Wendy Williams will reportedly share details of her divorce and drug use if she can score a primetime special. The embattled daytime talk show diva wants a major network such as ABC, NBC, CBS, or OWN, to give her an opportunity to do an exclusive sit-down interview, according to The Grio.

Williams’ issues began to surface several months ago after she admitted to staying in a sober house due to drug addiction. She decided to divorce her husband, Kevin Hunter Sr, weeks later after news broke that his alleged mistress gave birth to his child.

On May 22, 2019, Kevin Sr. got into an argument with their son Kevin Jr. at a store parking lot in New Jersey. Kevin Jr. was allegedly upset that Kevin Sr. was asking a judge to award him spousal support.

The argument eventually turned violent after Kevin Sr. put his son in a headlock. While in the headlock, Kevin Jr. punched his father in the nose, causing him to release his grip. When police arrived, they arrested Kevin Jr. and charged him with assault. Kevin Sr. told authorities that he would not pursue any legal action against his son.

Williams, who has made a living off of airing dirt at the expense of other celebrities, will now expose some of the skeletons in her closet if she signs a deal to do a primetime special.
