Wendy Williams' ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, is giving Kenya Moore's ex, Marc Daly, some competition.

Daly, who recently filed for divorce from Moore, owns and operates a restaurant in Brooklyn.

Now comes word, that Hunter is opening an Italian restaurant in downtown Brooklyn named Loreto.

"Time to work on MY LEGACY!!" he wrote in the caption of a video of the restaurant's exterior on Twitter.com. "For a kid from Brownsville Brooklyn this is a dream come true. To be apart [sic] of an amazing team to create something so extraordinary."

"I look forward to nothing but success," Hunter added. "Continue to thank God for the blessings."

Sources say the seed money for the new restaurant came from his ex-wife and silent partner, Wendy, 56. The two were spotted having lunch together after he attended Wendy's mother's funeral.

Hunter, 48, described Loreto as "exquisite high end Italian cuisine" and said he will host a soft opening on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14.

Hunter's announcement comes days after Williams' documentary, "Wendy Williams: What a Mess!," premiered to high ratings on Lifetime Television.

Wendy Williams aired out her family's dirty laundry during Monday's segment of The Wendy Williams Show.

Over the weekend, Thomas Williams Jr., Wendy's older brother, accused her of skipping their mother's funeral and having lunch with her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter Sr., who cheated on her throughout most of their marriage.

Wendy was shocked and annoyed that her brother forced her to be the subject of her own "Hot Topics."

In early December, the talk show host revealed her mother Shirley Williams had passed away in early 2020, but Wendy waited "many, many months" to causally announce her mother's death to her audience.

According to her brother, Wendy's son, Kevin Hunter Jr., and his father attended the funeral, but Wendy, 56, callously skipped her own mother's funeral without explanation, then had lunch with Hunter Sr.

"My mother always said stand by your family and your sisters," he said. "But what makes somebody not go to their mother's funeral? I don't understand not giving a salute to the one person who was always there and showed you support. I don't understand how a person cannot go to a funeral and hold up the one person or the family member that you do have, the parent that you do have left, and just move on. Keep it moving. I don't understand how to keep loving somebody who would cause that type of pain."

Tommy thanked his former brother-in-law, Kevin, for attending his mom's funeral.

"Wendy's ex Kevin came out to support the family and I appreciate that. There's no malice that I have towards him, will never be there. He made a choice, it was a poor choice and it was the one that broke the camel's back -- but I appreciate him coming to the funeral for my mother."

Wendy showed more emotion attacking her brother on Monday than she did announcing her own mother's passing.

"Tommy, let me tell you something right now, all you are is my brother. You better stop talking the way you're talking because it is now dripping onto my comment page. See I wasn't searching for Tommy."

She said her brother portrayed her as cold and unemotional -- when she is none of those things -- and he'd better stop right now or she would spill his and his wife's tea on her show.

She even threw shade by dropping the word "pegging" while chastising her brother.

Webster's Dictionary defines "pegging" as "a sexual practice in which a woman performs anal sex on a man by penetrating his anus with a strap-on dildo."

"He is pegging me to be a person that I am not. Honey [lip smack], you don't want me to start pegging you to be the person that you are [lip smack] with full blown receipts. I could fill the audience with receipts..."

She added, "You are my brother. Let's keep it that way. If you wanna talk on the internet, then you talk about the things that you think you know about yourself. You don't wanna talk about the things that I know about you [lip smack] for sure.

NeNe Leakes blames Wendy Williams' estranged husband Kevin Hunter for sabotaging her talk show.

NeNe and Wendy have been tight as a hand in glove for the past few months. But NeNe believes Wendy's ex prevented her from landing her own talk show that might compete with Wendy's show.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is concerned about her immediate future amid rumors that Bravo TV bosses are trying to cut her loose.

At 52, the former stripper knows she is not the ratings draw she once was. She reportedly retained celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom to file an undisclosed lawsuit.

During NeNe's visit to The Breakfast Club, co-host Charlamagne the God asked NeNe about rumors that she was in talks to host her own talk show similar to her friend Wendy's popular show.

When asked if Wendy or Kevin blocked the show, NeNe replied, "I think it was her husband."

She added Kevin was "never nice" to her and he didn't want her around. She also revealed she didn't bring up her suspicions with her bestie, Wendy.

It seems NeNe doesn't want to believe Wendy also had a hand in her talk show's demise.

Watch the interview below.

Wendy Williams is officially a single mother. The 55-year-old daytime talk show host finalized her divorce from cheating husband Kevin Hunter Sr.

Wendy suffered public humiliation when Kevin's mistress, Sharina Hudson, delivered a baby girl last year. After denying his cheating ways for years, Wendy finally filed for divorce after checking out of an in-patient alcohol rehab facility in New York.

In court documents obtained by Page Six, Wendy cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce action which she filed in April 2019.

Both Wendy and Kevin agreed to forego alimony in exchange for keeping a $1 million life insurance policy that will go to Kevin if she dies an untimely death.

Wendy retained the right to reduce the amount on a yearly basis. She is also responsible for covering health insurance premiums for Kevin and his infant daughter.

Wendy and Kevin agreed to split the proceeds from the sale of their Livingston, New Jersey mansion which is still on the market for $1.7 million. Wendy listed the house last year for $1.9 million.

After moving into a luxury Manhattan penthouse last year, Wendy paid Kevin $250,000 to help him and his mistress find new living arrangements, Page Six reports.

Kevin, 49, also received an undisclosed lump sum from Wendy, and a severance payment from Wendy, Inc. He will maintain ownership of his businesses and his cars, including a Ferrari and Rolls Royce SUV.

They each agreed to pay their own legal fees.

Wendy Williams and her ex Kevin Hunter have reached a financial agreement regarding his living arrangements. She must pay her cheating ex $250,000 to find another home, Page Six reports.

$250,000 won't buy much of a house in the wealthy enclaves of New York and New Jersey. But Hunter can use the cash as a down payment on a suitable place for himself and his baby mama Sharina Hudson.

Page Six reports the former couple reached a financial agreement as part of their divorce proceedings, according to new court documents.

Williams must pay Hunter $250,000 so that he can "secure new living arrangements," in a city where a swanky apartment goes for $15,000 a month. Hunter was ordered to vacate their marital home in Livingston, New Jersey, which was put up for sale over the summer.

Wendy, 55, filed for divorce from Hunter after she learned that he fathered a baby girl with Hudson.

It took years for Wendy to finally admit her husband was cheating on her. Even then she chose to stay with him as he maintained two separate households on her coin.

Wendy recently took a jab at Hudson, who she says is "miserable" now that Hunter's income has taken a hit.

"Life is not what you think it is behind the scenes, trust me," Wendy said during Wednesday's Hot Topics segment. "Homegirl is miserable," said Wendy before imitating the woman rocking a crying baby. "That's what you get!"

Wendy wished Hunter well with his "new family" while insisting she couldn't get divorced from him quick enough.

"I want a divorce like yesterday, I want a divorce two months ago, three months ago. Whenever I found out, four months ago," she said.

Despite her newfound independence, Wendy apparently still has the hots for her ex and they remain friends.

"I want a divorce, and I want to be friends with Kevin. I mean, and not because we have a son but because that was real love. I still love him just not in that way."
 

Wendy Williams is speaking out about being a single mom after filing for divorce from cheating husband, Kevin Hunter. Like any good mom Wendy says she stayed in her failed marriage for the sake of their only child, 20-year-old son Kevin Hunter Jr.
