Wendy Williams was overcome with emotion while talking about her situation with estranged husband Kevin Hunter.
On Sunday night, a photographer caught up with 54-year-old Williams as she was leaving LA’s Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles with the mystery man she recently posted a photo of on Instagram, asking how she and her family were doing in the wake of the divorce and her son’s arrest.
“Young Kevin and I are fine,” Williams said in the video, which was obtained by TMZ. “Big [Kevin], Godspeed. Sometimes in life stuff happens and it’s OK. I still got a very full life that I really adore. Please don’t make me cry.”
Despite her best efforts, the talk show host began to sob as she continued to reflect on her broken marriage.
“I didn’t plan on this but it is what it is … I have a very full life,” she continued, as tears flowed down her face. “Thank you for watching. I would ask you to respect our privacy, but please, I don’t respect people’s privacy, that’s why I do [the segment] ‘Hot Topics’ … all three of us are doing fine.”
Williams also said that although she and “Big Kev” won’t reconcile, fans will see them together again as a family.
“[My son] Kevin’s gotta graduate from college. He’s going into his sophomore year,” she explained. “He’s going to get married … Everyone’s gotta grow up.”
She also vaguely referenced her son’s alleged assault against his father and said they’ll be fine.
“They’re not apart,” she said. “You know stuff happens in life.”
