Hunter, 49, said, "She is getting the help that she needs. And hopefully, you know, she'll come out of this swinging. I know she's got it in her." The former daytime talk show host's representative reported to The Sun that Williams is still at the treatment facility after they reported last week that she was receiving therapy. "As far as my immediate family, I could not do it without the greatest help of my queen, that's representing me now Sharina Hudson," Hunter remarked mentioning about the woman with whom he had a child in 2019 while still married to Williams, 58.

Hunter went on to talk about Hudson's love and support while mentioning his own decision to give up marijuana. He said, "Everybody's family and I realized that I had to swing the sword for my whole family because there are a lot of people that are trying to exploit what I have built along with my family. I'm not going to let nobody take away from me what is mine, and I need to be very focused for the fight that is in front of me."

The former executive producer of a daytime talk show then became emotional as he discussed his own personal growth journey and broke down in tears. "Please don't take my tears for any kind of sign of weakness, because anybody that knows me knows I'm a fighter," he said. Hunter then made a comment that Williams' fans could find offensive; he applauded the success of 'The Wendy Williams' Show and credited his mistress in part for that success.

Hunter said, "I'm going to say this with pride and passion- nobody, and I mean nobody, will ever bring the energy, the charisma, the passion, the expertise, the talent, and whatever else you want to call it that you've seen with Kevin Hunter and my ex, Wendy Williams, and the team that was behind us and I mean the whole team."

"That includes my current lady now because it takes a village and I'm going to say it. Yeah, I said it. Whoever doesn't like it, they just aren't going to like it, and I'm going to say it again," Hunter stated with an evident hint to those who may be offended by such a bold claim.

Last week, Williams' publicist Shawn Zanotti stated, "She is taking some time to focus on her health and wellness as she prepares for a major comeback for the next level in her career with The Wendy Experience Podcast. Ms. Williams is being treated by a team of some of the best doctors in the world. We ask for your prayers and well-wishes during this time," as reported by The Sun.
