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.
