Wendy Williams Shocks Her Audience By Revealing She’s Been Living In A Sober House (VIDEO)
Well, well, well. When Wendy Williams took a month long break from her show earlier this year, people were speculating that she was abusing alcohol and prescription pills. There was no confirmation of these rumors, only speculation from her struggles in the past with cocaine.
When Wendy came back on the air earlier this month, she blamed her extended vacation on her Graves disease. She said she just needed some time to rest.
But now we are learning there is more to the story. On Tuesday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the 54-year-old TV host made an emotional announcement. She told the studio audience that she has been secretly living in a sober house. The only people who knew were her husband and her son.
Well, for some time now, and 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 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. 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.
I wanted to know more of the story, so this is my autobiographical story and I’m living it and I’m telling you this.
She didn’t say what substance she’s addicted to now. Hell, she didn’t even really admit to being addicted to anything. She almost made it seem like she entered the house to learn more about her past struggles with addiction, but that seems highly unlikely.
Williams told her audience that she goes to several meetings around the Tri-State area, and has to be back at the house before 10 pm to make the curfew.
So I go to my room and I stare at the ceiling and I fall asleep to wake up to come back here and to see you. So that is my truth. Either you’re calling me crazy or the bravest woman you know. I don’t care.
She ended her emotional statement by encouraging those who are either struggling or know someone who is struggling with addiction to get help before it’s too late.
