"You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in the past," she told her audience on the March 19 episode of The Wendy Williams Show. The television personality added that, though her life may look glamorous from the outside: "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."
And though it seemed like Williams' newfound family was helping her to heal, a shocking story surfaced just days ago that surely caused an emotional setback.
It's been rumored for years that Williams' husband Kevin Hunter has a mistress named Sharina Hudson. Now, Hudson has given birth to a baby girl, who is presumably Hunter's daughter.
Amid the revelations, Williams was reportedly hospitalized after her staff found her drunk on Monday. According to The Daily Mail, an emotionally distraught Williams had disappeared from her television studio, which caused concern among her staff. A source said:
"She was in a bad way and disappeared from the studio after her show Monday. She went back to the sober house only to check herself out and decided to start drinking. It's not clear where she went but she headed in the direction of her home in Jersey and managed to find alcohol along the way. Word got back to the studio and there was panic and concern, everyone was looking for her, no one knew whether there would be a show [on Monday.] She was eventually found and was drunk, she was immediately taken to the hospital."
At the hospital, Williams was allegedly treated with IV fluids. She was back on air for her talk show by Tuesday.
