Wendy Williams opened up about her struggles with cocaine abuse in a segment on Tuesday's "Wendy Williams Show". The daytime talk Diva stunned viewers with her tearful admission about her history of drug abuse.

Williams, 54, told the shocked audience about her struggles with drugs and alcohol. She admitted she was living in a sober house, and that the excuses her rep gave about her thyroid issues were just to cover up for her substance abuse.

She has said she was a "functioning addict" who would party all night during her heady days as New York's most popular female radio host.

"So you know me for being a very open and truthful person," Williams said.

Williams broke down and cried before noting that her family foundation had just launched a substance abuse hotline. "Well, for some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house."

She revealed she still has a 24-hour sober coach on call. She did not specify whether she was being treated for cocaine addiction. She explained that after taping her show, she does Pilates for two hours to curb the urges to use drugs. She also attends "several meetings" around the Tri-state area.

She said the other substance abusers at the sober house didn't recognize her.

"And I see my brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction an looking for help," she said. "They don't know I'm Wendy, they don't care I'm Wendy, there's no autographs, there's no nothing. It's the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle and it's been really interesting, this ride."

Williams said her husband, Kevin Hunter, and son, Kevin Jr. have been supportive about her treatment, but she didn't tell the rest of her family.

"Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew," she said before breaking into a smile: "Because I look so glamorous out here."

She described her prison-like conditions at the sober house, where she lived during tapings of her show.

"Doors locked by 10 p.m., lights out by 10 p.m. So I go to my room and I stare at my ceiling and I fall asleep to wake up to come back here to see you," she said. "So that is my truth."

In December, Williams showed up on set wearing her right arm in a sling. She never explained what caused her injury, but she apologized for her "less than stellar" show, and she promised to return as a new woman after the winter break.

"I promise you a better Wendy in 2019," she said in a post on Instagram.com. "I will get some much needed rest and healing over these next couple of weeks."

Wendy frustrated her viewers by pushing back her return date multiple times. She finally made her 2019 debut in March.

    You know I would feel sorry ...... but I don't Wendy because your still lying bout some shyt ..... but at least you admitted your addictions because .... you know damn well .... but carry on !!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif

    well...I am NOT a fan of Wendy....but glad she is getting help....hopes this makes her think twice before poking fun at other folks substance abuse....and how she talks shit about folks that are going through that......STILL not a fan of hers....soooo...... (insert Kanye shrug)

    Yes indeed! Lol

  • Connie

    The trigger!

  • Renee26

    Yeah cause being an addict she shouldn't have taken any pain pills... His antics are a trigger for her. How can she get sober with the same stressor around her?? There's more to this story

  • wonderwoman

    Wish her well, but this isn’t her truth. If she was telling her truth, when she returned to her show, she would have told her truth then. I believe it has everything to do with Howard Stern, and what he knows.

  • iWasteTime

    I have two family members that are functioning abusers.
    One hits that glass pipe from Friday at 7 pm to Sunday at 7 pm then goes to work Monday Morning by 9.
    I have so many questions for them but it's been their thing for years!

  • hottlanta

    Did she hold the ring the one that she paid for herself with the money she pays her husband as an employee up in the air 2 show the world that her n her husband r still together.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Miss me with the distraction. Child spill the beans and own the truth about your abusive, cheating husband and soon to be stepshild. We already knew you was/is a dope head addict..

  • Jordan’s Memory

    hmmm you may be on to something because he ripped her a new arsehole!

  • EasyBreezy

    You are 100% on point. She is telling what's already been found out and was going public (she wanted to get in front of it.... The back story is still under scrutiny (if you don't believe her husband left her for the massage therapist and the two of them are now living together -as evidenced by recent pictures and legal documents). #gossipIsExhausting

  • Coy little wink
  • IAINTMADATCHA

    If she was a "functioning addict", what was the reason for her entering the "sober house"? Isn't a functioning addict able to function in normal DLAs?

  • EasyBreezy

    Yep!

