On Tuesday, March 26, beloved daytime TV talk show host Wendy Williams was reportedly rushed to the hospital after she was found drunk amid the news that her husband, Kevin Hunter, allegedly welcomed a baby with his mistress of 10 years, Sharina Hudson. Williams is reportedly being hospitalized after her alcohol relapse.
Insiders revealed to the Daily Mail that Williams, 54, had checked herself out of her sober living home in Long Island City, Queens on March 25, and started drinking — just one day after the news Hudson, 33, had given birth to a baby girl and Hunter, 46, is allegedly the father. The sober coach that Williams had been working with for 24 hours over the past few weeks was reportedly the one who alerted authorities about Williams’ relapse.
“She was in a bad way and disappeared from the studio after her show Monday. She went back to the sober house only to check herself out and decided to start drinking,” an insider told the Daily Mail. “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. 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. She was eventually found and was drunk, she was immediately taken to the hospital.”
At the hospital, Williams was reportedly given an IV banana bag, which is full of yellow-tinted fluids containing vitamins and minerals to help clear a person’s system and sober them up.
Earlier on Monday, Williams was spotted leaving her sober living home without her wedding ring, even though she wore it during the Monday and Tuesday filming of her talk show, The Wendy Williams Show.
“She’s really distraught over the situation,” the insider added. “She knew about Sharina but didn’t think a baby would arrive, she didn’t think Kevin would go this far, she’s lost and everyone is worried for her.”
