‘The Wendy Williams Show’ has seen its fair share of shakeups this past year.
After news broke that several senior staff members were fired in the wake of Wendy’s HBCU/NAACP drama, sources exclusively tell lovebscott.com that show execs want Wendy’s own husband & manager Kevin FIRED from the show — and that Wendy’s okay with it!
Kevin has been working as an Executive Producer on the ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ since it started.
“Show execs want her husband/manager fired from the show,” said our source. “Wendy is in FULL support of his exit amid their major marital problems. Things have gotten so bad that she is seriously considering filing for divorce.”
According to previous reports , Kevin’s influence on the show is making the entire crew — including Wendy — ‘miserable’.
“Kevin makes all the decisions and has become more and more controlling as the show has become a success,” one show insider tells [email protected] “He insists that all show questions be run by him.”
Hunter has had Williams change her cell phone number so she is not as accessible to the many staffers on the show.
“He’s also hired her a new driver, who reports to him,” says our source.
Things have gotten so intense at the show that producers have been warned that all scripts must go to Hunter before Williams can even read them. And Hunter must approve all the ideas for segments and celebrity guest bookings.
“Wendy is smart. No one can understand why she does not tell him to f? off,” adds our source. “He is making everyone’s lives miserable and is causing problems on an otherwise great show.”
Who knows — maybe removing Kevin from the business side of things will help the two focus on their relationship at home. They’ve been married since 1997.
‘The Wendy Williams Show’ has already been renewed through 2020, so if things are really as bad as we hear then we hope they figure out what’s best for everyone involved rather quickly.
