What do we know about celebrities? I’ll tell you, short answer, we know nothing…..

We are graced with their gifts that they often display in front of a camera. A proposed honest yet produced setting of high adventure into their worlds.  We are constantly mesmerized by elite Film Producers who even now hang the title of  “Reality TV” on their projects. Wow, reality huh? When it comes to celebrities, I don’t think we graduate to reality without a deep conversation with them, away from their cameras and producers.

Collectively, we have followed the rise and eventual fall of The Wendy Williams Show. Even beyond its era there remains no shortage of breaking news material associated with its Pop Culture/Hip Hop Culture  favorite Host Wendy Williams trials and tribulations.  However  what is missing from many of those breaking news clips is reality. While Kelvin Hunter Sr., Wendy Williams ex-husband, is indeed mentioned and often slandered, I don’t think we ever really knew him. Many of us didn’t even know he actually helped create and develop The Wendy Williams Show. So, why wouldn’t he be upset about pay he professionally earned as an Executive Producer of the show, while others focused squarely on his personal indiscretions. In an upcoming Westside Gazette Special we get Mr. Kelvin Hunter away from producers and the camera.  In his first published exclusive interview since his three year old very public divorce from the Hollywood Walk of Fame TV Host. We go back to Brownsville NY and hear what life was like for him growing up. Then quickly we hurdle the pains of this often homeless teenager and make our way up to New Jersey NY to when Night Club promoter Kelvin met Radio Wendy.  We’ll learn new facts about show that many love as Kelvin answers all the questions we never asked. How could we,  what do we know about celebrities? I’ll tell you, short answer, we know nothing…… until they sit down with us away from the cameras and producers like Kelvin did.
