Kevin Hunter out at 'Wendy Williams Show' amid divorce

Kevin Hunter and Wendy Williams are divorcing after almost 22 years of marriage.

As Page Six reported earlier this week, Hunter was negotiating an exit package after Wiliams filed for divorce last week.

Following the continuation of Kevin's affair, which he flaunted in front of the public by taking the mistress out to dinners decked out in pricey clothes and in expensive cars, Wendy decided enough was enough.

"Kevin told her some other reason as to why he stopped dealing with me so it's just good to clear the air", he told us Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Hunter broke his silence on the split in a statement to PEOPLE, admitting he was "not proud of my recent actions" and apologizing "to my wife, my family and her incredible fans".

"I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her fantastic fans", Hunter said.

Seemingly hopeful about the future, Kevin continued, "I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs".

After stating that she was pleasantly interrupted by her reading by DJ Boof, Williams stated a second phone call came in and she thought that it was Boof calling her a second time.

Kevin had previously told those close to him that he wouldn't divorce his long time wife because she pulled the purse strings and he couldn't afford his lifestyle on his own. Seek treatment and move on.

Williams and Hunter have a 19-year-old son, Kevin Hunter Jr., and the pair run the non-profit Hunter Foundation, which is geared toward drug rehabilitation programs, education services, and prevention. "But she realized she had to open her eyes to a bad marriage". After taking an extended hiatus from The Wendy Williams Show from January to March, Williams, who has always been open about a past addiction to cocaine, revealed last month that she has been living in a sober house.

Despite Williams stating on her show that Charlamagne invited her to dinner, the radio host said no plans have been set yet.

CNN has reached out to Williams' representative for comment. "They really do", she said while seated in her velvet chair.

The Wendy Williams Show is now in its 10th season.
