After firing her estranged husband, Kevin Hunter, both as her manager and as an executive producer of her daytime talk show, Wendy Williams has moved on to a new manager. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Williams hired Bernie Young.
Young was with “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” from 1996 to 2002, working as coordinating producer and eventually executive producer. He was also a co-executive producer on “Martha” from 2005 to 2012.
Williams continues to executive produce her own show. The Post cites a spokesperson for the show saying Young will not be an executive producer on the show and there are no plans to hire a new one.
“On Tuesday, Williams was spotted walking with Young and a bodyguard after taping her show, which Hunter departed last week. Only one day later, the production had cut Hunter’s name from the credits,” The Post reports, adding: “Prior to his ouster, Williams hired extra security to have on set while working with Hunter to protect her from his allegedly abusive behavior.”