  • SomeonesMrs

    Literally no one is surprised

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile Wendy still full of shyt ..... and that staged marriage .... chile ...... it's not fitting her persona anymore because that Tea has been spilled that he has a whole nother life with another woman ..... she should just say my marriage was just for my image and with that image came abuse addictions and projections on to other people because she wasn't happy living a damn lie .... I see clean through Wendy chile ...... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9f34da3e46b4f75aef74b115fe15b2585166030f4800f6ddbd6d102ba85d0edc.gif

  • SoChlo

    I also believe Charlemagne is about to drop the dime on her and her husband as well. He told Angela Yee that the other shoe was about to drop on them and shouted out Sharina or whatever Kevin’s girlfriend’s name is.

  • http://realitytea.com Goddess

    Wendy is so inauthentic. She is only talking because the Daily Mail was breaking the story. Until she sit in that purple chair and come clean with all of her baggage she will lose viewers.

  • iWasteTime

    He's not going to say anything. The dime dropping goes both ways with them but Sharina is having a baby and allegedly looking to get in to reality TV. She's over being on the low

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    That's exactly what it is ... and you know she read Sandy blog .... (Hey Wendy) I know she saw the tea was spilled in da comment section bout that broke arm ..... and that she was high as a kite and that's how she fell https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1b8b91ab8f1bc715d3993ac6ce0da08c5dc45579b7067cfe695378ea2bf1b992.gif and that living that lie led her to a host of other shyt .... her staff know da tea ... probably threatened to tell if she didn't show back up ..... could u imagine if one of them come out on wendy considering she can be nasty to them from time to time

  • Pamela

    Blessings Wendy. We still need you. Prayers.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Well hopefully the Daily Mail will have some extra tea that Wendy didn't spill about herself. But I guess if I was her I would have done the same thing and jumped in front of the rumor that way you can control and spin it if you need too and she seems like she is doing just that to gain sympathy, A rumor isn't as juicy when it comes from the horses mouth. Just like another commenter said if she was sincere she would have told her audience the day she came back why she was gone so long.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Good for her.
    God Bless her.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    and her eyes are completely dilated.... was high then

  • Pamela

    Just stop it Nancy. Have a little compassion for our delightful Wendy. Please.

  • GAPeach

    So she could get sober. She could still go out and about and work, etc. If she was in rehab, it would be just 24/7 rehabbing.

  • Trace da Ace

    chile..... I am sooo here for somebody on her staff airing out the TRUTH....about everything!!!

  • Pamela

    Yeh, she even gained some weight .

  • Mary

    I agree. I don't believe the story she spoke on today - she is looking for ratings. If she is in a "sober house" so am I. When Howard Stern spoke on her drama last week - she knew the WHOLE truth would be told. He knows the real deal.

  • Bossy704

    Wendy been on that stuff for decades. Since she was doing radio. She admitted it. Wrote books about it. No one should be shocked about her struggle.

  • more

    She is brave

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Get well Wendy. Only you know your battle and struggles.

  • wonderwoman

    I’ve seen this a million times, and have the same reaction every time.???

  • hottlanta

    I thought l was high when l heard n saw it for myself that donna brazil gonna be collecting her coins at fox news. Wow.

  • Li-Wright

    Somebody explain this to me....Was Wendy off the air because she was recovering from alcoholism....Or was Wendy in the Sober house because she's sober and is doing it for charity?

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Li-Wright

    That's what I want to know. I don't understand if she was confessing that she was an addict and in the sober house to stay off the stuff....or was she in the house for charitable purposes? She kept pitching her charity 5Hunter....*confused*

  • Rere

    I'm sorry, Wendy looks horrible ??.

  • NeverSurprised

    She's recovering from coke. She's still in the sober house. She sleeps there each night with other recovering addicts.

  • Li-Wright

    Daily Mail is always on the case!

  • Rayscoty

    Wendy was up in the half way house without that wig on. I don't believe nobody recognized her.

    There ain't that many men out there looking like that ..

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Wendy knows her TRUTH and that's all that matters at this point. WHATEVER her situation, WHATEVER she is willing to Share or NOT...
    I just pray for her Healing and well-being.

  • Li-Wright

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6822585/Wendy-Williams-staying-sober-living-home-alcohol-prescription-pill-addiction.html
    Here it is....Okay, I understand now. She did the Confessional because she's a drunk! :) and that's why she was off the air those times.
    She's holding onto her man come hell or high water....I wonder if there's a pre-nup?

  • Blue

    Ouch!

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    I guess the real question is what caused her to want to go sober. Functioning addicts normally don't just decide stop.....or do they?

