Montel didn’t hold anything back when he was asked if he had advice for the now-sober TV star.
“Wendy’s show is so much different than mine, where she does a program that literally has for years now, honestly, belittled and put down people who are going through what she’s going through,” he revealed. “So it’s that crazy thought that needs to go through your head. Be careful who you point a finger at because you never know when one of them is pointing back.”
Wendy started to make headlines late last year when she began her shocking three-month hiatus from The Wendy Williams Show. Just a few weeks after her triumphant return in March, Wendy revealed she had been living in a sober house.
“For some time now and even today and beyond I have been living in a sober house,” Wendy confessed. “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 like to take care of my body. And 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.”
She continued, “After I finished 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 10:00 P.M. Lights out by 10:00 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.”
Wendy later admitted that: “Addressing my sobriety, my addiction, head-on, has helped me sort out every single compartment of my life.” She added, “I have a commitment to me and my son to come out of here better, stronger and faster than ever.”
In April, Wendy also revealed her shocking divorce from her husband of 20 years, Kevin Hunter, amid rumors he had a love child with his alleged mistress.
