Kevin Hunter’s Net Worth

Kevin Hunter Sr.’s net worth is $7.5 million and he’s the executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show, as well as her manager.

There have been many reports that Hunter is “controlling” behind the scenes, holding back some of his wife’s fan mail (so she isn’t bothered), screening her interview questions, limiting her contact with her fans and staff, and limiting which gifts and other items get to her. If all that is true, we can only imagine what the dynamic is at home! But despite her husband’s faults, Williams has nothing but good things to say about him, and never uses her show to attack his character. Whatever he’s doing to run her show is clearly working for her. The media maven has sat down with the biggest names in Hollywood, including Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ricky Martin, Tyrese Gibson and more. She may not have the same approach as Oprah did back in her day, but Williams’ show gets results and people either love her or love to hate her. She doesn’t care as long as you’re watching!

Kevin Hunter and Wendy Williams’ Son

Hunter and Williams have a 16-year-old son, also named Kevin, after his father. Williams has mentioned her son and how much she loves him, but also how he gets on her last nerves sometimes! One of the downsides of having a famous parent is when your private life becomes public. (And we don’t mean when your mom calls you by your childhood nickname in front of your friends, we mean the kind of downside when the whole country, and anyone with WiFi, finds out your most embarrassing moments!)


Last year, on an episode of Conan, the talk show host revealed that her son caught her doing his father a “favor.” And no, we don’t mean taking out the trash!

“We don’t close doors at our house,” Williams said. “We walk hard in our house…or we’re always clearing our throats. That’s the warning sign that ‘here I come.’ You don’t just tiptoe to somebody’s room. I respect him, so when I come to see his room, you hear it… ‘Kevin, here I come!’ And I walk slow to give him a chance to clean up.”

“And we don’t close our door either but if you walk in on me and my husband, you’re gonna get a surprise!” she added.

“Once, when he was 13,” Williams said. “He got a surprise and he will never do that again…he walked in on me giving my husband a favor, at 2 o’clock in the morning.”

Williams added that the next day, her son gave her a hug as usual, but not a kiss—and we can’t say we blame him! Is it too much to lock your doors?

Kevin Hunter Sr. Cheated!

Kevin Hunter Sr. is no stranger to sex scandals; from sexual harassment suits to leaked sex tapes, the man is always at the center of it all. But the most damaging to his marriage was when he cheated on Wendy Williams. In an interview with Essence, Williams revealed that she caught her husband cheating shortly after their son was born and, despite the ordeal, she forgave him and it made their marriage stronger.

“No, I’m not back to the girl that I was before him because when you get stung like that you never go back to who you were, only a fool does,” said Williams. “But I love him and he loves me.”

Despite their obstacles, the family is closer than ever and we wish them a very happy anniversary!
