Wendy Williams’ ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, opened up about the end of Wendy’s chat show, ripping into Debmar-Mercury, the production company behind The Wendy Williams Show, for not being aware of “how severe her health was.”

Hunter addressed his ex’s personal issues, claiming that she needed more time to cope after she learned that he had fathered a child outside their marriage. Hunter and Wendy share a 21-year-old son, Kevin Hunter. He and Sharina Hudson welcomed a daughter, in March 2019.

“In the midst of my situation with having a baby and going through a divorce with her, the situation of her coming out of a sober house dealing with an issue which escalated because of the news she found out, but wasn’t necessarily triggered by, this was already happening, unbeknownst to a lot of people,” he said on Choke No Joke.

He added—”Only me and my son know really what was happening.”

“They callously … let me rewind that back … The [production company] did not take or give her the time that a person would need going through this severe amount of crisis. I almost begged them,” Hunter claimed.

He explained that Wendy needed more time to process the complicated shift, as she moved from their marital home into her new place.

“She needed more time to heal, and that was time that wasn’t being given,” Hunter claimed.

Hunter mentioned the October 2017 episode, when Wendy fainted while filming her show.  

“I mean everybody unfortunately got a chance to see her pass out on national television and it was mortifying and you would think after that happened they would have put certain things in place. In some sort of department to deal with any kind of crisis or any kind of help she may really need,” he continued, saying that the incident stemmed from “her thyroid condition, being overworked, dehydration, and just not taking care of yourself.”

Fans know that several guest hosts stepped in to fill Wendy’s chair, ahead of her exit. The Wendy Williams Show aired its final episode on June 17.

Wendy is now hosting a new podcast with a focus on artists, fashion, food, and celebrities. 

In March, Radar Online reported that Hunter had filed a lawsuit accusing Debmar-Mercury, the producer-distributor of The Wendy Williams Show of unlawful termination.

[Kevin] Hunter was one of the reasons behind the Wendy Williams  Show’s tremendous success and everything seemed to go south after he left,” Hunter‘s attorney, Abe George, told the outlet, via a statement. “Mr. Hunter was unlawfully terminated solely due to his marital status to Wendy, which is contrary to human rights laws in NYC. This lawsuit seeks to compensate Mr. Hunter for the sweat equity that he put into the show and that Debmar-Mercury will continue to profit on even in their new reincarnation of the Wendy Williams Show.”

Hunter and Wendy wed in 1997 and Wendy filed for divorce in April 2019. Hunter alleged that he received notice that he had been fired as executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show by Debmar-Mercury, only days later.
