It looks like Wendy Williams’ personal life has become a hot topic.
Williams’ husband, Kevin Hunter, has reportedly been carrying on a decade-long affair with Sharina Hudson, a 32-year-old massage therapist.
“Kevin is with Sharina three or four times a week, often staying over,” a source told DailyMailTV. “They go to the gym together, they go out to restaurants together as if they’re a normal couple.
The source added, “But then he goes home to Wendy as if everything is normal there, too. He’s living a double life.”
Hunter — who serves as Williams’ manager and business partner — is reportedly in love with Hudson and intends to leave his talk show wife for the much younger woman.
Although that has yet to happen, Hunter, 46, is said to be funding Hudson’s lifestyle, including purchasing a 4,000 square foot home in Morristown, New Jersey for them. The massive property is less than 10 miles away from Hunter’s marital home he shares with Williams, 53, and their teenage son. Hunter has also purchased cars, jewelry, and clothing items for the therapist.
To gather intel on Hunter and Hudson’s alleged romance, DailyMailTV began tracking their daily moves starting in September of last year. Photographers captured the duo leaving the gym, running errands, and at their reported shared residence. A photo of a mailbox erected outside of the home bears both of their names, as well as an alleged relative of Hudson’s.
Their most recent outing took place last week following Hunter’s vacation with Williams in Barbados. Photos of Hunter and his mistress — or his “shawty” as he likes to call her — doesn’t depict any affection between them, behavior that is said to be deliberate. Sources said Hunter introduces Hudson as his sister when they are out in public to not tip anyone off about their relationship.
It is unclear if Williams is privy to her husband’s extramarital affair.
“Kevin runs the show in their marriage and Wendy never questions him on where he’s been,” an insider said.
It is also unknown if Hunter will, in fact, leave Williams for good. One of the photos obtained by DailyMail shows Hudson sporting a diamond sparkler on her ring finger, which could be an indication that his marriage to Williams is heading for divorce — action Hudson’s parents would love to see take place.
Hudson’s parents are purportedly in opposition of her relationship with Hunter because he has yet to fully commit to their daughter.
“Kevin has told Sharina that he will choose her eventually, but her family thinks he’s just stringing her along,” an insider said, adding that they’d like to have grandchildren.
Simply, Hunter is torn between two women both of whom have captured his heart.
“Kevin loves Sharina just as much as he loves his wife so it’s difficult for him to let go of either of them,” the source said. “Sharina has put a lot of pressure on him to leave Wendy and he has made certain promises, but will he follow through?”
Hunter has cheated on Williams in the past, at which she spoke about at length in an interview with Essence Magazine.
“If you told me when I was 25 years old or 30 years old that I would stay around for a cheater, I would have been like you are lying,” she said of the 2001 affair. “I’ve got way too much to offer a man to stick around for him cheating on me.”
She added, “At that particular time, I had my career in radio, I was making a great salary, I had vacation property of my very own and the world was my oyster, so I definitely thought I wasn’t staying around for some cheating. But I did and I don’t regret it.”
Williams credited the affair for making their union stronger.
“No, I’m not back to the girl that I was before him because when you get stung like that you never go back to who you were, only a fool does. But I love him and he loves me,” she said.
In 2014, reality star Evelyn Lozada revealed via Twitter that Hunter purchased shoes for another woman at her Miami boutique.
A spokesperson for Williams insisted that Hunter’s relationship with Hudson is strictly platonic.
On Tuesday, Wendy addressed the bombshell report on her eponymous talk show.
“All is well in Hunterville,” Williams said at the top of the broadcast. “Don’t believe the hype! And if there was hype, believe you me I would let you know.”She went on to say while flashing her
