunter has had Williams change her cell phone number so she is not as accessible to the many staffers on the show.
“He’s also hired her a new driver, who reports to him,” says our source.
Things have gotten so intense at the show that producers have been warned that all scripts must go to Hunter before Williams can even read them. And Hunter must approve all the ideas for segments and celebrity guest bookings.
“Wendy is smart. No one can understand why she does not tell him to f? off,” adds our source. “He is making everyone’s lives miserable and is causing problems on an otherwise great show.”
That sounds like quite a conundrum. The couple have been together since 1997 — but the show has already been renewed through 2020. Sounds like a lot to balance.
