Wendy Williams Reveals She’s Been Living In A Sober House
Our friend, Wendy Williams, revealed to her audience this morning that she is living in a sober house.
“I have been living in a sober house,” she told the audience. “You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in the past. I never went to a place to get treatment … there are people in your family, it might be you … I want you to know more of the story.”
She explained that she returns to the sober facility after work and personal activities: “After I go to the Pilates and go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area, I see my brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction and looking for help. They don’t know I’m Wendy. They don’t care I’m Wendy. It’s the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle. It’s been really interesting, this ride.”
Wendy also said that only her husband, Kevin Hunter, knew what she was doing.
“Only Kevin knows about this,” she spoke. “Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here. After I finish my appointments … I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to a home that I live in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family… We talk and read and talk and read and then I get bored with them. Doors locked by 10 p.m. lights out by 10 p.m., so I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you. So that is my truth.”
Wendy recently took a two-month hiatus from her show, which she previously said was to treat her Graves’ disease.
When she came back, she addressed rumors surrounding the health of her marriage, saying, “I’m still very much in love with my husband. Don’t ask me about mine.” Pointing to her wedding ring, she added, “It ain’t going anywhere. Not in this lifetime.”
“We’re spending time as a family — the Hunters,” she added. “And I just wanted to take some time for myself … I am my own best friend.”
The next day, she announced that she and her family launched a substance abuse hotline to help people struggling with addiction get the assistance they need.
We love you, Wendy.
