Wendy Williams isn’t letting anything get her down during the start of her new season. Not even a shocking news report that alleges that her husband of 20 years is cheating with a 32-year-old massage therapist.
On Monday, a year-long investigative report from Britisth outlet, Daily Mail, accused Williams’ husband, Kevin Hunter, of stepping out outside of their union and leading a double life for over a decade.
During her live show on Tuesday morning, the talk show queen subtly shot down the rumors and even included a little of her signatue shade too.
“I stand by my guy,” she said to open the show as she flashed her wedding ring.
“We commuted together this morning. The paparazzi were outside catching me in the cutest négligée…All is well in Hunterville,” said Williams. “Don’t believe the hype. And if there was hype, believe me, I would let you know. And by the way, I’ll be following this story. So I guess I’ll have to watch to find out what happens.”
Throughout the hour long show, the 53-year-old hinted at the news surrounding her personal life but was quick to come to the defense of her husband who she married in November of 1997.
“It’s weird doing Hot Topics and being a hot topic,” she said as she sipped tea from her iconic Wendy mug.
This isn’t the first time Williams as had her own personal life make headlines.
In 2013, the New Jersey native was open about her husband’s previous infidelities, which occurred shourtly after she gave birth to their son Kevin Jr. in 2000.
“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,” she told Vlad TV at the time. “But I love him and he loves me. If you told me when I was 25 years old or 30 years old that I would stay around for a cheater, I would have been like you are lying. I’ve got way too much to offer a man to stick around for him cheating on me. At that particular time, I had my career in radio, I was making a great salary, I had vacation property of my very own and the world was my oyster, so I definitely thought I wasn’t staying around for some cheating. But I did and I don’t regret it.”
Williams hasn’t commented any futher on the current allegations.
