Wendy Williams is being secretly treated at a sober living residential facility for addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs.
The 54-year-old daytime talk show host is staying overnight at a private facility run by the Pure Recovery Network in Long Island City, New York.
And in a bombshell discovery the star plunged into an alcohol- and pill-fueled depression after fracturing her shoulder during a confrontation with her cheating husband Kevin Hunter, 47.
Later she broke down in tears on her show on Tuesday morning, admitting she had been living at the sober home and was attending meetings around New York City.
The revelation flies in the face of Williams’ public claim her extended break from The Wendy Williams Show was for ‘medical reasons’.
She later clarified that she was g
rappling with complications surrounding her Graves’ disease, which effects the thyroid, and a fractured shoulder.
But it’s now believed Williams’
personal problems run much deeper.
Wendy’s troubles began last December when the star hired a private investigator to spy on her husband who she suspected was still carrying on with his mistress Sharina Hudson.
After being told the secret affair was still very much alive, the TV host confronted Hunter demanding to know why he was still seeing the 33-year-old qualified massage therapist.
During the heated clash, it’s believed Williams fell and hit her shoulder on the ground, suffering a hairline fracture.
Devastated, Williams quickly plunged into a depression while recovering from the injury and began drinking heavily.
Here’s hoping everything gets back on track. You’re a role model, Wendy and I’m glad your letting people see this side of things.
