Now, in an interesting twist, Hunter has issued a public apology to the talk show maven – taking ownership of his wrongs. Well, somewhat.
Check out what he had to say after the jump…
In a statement to The Blast, he the 47-year-old (who welcomed a daughter with alleged mistress of 10 years Sharina Hudson) said:
“28 years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams. At the time, I didn’t realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world. I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally.
I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans. I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.
No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine. I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you.”
Color us cynical, but we wouldn’t be surprised if this was simply a legal move to put him in good stead during divorce proceedings. His dirt has played out oh so publicly (which benefits her); so attempting to take accountability so openly may serve as a favorable factor for him given that New Jersey law would consider his many “faults” in any financial settlements.
In any case, we wish Wendy the best.
