Not one to shy away from talking about hot topics, Williams addressed her personal problems on air Monday. The talk show host opened up her hot topics segment noting the irony of how her show addresses the hot topics and now she, herself, is the hot topic. She joked: “Their business is our business. It’s been the motto of the hot topics bureau since the show was invented during our six-week sneak peek 11 years ago… And it’s so crazy because now my business is your business… Turnabout’s a fair game. I get it.”
Williams told her audience that she had a good weekend spending time with friends from her sober house. She has also been spending time with her sister. Williams revealed that she will be getting out of the sober house in a few days and that the time there has helped her evaluate every compartment of her life. She says she is busy planning the future for her and her son.

Many wondered how Hunter would respond to the rumors of his infidelity and controlling behavior. The executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show finally released a statement in regards to his impending divorce.
“I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family
It appears that Hunter is taking responsibility for his actions and plans to work towards repairing his relationship with Williams. Whether he intends to continue a business relationship with Williams or will be amicable during the divorce proceedings remains to be seen.
What we do know is that Williams has the support of many around her and can use all the help that she can get. The talk show host has a long road ahead as she tries to figure out what her life and business looks like moving forward, all while she continues to focus on her sobriety.
