According to a well-placed source, Williams and Hunter, who is also her manager, were taken to lunch by executives from her production company Debmar-Mercury, who revealed they were partnering with Martinez on a new daytime show.
Williams immediately burst into tears and screamed at the two executives, while her husband kept yelling, ‘this is some bulls***!’
‘Apparently, it was a dramatic blow up in the back of the restaurant. Lots of screaming, yelling and swearing. No matter how the TV execs explained that it was not a conflict of interest, Wendy and Kevin just weren’t hearing it,’ the source revealed.
Williams kept saying to her team: ‘I can’t believe that b**** is getting a show with them. This is such a betrayal!’
Those close to Williams believe her over the top response to Martinez getting a talk show pilot was her releasing her frustration with everything else going on in her life.
‘No one is sure whether she already knew of Kevin’s affair or was shocked by the news. Whatever the case, she is more embarrassed the veil has been lifted off her life. The woman who gossips about everyone else’s life for a living is now making headlines of her own,’ the source explained.
