Is She OK?

Wendy Williams Has Public Breakdown Amid Husband’s Cheating Scandal

‘It’s obviously weighing on her.’

Wendy Williams is in a tailspin, and sources say that the beleaguered daytime talk show host’s drastic weight loss, recent fainting spell on live television and a new teary incident in New York City are proof her marital woes with her husband and manager Kevin Hunter are affecting her well-being.

An eyewitness reveals that a damp-eyed Williams, 53, was recently spotted standing in the front of Barney’s New York in Manhattan before heading to the store’s restaurant, Fred’s, and wolfing down a huge meal.

“She was very emotional,” the source said. “It seemed like she wanted to be noticed standing right by the concierge area, even though it appeared she had tears in her eyes.”

The source also said Williams had a non-vegan dish, although the TV star has maintained that she and her family strictly stick to a plant-based diet.

One store insider noted Williams requested that salespeople refer to her as “Wendy Hunter,” despite rumors that her husband, 46, has been seeing 32-year-old massage-therapist mistress, Sharina Hudson, for almost the past decade and reportedly bought her a home for $765,000 less than 10 miles away from the New Jersey mansion he shares with Williams.

“We all feel badly for her,” the insider said of Williams, who has been married to Hunter for 20 years. “It’s almost like she’s having an identity crisis and it’s all obviously weighing on her.”
