Wendy Williams had the most transparent moment ever on Tuesday when she revealed she has been living in a sober house
For some time now, even today 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 2 hours a day – I like to take care of my body.
You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past and I never went to a place to get treatment.
I don’t know how – except God was sitting on my should and I just stopped. But, there are people in your family, it might be you who’ve been struggling …I want you to know more of the story.
Williams explained that she returns to the sober facility after work and personal activities.
After I go to the Pilates and go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area and I see my brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction and looking for help.
They don’t know I’m Wendy. They don’t care I’m Wendy. There’s no autograph. There’s no nothing. It’s the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle.
It’s been really interesting, this ride
Wendy went on to reveal her husband, Kevin Hunter, and her son are the only person who knew she is living at a sober house.
Only Kevin knows about this. Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here.
After I finish my appointments…seeing my brothers and sisters…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.
See video below.
There’s been an outpouring of love and support for Wendy after she shared her truth.
Peep the tweets:
