“Wendy is doing well. We’re doing well as a family. We are moving forward with working on her sobriety and doing the work to help others, not just ourselves,” said Hunter, who has been married to Williams since 1997. “It is a family process. Anybody that has to deal with this knows this a family process… and we are dealing with it and moving forward.”
As we reported earlier this week, Williams revealed to viewers that she was seeking treatment for addiction, and living in a sober living house. We’ve also learned that earlier this month, Williams and Hunter started the 888-5HUNTER hotline, to aid those affected by drug addiction and substance abuse. She said that only her husband and son knew about her sober living situation.
“So, this is my autobiographical story, and I’m living it. I’m telling you this,” Williams’ said on Tuesday’s episode, through tears. “After I go to the Pilates, I go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area… I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to the home that I live in, here in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family.”
The sober living place is just that. The doors are locked and the lights are turned out at 10 p.m.
“So I go to my room, and I stare at the ceiling and I fall asleep to wake up and come back here to see you. So that is my truth,” she shared, to applause from the audience. “I know, either you are calling me crazy or the bravest woman you know. I don’t care.”
A source says that after Wendy’s emotional revelation, she just wanted to be truthful with her fans.
“Wendy has been brave enough to make herself the face of addiction. It’s a disease and a very real and constant fight. It’s been extremely difficult to put herself out there and be vulnerable (as this is such a private struggle), but it’s too important a topic to ignore,” the source said. “She is known for keeping it real, and felt the need to keep it real for her fans.”

*Wendy Williams is reportedly bankrolling her husband’s second life with his alleged pregnant mistress.
A source told the publication that Hudson has demanded her married boyfriend leave his wife so they can settle down and start a family together.
However, Hunter — who manages Wendy’s career — allegedly can’t hold it down without his wife’s money.
The insider claims: “Kevin is in love with Sharina but he told her he can’t leave his wife, but the only reason he is still with Wendy is because he and Sharina can’t take care of themselves – they need her money… Sharina has given Kevin several ultimatums over the years and he’s had to point out, ‘we can’t afford to take care of ourselves.’”
