Talk show host Wendy Williams admitted she’s currently living in what’s called a “sober house” to help deal with a past addiction to cocaine. During her show, which aired on Tuesday, she said, “Well, for some time now and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house. And you know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past. I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don’t know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.

News sources, including “TMZ” and the “Daily Mail.” Williams, 54, is currently being treated at a sober living home for an addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs. The addictions allegedly came about after the fractured her shoulder last December. Daily Mail also claims she checked into a detox facility in Florida during her unusually long break from the taping of her daytime talk show.

“Entertainment Tonight” says a source inside her camp says she revealed the situation on her show to try to quell the stories coming out in media such as “TMZ” and the “Daily Mail.” The source is quoted as saying: “Wendy Williams 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, but it’s too important a topic to ignore. She is know for keeping it real and felt the need to keep it real for her fans.”

After the reported shoulder incident, a spokesperson for Williams told the press that she was seeking treatment for complications from Graves disease. Then on March 4 she returned to the show after more than a month’s absence and said she was having thyroid issues. On Tuesday, she also addressed the rumors that her husband Kevin Hunter and her were splitting up due to rumors he was having an affair with a massage therapist. She said she intends to stay married. She pointed to her wedding ring and said, “It ain’t going anywhere, not in this lifetime.”

Of course, social media lit up with the news. While some posted word of confusion and criticism, others issued words of encouragement and called Williams “brave.” She also received support from celebrities, including Don Lemon, Meghan McCain (of “The View”) and Tamron Hall, who is launching her own TV talk show this Fall.
