According to a recent report, Wendy Williams is currently facing two difficult life challenges: A fixation on prescription pills and her husband having a mistress.
Both of those things could easily be rumors, but Love B. Scott reports that Williams has been acting extremely bizarre, which has affected her staff at “The Wendy Williams Show” tremendously.
“She’s wobbly all the time and has been cussing out Whoopi Goldberg behind the scenes, without Whoopi being anywhere near,” a so-called insider told the YouTube “multimedia maven.”
“[People close to Wendy] suspect she might be self-medicating (either with opioids or prescription pills),” the source added. “[The staff] is routinely having to adjust to her health issues — i.e. not walking out for the beginning of the show, zoning out during segments, etc. They’re really embarrassed about the whole situation.”
And as far as the mistress, last year a Daily Mail report surfaced that said Wendy’s husband Kevin Hunter was seeing a woman named Sharina Hudson who happens to live a few miles from their New Jersey home.
Williams hasn’t commented on any of this yet, but she did post a message a few days ago about her health and why some of her recent shows weren’t up to snuff.
“I sincerely apologize if you feel that today’s show was less than stellar,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m on your TV screens every day wanting to spread laughter, entertainment and cheer … I have a hairline fracture in my upper arm, which hurts like hell … I’ve never taken a pain medication in my life until this week. I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgement of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being.”
