Wendy Williams Shouts Out Husband: Eff the Rumors! I Love You!

by at .

On Monday morning, Wendy Williams returned to host her talk show for the first time in two months.

And, after updating her viewers on the condition of her health following a series of ongoing setback and scares, Williams shifted the focus to one of the hottest topics out there:

Her own marriage.

By now, you've probably heard all the chatter, right?

For quite awhile, the rumor mill has been churning with discussion over whether Wendy's husband of over two decades, Kevin Hunter, has been having an affair.

And not just any random, brief affair, either.

The Daily Mail has reported that Hunter is living a double life with his mistress and may even have gotten her pregnant.

Heck, some have even theorized that Williams stayed off the air for so long in order to avoid the embarrassment of airing episodes during the height of this subject matter making the Internet round.

But she went right ahead and addressed the alleged infidelity on Monday -- as directly as ever.

Wendy Williams on Hot Topics

"I want to shout out to my husband. I'm still wearing my ring," the polarizing personality said on air, adding:

"Believe me you, when you've been with somebody for 28 years...married for 25 years...we know each other.

"He's my best friend, he's my lover, he's all this and he's all that. I know what you've been seeing and I know what the streets have been talking about."

Williams never actually shot down the rumor of an affair, but did make it clear she's sticking by her man.

For better or for worse.

She even pulled out a throwback photo of the couple together "before any plastic surgery" and told her audience:

"Let me show you who I fell in love with and who he fell in love with."

While Williams looked differently from the woman in the photo, "it's still me in the head and I am still very much in love with my husband," she explained, concluding as follows:

"Anybody who's been married for 5 minutes or 500 years, you know marriages have ebbs and flows. Marriages are not easy.

"Don't ask me about mine until you see this [ring] gone and it ain't going anywhere - not in this lifetime."

Sort of interesting, right?

If you ask us, we'd say Williams is acknowledging that Hunter cheater, while also stating that her marriage will remain intact.

As for her health?

Following complications from Graves' disease and a shoulder fracture that kept her sidelined since December and caused some to think she was getting the boot from her own show?

How you doing? I'm doing better now so let’s get started!" she said to open Monday's installment, continuing:

"Thank you. I missed you too. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect when I hit the block today. I didn't know whether you would wait for me if you would understand. Thank you so much for waiting for us."

By way of explaining her absence, she added:

"What happened was, we were only supposed to be off for two weeks for Christmas vacation.

"Towards the end of the two weeks I was starting to feel thyroid issues. If you don’t know about them, it's a lifetime thing. They can really screw you over.

"So, they are adjusting my thyroid meds and the eyeballs are attached to the thyroid, which is my Graves' disease, and I always have equilibrium issues with my vertigo.

"I'm the kind of patient, if I cough, I am thinking, 'I am dying. I know I've gotten to that point.'"

Thankfully, though, Williams is not dying.

And even if she'll always be battling this medical condition, she's doing a whole lot better now than she was just a couple months ago.

"I am happy to tell you I am doing swell," she said, ending this statement by showing her appreciation for the professionals who have helped her recover:

"I can't even tell you how many doctors I have, but I want to shout out to each and every one of you. Thank you so much."
