Wendy Williams' husband apologizes after divorce filing

Sale 99centWendy Williams' husband issued an apology less than a week after the TV host filed for divorce.

Kevin Hunter addressed his split from the Wendy Williams Show host in a statement Tuesday to E! News following reports he cheated and fathered an illegitimate child.

"28 years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams," Hunter 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," he added.

Hunter, an executive producer on The Wendy Williams Show, told People he takes full responsibility for his recent actions but did not get into detail.

"I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans," the producer said. "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," he vowed.

Williams filed for divorce last week after Hunter's alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, gave birth in March.

"Thank you to everyone for respecting the family's privacy during this time. Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through the process together," Williams' rep said.

Williams shared plans Monday to leave the sober house where she's been residing for some time. She went public about her living situation in March, saying Hunter and their son, Kevin Hunter, Jr., were previously the only ones aware she was seeking help for addiction issues.

'Outlander' Season 5 begins filming in Scotland

Production began this week in Scotland on Season 5 of the historical drama Outlander, Starz announced.

Based on Diana Gabaldon's best-selling series of novels, the show stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan as Clare and Jamie, a couple beginning their new lives together in 18th century North Carolina, following a time travel-induced, 20-year separation and death-defying exploits that took them from Scotland to France to Jamaica.

Clare is a married, former World War II nurse-turned-surgeon who is magically transported through time to the 18th century where she falls in love with Scottish highlander Jamie.

"In Season 4, Jamie and Claire's decision to remain in the New World changes the course of their life together. After being struck by the beauty of the North Carolina wilderness -- untamed and uncultivated -- they choose to call it home: Fraser's Ridge," executive producer Matthew B. Roberts said in a statement Tuesday.

He added: "However, what is a 'dream' for some is a 'nightmare' for others. Being at the center of the birth of America is often a bloody and violent and heartbreaking matter. Now, in Season 5, Jamie and Claire's duty is not only to their loved ones, but to the community of settlers forming part of the ever-increasing Clan Fraser."

On Tuesday, Balfe re-tweeted a photo of Clare smiling at Jamie with the caption: "Just a couple of kids...20+ years in.... #Outlanderseason5."

The series has already been renewed through Season 6 and Gabaldon recently announced she plans to add at least two more books to her eight-novel series.
