The divorce news comes after Williams notably flaunted her lack of a wedding bandearly Thursday on her hairstylist's and makeup artist's social media. Now Williams reportedly is filing for divorce and wearing a different ring. The talk show host is done and moving on with her life after cheating allegations have plagued her marriage for years.

In 2017, Williams told PEOPLE that Hunter had been a pillar of strength as she grappled with her diagnosis. "Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here", she shared. Infidelity rumors have long dogged Hunter, prompting Williams to periodically defend their union on her nationally syndicated show. But her emotional on-air announcement intensified the scrutiny around Hunter, an executive producer on the show and Williams's longtime manager, amid tabloid reports that he had a baby with another woman.

"Sasha added the "#IfYouOnlyKnew" hashtag to the Twitter post, indicating more to the story. The hot topic host ultimately confessed that she was seeking help for drugs and/or alcohol (she never specified which one or both) dependency, but was living in a sober house to help her address her history of addiction. She reiterated that message on her talk show, in the return episode following Williams shocking two-month hiatus. But not only did she not wear the ring, she went out of her way to show you that the ring had been removed and replaced with a floral ring fans are familiar with.
