Wendy Williams has been through a lot with the recent loss of her hairstylist. Now it looks like Wendy is about to lose another man in her life because those behind The Wendy Williams Show want her husband fired from his role as executive producer.
According to reports, Kevin Hunter has become so controlling behind the scenes that the rest of the crew wants him gone and Wendy is on board to have him fired. Given their recent marital problems, does this mean divorce for Williams and Hunter
According to B. Scott, the recent house cleaning on the talk show just isn’t enough. Several senior producers were recently fired from Williams’ show, but it looks like the firings are not over yet. Showrunners want Wendy Williams’ husband fired too and she seems pretty okay with it all. Now there is speculation that Kevin Hunter won’t just lose his position on the show, but that he might be headed for a divorce from Wendy Williams too.

“Show execs want her husband/manager fired from the show,” claims a B. Scott 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.”
Wendy has been married to Kevin Hunter since 1997 and he’s been active with The Wendy Williams Show since it began in 2008. Sources claim that as time went on, Kevin has become more controlling on set and it’s become so bad recently that it has put a strain on his marriage to Williams.
According to the report, Hunter is so controlling that everything about the show has to go through him now. That means all guest bookings and segment ideas are run by Wendy Williams’ husband before they even reach her as well as script changes and pretty much everything else.

His control issues have gotten so bad that they claim Kevin Hunter hired Wendy Williams a new driver and even changed her phone number so that staffers didn’t have as much access to the star anymore. Instead, he told everyone to come to him first.
Considering what a strong person and huge personality Wendy is, those close to her don’t understand why she doesn’t just put her foot down and take back control. There are claims that Kevin’s presence on set of The Wendy Williams Show has made everyone miserable, including Wendy.

It has been suggested that maybe if Kevin Hunter is fired from the show and he can just be Wendy’s husband rather than an executive producer and her manager, maybe the two can work their marriage out. They have been married for almost 20 years now and it would be sad to see all of that gone. That said, The Wendy Williams Show has been renewed through 2020 so her show will go on. It’s just looking like it’s time to go on without Hunter because everyone else on set is ready to work without the stress of running everything by him while Wendy has no creative control over her own empire.
