Wendy Williams Has a Response to the Reports of Her Husband Having an Affair: “Don’t Believe the Hype”

Wendy Williams is responding to rumors of reports that her longtime husband Kevin Hunter is having a decade-long affair. The rumors started Monday, after The Daily Mail reported a lengthy expose, with photos to match and corroborate their story, which was that Hunter was leading a double life and has been for at least 10 years. Being that Williams makes her living from offering commentary on tabloid fodder, Tuesday’s (Sept. 29) episode of her long-running hit daytime talk show The Wendy Williams Show marked the perfect time for the talk show host to confirm or deny what has been circulating around the rumor mill.

“Look, I’m a straight shooter. Pow, pow. All you got to do is Google him and you see the story. You can believe what you want, but I stand by my guy,” she said to her studio audience before showing the camera her wedding ring.

She followed up that statement by asking her viewers not to believe the “hype.” “By the way, I’ll be following this story. So I guess I’ll have to watch and find out what happens,” she added.

The talk of the town suggests that the mistress in question is 32-year-old massage therapist Sharina Hudson. In the story published by The Daily Mail, the publication alleged that Hunter and Hudson share a home that Hunter purchased “nine miles down the road” from the NJ home he shares with wife Williams. Williams, 53, has been married to Hunter, 46, for almost 20 years this November.

“One plus one does not equal three. This woman is a friend but there is no ‘there’ there,” Williams said in a statement to US Weekly Monday (Sept. 25).

This is not the first time an extramarital affair has come about on Hunter’s side of the couple’s nearly two decade union. In a past interview Williams shared her feelings on the previous affair, “It has made our marriage – and I know this is cliché but it’s true – it’s made our marriage stronger. And no, I’m not back to the girl that I was before him because when you get stung like that, you never go back to who you were – only a fool does. But, I love him and he loves me and we addressed it head on. I definitely didn’t think I was staying around for some cheating, but I did. And, I don’t regret it.”

The couple have a 17-year-old son together, named Kevin Jr.
