(Newser) – Just last month, Wendy Williams said on her show that her relationship with husband Kevin Hunter was still strong even after 28 years together, and assured fans her wedding ring "ain't going anywhere—not in this lifetime." But now the talk show host has filed for divorce from her husband of almost 22 years, her attorney tells Page Six. "Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time," her rep says in a statement. "Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together." E! notes that Williams, 54, and Hunter, 46, who have an 18-year-old son together, have recently been hit with rumors Hunter is cheating and even fathered a child with his mistress. (Williams also recently revealed that she's living in a sober house.)
