Wendy Williams‘ husband and manager Kevin Hunter has been an executive producer on his wife’s show since it debuted in 2008. But executives reportedly want him gone for the sake of the program, saying his presence is making Wendy and the entire crew “miserable.”
Wendy and Kevin have been married since 2007. The show was recently renewed through 2020.

“Show execs want her husband/manager fired from the show,” said our source. “Wendy is in FULL support of his exit amid their major marital problems. Things have gotten so bad that she is seriously considering filing for divorce.
Kevin makes all the decisions and has become more and more controlling as the show has become a success,” one show insider tells Confidenti@l. “He insists that all show questions be run by him.”
Hunter has had Williams change her cell phone number so she is not as accessible to the many staffers on the show.
“He’s also hired her a new driver, who reports to him,” says our source.
Things have gotten so intense at the show that producers have been warned that all scripts must go to Hunter before Williams can even read them. And Hunter must approve all the ideas for segments and celebrity guest bookings.
“Wendy is smart. No one can understand why she does not tell him to f? off,” adds our source. “He is making everyone’s lives miserable and is causing problems on an otherwise great show.”
