Wendy Williams is officially divorced to Kevin Hunter as of January 22 and loving the “new chapter” of her life! The talk show host opened up about her emotions regarding the end of her marriage in an interview with Jimmy Fallon on January 23.
“After nine months, yes, I am fully divorced,” Wendy, 55, told Jimmy, 45. “A door has closed in old life, the new chapter has been so lovely.”
She continued, “Thank you for asking that. Thank you. Because people tip-toe around that. I don’t feel like I’m intimidating, but people are so scared. But you and I have known each other for a long time.”
The Wendy Williams Show host then opened up about her feelings regarding the end of her relationship with Kevin, 47. “I’m not mad, you know, it was 25 years I don’t regret,” she said. “But you know what, sometimes people move on with their lives. And I have to tell you something, I’m now — I no longer live in Jersey, it is Wendy in the city.”
Per divorce documents obtained by Page Six, Wendy and Kevin are splitting the proceeds of their home in Livingston, NJ. Kevin, however, gets to keep the proceeds from another home he owned and sold in Morristown, NJ.
Wendy also revealed she’d get married again. However, she gave strict rules about a prenup, seemingly a dig about how her settlement panned out. “Yes! With a one-page prenup, one paragraph, maybe two sentences. What’s yours is yours. What’s mine is mine. What we earned during the marriage is yours and what’s mine is mine,” she said.
Kevin got to keep his Ferrari and Rolls-Royce, stay under Wendy’s health insurance, is still a beneficiary on her $1 million life insurance policy. The couple also had equal shares in Wendy Williams Productions Inc. According to the settlement, Wendy will be the sole owner but she has to pay Kevin for his share of the production company and a severance package.
Wendy, however, gets to walk away with the money from their joint bank account. The couple also agreed to pay their own legal fees and will not pay any alimony.
The daytime talk show host filed for divorce in April 2019 after Kevin allegedly fathered a child with his mistress Sharina Hudson. “I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans,” Kevin said in a statement after she filed for divorce. “I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.”
“Infidelity is one thing. A full baby is a whole other topic, okay?” Wendy said on The View in September 2019. “I’m not changing Pampers, I want to be pampered.”
