Despite her popularity, fans and followers often inquire about her private life, including her marital status and family.

Is Wendy Williams married?

The TV personality married her second husband, Kevin Hunter, in 1997, and they split more than two decades later.

Who is Wendy Williams husband Bert Girigorie?

Bert Girigorie, Wendy Williams’ first husband, played a brief role in her romantic history. The pair tied the knot in 1994 and split after five months of marriage, later finalizing their divorce about 18 months later.

While the details surrounding their relationship remain relatively private, Girigorie previously opened up about the daytime TV host’s “bizarre” behavior during their relationship in a 2019 interview with RadarOnline.

“It was very bizarre. She just turned into a different person. I don’t know what was going on,” he said of their relationship. “I didn’t understand a lot of things that she did. I didn’t understand what her motivations were.”

Girigorie says their marriage began to fall apart after they “had a big blowout, and the relationship became very strained.”

He went on to suggest that Williams’ behavior could have been linked to drug use. Williams, who has been open about the fact that she had an addiction to cocaine during the ’90s, apparently kept her drug use hidden from Girigorie.

“I know she said she was doing drugs but she kept that away from me,” he shared with the outlet. “I assumed that she was but I didn’t know anything about it.”

Who is Wendy Williams husband Kevin Hunter?

Williams and Hunter reportedly first met at a skating rink in 1994. Before meeting Wendy, Hunter owned a beauty parlor, while Wendy was quickly making a name for herself as a radio host.

About three years after meeting, Williams and Hunter got married on November 30, 1997.

Despite not having any prior television experience, Hunter became Wendy’s manager and production partner early in their relationship, eventually helping her launch The Wendy Williams Show in 2008 and serving as an executive producer.

They also worked together on a number of other projects, including the game show Love Triangle, for which Williams and Hunter served as co-executive producers.

During their marriage, Williams and Hunter welcomed a son, Kevin Hunter Jr., in August 2000.

The couple faced various ups and downs in their relationship as Hunter was involved in various cheating scandals.

Shortly after she gave birth to their son, Williams admitted she caught Hunter cheating when she overheard a late night phone call with his mistress.

In April 2019, Williams filed for divorce from Hunter after more than two decades of marriage. The split came after he fathered a child with another woman, which Williams confirmed in an interview with The New York Times.

The couple’s divorce was later finalized in January 2020. According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Williams and Hunter agreed to forgo alimony and sell their New Jersey home and share those proceeds.

The outlet also reported that Hunter would sign over his shares of Wendy Williams Productions to her and that she will get their joint bank account, while he will keep his cars and separate businesses.

How many children does Wendy Williams have?

Wendy Williams has one child, a son named Kevin Hunter Jr.

The former Wendy Williams Show host welcomed her first and only child, Kevin, 23, with her ex-husband Kevin Hunter in August 2000.

Before welcoming Kevin, Wendy experienced multiple miscarriages, including two that occurred in the second trimester.

In a trailer for Lifetime’s new two-part documentary, Where is Wendy Williams?, out on Feb. 24, the former TV personality’s family spoke up about their concerns for her well-being, including her son.

In a conversation with Kevin, Wendy said, “I want to be back on television.” However, her son appeared to be hesitant as to the status of her well-being.

Later in the trailer, Kevin added that even though his mom was eager to get back to work, he felt that anyone saying “yes” to her was only going to make her condition worse.

“My mom, she always talks about how she wants to work, but I feel as though she’s worked enough,” he said. “She has people around her that are ‘yes people’ and allowing this to continue.”

Kevin also expressed discontent with Wendy’s guardian, sharing that he was unsure they were acting in her best interests.

“I feel like the guardian has not done a good job of protecting my mom,” he said.

Before the trailer concluded, Wendy said that while she loves fame, “family is everything. Everything.”
