Now that Wendy Williams has filed for divorce, the talk show host is beginning to address some of the scandal in her life.
While she didn’t directly speak out about filing for divorce on Monday’s show, she referenced her split in a few subtle ways — and made clear she’s single.
Returning to her morning show for the first time since news of the split broke last Thursday, Williams was met with a thunderous applause from her studio audience as she asked “How youdoin?” She then repeated the show’s motto, “Their business is our business,” adding, “It’s funny because now my business is your business. Turnabout’s a fair game. I get it.”
Diving into Hot Topics, she talked about how she spent the weekend with her sober sisters.
“I had a really good weekend, I got together with my girls. I told you I have my sober friends, I have six of them that are really good and two of them are my sponsors,” she explained. “They came over to the sober house this weekend and they like wrap sandwiches, but I had the leftover from TAO. Just sayin’ …”
Williams said she had also spent time with her sister, who came up from Miami for support. “She’s talking and pow-wowing with me. It’s always nice to spend time with your sister,” said Wendy. “They correct some of the things you do wrong and they help you when you’re not doing enough and they tell you how to do it.”
It’s then that Wendy revealed she’ll be “moving out of sober house in just a few days.”
“You know, it’ll be Wendy on her own,” she said. “I have to tell you, you know I’ve been dealing with issues with addiction, alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I planned for myself and my son.”
Notice she did not mention her ex.
She then said being in the sober house has really helped put things into perspective for her. “Believe me you, when you lay in a room with no TV and four grey walls all day and no telephone and you lay there and think about your life, this is my life at the sober house, it’s one of the best things, honestly that could have ever happened to me,” she said.
“Because you know when you think about your life, you think about how you’ve been delivering to the world, especially here on the show,” she added, before thanking her viewers for watching every day.
“Addressing my sobriety, my addiction head on has really helped me sort out every single compartment of my life,” Wendy continued, sipping her tea. “I have a commitment to me and my son to come out of here better, stronger and faster than ever.”
Later in the show, Williams threw a little subtle shade at Kevin and his alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, having a baby. While talking about “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Vicki Gunvalson’s new relationship, she said the reality star isn’t having any more kids and is “dried up, in a good way.”
“I mean that in the best way,” she continued. “Women who’ve crossed through menopause, the one thing we never have to worry about again is that. Because I don’t know about you, but my diaper changing days are over.” She then sipped her tea again and added, “moving on.”
She also let her studio know she’s on the prowl again when talking about a video of Cardi B on the red carpet, with a good-looking security guard in the background.
“I was distracted by that chocolate gum drop over Cardi’s shoulder. Back it up now, I’m on the loose,” she joked. “I would be calling in the middle of the night, because [her son] Kevin is away at school. I would be like, ‘Hello security, Wendy security bureau, wake up that cutie and send him over here. I just heard a bump in the night.'”
