Wendy Williams is peddling a tell-all, no holds barred interview to TV networks. According to London’s Daily Mail, Wendy wants the special to be an hour long, but a network source told DailyMailTV that an hourlong prime-time slot might be a deal breaker for a TV network.
“An hour of Wendy time is a lot of time. Gayle King didn’t even give R Kelly an hour,” a source said.
The single mom is pitching her tell-all story to all the major players, including ABC, NBC and Oprah’s OWN. The networks are considering her offer of an emotional, tearful, no holds barred interview, according to several network sources.
Wendy is in the midst of a bitter public divorce from her cheating husband Kevin Hunter, 47, who fathered a love child with his longtime mistress Sharina Hudson, 34. The baby girl was born in a Philadelphia hospital in March.
Wendy reportedly tolerated her husband’s philandering ways for nearly 2 decades before she filed for divorce earlier this year. Wendy allegedly told Kevin she drew the line on outside babies.
Wendy, 54, and her son Kevin Hunter Jr., 19, were seen holding hands a day after his arrest for assaulting his father.
The daytime TV host and Kevin Jr. were all smiles as they left her Chelsea studios with bodyguards a day after his arrest for allegedly punching his father and breaking his nose.
Kevin Jr. was arrested early Wednesday after his father put him in a headlock in a store parking lot in West Orange, New Jersey. A source told Page Six he spent less than an hour behind bars before being released from custody.
Kevin Jr. and his famous mom then flew to Chicago, Ill. where they attended the Sweets & Snacks Expo on Wednesday.
A rep for the snack convention tells Page Six Kevin Jr. did not participate in any events and was solely a guest of his mom’s, as she was there representing the brand Candy Pop – which was a sponsor of the soon-to-be-dissolved Hunter Foundation.
The fight started after Kevin Sr. reportedly urged his son “to carve his own path to success” and stop looking to his mom for “handouts.”
The argument continued into Wednesday, when Kevin Jr. criticized his dad for requesting spousal and child support from Wendy.
The police were called, and Kevin Jr. was taken into custody after cops observed the elder Kevin’s bloody nose.
Kevin Sr. declined to press charges against his son.
On Wednesday, Kevin Sr. told TMZ, “I love my son very much and I will not be pursuing this matter legally. Things are not always how they appear.”
