Wendy Williams’ divorce from Kevin Hunter is still very fresh. The TV personality recently broke down in tears while discussing the breakup.

Wendy and Kevin were together for 22 years. Their relationship was plagued by rumors of drama, including allegations that Kevin cheated on Wendy and got another woman pregnant. He was not only her husband and the father of her child but also her manager.

Since the split was made official, the drama has continued to unfold. Wendy reportedly asked Kevin to pay child and spousal support for their 18-year-old son, Kevin Junior, who was arrested for attacking his dad in May.

But sometimes, it’s the more mundane details of divorce that really break the heart.

Wendy opened up on the subject during an interview with Sirius XM’s Urban View. Interviewer Karen Hunter (no relation to Kevin) asked if Wendy had started to deal with the often overlooked yet necessary steps of ending a marriage, such as changing her legal name.

“No, my name is Wendy Hunter. That’s my son’s name, and you can’t take away twenty — ” Wendy had to pause as she fought back tears.

“So who is Wendy, right now?” Karen asked.

Despite her tears, Wendy’s answer was optimistic.

“Happy,” Wendy said. “I’m happy, I’m healthy, and I am at peace with the world and everyone around me.”

That wasn’t the last time Wendy became tearful during the interview. Watch her emotional interview in the video.
