The 54-year-old's husband, Kevin Hunter, in an interview with Kevin Frazier of Entertainment Tonight revealed his position as regards the recently disclosed battle with addiction by Wendy.  He started by calming the fear of fans about Wendy's well-being as he says,

“Wendy is doing well. We’re doing well as a family."

He went further to mention the family's effort to help Wendy and others during these "sobriety" moments.

"We are moving forward with working on her sobriety and doing the work to help others, not just ourselves," Hunter said.

One of the most impressive statements by Hunter in the interview was his disclosure of the family's joint effort in making sure the actress keeps "moving forward."

During the Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday, the entertainer made it known to her fans and the whole world that she now lives in a sober home as she undergoes treatment for addiction.

"So, this is my autobiographical story, and I'm living it. I'm telling you this," Williams said with tears.

She went further to say:

"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."

The home's lights are turned off, and it is locked by 10 p.m. daily. Williams further talked about what she does after going in.

"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 said. "I know, either you are calling me crazy or the bravest woman you know. I don't care."

Williams and her husband started the "888-5HUNTER" hotline, aimed at aiding those affected by drug addiction and substance abuse.
