Earlier this week, there were rumors that talk show host Wendy Williams’ husband, Kevin Hunter’s longtime mistress had given birth to his child.
Insiders claim the news caused Williams to be hospitalized.
The Daily Mail reported that the 54-year-old checked herself out of her sober living home in Long Island City, Queens on Monday afternoon and started drinking, eventually being found by her team who took her to the hospital to sober up.
“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,” a source told the tabloid. “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. She was eventually found and taken to the hospital.”
On Wednesday, Williams announced that she would be taken a previously planned weeklong break from her daytime show.
