Wendy Williams has left rehab after nearly two months of treatment.
The former talk show host’s rep tells Page Six that Williams is back at home and “healing.”
“We are happy to report that Wendy Williams is home and healing after being in a wellness facility since August,” Shawn Zanotti says in a statement.
“Wendy is excited about the road ahead and looking forward to releasing her many projects.”
Via Zanotti, Williams adds, “Thank you to my fans for your love, support and many prayers, I am back and better than ever.”
Page Six reported in September that the former shock jock checked back into a treatment facility after relapsing with alcohol.
“It’s gotten worse,” our source shared at the time. “She went from wine to straight up vodka.”
Gifford said she is “not gonna” read “Live Wire,” adding…
We were told that Williams’ health and addiction issues worsened after her former daytime talk show’s production company, Debmar-Mercury, allegedly “refused” to get her help.
“They turned their backs on her,” our source explained. “They had too much control over someone so vulnerable.”
It was unknown where Williams sought treatment, but she previously received help from centers in Florida and Long Island City, NY
Now that she’s back at home, Williams may focus on developing her previously announced podcast; however, Fresco by Scotto owner Rosanna Scotto told us that Williams wants to open a restaurant with her help.
“She loves the meatballs at Fresco,” the “Good Day New York” co-host told us, “and the last time I talked to her she’s like, ‘OK, Rosanna, I am coming to Fresco and I want the meatballs and then you’re going to help me open up my own restaurant.’ And I’m like, ‘What, sister, you wanna take my people away to your restaurant?’
“I don’t know if she wants me to waitress or what,” Scotto joked, “but she did tell me she wants to open her own restaurant and she wants me to help… If there is [a restaurant] from Wendy, it will be big competition but I love her.”
