In a very honest moment, Wendy Williams told her audience she's been living in a sober home. The moment came while she was talking about her non-profit that focuses on drug addiction.

Williams, a US daytime talk show host, explained that after filming, she does her pilates, and then attends several addiction meetings to observe before being taken to the sober house.


The only people who knew were her husband and son.


Williams talked about her previous addiction to cocaine, particularly how she never received treatment for it and was able to stop on her own in the past.

Her statements did not confirm or deny if her living situation was to ensure she doesn't relapse, or if it was to get a better sense of people who do have to go through therapy to become sober.

As she described it,

"You know I've had a struggle with cocaine in my past, and I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don't know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.
"There are people in your family, it might be you, who've been struggling and I wanted to know more of the story. So this is my autobiographical story and I'm living it."

People online have praised Williams for giving these people a voice.





Williams continues her emotional talk, detailing her daily routine.

"After I go to the Pilates and go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area and I see my brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction and looking for help. They don't know I'm Wendy. They don't care I'm Wendy.
"It's the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle. It's been really interesting, this ride."

Afterwards, she says she's driven by her 24-hour sober coach to the house, where she stays. Her roommates are a "bunch of smelly boys" who she says have become like family.

Doors are locked at 10pm, before she wakes up the next morning to host her show.

As Williams states,

"Either you're calling me crazy or the bravest woman you know. I don't care."

Many would side with the 'brave' option.





As Williams described living in a sober house, she brought up The Hunter Foundation she started with her husband, Kevin Hunter. The non-profit works to give grants to help people with drug rehabilitation and educational programs.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
