Wendy Williams seems to be on the mend, according to her ex-husband Kevin Hunter.

Atlanta Black Star reports that Hunter talked about Williams’ health in an Instagram video update last week.

"She is getting the help that she needs. And hopefully, you know, she'll come out of this swinging," he said. "I know she's got it in her."

He also insinuated that he gave up marijuana because of Williams’ struggles with addiction. He also talked about his own legacy and the family he has created with Sharina Hudson, saying that everyone in his life is his “family.”

"…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," he said.

Williams entered rehab mid-September, with her publicist Shawn Zanotti telling the press that Williams “has entered a wellness facility seeking help to manage her overall health issues.”


"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," Zanotti continued.

“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.”

A prior report from a source claimed that Williams has been at "death's door" before in 2020 due to alcohol abuse.

But Zanotti said in response, “The focus is not on anything from her past. The only focus we have at this time is for Wendy to continue to strive at getting better and moving forward.”

“Right now she is healing and working on the second part to her documentary and her podcast,” Zanotti said. “[S]he has several things that are demanding her attention right now and past gossip is not one of them.”
