Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter's marital troubles have been widely publicized over the past few months. It was revealed that Hunter was having an affair with a woman who ended up recently giving birth to his child. She filed for divorce last week and reports said that she gave him 48 hours to move out of their home.
Reports also stated that the two previously were in the process of an agreement. While there were no problems with his work or how he handled his duties, Williams was suffering from "distress" due to his presence on the set because of the status of their relationship.
Earlier this week, Wendy Williams addressed all the controversy on her show and clearly, she's feeling optimistic.
"I’m moving out of the sober house in just a few days, you know. It’ll be Wendy on her own. You know I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction and alcoholism and I have a whole new life that I plan for myself and my son," she said.
