Wendy Williams’ ex appears to credit new fiancée for ‘Wendy’ show success


Wendy Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter seems to acknowledge himself and new fiancée, Sharina Hudson, for aiding in the success of the “Wendy Williams Show.”

Counting Hudson, 37, as part of the “team” that built the Emmy-nominated daytime talk show, Hunter, 51, said that no other show host will ever achieve the glory that Williams, 58, accomplished during her 13-season run. 

“Nobody will ever bring the energy, the charisma, the passion, the expertise, the talent like you’ve seen Kelvin Hunter, my ex Wendy Williams and the team that was behind us,” said a tearful Hunter in a lengthy Instagram post earlier this month. He emphasized that his assertion was not meant to “slight” anyone else in talk show biz.

“And I mean my whole team,” continued Hunter, who held executive producer credits on the weekday broadcast. “That includes my current lady now because it takes a village. Yeah, I said it. Who ever don’t like it, they just ain’t gonna like it.”

Williams successfully hosted her eponymously-named show from 2008 until 2021.

Their split came after it was revealed that Hunter, who the media diva has deemed a “serial cheater,” fathered a child with Hudson, a masseuse from New Jersey, outside of their wedded union. 

Hunter and Hudson became engaged in October 2021. 

This February, Debmar-Mercury, the production company behind the “Wendy” show announced its cancellation.

In the weeks prior to its last live broadcast, a revolving door of guest hosts, including rappers Fat Joe, 52, and Remy Ma, 42, actor Nick Cannon, 41, and actress Leah Remini, 52, stood in Williams’ stead while she sought treatment for a number of health-related issues.

The series finale aired on June 17 with actress Sherri Shepherd, 55, as host. 

In July, Williams told The Post that there was “nothing” she liked about her show’s swan song episode.
