Talk show host Wendy Williams no longer has to worry about Kevin Hunter playing a key role on her hit program. New reports claim the gossip queen’s estranged husband is no longer an executive producer.
According to reports, Hunter’s position has faded to black after maintaining exec producer credentials for over 10 years.
Wendy Williams is distancing herself from her estranged husband Kevin Hunter, both personally and professionally. A week after the host filed for divorce, a spokesperson for The Wendy Williams Show confirms to PEOPLE that Hunter will no longer executive produce Williams’ daily talk show. Hunter has held an executive producer title for the showsince it debuted in 2008 and the two also share a production company, Wendy Williams Productions. (People)
According to reports, Williams has at least three guards with her daily.
Sources connected to production tell TMZ … Wendy has retained 3 full-time security guards to stand watch while she preps for and shoots her daily talk show, on which Kevin is still an executive producer, if only temporarily. We’re told Wendy initially hired a personal security team about a week before she served him with divorce papers because there had been a number of blowups between them leading up to her filing. In at least one instance, our sources say things got so heated, Kevin had to be restrained.
Yesterday, New York rapper 50 Cent clowned Wendy’s former radio co-host Charlamagne Tha God for reaching out to her during her split.
A few nights ago, Charlamagne went to Instagram to show Wendy support and rip her estranged husband Kevin Hunter.
Earlier in the week, reports emerged about Williams handing her hubby the pink slip.
According to a DailyMail.com report published on Tuesday, Hunter is trying to save face as he was reportedly FIRED from his estranged wife’s show! The source said he has been axed as an executive producer on the hit daytime television show, as well as his role as Wendy’s manager. Additionally, he has reportedly been given 48 hours to remove his belongings from their marital home in Livingston, New Jersey as Wendy was seen apartment hunting in New York City on Tuesday.
