Wendy Williams on 'The View:' Estranged Husband Kevin Hunter 'Is Changing Pampers' & the Host Opens up about Substance Abuse
Wendy Williams trolled her estranged husband Kevin Hunter over his alleged love-child during a recent appearance on “The View.” The TV host also claimed substance abuse was not the reason she lodged in a sober house earlier this year.
The “Wendy Williams Show” returns for season 11 on September 16 and the leading lady has been going on media rounds.

On Thursday, Williams sat down with the ladies of “The View” where she discussed everything from personal troubles to rumors of a future in reality TV.
"Infidelity is one thing. A baby is a whole 'nother topic, okay," Williams said while addressing her decision to file for divorce. "I'm not changing Pampers. I want to be pampered."

According to the “Hot Topics” queen, however, she knew of Hunter’s philandering ways all along and only put up with them for the sake of their son, Kevin Hunter Jr.
“I’m not a selfish mom. I’m a very plot-ative individual; like I will plot on you. That’s why I’m going into Season 11 and he’s changing Pampers.”

THE CHILD COMES FIRST
Recalling how the situation panned out, Williams said she didn’t listen to friends urging her to leave Hunter a long time ago because of her son’s wellbeing.
“I said, ‘No, no, no, no, no. I will stay here. I will make sure [Kevin Jr’s] braces get tightened properly. …I will drive him to the SAT prep courses. I will help him do his essays for college,'” Williams explained, “And now he goes to college in Miami.
“So now it’s time to pull the trigger, and the trigger has been pulled,” she continued, “But Kevin [Sr.] will always be my family no matter what.”
"SOBER HOUSE" SITUATION
When “The View” co-host Joy Behar asked Williams about her stay earlier this year at a sober house, the latter claimed it was to help plot her next move without distraction.
In March, Williams, 55, tearfully revealed to fans that she had been living at a sober house as part of efforts to deal with previous cocaine addiction issues, but her response to Behar told a different story.
WHY WILLIAMS WAS THERE
“That was the place to go where you can really plot on the next part of your life,” Williams claimed, adding that she had been sober for about 25 years. "So people can't call me and inject their opinions on my life."

"It's been a very, very difficult time. I couldn't talk to my mom. Who wants to burden her? I couldn't talk to my sister. And most of my girlfriends would have said, 'You should have left him a long time ago.'"
REALITY TV RUMORS
Although Williams still gets emotional when discussing her family situation, the TV diva is mostly moving on and throwing her energy into work.
She returns for another season later this month, but there’d been rumors that Williams would be joining Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City.”
“It’d be a nice check,” she confirmed before saying: “But no, I’m not that girl.”
