Wendy Williams appeared before an audience on her TV show Tuesday–with her wedding ring prominently displayed on her hand–saying she will “stand by her man” despite the recently revealed affair between her husband and a 32-year-old massage therapist.
Williams’ statement comes after the Daily Mail revealed that her husband, Kevin Hunter, was in the midst of a 10-year-long affair with 32-year-old massage therapist Sharina Hudson, and had moved the mistress into a $765,000 home just nine miles down the road from the New Jersey mansion he shares with Williams.
The daytime TV star was spotted making her way to work Tuesday hiding behind huge sunglasses and wearing a bathrobe and furry slippers.
On her show, Williams looked put-together and confident as she held up her sparkling wedding ring and told the cheering crowd: “You can believe what you want. I stand by my guy.”
However, Sharina Hudson has been spotted wearing an engagement ring, so Williams’ attitude on the matter is bewildering.
Williams wore a tight pink dress as she waltzed on stage before a live audience.
She opened Tuesday’s show by addressing the revelation that her husband had a mistress, saying, “It’s weird, doing hot topics and being a hot topic.”
“I love the attention. There’s this weird story going around regarding my husband. All you have to do is Google him and see the story.”
She continued, “You can believe what you want,” then paused, as she held up her large wedding ring and added, “I stand by my guy.”
Williams then proceeded through the rest of her show semi-normally, but alluded to the scandal once more, saying, “I didn’t get much sleep last night.”
On Monday afternoon, her spokesperson, Ronn Torossian, denied that Williams’ husband was having an affair.
“One plus one does not equal three. This woman is a friend of Mr. Hunter but ‘there is no there there,'” he said, referencing a well-known remark by Gertrude Stein in the 1937 movie, “Everybody’s Autobiography,” which means nothing significant exists.
However, the Daily Mail says Hunter is torn between the two women and that a split-up with Williams could derail her career. Hunter manages his TV-star wife’s career and runs a production company they jointly own.
The Daily Mail notes Hunter has been spending time with both women, going out on a date with Hudson just days after returning from a Barbados vacation with Williams.
