‘It’ll be Wendy on her own’: Wendy Williams announces move from sober house
The news comes just days after she filed for divorce.
Fans of daytime diva Wendy Williams have anxiously been waiting for her to speak out following last week’s reports that she and her husband of 22 years decided to called it quits.
The famed media personality certainly delivered when she broke her silence on Monday’s The Wendy Williams Show. News of Williams’ filing for divorce from Kevin Hunter rocked social media and she acknowledged as much on the show, telling the audience: “It’s crazy ’cause now my business is your business,” Williams said with a laugh, PEOPLE wrote.
“It’s kind of funny. Turnabout’s a fair game, I get it,” she added.
Williams also announced that she is “moving out of the sober house in just a few days,” adding “It’ll be Wendy on her own,” the report said.
Last month, Williams revealed on-air that she has been living in a sober house while she gets her addiction in check. The former radio DJ shared that her husband was the only person who knew she was seeking treatment.
“I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction, alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I planned for myself and my son,” she said on Monday’s show. Williams went on to confess that life in the sober house was “one of the best things, honestly, that could have ever happened to me.”
Hunter allegedly fathered a child with Sharina Hudson, and pictures surfaced of the two on a beach vacation.
Williams reportedly filed the papers after Hunter confessed to the affair.
A rep for the estranged couple released the following statement to PEOPLE following news of their divorce: “Thank you to everyone for respecting the family’s privacy during this time. Kevin is supportive of Wendy and they are working through this process together.”
Williams and Hunter tied the knot on Nov. 30, 1997, and share a 19-year-old son, Kevin Jr., 19.
