Wendy Williams is her own Hot Topic again. On The Wendy Williams Show Monday, she referenced the segment’s motto—”Their business is our business”—in a frank talk that addressed her split from estranged husband Kevin Hunter.
Laughing, she said: “It’s crazy ’cause now my business is your business. It’s kind of funny. Turnabouts a fair game, I get it.”
She said she’d had a “really good weekend” with friends from the sober-living facility she’s been staying at in Queens, but that she’d be looking for digs of her own soon. While she and Hunter shared a home in Livingston, N.J., she is looking for a place in NYC, Page Six reports.
“I’m moving out of the sober house in just a few days, you know,” Williams shared. “It’ll be Wendy on her own.”
She also admitted that while she’d been open about her struggles with addiction, she’d been less so about her marital strife. Despite ongoing reports that Hunter had cheated on her for 10 years, and even welcomed a child with his mistress, she’d maintained a united front for too long.
She continued: “I have to tell you, I have to tell you, you know, I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction, alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I planned for myself and my son. Believe me you, when you lay in a room with no TV and four gray walls all day and no telephone and you lay there and think about your life and this is my life in the sober house, it’s one of the best things, honestly, that could have ever happened to me. You think about your life and how you’ve been delivering to the world, especially on this show, it’s no secret, we’re friends and sometimes you don’t like but, but either way, thank you for watching every day. Everyone wears a mask no matter who you are, even if you’re a secretary. Everybody has things in their life that they’re embarrassed to share with the world, or they’re frightened to share with the world, or they’re not ready to share with the world and addressing my sobriety, my addiction, head on has really helped me sort out every single compartment of my life.”
