Wendy Williams revealed during her Monday show that she’s been living in a ‘sober house’, where she goes every day after taping her daily talk show.
Williams, who recently returned from a two month hiatus during which she was reportedly hospitalised for “health issues”, told her viewers and ‘co-hosts’ that her reality couldn’t be further from the sparkling glamour suggested by the nature of her job.
“Nobody knew, because I look so glamorous out here”, said the Queen of talk, who’s been open about her previous battles with cocaine addition.
Williams also revealed that she attends several meetings with “my brothers and sisters who struggle with this addiction” every day after wrapping up her daily pilate sessions.
The only people who’ve known about this, Wendy says, are her husband and son.
This is the first time Wendy Williams has lifted the veil on some of the going-ons that might have led her to the recent hiatus. Shortly before embarking on the breather, Wendy had to apologise to viewers on the show for slurring her words and appearing disoriented during one of the shows.
The 53 year old media personality returned on her show to shut down rumours of an impending divorce between her and her husband, Kevin Hunter, who’s been dogged by cheating allegations for a while, according to reports.
According to the Daily Mail, Wendy is being treated at the facility for alcohol and prescription medication addition.
The Wendy Williams Shows airs on BET, DStv channel 129, Monday to Friday at 9:00.
