And it is reasons just like this one, why I would never want to work with someone I am dating or am married to. According to the good folks over at LoveBScott.com, media maven Wendy Williams and her husband/manager, Kevin Hunter have been having some problems as of lately and show execs are ready to hand him his pink slip – and Wendy is too!
According to LoveBScott.com
Kevin has been working as an Executive Producer on the ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ since it started.
“Show execs want her husband/manager fired from the show,” said our source. “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.”
According to several previous reports, Kevin Hunter’s influence on the show is making the entire crew — including Wendy in one word — ‘miserable’.
“Kevin makes all the decisions and has become more and more controlling as the show has become a success,” one show insider tells Confidential. “He insists that all show questions be run by him.”
Hunter has had Williams change her cell phone number so she is not as accessible to the many staffers on the show.
“He’s also hired her a new driver, who reports to him,” says our source. 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. And Hunter must approve all the ideas for segments and celebrity guest bookings.
“Wendy is smart. No one can understand why she does not tell him to [expletive] off,” adds our source. “He is making everyone’s lives miserable and is causing problems on an otherwise great show.”
This duo has been married since 1997 and they have gone through a little bit of everything together from Wendy’s own former drug addiction, Kevin’s infidelity and more. Maybe removing him from the workplace and actually getting themselves some marriage counseling can save their union. Who knows?
