Wendy Williams Refuses to Back Down From the Rumors

For Wendy Williams, it seems like every day there’s a new story about the drama that is going on in the talk show host’s life. From her marriage to her struggles with substance abuse, Williams is the hot topic of the moment. But for Williams, she is letting the people know: This is her narrative and she’s here to set the record straight.

Wendy Williams continues to live in a sober house

Last month, the talk show host revealed she is staying in a sober house. The former DJ told fans that she is taking the time to address her substance abuse issues and staying in a sober house is helpful in getting through the 12 steps.

On a recent show, Williams discussed the stigma that comes with substance abuse, noting that she is the face of substance abuse. She revealed that many of the people that are staying at the house with her have successful careers and degrees and they simply need some help to get back on track. Williams has not revealed how long she will be staying at the sober house or what issue specifically she is addressing, but it is clear that the talk show host is working hard to get back on track.

Wendy Williams’ tabloid nightmare

Over the weekend, tabloid magazines had a field day with a picture taken of the talk show host during a trip to Walmart. In the picture, Williams was seen sitting in a motorized scooter looking a little less than her usually glammed up self. Magazines quickly circulated the picture, calling Williams “frail.” Other sites posted equally mean-spirited headlines like “Poor Lonely Wendy Needs a Hug.”

Williams took the opportunity on her talk show to address the rumors and tell her audience what really happened. Williams said: “One of the best things about being truthful to yourself, and truthful to you, and having your own show is that I can come and dispel my own rumors.” The talk show host told her audience that she was at Walmart with a group of friends from the sober house. The group visited Walmart during their recent camping trip. The girls were just having fun snacking and shopping and that she allowed a few fans to take pictures. She joked, “Do I look frail?”

Wendy Williams’ marriage is the biggest target of the rumors

Williams’ revelation that she was staying in a sober house was a shock to many. But it is the ongoing speculation about the state of her marriage that continues to fuel the rumor mills.

Williams and her husband, Kevin Hunter, have been together for over 20 years. Though Williams put on a strong face in public, behind the scenes, the couple is in turmoil. The talk show host revealed in her 2004 memoir that her husband had been unfaithful to her, but she chose to stay with him. Now, new details are emerging and it appears that Hunter has been unfaithful for the past decade.

Hunter’s mistress, Sharina Hudson, recently gave birth to a child and most people are speculating that Hunter is the father. Further fueling the rumors, Williams was admitted to the hospital shortly after the baby’s birth after she was found so intoxicated that she needed medical attention.

Now there’s talk that a divorce could reveal just how much money Hunter spent on his mistress. Hunter recently purchased a $40,000 watch for his wife, so it’s not hard to fathom him spending exorbitantly on his mistress as well. Is this information that the couple is trying to keep hidden?

For now, Williams seems to be standing by her husband. The talk show queen has told her fans there is no reason to believe otherwise until the ring on her finger disappears. While the fate of her marriage is uncertain, there is one thing we know for sure. If there are rumors going around that just aren’t true, you can count on Williams to be there to shut it down.
