Wendy Williams is prioritizing her safety as she continues to film her eponymous talk show.
A source close to the show told Page Six that Williams has hired extra security to protect her from estranged husband Kevin Hunter, who still serves as executive producer of the morning show. We’re told the decision to beef up the number of guards she has stems from her deteriorated relationship with Hunter, from whom she filed for divorce fromlast week.
Hunter and Williams were married for 21 years.
Williams, 54, may not need the added security for long, though, as we confirmed earlier this week that Hunter is negotiating an exit package from the show.
As Page Six previously reported, Hunter was allegedly abusive toward Williams throughout their marriage and is rumored to have been the cause of her broken shoulder in December.
Reps for Williams, Hunter and Debmar-Mercury, the show’s production company, didn’t return our requests for comment.
