Wendy Williams is taking a more active role in her businesses after filing for divorce from estranged husband, Kevin Hunter, who allegedly used to keep her in the dark.


Wendy was at the FWD conference in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday and sat for an interview at the Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Summit.


The “Wendy Williams Show” host spoke to the audience about staying in the loop with their businesses and not relying on others to put in the necessary work. 

The 54-year-old has been making moves to cut off all financial ties with Kevin, who she’s been married to for nearly 22 years

"You’ve gotta be at the ground floor of your operation. I don’t care how big you get," Wendy said in a video obtained by The Blast. "Don’t just rely on your team to bring back the information because you’re such a big shot and you don’t have to be there. No."


Strengthening her points with personal experience, the TV diva recalled how Kevin had control over her businesses and left her to play a passive role:

“It used to be Kev and the team; they would show up, and then Kev wouldn’t bring me in until he knew, ‘OK, the deal’s done. Now it’s time for you to meet the people.’”

Wendy filed for divorce from Hunter in April following reports that he fathered a child with his alleged longtime mistress. Around the same time, the daytime host was also battling alcohol addiction and generally going through a difficult period.


Since then, however, Wendy seems to have been making improvements in her life, and that includes taking back control of her businesses.

“Not now,” she continued telling the audience at the summit. “I wanna be in on the first conversation of the deal, and I wanna be on every meeting until the deal is done. And that’s the way I roll.”


Since filing for divorce, the 54-year-old has been making moves to cut off all financial ties with Kevin, who she’s been married to for nearly 22 years. Wendy first fired him from his executive producer role on her show and more recently, dissolved their non-profit charity, “The Hunter Foundation.”

Wendy has also been trying to move on in her personal life, partying more often and even getting herself a much-younger new man.
