Wendy Williams reveals new details about marriage with Kevin Hunter in Biopic
A new Wendy Williams biopic, called Wendy Williams: The Movie, premieres on Lifetime on Saturday, and it promises to be amazing. Oh, and if you just can't get enough of Wendy, it's followed up by a documentary, titled Wendy Williams: What A Mess!.
Both movies, which were executive produced by Wendy herself, cover the highs and lows she’s experienced in her life. They also delve into her rocky marriage to ex-husband Kevin Hunter (played by Morocco Omari).
In the trailer for the biopic, Ciera Payton’s Wendy gives her husband a look while he chats up a woman in a club and then looks devastated as a voiceover says, "He’s having a baby with her." Cut to scenes of the two having intense arguments as Wendy says, "Before I had you, I had me. And not you, nor anyone else, have the power to take away my gifts."
There has been plenty of real-life drama surrounding Wendy’s former marriage. But who is her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, exactly? Here’s what you need to know.
Wendy and Kevin were married for over two decades.
The couple tied the knot in 1997 and divorced in 2019."I don't regret meeting Kevin," Wendy said during a panel to promote her movie, per People>>>P."I don't regret falling in love, I don't regret staying with him for all 25 years, 21 of them married."
He worked as a TV producer.
Well, this is awkward. Kevin worked as a producer for Wendy on her projects for several years, including the biography Queen of Media>>>P, TV docuseries the Wendy Williams Project>>>P, and The Wendy Williams Show>>>P, per IMDb>>>P. Kevin left The Wendy Williams Show in 2016.
Kevin and Wendy have one child together.
Wendy and Kevin welcomed their son, Kevin Hunter Jr., in 2000.
He’s a"serial" cheater, according to his ex-wife.
Wendy recently said during an interview on SiriusXM's The Jess Cagle Show that Kevin was a"serial cheat," adding that she knew he had affairs"almost since the beginning" of their relationship, including before they were married. Still, Wendy said,"I don't regret putting up with him for all 25 years."
