Wendy Williams dropped a bombshell during a live taping of her show on Tuesday.
The television host tearfully revealed that she has been living in a sober house due to her past cocaine addiction.
“I have been living in a sober house,” she told the audience through tears. “… 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.”
Williams explained that she goes to the sober house after work and her day-to-day 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,” she continued. “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.”
She also says that her husband Kevin Hunter was the only person aware of her situation.
“Only Kevin knows about this. Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here,” she shared. “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.”
The news comes after Wendy Williams returned from a two month hiatus which she said was to treat her Graves’ disease.
