Wendy Williams’ is living in a sober house, her husband Kevin’s mistress reportedly gave birth to a baby girl last week, and now Wendy’s former friend Charlamagne tha God is spilling the tea about why their friendship ended — and it involves the mistress.
Charlamagne told Page Six “The real rehab she needs is from Kevin Hunter.”

Famed New York “Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne Tha God — who was a mentee of Williams and a former pal of her husband — tells Page Six that his friendship with Hunter and Williams, who married in 1997, blew up over Sharina.
Charlamagne got his big break as Williams’ radio sidekick. The DJ and TV star — who began working with Williams on a radio show on 107.5 WBLS around 2006 — told us that he and Hudson (with whom he was not romantically involved) were longtime pals in their hometown of Columbia, South Carolina, and he had introduced Hunter to the woman at a party around that time.
When Charlamagne moved to New York for work with Williams, Hudson came too and they both moved into a condo — rent-free — owned by Williams and Hunter in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
It is believed at the time Hunter was paying for Hudson to go to school in the city to get a massage license, but Charlamagne believes Hunter was either hoping to start or had started an affair with her at the time.
Charlamagne claims that Hunter was unusually possessive over Hudson and furious with him for introducing her to other men. “Mind you, Kevin was married to Wendy at the time,” he said.“The reason Kevin Hunter and I fell out, and the reason why I don’t communicate with Wendy anymore is because of Sharina,” Charlamagne told us, describing an incident in 2009. “Kevin got upset because he thought Sharina liked one of my homeboys and he thought that I was hooking Sharina up [with other men].”
As Charlamagne and Williams continued to work together on their radio show, Hunter — Williams’ manager and a producer of her show — became more difficult, he claims. When she landed her syndicated daytime talk show in 2008, Charlamagne filmed street skits and interviews for Williams.
But he claims Hunter became even more controlling, and started to push him out. Hunter eventually fired Charlamagne, telling him never to contact Williams again, allegedly saying, “You are dead to us.”
After that incident, Charlamagne said, “Kevin has literally gone out of his way to try to stop my livelihood, to cut my head off and stop me from other jobs. He has done it a couple of times. Kevin has definitely got a couple of cease and desist letters from my attorney.”
He added that Williams — whom friends have described as being totally under the control of her husband, who manages all of her affairs — hasn’t spoken to him since, and even denied knowing who he was during an interview with Elvis Duran.
We can’t say we’re surprised.
