Why was Wendy Williams Hospitalized?
Wendy Williams can’t seem to catch a break. The talk show host has been making headlines over the last few weeks for a number of alarming reasons. Most recently, Williams made the news for being hospitalized on Monday after getting too intoxicated.
This was especially alarming because she recently revealed to The Wendy Williams Show audience that she was living in a sober house to deal with her addictions.
“For some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house,” she said on her Mar. 19th show. “And you know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past. And 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.”
She also began attending meetings to help her keep her addictions at bay.
“This is my autobiographical story and I’m living it and I’m telling you this,” she said. “After I go to the pilates, I go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area.”
Before this revalation, Williams had been keeping her journey to sobriety a secret.
Williams checks out of sober house
Unfortunately, Williams checked herself out of the sober house on Monday which caused her sober coach to be alarmed, according to the Daily Mail.
Later that day, she was found drunk and taken to the hospital so that she could sober up. While at the hospital, she was reportedly given a banana bag. These IVs contain thiamine, magnesium, sulfate, and folic acid and are given to patients who have vitamin and electrolyte
“Wendy is not in a good way, everyone is so concerned for her,” a source told Page Six. “The sad thing is that she’s been working so hard to stay sober and she’s been so honest in her struggles with all her fans, and this just tipped her over the edge.”
Williams’ return to work
Though she was admitted to the hospital on Monday, Williams was back at her show on Wednesday.
According to the audience, she seemed normal at the taping.
“Today was a great taping,” an audience member told E! News of Wednesday’s show. “Her energy was really high and you wouldn’t be able to tell that she had all that stuff going on. She did look frail, though. She was being helped around on stage by her bodyguard. But she really seemed to be putting on a brave face. She never addressed what’s going on with her husband.”
Williams’ problems at home
This hospitalization occurred just hours after it was reported that her husband Kevin Hunter’s alleged mistress Sharina Hudson had given birth. Williams has not commented on whether Hunter is the father of Hudson’s baby.
