Wendy Williams says that she has regained control of her career since filing for divorce from her estranged husband and former manager Kevin Hunter. Wendy filed for divorce from Hunter earlier this year after reports hit that Hunter fathered a child with longtime mistress Sharina Hudson.
During a panel at Black Enterprise's FWD Conference last week, the talk show host said, “Now, the difference in my business is that it used to be Kev and the team show up and then Kev wouldn’t bring me in until he knew, ‘OK, the deal’s done. Now it’s time for you to meet the people.' Not now. I want to be in the first conversation of the deal and I want to be in every meeting until the deal is done. Now that’s the way I roll.”
During the conference, she also discussed the importance of not rushing to become a parent in your 20s. She explained, “Shout out to all the parents, I’m a parent, too. But you’ve got to slow down on having these kids when you’re 22, 23, 24. You use your 20s to be selfish for yourself, grow up, grow your business. … kids are an obligation and that obligation will slow you down.”
Wendy and Kevin were married for over two decades.
