Daytime TV host Wendy Williams’ husband Kevin Hunter is leading a double life – engaging in a secret long-term affair with a younger massage therapist, DailyMail TV can exclusively reveal after a year-long investigation.
The 46-year-old has been seeing Sharina Hudson, 32, for more than 10 years, splitting his time between the New Jersey home he shares with Williams, 53, and their teenage son Kevin Jr, and a secluded suburban house that he bought for his mistress just nine miles down the road.
In what could be a devastating blow for his wife of 20 years, Hunter – who manages his TV star wife’s career and runs a production company that they jointly own – is said to be ‘in love’ with both women and is juggling his time to accommodate them both.
In fact, just days after Hunter was photographed strolling along a beach in Barbados during a romantic break with Williams, he was snapped spending time with Sharina back in Morristown, New Jersey.
The spokesperson for Wendy Williams, Ronn Torossian, denied her husband was having an affair. ‘One plus one does not equal three. This woman is a friend of Mr. Hunter but there is no “there” there,’ he said quoting a well known reference to a remark by Gertrude Stein in 1937 movie Everybody’s Autobiography, which means nothing significant exists.
Williams spoke about her husband recently – seen in the holiday snaps – when she talked to People about her revealing bikini photos, which showed off her surgically enhanced figure.
She said: ‘We were having the time of our lives. We totally thought we were by ourselves.
‘I don’t care when people talk about the way I look, because as long I love what I see when I get out of the shower, as long as (my husband) loves what he sees when I slip into bed, and as long as my son is not embarrassed by overweight or underweight mommy, I’m good.’
But while the star appeared to be loved up on vacation, as soon as her husband returned to new Jersey, he spent time with his other woman.
DailyMail.com photographed his mistress wearing a huge diamond ring on her manicured engagement finger.
It’s unclear to what extent Williams is aware of her husband’s extra-marital affair.
A source, speaking exclusively told DailyMail.com, said: ‘Kevin is with Sharina three or four times a week, often staying over.
‘They go to the gym together, they go out to restaurants together as if they’re a normal couple.
‘But then he goes home to Wendy as if everything is normal there, too. He’s living a double life.’
DailyMail.com was able to uncover Hunter’s double life after an exhaustive year-long investigation.
After a tip back in September 2016, Hunter was discovered splitting his time between the family home in Livingston, New Jersey, and a luxury two-bedroom condo he owns 30 miles away in Fort Lee, New Jersey, where his mistress was staying.
Public records show Hunter bought the Fort Lee property in 2004 and Hudson was listed as living there from 2015.
The $700,000 apartment is close to the banks of the Hudson River and boasted a wrap around terrace, marble floors, its own bar and a private elevator.
DailyMail.com observed Hunter entering and leaving the apartment building several times over a four week period driving a fleet of supercars, which included a white $303,000 Bentley Mulsanne, a $335,000 Rolls Royce Dawn, the 2016 convertible model and a brand new champagne colored $229,000 Bentley Bentayga SUV.
At the same time he was returning from the condo to the home he shares with Williams.
Hunter and Hudson were also snapped leaving the apartment together and driving to the Club Metro gym in Fort Lee in his customized white Bentley.
After a 45 minute work out, DailyMail.com exclusive photos show Hunter and Hudson walking side-by-side back to the car and returned to the apartment block in the Bentley.
Then 15 minutes later, a $97,000 Porsche Cayenne GTS driven by Hudson came out of the underground parking lot with Hunter in the passenger seat.
The pair carried out some errands together, including visiting a FedEx store and stopping for some groceries – mundane chores most couples take care of on the weekend.
A neighbor in the apartment block told DailyMail.com they knew the pair well, confirming that they both lived in the apartment together.
Fast forward 12 months to September 2017 and it appears Hunter and his mistress are still very much together.
DailyMail.com has learned the pair have since moved to a suburban $765,000 four-bed, 3,900 sq ft single family home in Morristown, New Jersey.
Hudson is listed as moving into the unassuming, secluded property in February, and according to records, Hunter bought the house in January. He’s also listed as a resident.
Their names are even on the mailbox outside alongside a third person, Nikki Hudson, apparently a relative of Hudson’s.
Hunter and Hudson were both seen coming and going from the property which sits on a quiet lane over a number of weeks earlier this month. The relative wasn’t seen once.
At one point, Hunter made an hour long call from a terrace to the rear of the property and on another day he ventured out to smoke a suspicious looking cigarette.
