Wendy Williams Reveals Why the Sober House Was One of the Best Things to Ever Happen to Her
It’s been a heartbreaking ride for Wendy Williams. The veteran talk show host has been the subject to endless tabloid gossip and has endured tremendous personal struggles. Fans and celebrities alike have shown support for Williams as she continued to face trial after trial. Now Williams reveals that her recent stay in a sober house was one of the best things she could have done.
Wendy Williams says she will always struggle with addiction
Anyone who has dealt with substance abuse will tell you that addiction is a lifelong battle. It is not something you simply get over. It takes work every single day to stay sober. In March, Williams revealed that she has been staying in a sober house to deal with her ongoing addiction issues.
The talk show host discussed her previous battles with cocaine and said that her addiction issues will always be something that she has to work on. Williams seemed to be getting things together after revealing her stay at the sober house, but took a step backwards when she was admitted to the hospital after being found intoxicated.
Her troubles with her marriage eventually reached a breaking point
For the past couple of years, the talk show host has been the target of endless rumors about her marriage. Her husband, Kevin Hunter, was reportedly seen out with a young massage therapist in 2017. The rumors alleged that Hunter had been seeing this woman for the past ten years.
Williams acknowledged in her 2004 memoir “Wendy’s Got the Heat,” that her husband was unfaithful to her shortly after she gave birth to their son, Kevin Hunter Jr. However, she chose to stay with her husband at the time.
Now things are a little different. Not only is Hunter’s current affair much longer than his first affair, but it appears that he may have fathered a child with his latest girlfriend. Though it has not been confirmed that Hunter is the father, his alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, just gave birth to a baby girl last month.
To the frustration of many, Williams seemed to be sticking by her man again. She told her talk show audience that every marriage goes through its ups and downs. But after her recent relapse, fans knew things needed to change.
illiams finally filed for divorce
After several weeks of speculation, Williams finally filed for divorce from her husband of over 20 years. The decision to divorce Hunter was complicated by the couple’s business relationships. Not only is Hunter the executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show, but he was also her manager and co-owner of their production company. It is likely that their business relationships caused a delay in the couple’s separation.
Now that Williams has decided to divorce Hunter, she told her audience that she is going to be focusing on building the best life for her and her son. She excitedly told the audience that she will be moving out of her sober house in just a few days.
She also said that living in a sober house is one of the best things that could have happened to her. She told her audience that the gray walls and lack of electronics really helped her see everything in her life with a clearer view. She added: “Everybody has things in their life that they’re embarrassed to share with the world, or they’re frightened to share with the world, or they’re not ready to share with the world and addressing my sobriety, my addiction, head on has really helped me sort out every single compartment of my life.”
It looks like things are going in the right direction for
