Wendy Williams Doing Her Best To Cut All Ties From Estranged Husband: Report

Wendy Williams has recently taken time on her show to share that she’s ready to start her new life, and she’s doing her best to eliminate her soon-to-be ex-husband as soon as possible. “I have to tell you, you know I’ve been dealing with issues addiction, alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I plan for myself and my son,” she said, purposefully leaving out Kevin Hunter’s name. Now that Hunter has reportedly been axed as the executive producer her show, Williams wants to sever all ties with her alleged cheating spouse.

According to TMZWilliams has been working diligently to cut Hunter f from all her accounts and finances. There are rumors that he received a $10 million payout to leave The Wendy Williams Show, but that doesn’t mean that he still doesn’t have some access to personal finances, especially considering the two were together for two decades. The publication states that Williams has hired a team advisors to ensure that her money is secure, and she’s gone so far as to create new accounts for herself—something that she reportedly did before serving Hunter with divorce papers.

We previously reported that Williams is making a swift exit from her New Jersey home where she and Hunter lived together and is on the hunt to find a place for herself and her son. TMZ shares that Williams has found new digs in Manhattan and has paid rent for the next 12 months.

Van Jones Roasts Wendy Williams & Her Divorce On Her Show

Wendy Williams hasn’t been having the best year so far. She found out that her husband over twenty years had been cheating on her for half the marriage, getting his mistress pregnant last year. The talk show host fractured her shoulder during an alleged altercation with her husband, who has been gifting his girlfriend with tons expensive gifts over the last few months. On top all that, Wendy relapsed on alcohol, heading to a sober living facility for treatment. Now, she’s back on her show but she just can’t escape the shade. Wendy seems to be obsessed with everybody else’s drama and now that her own dirty laundry is out in the open, she would prefer to dig even deeper into other people’s lives. When she was interviewing Van Jones on her show, she decided to ask about his “soon-to-be-ex-wife” and the political commentator came back with the perfect response.

The controversial host the show started speaking about the show that Van produces with his wife, noting that they’re getting a divorce. She noticed that he’s still wearing his ring, to which Jones replied: “You got something on your hand too so I ain’t talking about that.” Wendy was caught f-guard by the comments, rolling her eyes and reminding Van that he’s there to answer questions, not ask them.

The moment is genuinely pretty funny and you can tell that Wendy wasn’t upset by it at all. Van Jones is a regular guest on the show so he likely has a close relationship with Wendy. During his most recent appearance, he also spoke about Meek Mill being left f TIME 100’s list the most influential people, Kim Kardashian‘s journey to becoming a lawyer, and more.

Wendy Williams’ Husband Has Been Removed From Talkshow’s End Credits

Wendy Williams and her estranged husband Kevin Hunter are getting closer and closer to cutting all ties since announcing a divorce just over a week ago. Since the big news, Kevin has been dropped from his executive producer role on Wendy’s show and was given 48 hours to vacate the home he shared with Wendy and their son. 

The latter became very real since the latest end credits that ran for Wendy’s show no longer listed Kevin’s name as an executive producer, but rather just Wendy’s.

The move comes after Kevin’s departure from the show was confirmed yesterday and it was also reported that he got a $10 million payout as well.

“Basically at the height  Ice Cube and N.W.A’s] feud — and what people don’t understand was that we were all friends, we knew each other behind the scenes,” she recalled. “Dre] hadn’t left yet. He was still a part the group so I interviewed the group about their popularity, about Straight Outta Compton. Cube was leaving the group so they were separated and the segment was switched where Cube said something about the group and it was edited into the show, completely out my hand, into their particular interview, which played on Pump It Up!”

Barnes continued to speak on the altercation where Dr. Dre brutally assaulted her. Barnes elaborated further on the assault before explaining that she managed to get away and tried to escape to the women’s restroom but Dre followed her in there. 

“He continued to assault me in the women’s restroom,” Barnes told. 

“Beating you up? Were you sexually assaulted?” Wendy asked. 

“I’m not comfortable talking about everything right now,” Barnes replied tearfully. 

Your silence is speaking volumes,” Wendy replied. 

Kevin Hunter Concerned For Wendy Williams’ Financial Security Post-Divorce

Kevin Hunter had to pack up and move out his shared home with estranged wife Wendy Williams, but it doesn’t mean he’s done thinking about the well being  his soon to be ex-wife anytime soon. The Blast reports that while Kevin understands Wendy’s move to divorce him, he’s worried that without his protection and guidance, her empire will come crumbling down. 

