Wendy Williams’ estranged husband Kevin Hunter is getting the boot from Wendy’s life AND her livelihood.
Now that she served him with divorce papers, Kevin’s job as executive producer on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ is coming to an end.
Our sources say the deal-breaker for Kevin Hunter is not about his duties on the show … it’s about Wendy’s mental and physical health. We’re told she’s doing great now, but our sources say it’s apparent Kevin’s presence on the set causes her stress.
Case in point … a week ago there was a major blowup on the set between Wendy and Kevin. We’re told security had to step in between them and Kevin was temporarily removed from the area. And, our sources say there have been several other blowups as well.
We’re told Wendy and Kevin are close to reaching “an accord” whereby he’d step down as executive producer.
As for Kevin — who allegedly just fathered a baby with his mistress — he released a statement Tuesday, saying, “I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans.”
Kevin goes on to say … “I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.”

“28 years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams. At the time, I didn’t realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world. I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally. I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans.
“I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs. No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine. I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you.”
