The daytime chat show queen has been married to Hunter since November 1997, a union dogged by rumors of Hunter’s infidelity in recent years.
Still, Williams was left devastated following Page Six’s revelations that Hunter’s alleged mistress of as much as 10 years, Sharina Hudson, gave birth earlier this week. It has not been confirmed Hunter is the father, but he is widely speculated to be.
Now sources say Williams and Hunter are exploring what a separation would look like, even though he remains her long-time manager. They are both partners in Wendy Williams Productions, the company that produces her popular daytime show.
A source told us: “There is a discussion about what happens now — everyone is asking, ‘How can they possibly stay together?’ Wendy still loves Kevin, but her health is at stake.
“They are so tangled up together in business, so they are carefully looking at what a separation could entail. It will be difficult.”
Williams and Hunter own a multi-million-dollar home in Livingston, NJ, and are the parents of 18-year-old son Kevin Jr.
Earlier this month, Williams finally admitted she is battling an addiction to alcohol and drugs — and confirmed that she currently is living in a sober facility in Queens.
We reported how it was Hunter’s decision to send his wife there — much to the concern of others close to her. But she has been allowed out to film her show on weekdays. Next week she’ll be off the air on a hiatus planned before her life spiraled into this new scandal.
“Long week,” Williams said at the beginning of her daily Hot Topics segment on Friday, as she dropped a throat lozenge into her mug.
Hopefully this leads to Wendy Williams being able to finally be free of the drama and get back focus on her life and goals.
22-year-old author, journalist, and model Tyrah Majors recently launched a talk show that features one-on-one interviews with millennial’s who’ve started their own ventures.
The self-produced show, titled “Major Moves with Tyrah Majors” features anyone who is making “major moves” whether they be an entrepreneur, artist, designer, non-profit organizer, or anyone that is making a difference and a positive impact in the world.
First to create a talk show centered on entrepreneurship, Majors considers it to be a driving force for those who want to build a brand and are just looking for a little inspiration to do so.
“If there is one thing I know, it is that young people have so much power to influence other young people, especially in today’s culture of social media,” Majors said. “They tend to be driven and feel inspired when they see great things done by people like themselves.”
A range of business boomers from app creators to fashion designers have shared their story on Major Moves with Tyrah Majors. In her first episode, Majors spoke with two 24-year-olds about their journey in starting “Bev,” a rose wine company made by chicks.
The show is filmed in a TV studio at the University of Southern California (USC), where Majors is a full-time graduate student. As a journalism major, she is the very first student at USC to launch their own talk show on campus in this format.
Aside from producing and hosting her newest venture, the San Diego native is also a children’s book author. She published her first book titled “Grammy and Me” in 2017, telling the story about a young girl spending the day with her grandmother. The book centers on family values, and bringing characters of color into the forefront of the children’s media landscape.
Born and raised in San Diego, California, Tyrah Majors has grown her experience in the profession with news outlets including NBC, Tribune, and MUSE TV. Recently she shared with me her journey thus far with starting her show.
What inspired you to start your talk show?
“Major Moves” is something people would call me throughout undergraduate school, as a playoff of my last name. After I wrote my book, everyone started saying it because they thought it was a “Major Move.” So then I thought: there are so many people out there in the world doing great things and making moves, and it inspired me. I see it in my friends and family especially. I love telling stories and discovering new talents, so I figured why not give other people who are making “Major Moves” a platform to share theirs!”
What do you enjoy most about creating a platform for Entrepreneurs?
“It’s such a popular trend these days to start your own thing and build your own brand. There’s no problem with having a supervisor or working for a corporation, however I’m seeing this decrease more and more as the new generations start to enter the workforce. Everyone wants to start their own “thing,” and there are so many cool ideas just waiting to be shared! My favorite part about this job is giving those who are just starting out with their business, a platform to share their creativity and thinking. I like giving the up-and-comers their shine time, because frequently their slept on. Many times credit is only given to those with a blue verified check on Instagram. I like giving credit where it’s due.”
What do you want to accomplish next in your career for 2019?
“Well first off, finish my master’s degree. Throughout the rest of the year I want to continue to grow my platform, so the stories I report (that hopefully inspire people) reach a mass audience. I also am writing a second children’s book that I hope will be published by the beginning of 2020!”
What motivates you to keep going daily as a young entrepreneur in media?
“Every day I’m motivated by doing this job, being self-sufficient and seeing the reaction. I’m always looking for new content, ideas and innovations that’ll hopefully be the foundation to doing what I love forever. I look at others in the media industry who are in high positions of power and influence and think to myself, ‘wow, if they can do it, so can I. Also, I don’t know where I would be today if it wasn’t for the continuous support and advice from my family.”
