The talk show host filed for divorce on April 11 citing "irreconcilable differences between the parties which have caused the breakdown of the marriage for a period of six months," in documents obtained by ET. The papers stated there was "no reasonable prospect of reconciliation."
On Tuesday, the topic of divorce came up while Williams interviewed Christie Brinkley on The Wendy Williams Show. During the chat, Williams asked Brinkley -- who has been divorced four times -- whether she would tie the knot again, to which Brinkley responded, “No!”
Williams, 54, agreed, saying, “Me neither,” however she then added, "I mean, I don't know."
She also agreed with Brinkley, 65, about wanting to fall in love again, adding, “It's nice to spoon at night. It's nice to sit by the fire with somebody."
As the two bonded over divorce, Brinkley pointed out she had “been through the entire phone book of lawyers,” and could provide any help Williams needs with divorce lawyers.
The exchange came as ET learned that Hunter has been fired from his role as executive producer on The Wendy Williams Show. According to a source, it is still unclear whether he will continue to act as Williams' manager and business partner.
"Twenty-eight years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams,” he said. “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," he continued. "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."
A source close to Williams previously told ET that Hunter's alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, recently giving birth to a baby was the last straw in the breakdown of the couple’s marriage.
