Watch: Wendy Williams Breaks Down In Tears & Reveals She Has Been Living In A Sober House To Battle Her Drug Addiction

The host had previously taken a two-month hiatus from her show for health reasons.

Wendy Williams recently returned from a two month hiatus from her daytime talk show to work on some of her health issues, including her thyroid disease and Graves disease. Now, the 54-year-old is revealing that she has been living in a sober house.

“For some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house,” she said on The Wendy Williams show on Tuesday, March 19. The star also revealed that she has a 24 hour sober coach and has been going to meetings all over New York City. 

She added, “I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in [the] past. I never went to a place to get treatment. I don’t know how, except god was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.”

Wendy explained that her husband, Kevin Hunter, and her teenage son, Kevin Jr., were the only people who knew about her struggles until now. “Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew,” she said.
