Williams, 54, was talking about Jason Momoa’s clean-shaven face on the Friday, April 19, episode of The Wendy Williams Show when she dropped her married title. “Just observing him as a single woman, I have to tell you that the newly shaved Jason Momoa just looks like another hot guy in the streets,” she noted. “I mean, very hot. But, just another one. Whereas this look right here with all the hair … separates him. He looks terrible … like you want him to do terrible things to you.”

News of the couple’s split came weeks after his alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, gave birth to a daughter. While a source told Us that he is the father of the child, Hunter has not commented publicly on the baby’s paternity.

He did, however, release a statement apologizing to his estranged wife and wishing her the best in the future. “I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans. I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs,” he said in the statement to Us, which was released on Tuesday, April 16. “No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine. I ask that you please give me and my family privacy as we heal. Thank you.”
