Weeks after reports of Kevin Hunter cheating on his wife, talk show host Wendy Williams, broke the internet, the media maven has reportedly found the source of the story, and it’s none other than her own staffers.
According to a new report from TheJasmineBrand, Williams traced the “made up” story back to disgruntled employees, and she has been handing out pink slips left and right since.
“Wendy found out who was behind the story and they were actually people from her staff,” shared the source. “She fired anyone who was connected to the story because it was not only fake, but it showed how disloyal they were to her. She can’t trust someone who would do that to her. She fired a number of her staff, including some producers.”
Hunter was accused of carrying on a decade-long affair with now-32-year-old massage therapist Sharina Hudson, reportedly moving her out of his two-bedroom condo and into a $765,000 home just nine miles away from his family’s estate in Morristown, N.J.
Williams addressed the rumor the following day, making herself the “Hot Topic,” for a change.
“It’s some sort of weird story going around the internet regarding my husband,” she said.
“Without giving the story too much attention, you can believe what you want, but …” then the host held up her left hand to show her wedding ring.
“I stand by my guy,” she declared. “We commuted this morning. All is well in Hunterville. Don’t believe the hype, and if there was hype, believe me, you—I would let you know.”
