Wendy Williams and Howard Stern End Feud as She Admits Her Heart Was 'Broken' After His Scathing Rant
Looks like Wendy Williams and Howard Stern have patched things up. Their public spat began in March, when 54-year-old Williams commented on her daytime talk show, The Wendy Williams Show, that 65-year-old Stern had gone "so Hollywood" when discussing his new book, Howard Stern Comes Again. "Howard is so Hollywood right now," Williams said on air. "And Howard, I love you. but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything you say is so predictable. Every story is gonna be about, you know 'Oh, I love this one and then we went on their yacht.
The end of daytime TV gossip queen Wendy Williams‘ 21-year marriage hasn’t been short on drama.
The Wendy Williams Show host filed for divorce from husband and longtime manager Kevin Hunter in April, shortly after he allegedly fathered a child with his mistress — and following her announcement that she’d been living in a sober house to cope with her past addiction to cocaine. And late Tuesday night, their 18-year-old son, Kevin Jr., was arrested after allegedly getting into a physical altercation with his dad in West Orange, New Jersey.
Montel Williams Says Wendy Williams Has ‘Belittled’ People on Her Show
Ouch. Fellow TV host Montel Williams had some choice words for Wendy Williams. The 62-year-old The Montel Williams Show alum spoke with Us Weekly at the 34th annual Ellis Island Medal of Honors on Saturday, May 11, about the Ask Wendy author’s rough time as of late. When asked whether he had advice for The Wendy Williams Show host, 54, the essence of his feedback for her wasn’t positive. “Wendy’s show is so much different than mine, where she does a program that literally has for years now, honestly, belittled and put down people who are going through what she’s going through,” Montel told Us exclusively.
Now, a source tells PEOPLE that the fight between father and son was about the divorce but had nothing to do with spousal support, as reported elsewhere. The source adds that Hunter, 46, believes Williams, 54, is poisoning Kevin Jr. against him and says they had a good relationship before the parents’ marriage fell apart.
Kevin Jr. was processed and released by West Orange Police Department the same evening and was not taken to county jail, a spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey confirmed to PEOPLE. Hunter has said he is not pressing charges.
Wendy Williams dissolves substance abuse foundation
Wendy is distancing herself from all things involving her estranged husband Kevin Hunter.
“I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally, “said in a statement to TMZ. “Things are not always how they appear.”
A source with knowledge of the incident told PEOPLE that Hunter was trying to calm his son down during the argument and keep the situation from escalating by placing him in the headlock.
PEOPLE is out to reps for Williams and Hunter.
Kevin Jr. has been spending time with his mom since the arrest, joining Williams at the Sweets and Snacks Expo to announce her partnership with SNAX-Sational Brands to provide backpacks for children in New York City homeless shelters. And on Thursday, mother and son attended a gala in Washington, D.C.
Besides focusing on charity work and TV show, Williams is busy reacquainting herself with the single life after moving from the family’s New Jersey home to New York City.
“I am working on my divorce pleasantly,” she said on the May 14 episode of her show . “I am a single woman, running around New York. I go out a lot, I’m a good time girl I like to have fun.”
“I don’t have a boyfriend, but I must admit I am rediscovering my love of men,” she added. “I do date and I date pretty often.”
Earlier in the month, she notably criticized women who try to seduce married men.
“There are a lot of women with no respect for a marriage,” she said on-air “You know what I’m saying? A lot of women who know your man is married and will have the nerve to be right up under him, right under your nose.”
New drama erupts amid Wendy Williams-Kevin Hunter divorce.
The talk show host's recent comments alleging her ex had a baby with his mistress and kept Wendy 'cooped up' at home have not gone over well.