Sources tell the publication that Kevin feels as if he “protected Wendy’s] interests” for the sum her career and blocked any scammers and bad business deals from going down. Kevin was not just the executive producer her talk show, but he was her manager and he thinks that her being alone may be a bad idea since people could swoop in and take advantage her. 

Apparently, Kevin even questions some the staffers on set, who he believes could have ill intentions.

“No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life sobriety, while I also work on mine. I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you.”

Wendy Williams Disguised Divorce Papers As A Gift With A Bow: Report

With the number gifts Kevin Hunter has reportedly gotten his mistress Sharina Hudson since he knocked her up, you can’t really blame Wendy Williams for being so petty when serving her husband with divorce papers. It was revealed last week that the talk show host had ficially filed for divorce from her longtime husband after finding out that he fathered a child with his mistress over ten years. She gave her relationship a lot thought and this was her final decision, choosing to find a new place to live in Manhattan. However, the way that she informed her husband their pending divorce was pure Wendy because according to several witnesses, she actually disguised the legal papers as a gift wrapped with a bow.

According to Love B. Scott, who was among the first to report on Wendy’s relationship troubles when they were still rumored, Wendy served her husband with divorce papers last week, packing them neatly in a gift box with a bow. Once he opened the present, he reportedly ran f screaming and cursing, which would make sense since he allegedly did not want to end his relationship with Williams because she funds his lifestyle. Without her, Hunter would not have been able to cop his mistress a gold Ferrari, expensive diamonds and a Chanel purse. 

In addition to the divorce, Wendy apparently revoked Kevin’s access to her studio, changing the access codes and instructing the staff to not let him anywhere near her. He may not have trouble finding a new girlfriend since, you know, he’s already with her, but a new job will surely stress him out for the foreseeable future.

The Wendy Williams Show staff was left to scramble for a guest at the last minute after WWE’s Sasha Banks canceled.

According to Page Six, the show’s staff was infuriated with Banks’ cancelation and a source close to the show assured that she won’t ever be booked to appear on the show in the future.

“She won’t be booked again,” the insider said. “She didn’t give a real reason for canceling, and she did it only hours before the show tapes, so production was left scrambling to fill her spot. Wendy ended up doing an extra segment Hot Topics instead.”

Banks announced the cancelation earlier today on Twitter, saying that she won’t be able to appear “due to personal reasons.”

“Due to personal reasons, I had to pull out my appearance today on @WendyWilliams,” she wrote. “Sorry to everyone who was looking forward to it. Hopefully the opportunity will be there again later. #IfYouOnlyKnew.”

Well, it looks like the opportunity won’t be there for the foreseeable future but hopefully, Wendy and the staff will be able to get over it and invite Sasha back on the show. 

"Empire" Actress Tasha Smith Reveals Past Addiction & Says She "Could Have Been A Crackhead Today"

We’d like to fall into the illusion that entertainers have always strived to achieve their goals being accomplished artists, but many come from humble beginnings that ten include trauma and serious hardships. We’ve all watched as Wendy Williams has recently opened up about her addiction issues and struggles with sobriety. She’s shared her story throughout her career, at times to her detriment as people have used it against her, but she’s used it as a way to help others and even launched her organization, The Hunter Foundation

Empire actress Tasha Smith has an extensive resumé and has been on both the large and small screens for over 20 years, but the Camden, New Jersey native’s life almost went a different route. She’s known as having a loud, outspoken, and recognizable voice (if you’ve ever seen Why Did I Get Married? then you already know), and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind, but according to her, she was much different in her early life.

In a recent interview on Uncensored, Smith revealed that she has wonderful memories growing up in Camden, but those come with experiences one would like to forget, as well. “As beautiful as Camden was, it was a place where I dealt with sexual, physical abuse, a place where I did all kinds drugs,” she says. “I was doing cocaine at the age 14. I really could have been a crackhead today” adding “it was also a place that gave me a lot resilience, perseverance and hustle.”

Smith said that when she turned 18, she left Camden to follow her dreams by moving to Los Angeles. She landed small roles in various projects and was later featured in shows and films including ATLDaddy’s Little GirlsPlayas BallThe Steve Harvey ShowThe ParkersGirlfriends, and much more.