  • GAPeach

    Honestly, would you just want to be addicted if you didn't have to be? It's not like its a healthy lifestyle, or has some kind of positive benefits.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I am done with you! lol

  • joel adams

    Auntie: I TOLD you Wendy still on drugs.

  • joel adams

    She fainted on air because she was high. She’s a functional coke head. And this covers up her pending divorce from her husband regarding their personal issues.

    So what’s this I keep hearing about my precious Avant? I still fawk with him the long way.

    I couldn't find it

  • Truth7981

    And Kevin can care less. That dude is livg his best life while she is at a sober house. The same way she flashed that gaudy ring to symbolize her shame of marriage he flashing that mistress to show Wendy ain't shit! I believe Kevin got something heavy on Wendy she doesn't want to be exposed. I don't feel sorry for her. She is a nasty person getting what she deserves.

  • leapyearpisces

    Right. This is what Public Relations calls "getting ahead of the story" (rolls eyes). So fake and phony. Just keep it a buck and say you were a recovering functional crackhead that was driven back to being a functional crackhead, pill popper and drunk by your no good husband and your sister-wife who refuses to stay hidden. I hate when people give HALF stories. Either tell it all, or don't.

    My bf has a son who overeats and she let's him and she also rewards him with food and sweets then turns around and makes snide remarks about him being fat...or his big booty and wide back... He's 5. I told her it's her fault and she either needs to set boundaries or STFU teasing him.

  • Wreckognize Game

    It’s interesting that she has launched a foundation and is now claiming to live in a sober house. I just hope she gets help for whatever her real truth is.

  • country57

    Yep, they told her put that story out before TMZ does.

  • JNation

    It took a whole lot of courage for her to admit her addiction, again. Less judgement and more thoughts her way. Addiction is hard, and I hope she beats this demon.

  • Wreckognize Game

    The Daily Mail is claiming they contacted her asking questions then she spilled it today herself. If Kevin was my husband I would sleep somewhere else too while I get my legal stuff together to roll out on his azz.

  • Soon2BWife

    Right, the levels to her ego are pretty outrages. It’s going to take more than a sober house sweetie and no amount of “glamour” could cover up your addiction. This is not news, we already knew this. What your viewers are looking for is total transparency like you forced on a many of celebs through confrontational interviews and plain on gossip. So until you stand on your own soap box, you are cancelled. Oh and btw those people in the sober house knew who you where however they were respecting your privacy and theirs. It’s call decorum something you lack.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Dearest Wendy,

    You will NEVER be happy or at peace until you clean up that vile spirit.

  • NeverSurprised

    I think it's a bit of everything. She has an awful lot on her plate. Physical illnesses, the show, the clothing and shoe lines (with which I know she was more involved than most celebrities usually are). Add to that the husband, the mistress, the baby supposedly on the way, and I think I remember something about her son having been involved with drugs at some point (that alone would be enough to cripple me emotionally).

    My point is, I think all of the stresses snowballed and probably led her back to drugs just to escape. Who knows.

  • NeverSurprised

    ?????????
    Well said!!!!

  • ALLMINE?

    Doesnt everyone have unresolved issues? Tf

  • joel adams

    Just like young wanna be rappers steal chains from others and snitch on themselves for clout, THIS is what people do to STAY relevant. The pic of her leaving or going in the facility in that GIGANTIC puffy white coat with her eyes bulging out her skull is EVERYTHING. We CANNOT be for sure as to the WHY of all this but she puts a lot of work into covering up her personal issues like she does them edges. I refuse to believe a hairline fracture and pain pills is why she in the clinic. “In her “head”, COKE enables her to gossip and talk smack the way she does. Shes a functional drug addict. No judgement. Ion care what her marital issues are. She likes the coke.

Him so cute you can't help but to give in, and he thinks he's a WHOLE human https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/775df0c2f62831d7be8c21a1949f3750746ee19ba427a783b0c60adcf101e472.jpg ...I feel bad now. LOL.

  • HoneyHitchcock

    I’m sure that Kevin loves that they lock her in her bedroom at night. Focus on yourself Wendy, not your husband and his jump off, not celebrities and the gossip that surrounds them, focus on You and your path toward recovery.

