It’s been a trying time for talk show host Wendy Williams. She recently admitted that she’s been residing in a sober living home to battle her addictions to cocaine and crack cocaine. She’s openly admitted that in the past she was once a barely functioning addict, and after taking a leave from her show, she’s back with new struggles.
“For some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house,” she revealed. “And you know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past. And I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don’t know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.”
That news came right in the midst of some personal drama as reports ran wild that Williams’ husband was carrying on an affair. After tearfully admitting that she was living in a sober residence, photos surfaced of Williams’ husband, Kevin Hunter, on vacation with his mistress. This is allegedly what has caused Willaims to go through her downward spiral, including reports that claim the mistress may even be pregnant.
Hunter and Williams have been married since 1997 and although he hasn’t had much to say during this time, he finally broke his silence when he offered up a hopeful update to ET. “Wendy is doing well. We’re doing well as a family. We are moving forward with working on her sobriety and doing the work to help others, not just ourselves,” he said. “It is a family process. Anybody that has to deal with this knows this a family process… and we are dealing with it and moving forward.”
