Now that she’s single, Wendy Williams seems to be celebrating her newfound freedom — by agreeing that she never wants to get married again. Or does she? Actually, the host of the Wendy Williams Show isn’t sure just yet. While talking with guest Christie Brinkley during one of her segments on April 17, the two chatted about divorce. For her part, Christie’s been divorced four times and Wendy served husband Kevin Hunter with papers on April 11 after filing on April 10. After years of denying rumors that culminated in her proudly showing off her wedding ring on March 4, the TV host popped that sucker off by the end of the month.
Though it’s hard to say exactly why Wendy filed for divorce (other than the “irreconcilable differences” cited in the court paperwork), there have been suspicions that her husband has had a mistress for years. But is the 54-year-old star interested in finding a new man of her own now that she’s single? Well, maybe! After Christie said she’d never get married again, Wendy agreed, saying, “Me neither.” A second later, she backtracked. “I mean, I don’t know.” There is one thing she does know, though: She’s still open to love. “It’s nice to spoon at night. It’s nice to sit by the fire with somebody,” she told Christie.
It seems like Kevin isn’t as ready to move forward as his ex is, though. On April 16, he issued a public apology to his wife. “28 years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams,” he wrote in a statement shared with The Blast. “At the time, I didn’t realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world. I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally.” He continued, “I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans. I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.
He even seems hopeful that he and Wendy may get back together. “No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine,” he shared in the statement. “I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you.”
