Wendy Williams reportedly rehired her ex-husband Kevin Hunter Sr. after her daytime talk show was cancelled.

Wendy’s former friend, actress/comedienne Sherri Shepherd will host her own daytime talk show, Sherri, in Wendy’s time slot.

Insiders claim Wendy is considering legal action because she feels betrayed by her producers and Shepherd.

Additionally, Wendy’s ex, Kevin, is suing Debmar-Mercury for terminating him as executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show after he cheated on Wendy and fathered a child with his longtime mistress.

The strange turn of events occurred after Wendy announced she would return to her purple chair after taking time off for health reasons. That’s when Debmar-Mercury announced the show will end for good in June.

A desperate Wendy rehired Kevin to manage her business affairs.

“Hunter was one of the reasons behind the Wendy William Show’s tremendous success and everything seemed to go south after he left,” Kevin’s attorney, Abe George, told Page Six.

“Mr. Hunter was unlawfully terminated solely due to his marital status to Wendy, which is contrary to human rights laws in NYC.”

Wendy and Kevin finalized their divorce in Jan. 2020.

Wendy cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce action which she filed in April 2019.


She leaned heavily on her only child, Kevin Hunter Jr., for emotional support.

After finalizing their divorce, Wendy, 57, paid Kevin $250,000 to help him and his mistress find new living arrangements, Page Six reported.

Kevin, 49, also received an undisclosed lump sum from Wendy, and a modest severance payment.

Wendy, who is quickly running out of cash, is battling Wells Fargo Bank to release $3 million contained in a frozen account.

Wells Fargo froze the account after reports that she was “mentally unfit” and being taken advantage of by others.
