Daytime talk show host, Wendy Williams, broke down during her March 19 show after revealing she’s been living in a Sober House.

Williams has talked about the addiction she had to cocaine earlier in her career before. However, she never got help for her addiction until now.

The 57-year-old told “The Wendy Williams Show” audience:

You know Kevin and I have the Hunter Foundation for the good of the people, and we recently launched our 888-5Hunter number for those of you caught up in the struggle of addiction.

Well for sometime now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a Sober House. When you see me come to work glammed up, right after the show, I across the street, I do my pilates. I told you, two hours a day, I like to take care of my body.

And you know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past and I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don’t know how, accept God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.

An emotional Wendy continued:

“There are people in your family, it might be you, who have been struggling. And I want you to know more of the story.”

The host went on to describe what her days have been like since she started living at the Sober House.

She added that the only person who knew about her arrangement was her husband, Kevin, and her 24-hour sober coach:

“I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to a home that I live in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family.”

Wendy described her journey so far “as interesting”:

“Doors locked by 10 p.m., lights out by 10 p.m., so I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you.”

She concluded, “So that is my truth.”

    Glad she is doing ok now. Hopefully she can concentrate on her English language now – it is awful!

    Just another addicted celebrity. So, she is on her way to recovery while making big bugs having her own talk show! If only the society was more concerned with our vets who got hooked on drugs because of the terrible things they have witnessed while in the military. This one here is not newsworthy!
