The new Lifetime docuseries which focuses on talk show queen Wendy Williams health struggles and alcohol abuse is not going over well with some of the people who love her …. including her ex-husband Kevin Hunter.
Kevin and Wendy may have gone through a divorce – but it wasn’t bitter and Media Take Out can confirm that Kevin still loves Wendy and wants to see Wendy succeed.
Now people close to Kevin are speaking out to The Sun – a UK based newspaper – and they say that Kevin felt blindsided and furious upon learning about the new Lifetime documentary.
An insider in Wendy’s inner circle exclusively told The U.S. Sun that Kevin, 51, is deeply disappointed in the project.
“Kevin was shocked to see his ex-wife portrayed in such a negative light in the Lifetime trailer.
“He was also totally blindsided that their son, Kevin Jr, ended up signing onto the project after he initially said he wanted nothing to do with it.”
The insider noted that Wendy’s ex was dead-set against the documentary from day one, as he firmly believed it would only further diminish his ex-wife’s legacy.
Kevin, known to friends as Big Kev, told close associates that he found the scene in the trailer showing Wendy, 59, yelling over a bottle of vodka and appearing disoriented in the middle of New York City were “very sad” to see.
The father-of-two was also sorry that his son, Kevin Jr, ultimately signed onto the project.
“Little Kev was repeatedly advised that it was a bad look to be involved in this project and that it was not in his best interest to have his name attached to it,” the insider added.
