Wendy Williams' husband, Kevin Hunter, has spoke out about the talk show host's battle with sobriety in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier.
"Wendy is doing well. We're doing well as a family," Hunter said of the 54-year-old star's recent confession that she's been living in a sober house as a result of her former addiction to cocaine. "It is a family process. Anybody that has to deal with this knows this a family process... and we are dealing with it and moving forward."
While William and Hunter have held a lengthy marriage since 1997, the two have become a hot topic themselves, with rumors that he has cheated on the TV personality. According to her Tuesday revelation, Hunter and their son, Kevin Hunter Jr., were the only ones that knew about her sober living situation. "So, this is my autobiographical story, and I'm living it. I'm telling you this," she said during the episode. "After I go to the Pilates, I go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area... I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to the home that I live in, here in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family."
After making the big reveal, a source close to the situation told ET that she wanted to share her struggles to keep line with her agenda to always keep it real. "Wendy 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 (as this is such a private struggle), but it’s too important a topic to ignore," the insider explained. "She is known for keeping it real, and felt the need to keep it real for her fans."
