Wendy Williams made a big confession on her widely popular talk show that she has been living in a sober house in NY for a few months now.
The ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ TV host made the admission to her audience while holding back tears. Wendy confessed she had a recent struggle with drugs and is staying in a sober living home. She spoke of having a previous problem with cocaine and her reliance on the sober house to help her get through her struggles.
Wendy appeared well as she was spotted after filming The Wendy Williams Show in NYC. She was wearing a black wool long coat, black dress, and white pointy sneakers while carrying a yellow crocodile handbag.
The host was also carrying a shopping bag with two Snapples and a take-out food bag.
“You know me to be a very honest and truthful person, I’ve got more of the story for you”, she said during her tearful confession – “for some time now, and beyond, I have been living in a sober house. When you see me come to work, glammed up, right after the show, I go across the street I do my pilates, I told you two hours a day, I like to take care of my body, 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 shoulders and I just stopped.”
The candid confession comes on the heels of a Daily Mail report where the New Jersey native was ousted to be going to the sober house after struggling with an addiction to prescription drugs and alcohol.
The report claims that Williams began to take a downward spiral after husband Kevin Hunter refused to leave his mistress Sharina Hudson whom he allegedly had a 10-year love affair with.
The outspoken personality is keeping it real and decided to bring her audience along the road to recovery. She is a cornerstone celebrity in the world of celebrity news and is speaking of her real-life struggles in candor as she would of any of the celebrities she frequently covers.