How did you deal with any critics when you announced you were starting your show?
“Omg! I got so much criticism when I was first starting up this show. “No one is going to watch this, talk shows are for old people.” “You’re not going to get any views on this,” and much more. I took those negative comments and disregarded them, because I knew that if I didn’t pursue this, I would never know if I could. Now that I’m this far in, I don’t want to stop. Haters are always going to hate, you just got to keep on innovating!”
I absolutely love to hear the stories of our young entrepreneurs that are getting out here and taking their skills to the next level!

As temperatures plunged to life-threatening lows this week, more than 100 homeless people in Chicago unexpectedly found themselves with food, fresh clothes and a place to stay after a local real estate broker intervened.
The broker, Candice Payne, 34, said it was a “spur-of-the-moment” decision to help. “It was 50 below, and I knew they were going to be sleeping on ice and I had to do something,” she said on Saturday.
Ms. Payne contacted hotels and found 30 rooms available at the Amber Inn for Wednesday night at $70 per room. Temperatures in Chicago reached lows of minus 25 and minus 26 on Wednesday and Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
After Ms. Payne paid for the rooms on a credit card, she asked on her Instagram account for anyone who could help transport the homeless people. Soon she had a caravan of cars, S.U.V.s and vans with volunteer drivers.
“We had to accommodate everyone. It was really overwhelming,” Ms. Payne said. “They were so appreciative. They couldn’t wait to get in a bath and lay in a bed.”
Ms. Payne bought toiletries, food, prenatal vitamins, lotions, deodorants and snacks and made care packages to help make the people feel comfortable. Restaurants donated trays of food, and many people called the inn.
I love hearing about good deeds being done to those who are less fortunate than us.
Nicki Minaj returned to Queen Radio on Saturday afternoon and dropped a couple of remixes.
Then, she dropped a fiery remix to Drake and Meek Mill’s “Going Bad,” this time taking some shots.
“When you lose the queen, niggas friendly, dawg. It was just ‘back to back’ like Wembley, dawg,” Nicki raps. The line is obviously a reference to Drake & Meek ending their beef years after Drake’s “Back to Back” diss track.
She took a few more jabs in the song which you can listen to below.
On Monday (Jan. 28), Pepsi unveiled its highly anticipated Super Bowl LIII commercial, starring Cardi B, Steve Carrell and Lil Jon. The 60-second clip, titled “More Than OK,” centers around the exchange between a waiter and a customer at a diner. When ordering a Coke, the waiter asks, “Is Pepsi OK?” Carrell then appears in the booth behind her to show why Pepsi is “more than OK!”
To prove a point, he gets Lil Jon, who delivers his signature catchphrase, “O-KAYYY!”
Cardi B, shimmering in a blue and silver jacket, bursts through the doors while her hit “I Like It” plays. “Okurrr!” she says before grabbing a diamond-studded Pepsi can and walking through the diner!
Whew chile, Sammie is at it again, and this time causing some definite friction for the lovers in the bedroom with his latest single! The 31-year-old singer connected with rapper Lil Baby for a smooth track titled “Times 10.” In my MJ voice let me say, “you wanna be starting something”, and that is definitely what he has done, for the lovers of course. With over 20 years in the game, Sammie has always managed to keep the ladies mesmerized with his vocals and relate able music on experiences with love. This single takes me back, giving me 90s vibes, and I definitely feel this song will be on the playlist for every couple on Valentine’s night!
On the steamy track, he sings about reciprocating sexual acts with his love interest. “When you freakin’ me, baby, anything goes/But when you go down, I know you care and it shows/I’ll return the favor, baby, times ten…”
Honey Sammie out here just trying to let that future wifey know that he is not stingy in the bedroom!
Sammie took to Instagram recently to announce that in his forthcoming album, which will be dropping soon, he will be more open with us. He has always been pretty transparent in his music career, so it comes as no surprise.
“On my forthcoming album, I’m exposing myself. My triumphs, my losses. My lies, my infidelities, hell even me recently having my heart broken for the first time in my life….I was hurt while creating this album.”
I know ladies you are thinking after hearing “Times 10” it’s a bit hard to imagine Sammie having a broken heart, like who would want to break his heart?! After all, he is the first child star of the millennial which we all crushed over the years! Let that sink in.
Check out a preview of the video for “Times 10” by Sammie and Lil Baby below.
