A popular talk show host who has been in the spotlight lately for a number of personal issues has filed for divorce. The AP reports that Wendy Williams filed to divorce her husband of 22 years, Kevin Hunter.
Williams, 54, and Hunter, 46, who is also her manager, have a 19-year-old son, Kevin Jr.
“Her attorney, Mary Vidas, says the papers were filed in Essex County, New Jersey, where the talk show diva has a home,” the AP reports. “Vidas would not comment further on what she called ‘a private family matter.’”
The report quotes a representative for “The Wendy Williams Show” saying, “Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together.”
Williams, who has taken time off from her show recently to deal with health concerns, revealed last month that she was living in a sober house as she battled addiction issues.
“Williams recently told her audience that she was ‘still very much in love’ with her husband and that her wedding ring wasn’t ‘going anywhere,'” the AP notes.
