Things have gone from bad to worse for Wendy Williams.
And now the talk show host appears to be in legitimate trouble.
According to The Daily Mail, Williams was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday after she suffered a relapse just one day after numerous outlets reported that her husband's mistress had given birth to a baby.
That's a confusing sentence, we know.
But Kevin Hunter, who has been married to Williams since 1997 and who shares an 18-year old son with the television personality, has allegedly been having an affair with a woman named Sharina Hudson for years.
This has been an ongoing rumor for as long as we can remember -- and it's something Williams has even remarked upon to her viewers.
She's never really come out and denied the affair; she's simply said she remains committed to her marriage.
But then Hudson reportedly welcomed Hunter's child on Monday and this, understandably, was enough to send Williams into a tailspin.
The aforementioned publication writes that Williams was given an IV bag that contained vitamins and minerals at the hospital after members of her team found her highly intoxicated.
It's unclear exactly what state Williams was discovered in... but it was clearly a troubled one.
“She was in a bad way and disappeared from the studio after her show Monday,” a source told the Daily Mail website, adding:
“She went back to the sober house only to check herself out and decided to start drinking.”
Indeed, Williams admitted to her audience just last week that she was living in this sort of facility after a previous recent relapse.
You can watch her talk in emotional detail about the decision to check into a sober house in the footage below, which includes a reference to her husband:
Continues The Daily Mail insider:
“It’s not clear where she went [on Monday], 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 least she's now safe and hopefully receiving the help she desperately needs.
Williams was spotted on the street yesterday without her wedding ring on, perhaps as a sign that she's finally prepared to walk away from Hunter.
As mentioned above and depicted above, Williams opened the March 19 episode of her morning talk show by telling her fans she had been staying in a sober living facility while she battles her addiction.
"You know me for being a very open and truthful person and I’ve got more to the story for you," she said, prior to delving into the details as follows:
"You know [my husband] Kevin [Hunter] and I have The Hunter Foundation for the good of the people. We recently launched our 888-5 HUNTER number for those of you caught up in the struggle of addiction.
"Well, for some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house.
"When you see me come to work glammed up, right after the show I go across the street, I do my Pilates. I told you – two hours a day or [so], to take care of my body...
"You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past. 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."
Hunter has said very little about his alleged affair and also about Wendy in general, but he did speak out about her sober living facility move, referring to her addiction and hopeful recovery as a "family process."
Those close to Wendy are praying Kevin won't be a member of her family for much longer, however.
"Wendy is considering divorcing Kevin," says The Daily Mail, concluding:
"She's really distraught over the situation, 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."
We don't like what Williams sometimes says on her show, but we do wish her the best in this case.
Hang in there and get better, Wendy.