“We all have situations to overcome, but you don’t quit,” Smith said. “You keep trying.”

“Her whole life is in the public eye, and you don’t know what’s really the truth, and what’s not the truth, and so you just, kind , wait and let people come to you,” she added. “You might send a message like, ‘I’m here for you,’ but sometimes you don’t even want to hear that. You just, kind , got to go through it and then reach out to people.”

Wendy Williams Divorce May Reveal How Much Husband Spent On Alleged Mistress Of 10 Years

At the top the month, it was reported that Wendy Williams and her husband Kevin Hunter were entertaining the idea a separation. As we know, Kevin reportedly welcomed a baby with his mistress 10 years leading Wendy to relapse. A few days after, Wendy announced a week hiatus from her talk show that her producer’s claim was planned back in the Fall.  

Wendy is back to her show today, and we’re curious if she’ll discuss herself as a hot topic since new reports state that any further divorce moves with her husband could reveal just how much he spent on his mistress for the 10-year span. “If Kevin is this baby’s father, it affects things. If he spent a lot money on this woman, a judge can concede that’s a wasteful dissipation spending marital funds in a frivolous manner],” a top divorce lawyer told Page Six. Both Wendy and Kevin own Wendy Williams Productions that runs her talk show which means a divorce would force them to split the company.

Not too long ago, Oscar-winning actress Mo’Nique weighed in on Wendy’s family drama calling her private ordeal karma. “It’s all about how messy I can be,” Mo’Nique said Wendy’s show. “It’s all about “Ohhh, how can I crack on this person. How hard can I make fun somebody’s downfall,’ or it] appears to be that way.” 

“The lesson for me that my ears are hearing is, let me make sure what I put out there is what I would want to come back,” she continued. “Let me make sure I’m not so high on my ass that I can say or do, rip down, rip apart, tear down, whomever I choose to because it’s part the business…but now when the universe says, ‘Oh, you know it’s your turn.’ We don’t pay attention to that, we just pay attention to the mess.”

Wendy Williams’ Husband Upgraded Her Watch With Diamonds Before Cheating Scandal

Before Wendy Williams’s husband, Kevin Hunter, reportedly welcomed a child with his mistress 10-years, it seems as though he made moves to get his wife something special. Page Six reports that more than two weeks ago, Kevin stopped by Flawless Jewelry to have Wendy’s Franck Muller watch “upgraded” by adding 25 carats worth diamond on the band and the face the watch.

The publication notes that the order was placed well before the birth Kevin’s alleged new child. The accessory is now valued at $40,000 and was picked up from the jeweler on Thursday, March 28th. It’s unclear just how much Kevin spent on the upgrade. Considering that Wendy has been spotted without her wedding ring a few times in the last few weeks, we’ll have to see if she even wears her upgraded watch from her husband when she returns to her talk-show next week. 

As previously posted, Wendy and Kevin are discussing a separation since their joint business ventures make things more tricky. “There is a discussion about what happens now — everyone is asking, ‘How can they possibly stay together?’ Wendy still loves Kevin, but her health is at stake,” a source detailed. “They are so tangled up together in business, so they are carefully looking at what a separation could entail. It will be difficult.”

Birdman To Get His Facial Tattoos Removed: "That Stereotypes You"

Bryan Christopher Williams A.K.A. Birdman turned 50 last month and the milestone age has inspired him to look into tattoo removal for the number ink on his face. The “Money To Blow” rapper paid a visit to The Wendy Williams Show not too long ago and discussed how he’s chatting with 50 Cent who made similar moves a while back. 

“I didn’t want to take the head tattoos] f, but I want to take the facials f,” he said. “And I was asking my partner, 50 Cent]… ’cause he removed his tattoos. So I wanted to go to somebody who can take these tats f my face.” If for some reason he can’t get them removed, Birdman explains how it won’t be an issue.

“If I have to live with it, I will. I just felt like, me being older, I would like to get it f. But if not, it is what it is.” Last month Birdman was featured in Forbes and echoed the same sentiments about getting his ink removed. “I just think at this point in my life, I don’t need that.

Wendy even detailed how she felt the first time she found out Kevin cheated on her. “In those forty-five seconds my woman’s intuition kicked in and I knew he was on the phone with a lover,” she wrote. “No woman deserves this. … I wanted to kill him. I mean really kill him. For real. I wanted to kill him more because I was in the process breaking my Number One Rule: No Cheating.”
