Wendy Williams is pushing through all of the adversity in her life and showing us that there is life after turmoil and heartbreak.
Last week most of us rejoiced after the news broke that the TV host was finally walking away from her marriage to her manager, Kevin Hunter after 22 years. On Monday, she subtly addressed the news, but also maintained that she will continue her sobriety journey for the sake of her and her son Kevin.
“It’s been the motto of the hot topic bureau since the show was invented during our six-week sneak peak 11 years ago and it’s so crazy because Now my business is your business,” Williams said with a chuckle at the top of her Hot Topics segment.
“Turnabout’s a fair game, I get it,” she continued.
Last month Williams shocked her fans when she revealed that she was in the throes of an addiction struggle, yeas after battling a previous addiction to cocaine.
Williams went on to explain that she spent the weekend hanging out with six of her close girlfriends from the sober house and also spent some quality time with her sister.
“I’m moving out of sober house in just a few days you know, it will be Wendy on her own,” she said as the crowd erupted in loud cheers and applause.
“I have to tell you, you know, I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction, alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I planned for myself and my son,” she continued. “Believe me you, when you lay in a room with no TV and four gray walls all day … this is my life in the sober house, it’s one of the best things, honestly, that could have ever happened to me.”
She made no mention of Big Kevin, which made it crystal clear that he was not part of the plan. While she has never confirmed the rumors that an alleged affair and possible outside baby led to the couple’s breakdown, her divorce filing was proof enough that she had come to the end of their tumultuous marriage.
“You wear a different mask when you’re out here,” she said. “Everybody has things in their life that they’re … not ready to share with the world.”
“Addressing my sobriety, my addiction, head-on has really helped me sort out every single compartment of my life,” she said. “I have a commitment to me and my son to come out of here better, stronger and faster than ever.”
We commend Williams for taking this step and only wish her the best during this new transition.
