‘Nobody knew': Wendy Williams says she's been living in sober house

- Talk show host Wendy Williams announced to her television audience Tuesday that she has been living in a sober house after facing up to past struggles with addiction.

"I would report to work on time and I walked in and all of my co-workers, and including my bosses, would know but instead of firing me, you see, I would grab my headphones and arrogantly walk into the studio and dare them to fire me because I was making ratings", she said at the time.

Williams said that until today, only her husband and son knew of her treatment.

From there, she spoke about her use of cocaine in her past, while emphasizing that she never went to place to get the treatment that she desperately needed. "I don't know how, except god was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped", she continued. I told you two hours a day I like to take care of my body.

The morning talk show host opened up about her struggles with addiction because she is an open and honest person.

"There are people in your family, it might be you, who have been struggling, and I wanted to know more of the story. They don't care I'm Wendy", she added. It's the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle and it's been really interesting this ride. It appears as though she was also dealing with addiction during that time off.

She continued, "Only Kevin [Hunter, Sr., her husband] and Kevin [Jr., her son] know about this". She originally said she was stepping away to focus on health issues stemming from Graves' disease, an autoimmune disorder that causes overstimulation of the thyroid.

Multiple guest hosts including Jerry O'Connell and Nick Cannon helped host the show in her absence. "After I finish my appointments ..."

Last July, Williams opened up to ET about her previous battle with cocaine, calling herself "a functioning addict".

Following the meetings, she said, she is driven by her 24-hour sober coach to her New York-area sober house "with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family".

"I go to my room, and I stare at the ceiling, and I fall asleep to wake up and come back here to see you", Williams confessed.
