How you doin’, girl? Wendy Williams stepped out on Wednesday, April 24, with a bodyguard in New York City. The talk show host recently filed for divorce from her husband of more than 21 years, Kevin Hunter, and it looked like she wanted a little extra protection while walking down the street. Scroll through the gallery below to see her outing.
The blonde beauty, 54, shielded her face from the cameras as she walked to her car. She wore a green jacket with a bright yellow purse and topped the look off with sunglasses. Clearly, the escort was trying to keep Wendy safe.
“Kevin’s toxicity was dragging everyone down … While the future is somewhat unclear, and what is clear is that Wendy has a huge support system compromised of her staff, industry colleagues and family,” an insider explained to Us Weekly.
