Wendy Williams was reportedly hospitalized this week.
According to Daily Mail, the Wendy Williams Show host, who revealed she'd been residing in a sober living house on her program last week, was supposedly found drunk and had to be rushed to the hospital after checking out of the facility on Monday (March 25).
There, Williams was supposedly treated with a banana bag -- a pouch of IV fluids containing vitamins and minerals to clear a person's system and helps sober them up. The Daily Mail indicates Williams' relapse may have been triggered by reports that her husband Kevin Hunter's alleged younger mistress, a massage therapist named Hudson, 33, had birthed their baby girl last week.
"She was in a bad way and disappeared from the studio after her show Monday," a source told Daily Mail. "She went back to the sober house only to check herself out and decided to start drinking."
"It's not clear where she went but she headed in the direction of her home in Jersey and managed to find alcohol along the way," the source continued. "Word got back to the studio and there was panic and concern, everyone was looking for her, no one knew whether there would be a show today."
Despite her reported downward turn, her team noticed nothing amiss with the 54-year-old star during Tuesday's taping, said an insider, adding that "everyone was amazed that she made it into the studio this morning to do the show."
The reports come a week after the diva addressed her past battle with a cocaine addiction.
Williams spoke about her hiatus in her comeback to the show earlier this month after being away since January, citing medical adjustments related to her thyroid disease and Graves' disease as the cause for her extended absence.
"I'm happy to tell you that I am doing swell," Williams told the audience in an update before addressing the on-going rumors about her husband's alleged affair. "I want to shout out to my husband. I'm still wearing my ring," she continued, flaunting her rock. "Believe me you, when you've been with somebody for 28 years...married for 25 years...we know each other. He's my best friend, he's my lover, he's all this and he's all that."
