"I see my brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction and looking for help," she said, according to Page Six. "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."

She said only her immediate family knew she was at a sober living facility.
“Only Kevin and Kevin (Jr.) know about this. Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here, she said. “After I finish my appointments, seeing my brothers and sisters, breaking bread, I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to the home that I live in here in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family. They hog the TV and watch soccer, we talk and read and talk and read. and then I get bored with them. Doors are locked by 10 p.m. Lights out by 10 p.m. So I go to my room, and I stare at the ceiling, and I fall asleep to wake up and come back here to see you. So that is my truth.”
Williams returned to her talk show March 4 after a two-month hiatus for health reasons, which included a fractured arm.
On her first show back from hiatus, Williams briefly addressed rumors about the reason for her absence, saying she visits the gym every day for two hours a day.
“I’m at home and I’m taking my thyroid meds and I’m meditating,” she said.
She also maintained that her marriage was fine.
“I’m still very much in love with my husband and anyone who’s been married, you know.”
“Marriages have ebbs and flows, marriage isn’t easy. And don’t ask me about mine until you see this gone,” she said, pointing to her wedding ring. “And it ain’t going anywhere, not in this lifetime.”
