Wendy Williams has no desire to connect with the child fathered by her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, during their marriage. Fans of the Wendy Williams Show know that the chat show host has been on a rollercoaster journey, dealing with the fallout from her husband’s cheating scandal and revealed lovechild.
Wendy’s rocky road regularly made headlines, but the host explained that she knew that her future was bright throughout the ordeal, during a recent interview with ET Canada.
Wendy spoke about her upcoming Lifetime biopic and addressed her broken marriage with Hunter, and the child he fathered with another woman.
Wendy hired a private investigator amid her suspicion to uncover what was going on behind her back, during her husband’s infidelity. She shared that she kept up the facade of a devoted wife, who believed everything that Hunter told her.
“I was playing it off to my ex-husband like I still loved him and like I knew nothing and trying to be a good mother—like, I would never make the tears in front of my son,” Wendy said.
Wendy was asked if she had ever met Hunter’s lovechild.
“The baby? No, why would I want to meet her,” she said of Hunter’s daughter. “And I don’t want to know her. She’ll want to meet me first, though. Do you know where your father was the night that your mother was giving birth? He was with that lady on TV, Ms. Wendy. ‘Cause he was with me.”
She added that she had moved on from the “serial cheater” and the scandal, and had forgiven Hunter for his past behavior. She filed for divorce in April 2019, after twenty years of marriage. She clarified that despite the heartbreak that ended her marriage, she does not regret her relationship with Hunter.
“I don’t regret meeting him. I don’t regret falling in love with him. I don’t regret expressing my love on radio and TV about him even though I knew that he was a cheat and I knew that I was going to divorce him. I knew the b-tch and I knew the situation,” Wendy revealed.
