Wendy Williams has moved on — professionally.
Page Six has learned that 54-year-old Williams has obtained famed producer Bernie Young’s services after firing estranged husband Kevin Hunter as her manager and an executive producer of her eponymous talk show.
A spokesperson for the show confirmed to Page Six that Young won’t serve as an executive producer and that there are no plans to hire a new one. Currently, Williams serves as EP.
Young worked as a coordinating producer and eventually executive producer on “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” from 1996 to 2002 and held the co-executive producer role on “Martha” from 2005 to 2012.
Neither a rep for the show nor Young returned our numerous requests for comment.
Prior to his ouster, Williams hired extra security to have on set while working with Hunter to protect her from his allegedly abusive behavior.