  • samuel severino

    I have specifically said for over a year that her issues were cocaine and not Graves or anything else. I was clowned. When she was on “vacation” I said each time that she was in rehab. Same response. I have also said that I am a private trainer in Hollywood for over 15 years. So you often (all the time) hear and worse/better actually see some things. ????

    Other things I will never be able to say if I want to keep working and other things I can only hint at like when I described the type of coffin Mrs Porter was buried in and what was so unique about that as it pertained to the cover story. Just like this college admissions scam is all one big cover story of something much worse.

  • Ghost

    I just had the longest end of the day meeting and then I read this! ???! I love Wendy and I very sorry to hear she’s struggling! When it’s your job to Gossip about other people’s business...it’s very HARD to gossip about yourself...Yeah...I know she comes down hard on folks but she wouldn’t be Wendy if she didn’t! Let her take her baby steps y’all...she knows she has to come clean to her fans but right now she’s dealing with some SERIOUS personal ?, trying to stay sober, trying to keep her coins, dealing with menopause, dealing with age...my lord...I know the lord don’t give you more then you can bear but ...WOW!

    ???????? For Wendy and everybody out there struggling to keep it together! Life is hard...no matter who you are..time for ?.....

    Glad l am not a ride or die chick. U ride me while l am dying.

  • prissa0

    I knew she was back on drugs when she was on Howard Stern’s show. She was way too hype. SMH. I hope she stays strong.

  • Stacey J

    I'd have a little more respect for her telling her truth if she hadn't done it only because the DailyMail was getting ready to run an article about it and had called her for comment. She was sharing her truth because she wanted to..she had to. You can't on one hand read people for filth for doing stuff like this but then when it comes down to your business try to hide it.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    This takes me back to that time when Judge Mathis dragged and read her. Get well soon, Wendy.

    No comment, no judgement, no speculation.... I’m just extending my prayers that Wendy will overcome this! ??

    Oh gosh how scary! Did Kim have HIV? I thought she died of overdose but because coffin was made in advance I said it couldn’t be that. Please shed some light on college scam. I’m too intrigued!

  • Malificent

    Amen!

    Exactly gossiping is a cause of anxiety because when you talk about people you gotta keep your house clean and you can’t because you can’t control Gods world and the people in it. I’ve lately been very careful about what I post and say because I know my house ain’t clean.

  • Malificent

    Wow you said it

  • Malificent

    I always remember her explaining what a Dutch oven was on one of her radio shows and how she would do it to her husband. Maybe that’s what he’s holding gainer her. ? and FYI a Dutch oven is when you fart under the covers and then cover your partners head with the blanket. ?

  • Malificent

    Yea it looked like something scared the be Jesus out of her. Now it makes sense.

  • Music

    I admire her for telling her OWN story before someone else jumps at the opportunity. I do think more is going on, which may have caused her to relapse, but you cant expect her to disclose all of her business. Baby steps.

  • SummerBaby

    Wait whet Wendy got a girlfriend?! ?

  • pure_rachet

    I just watched. I guess I’m the only one who thought she is doing the sober house/coach/meetings for research purposes for her foundation or a new book... she never said she is actually seeking treatment or anything. She just goes there.

  • MythCalledLove

    I hv a feeling that her issues may hv been she relapsed. That last pic is kind of sad. I know in DC she would roll out in the middle of her radio spot. Song playing then silence she did that a few times. She has had a hard time loving herself. She changes her body. Married a rolling stone. Then her son is the 2.0 version of her husband. I think she relapsed from the stress of her husband. He was also a drug for her. She didnt care about how he treated her.

    Wow. She is something else. I will not be tuning in.

  • samuel severino

    Maybe I can help guide you on the path to thinking a little differently about the case. Would you pay half a million dollars just to get your kid in school? Especially when your best friend sits on the board of trustees? Or even better, your best friend is the president of the trustees for that school? Do you think that you would still need to pay half a million? Especially when the news broke your daughter was on his yacht? With his daughter?

    wendy....shut cho ass up and go smoke sum crack

  • Shamwow

    IMO nearly everyone is a functional addict. Some have food, coffee , Xanax, alcohol, etc. sometimes the drugs are harder when things aren’t right within, but everyone is taking something of some kind trying to live life.

  • Yoni7

    She wasn't sharing "her truth" because she wanted to..she had to.

  • Vivlyn

    I feel as though she worded it a way that she can later change her story.

