Wendy Williams Taken to Hospital After Alcohol Relapse: Reports
Wendy Williams reportedly left a sober living facility Monday.
Wendy Williams was reportedly taken to the hospital after she was allegedly found intoxicated Monday.
"For some time now, I have been living in a sober house,” she told her stunned viewers. “You know I struggled with cocaine in the past and never got treatment."
Williams said she'd kept the secret from everyone except her husband, Kevin Hunter, and son. "Only Kevin knows about this. Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here,” she said.
However, Williams reportedly left the living facility Monday amid reports that her husband's alleged longtime mistress had given birth to his child. After she was found, she was given IV fluids, according to reports, and still showed up to film her show Tuesday. Williams and Hunter have previously denied that the alleged mistress was pregnant with his baby.
A source told Page Six: “Wendy is not in a good way, everyone is so concerned for her. The sad thing is that she’s been working so hard to stay sober and she’s been so honest in her struggles with all her fans.
"... This just tipped her over the edge."
Following Williams' revelation last week, fans and celebrity friends showered her with support and commended her bravery.
Katie Couric was Williams' first guest after she shared the news and praised the host for being open and honest.
"I’m so proud of you," Couric said. “That was a hard thing to do. I felt for you, and I think your candor and honesty is going to help so many people.”
Among others who voiced their support, Tamron Hall tweeted that Williams' "journey will inspire so many people in the same situation," while CNN's Don Lemon called her the "bravest woman I know."
Williams has since returned to the facility.
Inside Edition has reached out to Williams' representative for comment.
