Wendy Williams says she knew exactly what her estranged husband Kevin Hunter was up to during their 22-year marriage.
In a new interview with Andy Cohen, the 55-year-old talk show host revealed that she was very much so aware of her husband's longtime extramarital affair before finally deciding to file for divorce in April.
"I knew a lot of things for years," she replied when Andy asked if she knew about Kevin's "double life," referring to her husband's longtime mistress, who reportedly welcomed his child just before Wendy's divorce filing. The Wendy Williams Show host added that she found it "very difficult" to not speak out about her personal drama on her talk show earlier this year when news of Kevin's mistress' alleged pregnancy. However, Wendy said she knew she’d eventually tell her truth, but she first "had to get my ducks in a row."
Wendy went on to explain that she stayed in her marriage because she didn't want to disrupt their son Kevin Jr.'s life. "It wasn’t fair to him," she shared. "You know, I’m not going to grab his hand and flee the scene and move zip codes. You know, now he has to move high schools and stuff like that. He’s just making friends. So now he’s away in college, and the person I am now is very single because he’s not living with me. He goes to school in Miami."
Andy followed-up by asking if the photos of Kevin with another woman were never published, if she'd still be married to him, and Wendy made it very clear that she would have still filed for divorce, saying, "I can take a lot, but I'm not raising a family."
Later in the interview, Wendy addressed those photos of her kissing Meek Mill on the cheek at Rick Ross' album release party last week. "I wasn’t making out with Meek Mill, I was whispering in his ear and I kissed him, you know, goodbye because he performed at my son’s black mitzvah and he also autographed a picture for my son," she explained. "I’m not feeling for Meek Mill and he’s not feeling for me, you know what I mean? But all over the internet right now it’s saying we have a thing for each other."