And recently, Hunter left the secret couple’s house in the afternoon in his pricey Bentley and made the short drive directly to his main home where he lives with Williams.
Soon afterwards, he was seen driving away from that house with his wife in the passenger seat of a baby blue Ferrari sports car.
Hunter and Williams share a huge five bedroom $2 million house in the exclusive private Bel Air estate in Livingstone, New Jersey, along with their son Kevin Jr.
But according to a source, their relationship is such that Hunter is able to regularly be with his mistress.
The source says Hunter often refers to Hudson as his ‘shawty’ – a slang term for young, attractive woman or girlfriend – in private conversations with friends.
‘Kevin and Sharina do go out in public together, there’s a steakhouse Kevin likes to go to, but they mainly stay in the house and hang out.
‘Kevin isn’t a touchy-feely person so you’d never see them kissing or hugging in public and if they ever see anybody she knows the drill, he introduces her as his sister.
‘Kevin has pretty much trained her so she knows what to do.’
The source said Hunter – who likes to wear hip hop style baggy jeans, T-shirts or fashionable work out gear says: ‘Kevin runs the show in their marriage and Wendy never questions him on where he’s been.’
The source said Hunter has even traveled with his mistress to meet her family and friends in the Carolinas.
‘He told Wendy he was going on a business trip for a few days, she didn’t question it at all,’ the source said.
Hudson herself regularly goes back home to see family in Columbia, S.C.
But it’s understood that her parents aren’t too happy about her secret relationship and they have made it clear they don’t like Hunter.
The source said: ‘Her parents don’t like the situation, they want him to step up and leave his wife and commit his future to Sharina. They want grandchildren.
‘Kevin has told Sharina that he will choose her eventually, but her family think he’s just stringing her along.’
The source said Hudson wants to settle down with Hunter and wants to have children with him.
‘Kevin loves Sharina just as much as he loves his wife so it’s difficult for him to let go of either of them,’ the source said.
‘Sharina has put a lot of pressure on him to leave Wendy and he has made certain promises, but will he follow through?’
Hudson is a professionally licensed massage and body work therapist and online profiles for her say she now works as a personal shopper and celebrity stylist.
She was also linked to an online accessory business called Lavish Couture, which sells jewelry and watches, and promotes itself as a fearless lifestyle brand.
But the source Hunter basically supports her.
‘Kevin supports Sharina financially. She lives in his place rent-free and he’s bought her various different cars and nice clothes and jewelry.
But ultimately the source says Hunter is torn between the two women in his life and doesn’t want to lose either one.
The revelations about the affair have inevitably opened up concern about Hunter and Williams’ marriage.
But recent photos of the couple enjoying each other’s company in Barbados do suggest everything is well on the home front.
‘In an interview Williams revealed she found Hunter cheating in 2001, just after the birth of their son.
She told Essence that when she was younger, she would have never stuck by a man who cheated on her.
She said: ‘If you told me when I was 25 years old or 30 years old that I would stay around for a cheater, I would have been like you are lying. I’ve got way too much to offer a man to stick around for him cheating on me.
‘At that particular time, I had my career in radio, I was making a great salary, I had vacation property of my very own and the world was my oyster, so I definitely thought I wasn’t staying around for some cheating. But I did and I don’t regret it.’
She said Hunter’s cheating made their relationship 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. But I love him and he loves me.’
In 2008, Williams was sued over claims that Hunter had sexually harassed a member of her staff.
Nicole Spence, talent booker for The Wendy Williams Experience, first filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Williams.
Spence claimed her husband demanded sex from her on many occasions and created a hostile work environment by threatening and assaulting his wife on company premises.
Then on June 11, 2008, Spence filed a sexual-harassment lawsuit against Williams, Hunter, and Inner City Broadcasting Corporation in federal court in Manhattan.
News One reported that in addition to Spence being harassed by Hunter, Spence accused Williams herself of aiding in the problem.
She also alleged that Hunter once charged at her and that he even assaulted his own wife, ‘choking her’ and ‘pinning her’ against the wall of a studio.
The $5 million case was settled out of court.
In 2012, a sex tape came out on the internet of a man who was said to be Hunter and another woman who was clearly not Williams.
Williams denied that the man in the video was her husband.
In March 2014 reality star Evelyn Lozada put Hunter on blast, giving details on specific shoes he supposedly bought his ‘mistress’ from Lozada’s store in Miami.
