Report: Bad News for Wendy Williams and Her Husband

Trouble in talk show paradise.

According to reports, things aren't looking that great for The Wendy Williams Show as the talk show host and her husband's marriage, as well as his relationship with the show's execs, is a bit strained. In fact, the heads of the talk show want him fired, and Wendy's reportedly on board.

Love B. Scott reports that a source revealed that Kevin Hunter, Wendy's husband, has been working as an executive producer since the show's first season, but after the recent firings, execs believe he should be the next to go.

"Show execs want her husband/manager fired from the show," the source said. "Wendy is in FULL support of his exit amid their major marital problems. Things have gotten so bad that she is seriously considering filing for divorce."

The source went on to say that Kevin's involvement in the show is making Wendy and the crew "miserable."

"Kevin makes all the decisions and has become more and more controlling as the show has become a success," the insider said. "He insists that all show questions be run by him."

He has also reportedly been taking care of all logistics of the show, overstepping his wife in many of those instances.

"Things have gotten so intense at the show that producers have been warned that all scripts must go to Hunter before Williams can even read them," the insider revealed. "And Hunter must approve all the ideas for segments and celebrity guest bookings."
