Talk show host Wendy Williams made an explosive admission on her show Tuesday that she has been living in a sober house every night, a secret she kept from her closest family and friends, until now.

The 54-year-old broke down during the taping, admitting to cameras and her audience that she has a sober coach.

On March 4, Williams returned from what she told her audience was a two-month break to deal with health problems, which started with a shoulder injury and continued with complications of Graves' disease, an autoimmune condition characterized by hypothyroidism.

"They don't know I'm Wendy, they don't care I'm Wendy, there's no autographs, there's no nothing", she continued.

During the emotional reveal, she said that she's living somewhere in the tri-state area, travelling back and forth between work and the sober house. "So I go to my room and I state at the ceiling and I fall asleep, to wake up to come back here to see you". As expected, she then received an applause from the studio audience for finally telling her truth, while pointing out that she doesn't care whether "you call her insane or the bravest woman in the world". "And you know I've had a struggle with cocaine in my past".

From there, she spoke about her use of cocaine in her past, while emphasizing that she never went to place to get the treatment that she desperately needed. God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped...
