The daytime talk show host appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and discussed her feelings about being divorced from Hunter after 21 years of marriage. According to Us Weekly, Williams indicated she was ready to move on after going through the legal proceedings for the past nine months. Williams filed for divorce from Hunter back in April 2019.
“A door has closed. An old life,” Williams shared with Fallon. “The new chapter has been so lovely.”
Fallon asked Williams if the separation and ultimate divorce led to Williams’ current living situation in New York City. During their marriage, the couple lived in New Jersey for several years when they shared a home in Livingston. Since their split, Williams reportedly hasn’t been back to their home. The author was happy that Fallon wasn’t afraid to ask her about her move, and confirmed that she is still living on her own in New York.
“Thank you for asking that. Thank you because people tiptoe around that. I don’t feel like I’m intimidating, but people are so scared, but you and I have known each other for a long time,” Williams told Fallon. “I’m not mad. It was 25 years I don’t regret, but, you know what, sometimes people move on with their lives, and I have to tell you something. I now, I no longer live in Jersey. It is Wendy in the city.”
Williams also dished about her dating life since becoming a single woman. The mother of one has shared on her show that she has dated several men since filing for divorce. She has also been spotted during several outings with her show’s DJ Boof. Williams said, however, that while she is having a good time dating, her career is her priority. She also admitted that dating takes a “certain amount of dedication,” especially since she is in the public eye.
Williams and Hunter were married in 1997, three years after meeting at an ice skating rink. The two share one son, Kevin Hunter, Jr., who is 19-years-old. Although rumors state that Hunter had cheated on Williams in the past, the couple’s marriage reportedly ended after he was rumored to have impregnated his mistress, Sharina Hudson.
Hunter and Hudson were reportedly together for several years while he was married to Williams.
