Wendy williams ex husband on the finale.
Kevin Hunter didn’t mince words when it came time to address the finale of “The Wendy Williams Show.”
Williams’ ex-husband, who is in the m’idst of a la’wsuit with the daytime talk show’s production company, Debmar-Mercury, bl’ast’ed the final episode as a “travesty.”
“I feel like it is a travesty on the part of Debmar-Mercury to have such an unceremonious departure without Wendy being involved,” he said in a statement to “Entertainment Tonight.”
“It is the first time in the history of talk shows for this to be done, especially for a show that has been on for more than 10 years,” Hunter, 50, added. “There is absolutely no reason why a bigger celebration that involved Wendy couldn’t happen.”
Hunter, who shares son Kevin Hunter Jr., 21, with Williams, co-created “Wendy” with his former wife but was fired from his role as executive producer just one week after she filed for divorce in April 2019.
“I know the blood, sweat and tears that went into making the show such a success, [and] I am not happy with the way the show is going out on a personal level,” he continued, “and I am truly sorry that the show’s fans have to see it go down the way that it is.”
A spokesperson for the show confirmed to Page Six earlier this week that it would be ending Friday after 13 seasons. Williams, 57, did not appear for a goodbye tribute, but the show aired a video montage of its eponymous host, who has been struggling with her health in recent years.
“The final original episode of ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ will air on Friday, June 17, with a video tribute to the iconic host,” the statement said. “The series comes to an end after 13 successful years in syndication.”
Hunter su’ed Debmar-Mercury for wrongful termination in March.
“The way Debmar meticulously involved themselves in my personal life, their want to divide and conquer so that they could have access to Wendy, and the practices they carried on with and the way they involved themselves in with me and my ex-wife is deplorable,” H’unter shared with “ET.”