  • Vivlyn

    I totally agree!

  • Truth7981

    Bet half her intestines came out that flap Jack butt of hers

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Lies.... Lies... and MORE LIES!!! #FakeNews from the horse own mouth!

  • Truth7981

    I couldn't imagine not being able to partake in substances because of addiction. I dated this one guy who couldn't stand alcohol but said it was cool if I partook. Lame! Lame! Lame! It was like hanging out and then one of my brother's boys pop up. Yeah, you have a good time but side-eye being judged for your behavior. How much you want to bet Kevin got his mistress over there. Man, I had a friend who did everything but have sex with a goat to keep her husband ( and that's still up for debate). Pathetic

  • Rhyme and Reason

    A Big fat lie!

    I’m sorry, but Wendy is delusional, if she thinks she’s unrecognizable in person!

    Drug addicts are some of the slickest people, and she would be spotted.

    Wendy’s looking for sympathy with America’s opioid epidemic!

    Deflecting!

  • XoXo

    Thank you. And everyone that sits up there every day watching her spew hatred...are enablers!!!

  • Guest

    She worded that s**t just right! Took thought, she had to come up with something.

  • SayWhatNow?

    I could have sworn I head her say that when she got clean she did it with Gods help and she never had any treatment for it so that's why she was there for research for her foundation. But I guess we all interpret information differently.

  • Truth7981

    Yeah as the side show attraction

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    this is what happens when you BUILD a WHOLE CAREER from talking about EVERYBODY like DOGS, WENDY it's your turn now...to be dragged through the mud....the only reason she made this announcement is because it was going to be released to the press that she was in drug rehab...i think she's headed for a Nervous Breakdown eventually.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    True tea.

    Words and energy are powerful. I too try to be very careful with how I articulate myself. I want to make sure that when I speak I am of moral character.

    Wendy needs to take notes!

  • pika12

    I had the same thoughts. But she was kind of vague so it's possible that she just didn't want to come straight out and admit that she had a relapse or still has urges that she has to fight off. I think she was unclear and left the door open for people to make assumptions based on what wad said and not said. She could have clearly stated, "I'm staying there for research purposes only, not for treatment." But instead, the lack of such a clarifying statement along with her tears reasonably led most people to assume that it's more than just research. But who knows.

  • GirlSixx

    Smart Move Wendy.. Talk about your addiction so people will stop asking about your hubby and his pregnant mistress. #WellPlayed

  • Telley

    I knew she was on drugs!

  • SweetTEE

    ?? We see you Wendell.

  • joel adams

    Addictions come in many forms. Some abuse substances

  • joel adams

    Some people are addicted to social media

  • Maxx

    TRUTH

  • SweetTEE

    I think most people feel like she has no problem dogging other people so she IS obligated. A Genuine person would have no issue. And that's what makes people dislike her even more. She has the audacity to offer herself a courtesy that she doesn't extend to others.

  • Mr. Poopybutthole

    Had to go to Daily Mail for the real tea cuz Wendy is Not being fully truthful. https://media1.giphy.com/media/jlzdW8NhykKnm/giphy.gif

  • Mr. Poopybutthole

    Auntie knows she makes sure she pulls and posts the most supa ugleee pictures

  • XoXo

    Well, abusing drugs can cause other illnesses to your body. If not now, then later on in life. I know a couple of people that have previously abused drugs, and are now paying the price in their older age.

  • Lolly Asher

    Right. She has a lot to lose business-wise so she can't be on TV talking about how she was free basing crack over holiday break. I think she's saving the big reveals for a tell all interview when she's really ready. You not ready if you still in the sober house lights out at 10.

  • Renee26

    ? his little fat butt is too cute... Sitting there like a whole human

  • Renee26

    Agreed

  • TheWildChild

    ? This was back in the 90s in the studio, not sure it was visually taped, she was on the air. They later made up, prolly over a little coke ? cause she then later invited him on her show. I think she mentioned it in her first book ? too. But it was hot tea back in the day.

  • Renee26

  • Goodii2Shoes

    hiiii! ur posts entertaiiiiin me :) but most rich people these days have drug/alcohol/sex/control problems...

    to feel elitist by buying admission versus actually earning it sounds like their thing.

    but you mention something bigger going on & in the world of rich whites, you are probably cracking open a much bigger story :)
