Wendy Williams Bio: Age, Parents, Husband, Children, Net Worth.

Wendy Williams is an American former broadcaster, media personality, and writer. From 2008 to 2021, she hosted the nationally syndicated television talk show The Wendy Williams Show.

Before television, Williams was a radio DJ and host and quickly became known in New York City as a shock jock.

She gained notoriety for her on-air spats with celebrities and was the subject of the 2006 VH1 reality television series The Wendy Williams Experience, which broadcast events surrounding her radio show.

Williams has accomplished a lot in her career, including writing books, appearing in movies and TV shows, touring with her comedy show, and creating her own fashion, jewelry, and wig lines.

She was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2009. As a tribute to her, the council of Asbury Park, New Jersey renamed the street where she grew up “Wendy Williams Way” on her 50th birthday.

Wendy Williams parents

Wendy was born to Shirley (née Skinner) and Thomas Dwayne Williams.

Shirley was a special education teacher while Thomas was a teacher and school principal who in 1969 became the first black school administrator in Red Bank, New Jersey.

Williams has two siblings: an older sister named Wanda Finnie and a younger brother named Thomas Williams Jr.

Wendy Williams husband

Wendy had two marriages in her life, the first one with Bert Girigorie, a salesman she met while working at a radio station in New York City, which ended in a separation after 5 months and a year and a half of divorce proceedings.

Later, she married Kevin Hunter on November 30, 1997, and they had a son, Kevin Jr., in 2000. Kevin became Wendy’s manager but was allegedly unfaithful, controlling, and abusive.

In 2019, rumors circulated that Kevin welcomed a baby with a mistress, and Wendy revealed she was living in a sober house due to a past cocaine addiction.

Wendy filed for divorce from Kevin in April 2019 after 22 years of marriage.

Wendy Williams children

Williams has one child, a son named Kevin Hunter Jr. He was born in August 2000 during Wendy’s marriage to Kevin Hunter.

Wendy Williams net worth

Wendy Williams’ net worth has decreased significantly and is now reported to be $500,000 as of 2024, a stark contrast to her previously reported net worth of $20 million in 2023.

This decline in net worth is attributed to the cancellation of her talk show in 2022.

Recent revelations from Williams herself reveal that her bank accounts were frozen due to allegations of unsound mind by her former financial adviser, and she has since been appointed a financial guardian.

“I have no money, and I’m gonna tell you something,” Williams says in the trailer for the four-part docuseries. “If it happens to me, it could happen to you.”

Her claim offers just a glimpse into the complexities of her financial situation and continues to raise some major questions about the true extent of her access to her wealth today.

For now, Williams continues to live under a court-appointed guardian, who remains in charge of her financial affairs.
