Wendy Williams is begging for her estranged husband Kevin Hunter back – and it’s all to save her talk show! RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the reason Williams wants Hunter to be her business manager again is to save The Wendy Williams Show from cancellation.
“She’s begging her husband to come back to save her show,” a source told Radar. “Wendy is reading all the reports about her show ending after next season. She’s hearing her staff is looking for new jobs. She sees Kevin as the solution.”
Williams, 55, is “deeply insecure about her own success.”
“Kevin was with her from day one,” the insider said. “She has never made a big successful business decision without him and now feels everything falling apart. She will do anything to save her show, even getting back with him.”
Daily Mail was the first to report that Williams and Hunter have had several conversations about their professional relationship. The two decided Hunter could stay as her business manager to protect the “legacy” they built with their production company and foundation.
“Wendy and Kevin’s marriage might be over but they still have love for one another and she realizes that when it comes to business they had a great partnership, there was definitely magic there,” a source told the site. “Wendy has come around to the idea that it makes more sense for Kevin to stick around, it’s best for her business and career and for their family.”
While Hunter, 47, is “willing to work” with his ex-wife, he wants to make sure anything he decides to do is in his “best interests” before they agree.
