Kevin Hunter shared with ET’s Kevin Frazier that he is focused on maintaining the Williams’ family amid his wife, Wendy Williams’ struggle with addiction.
Hunter said, “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. 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.”
Wendy revealed to viewers on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ that she had been living in a sober living house while seeking treatment for addiction.
Wendy tearfully stated, “So, this is my autobiographical story, and I’m living it. I’m telling you this. 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.”
Shortly after, Daily Mail reported that the host slipped into an alcohol and pill-fueled depression, reportedly sparked by her husband’s infidelities.
However, according to ET, a source said the TV host 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.”
