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.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
