Wendy Williams Discloses Residence In Sober House, Struggle With Addiction

Wendy Williams is seeking treatment for addiction, she revealed on her show Tuesday. "But there are people in your family, it might be you, who have been struggling and I want to know more of the story".

"Well, for some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house", Williams continued. 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... "I know what you've been seeing and I know what the streets have been talking about". "So this is my autobiographical story, and I'm living it, and I'm telling you this".

Her direct-to-camera address (watch it below) came just as a British tabloid was set to publish an article about Williams' treatment, with photos of the talk host entering what it said was a NY area sober living residential facility.

Williams went on to say that after she does pilates after work, she goes to "several meetings all around town" with her "brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction and looking for help". "They don't know I'm Wendy". And we talk and read and talk and read and then I get bored with them.

The host apparently opted to come clean about the sober house situation after Daily Mail contacted her earlier today to confirm their report; at that point, she "broke down in tears" during the taping and opened up to her fans about her personal struggles. She originally said she was stepping away to focus on health issues stemming from Graves' disease, an autoimmune disorder that causes overstimulation of the thyroid.

The alleged attacker referenced Trump in his 70-page manifesto, calling him a "symbol of renewed white identity". She urged Trump to use his bully pulpit to denounce the movement.

She also must adhere to the facility's rules, which requires all residents to return to their rooms with lights out by 10 p.m. It's been really interesting.

She continued, "Only Kevin [Hunter, Sr., her husband] and Kevin [Jr., her son] know about this".

"After I finish my appointments. It's the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle". "So that is my truth".

If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, the National Drug Hotline is 1-888-633-3239 and offers 24/7 drug and alcohol help to those struggling with addiction.

Williams talked about her everyday routine and how she has learned to battle her addiction, according to Entertainment Tonight.
