Andy Cohen Shares How He Really Feels About Wendy Williams' Divorce
The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host weighed in on his pal's very public divorce from Kevin Hunter.
Much has been said about Wendy Williams' recently announced divorce from Kevin Hunter, and now Andy Cohen is talking (or at least tweeting) about it, too. When one of Andy's followers asked him what he thought about the latest development in his friend's life, he tweeted, "Happy for Wendy."
We can see why Williams' gesture toward moving on would make those who care about her happy. The talk-show host has clearly been in a dark place as she's struggled with sobriety and handled her husband's alleged not-so-private affair (and new baby!) with reported mistress Sharina Hudson.
But even though she's moving on from her marriage, reports that Williams is dating again might not be exactly true. Though Williams had joked on her show that radio personality Charlamagne tha God had asked her out on a date, he shared what actually happened with Page Six.
"We just had a conversation," he said. "I’ve always had love for Wendy and we never had a reason not to communicate.”
He continued, "It’s not a date at all. "For me, [as] someone who used to be friends with Wendy, work with Wendy, and having a front-row seat to a lot of the abuse I saw her endure, I’m just happy that she’s finally free of that stuff ... I wish her the best. She’s got a lot of healing to do, and I’m all about healing and letting go of toxic people in your life. I think when you let go of toxic people in your life, that’s a big step in loving yourself, so I hope she keeps going."
Though Charlamagne didn't detail the type of "abuse" in Williams' marriage, it is notable that she reportedly has extra security on set, where Hunter was an executive producer.
Meanwhile, Hunter broke his silence on the divorce on April 16. In a statement, he said, "I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs. No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine. I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you."
