The host and presenter of the Williams show, wendy Williams revealed on Monday during her show that she is just a few days away from moving out the sober living facility she has called home for the past few weeks, and is ready to start a new life for herself and another fellow addict.
This announcement came just days after Williams served her philandering husband of 22 years with divorce papers.
DailyMail.com revealed back in 2017 that Williams’ now-estranged husband Kevin Hunter was having an affair with massage therapist Sharina Hudson, and just last month the couple welcomed their first child.
That seemed to be the final straw for Williams, who said she has a new lease on life thanks to her sobriety and had spent the weekend with her sober friends and pow-wowing with her sister.
‘It’ll be Wendy on her own. I have to tell you, you know I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction. Alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I plan for myself and my son,’ said Williams.
‘Believe me you, when you lay in a room with no TV and four gray walls all day, and no telephone, and you think, “This is my life,” at the sober house. It’s one of the best things, honestly, they could have ever happened to me.’
She then spoke to those in the audience or watching at home who might be dealing with their own addiction issues, and urged them to seek help to overcome their substance abuse.
‘Addressing my sobriety, my addiction, head-on, has helped me sort out every single compartment of my life,’ declared Williams.
The talk show host was also open about her son’s struggle with addiction in an interview with Cosmopolitan last year.
‘My son smoked K2 they take that grass and they spray it with rat poison or whatever. It’s not weed, it’s not coke. Kids are out there smoking that mess. It’ll turn you into a different person, explained Williams.
