Wendy Williams hired a private investigator to follow husband Kevin Hunter

Wendy Williams hired a private investigator to spy on her then-husband.

The 56-year-old talk show host filed for divorce from Kevin Hunter in April 2019 after he fathered a child with another woman but she admitted she had known about his infidelity for some time but was ‘methodically planning’ the best way to leave her marriage.

‘There were secrets that I was keeping,’ the star told E! News’ Daily Pop. ‘It wasn’t about being not vulnerable. It was about waiting for the right time because I was methodically planning to get out of my marriage. I still played “I love you, I love you,” Wendy,’ said the former DJ.

‘This is what a smart girl does if she is playing the role of being the loving wife. In the meantime, you know, the [private investigator] was following them on vacation,’ she added.

‘The P.I. followed her to her GYN appointments. The P.I. ended up finding out that the girl was pregnant.’

The woman is Sharina Hudson.

According to Wendy, it was not the first time the woman had gotten pregnant but was the first baby she ‘was having with him.’

And the presenter was also reluctant to speak out at the time because of her and Kevin’s son, Kevin Jr., now 20.

She said: ‘I just let the headlines kind of speak for themselves.

‘I could not talk to you all about everything going on until I was able to sit down and talk with my son. And my ex-husband was acting out of order. So, you all didn’t know that, and I wasn’t going to talk about that stuff. I was going to save it for the movie.’

The story will play out in the upcoming Lifetime biopic Wendy Williams: The Movie and Wendy explained she agreed to the project because the time felt right, having previously rejected approaches from the network.

Asked why now, she said: ‘Because Lifetime came with the proposal that I wanted. Things just never worked out. But that was when I was still married. I’m in a different period in my life. Lifetime called. And I answered.’

Wendy named her former husband Kevin’s baby mama for the first time on her popular daytime show.

On Tuesday the host wore a bright yellow dress as she sipped her coffee and made the shocking comments on the program.

‘Welcome to Hot Topics, Sharina Hudson!’ said Williams. ‘Getting out of my car … with my money.’

Then she mentioned the baby Kevin had with massage therapist Sharina: ‘She’ll be almost three – I think she’ll be three next month, don’t you know.’

Next she said hello to her ex. ‘Good morning, Kelvin,’ she said. Kelvin is Kevin’s legal name. ‘It’s my truth.’ 

Also this week she called Hunter a ‘serial cheat.’

The host filed for divorce from Hunter in April 2019 after he fathered a child with another woman but she admitted his infidelity didn’t come as a shock because he had slept with other people throughout their 21-year marriage.

‘We were married for almost 22 years. We were together for 25 years,’ she told SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show. ‘I don’t regret the day of meeting him. I don’t regret putting up with him for all 25 years — and that has nothing to do with him having this baby or him having this side girl for almost 15 years of our marriage.’

She added, ‘I’ve known about her almost since the beginning. I’ve known that Kevin is a serial cheat.’

Wendy first found out the 48-year-old producer had been unfaithful while she was pregnant with their son Kevin Jr., now 20.

She continued: ‘The first time I found out was while I was pregnant with our son [Kevin Hunter Jr.] on bedrest. During that time I gave birth to him, he was in the delivery room. … He’s passing out cigars and [saying], you know, ‘My wife and I and little Kev.”

Wendy ‘plotted to divorce’ Kevin and is happy with how things have worked out for her.

She said: ‘I sacrificed a lot of myself to come out successful on the other side, and it all worked.’

The Ask Wendy writer previously admitted Kevin’s ‘major indiscretion’ in fathering another child was the final straw for her.

She said: ‘Kevin had a major indiscretion that he will have to deal with for the rest of his life. An indiscretion that I will not deal with.

‘I never thought that I would be in this position. I’m a very forgiving person, but there’s one thing that I could never be a part of, and that one thing happened.’

This comes after Williams said she wants her next boyfriend to be out of the spotlight.

The host is keen that her future partner isn’t famous like herself or even in the showbiz industry but insists he must have ‘a sense of humour for the business’.

She shared: ‘I’m 56 now. I’m a mom, I’m not a single woman running around town with [rappers and DJs] like Eric B anymore. Those days are over. 

‘My next boyfriend, hopefully husband he’ll turn into, I don’t want him to be in this business. He’s got to appreciate my humour and have a sense of humour for the business that I’m in, and not try to stop me. But he’s also got to be very, very comfortable in the man that he is. And he’s got to be 45 years or older.’

And Wendy – who finalized her divorce from Kevin last year after 22 years of marriage – is excited to have more say on her career and her future goals.

And discussing her future career moves, she added to Entertainment Tonight: ‘Now that I am my own boss, as opposed to having Kevin bossing me around and telling me what to do and me playing the role, I am in on everything. Now I would like to produce more stuff. And that stuff would be for other people to star in, not me – I’m not an actress.

‘I liked being part of the process of writing, and also I would like to sit in that director’s chair one day. Just to be an associate director or something.’
