Wendy Williams returned to her talk show recently after an extended leave, and on Tuesday, she announced on the Wendy Williams Show that she's living in a sober house and has a 24-hour sobriety coach. "You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in the past," she said, per People. "I never went to a place to get treatment" until now. While fighting back tears, she noted that only her husband was previously aware. "Only Kevin knows about this. Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here," she said before urging anyone who is struggling with addiction to call her foundation's hotline for help. (More Wendy Williams stories.)
