Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams has had a very difficult year with her health and now it has been reported that she has been hospitalized after an alleged alcohol relapse.
According to multiple outlets, Williams checked herself out of her sober living house, which she recently revealed she was living in, on Monday, March 25 and was found drunk shortly after. The 54-year-old who also suffers from Grave’s Disease was taken to the hospital to help sober up. She was given a bag of IV fluids used as a treatment for vitamin and electrolyte deficiencies in patients with chronic alcohol use.
Despite these shocking reports, nothing seemed amiss with the host when she returned to her show on Tuesday, March 26 and reports indicate she checked back into her sober living facility.
Williams relapse has been linked to unconfirmed reports that Williams’ husband of over 20 years Kevin Hunter and his alleged mistress Sharina Hudson welcomed a baby boy. While it seems that 33-year-old Hudson did have a baby, it has not been confirmed that Hunter was cheating or that he is the father of the child.
Williams was previously absent from her talk show from January until March 4 due to a fractured should and her battle with Grave’s Disease. In mid-March she then revealed that she had been living in a sober facility.
“You know me for being a very open and truthful person and I’ve got more to the story for you. You know [my husband] Kevin [Hunter] and I have The Hunter Foundation for the good of the people. We recently launched our 888-5 HUNTER number for those of you caught up in the struggle of addiction. Well, for some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house,” Williams said through tears. “When you see me come to work glammed up, right after the show I go across the street, I do my Pilates. I told you – two hours a day or [so], to take care of my body.”
She continued: “You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past. 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.”
