Last week, talk show villain Wendy Williams filed to divorce her terrible husband, Kevin Hunter.
Reports of his alleged cheating had been pouring in for ages, and it looks like her sobriety journey helped her make other changes in her life.
Now we're learning that the divorce only went down after Wendy confronted him about fathering a child with his mistress.
People reports that Wendy's divorce is going down because she could no longer ignore Kevin's antics.
"The split is definitely due to Kevin’s ongoing infidelity," an insider confirms.
"And," the source adds, due to the fact "that his mistress recently welcomed their child.”
“Wendy had hired a private investigator," the insider reveals.
She got the facts first, the source explains, "and confronted him."
"He confessed to everything," the insider notes, adding that this went down "three weeks ago."
The source explains: "All of the recent drama put a huge strain on Wendy."
Of course! Rumors are bad at any time, but especially when they're true -- and even more so when you're in addiction recovery.
All of this was a trigger for her, the insider explains, "and caused her to struggle with her sobriety."
She wrestled with her addiction, the source says, "as she did everything she could to try and save their marriage."
Even though it's definitely the right move, apparently Wendy has really struggled with this choice.
"The decision to split was terribly hard for her," the insider expresses.
"But," the source notes. "She’s regaining her health."
Her health and general wellbeing matters more than any marriage.
"She decided she needed to finally put herself first," the insider reports.
Wendy Williams' representative released a much less informative statement about the divorce.
"Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time." the statement began.
The rep claimed that "Kevin is supportive of Wendy."
"And," the statement continued. "They are working through this process together."
The statement concluded: "No additional comment will be provided at this time."
The Wendy Williams Show put out a statement affirming their appreciation of Wendy.
"Wendy and her family have been a part of Debmar-Mercury for over 10 years," the statement began.
"We respect their privacy," the show continued. "Regarding personal matters."
"As always," the statement concluded. "We remain committed to bringing an entertaining and topical show to our viewers."
Wendy herself has taken shots at her cheating husband on her show.
She has addressed the fact that her show has operated under the motto: "Their business is our business."
"It’s crazy ’cause now my business is your business,” Wendy pointed out.
“It’s kind of funny," she admitted. "Turnabout’s a fair game, I get it."
"I’m moving out of the sober house in just a few days, you know,” she revealed. “It’ll be Wendy on her own."
"I have to tell you, you know, I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction, alcoholism," Wendy reminded her viewers.
"And," she revealed. "I have a whole new life that I planned for myself and my son,”
“Believe me you," Wendy expressed. "When you lay in a room with no TV and four gray walls all day …"
She added: "this is my life in the sober house."
Not exactly the best advertisement, but Wendy says that it's been good for her.
"It’s one of the best things, honestly, that could have ever happened to me," Wendy expressed.
"Addressing my sobriety, my addiction, head-on has really helped me sort out every single compartment of my life,” Wendy announced.
“I have a commitment to me and my son," she affirmed. "To come out of here better, stronger, and faster than ever."
"And by the way, I will still commit," she promised. "I commit that the motto of this show will always be, ‘Their business is our business.’"
In other words, just because her personal life was laid bare doesn't mean that she's suddenly sensitive to the privacy desires of other public figures.
People's insider confirmed: "She’s ready to leave the sober living house and build a new life for her and her son."
