Media personality Wendy Williams finally got candid about her husband’s alleged affair.

Williams said she would “not deal” with her husband’s indiscretions in a new interview with The New York Times Magazine published Monday.

“Kevin had a major indiscretion that he will have to deal with for the rest of his life. An indiscretion that I will not deal with,” Williams said. “He will always be my family, because we have a 19-year-old son, and we were together for 25 years and married for 21. But there was no vacillating. I’m out. That’s all I can say.”

Williams admitted she checked herself into a sober house after she learned Kevin Hunter’s alleged mistress was pregnant. (RELATED: REPORT: Wendy Williams Files For Divorce From Kevin Hunter)

“When you see your husband’s mistress with a burgeoning belly and you’re a blabbermouth on TV with a successful show, you know what’s about to happen,” she said.

“I needed to go someplace quiet,” Williams continued. “When you go to a sober house, it’s like being in jail. I needed to not be interrupted by anyone.”

The morning talk show host revealed she wanted to come out on top of the news.

“My husband was about to have a baby, and I knew that I was about to divorce,” she said. “I knew that there would be headlines. I had to process it so that once I came out, I came out on top. I didn’t work for three decades to land at the bottom over some [expletive] like this.”
