Wendy Williams opens up to 'Extra's Billy Bush about divorce ahead of Lifetime documentary


Wendy Williams is breaking down her life in her own words.

The television host got candid with “Extra’s” Billy Bush ahead of her new Lifetime documentary titled “Wendy Williams: What a Mess.”

“It was a long time coming, and I'm glad I was able to tell my own story in my own truth,” she told Billy about shedding some truth on her life.

One of the main focuses of the documentary will be her relationship with ex-husband Kevin Hunter.

When Billy asked if the divorce was a “cathartic” experience, Wendy clarified that it was “cathartic to get him out of my life, to divorce him.”

She added: “Kevin cheated on me while I was pregnant with my son… and I found out and I could've divorce him then, but I said, ‘No, I have a son and I'm not going to have any more children’… I didn’t want him to leave me by myself.”

“And I knew Billy, it was not till death do us part,” she explained, adding, “Kevin was a serial cheater, Kevin had different mistresses… This last one was the one he had the longest term relationship with.”

She also explained that Hunter is “getting smaller” in her life when Billy asked whether she still gets emotional talking about the breakup or if it’s her rear-view mirror.

“I've got a new life. I've got new boyfriends to make… and things to do,” she explained.

She continued: “I don't regret falling in love with Kevin… and I definitely don't regret getting the best divorce attorney I could… and fighting tooth and nail to get everything out of that divorce.”

Despite the breakup, Wendy said that she hasn’t blocked his number and even revealed that he still calls from time to time.

“He’s my son’s father… He came to my mother’s funeral,” she noted.

Wendy also opened up about her addiction and overcoming body images issues.

She even told Billy that she would eventually “love to get married again.”

“Wendy Williams: What a Mess” premieres Saturday, January 30, at 10 p.m. on Lifetime.
