RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the daytime host's estranged husband is currently looking for a “new Wendy” to develop a TV show around.
As Radar readers know, Hunter is not only Williams' husband of more than two decades, he’s also her manager and production partner, and famously helped launch The Wendy Williams Show.
“Kevin believes he is the brains of the operation,” a source told Radar, and is confident that he will be able to find a new, younger lady to turn into a star.”
Williams, 54, filed for divorce just last week, but Radar has revealed she’s already having second thoughts.
“Kevin and his friends are putting a lot of pressure on her not to go through with the divorce,” another insider confided to Radar. “She’s terrified of being alone, and insecure about her success without him.”
Hunter once owned a beauty parlor, and had no previous television experience before meeting Williams at a skating rink in 1994.
The couple married three years later in 1997, and welcomed their son, Kevin Jr., in 2000.
In 2011, Hunter helped create Williams’ self-titled show.
But sources say don’t count him out of the TV world.
“Kevin struck gold with the Wendy show, and thinks he can do it again,” an insider told Radar. “He has already reached out to a few young radio personalities that he wants to manage and develop.”
