Wendy Williams' Ex Husband Says Producers Did Not Support Wendy's Recovery Efforts

Back in 2019 Wendy Williams checked herself into a sober living house, just weeks after her husband, Kevin Hunter's, affair and secret side baby became public [click here if you missed that]. 

In a recent interview Kevin reveals Debmar-Mercury was not onboard with sending Wendy to rehab despite her obvious substance abuse problem...

Kevin Hunter tells Page Six exclusively that Debmar-Mercury didn’t want to engage in any activity that would take Williams away from her iconic purple chair.
“Debmar would not support Wendy’s recovery efforts with the family,” Hunter says. “They would not sign off on anything that would’ve helped her recovery efforts.”
Hunter, 50, further claims that Williams’ family attended an intervention of sorts with Debmar-Mercury in which he and the group discussed how to further aid Williams in her battle with alcoholism.
“They sat in a meeting with her whole family, including her now-deceased mom, and would not sign off on the recovery efforts that would’ve helped Wendy also get well and live and be sober. They basically said, ‘If you don’t stop drinking, you’re going to lose the show.’”
The intervention took place about a month and a half before Hunter would go on to welcome a child with Sharina Hudson and after Williams worked full-time while living in a sober house. But a source close to the show tells Page Six that Williams was not 100 percent upon departing the facility.
“It’s safe to say that when she came out of the sober house before [she divorced Hunter] that she still wasn’t capable of making all the decisions,” the source says. “She wasn’t capable then, but she was hiding it.”
