Wendy Williams’ husband is speaking out for the first time since her addiction and sober house reveal.

Days after Williams, 54, came clean about her ongoing addiction struggles during the March 19 show, Kevin Hunter told Entertainment Tonight the star is “doing well.”

“We’re doing well as a family,” he said. “We are moving forward with working on her sobriety and doing the work to help others, not just ourselves.”

Hunter, 46, explained that his wife is receiving treatment for her addiction and working with her sober coach to continue to heal, but there’s still a long journey ahead.

“It is a family process,” Hunter said. “Anybody that has to deal with this knows this is a family process… and we are dealing with it and moving forward.”

RadarOnline.com readers recall Williams spoke out about her past cocaine addiction on her show as soon as she returned from her nearly three-month hiatus.

“Crack is wack,” she said on the March 5 segment. “I was a mess… killing myself. I realized I am a walking addict. You can’t just clean it up and stop it. I wasted a lot of my life burning my insides. You never know when it can pop up. I constantly have to watch the inside of my body because of hard partying, just a mess.”

A few days later, she announced she and Hunter launched a substance abuse hotline to help struggling addicts, and a few days after that, she revealed her big secret.

“Well, for some time now and even today and beyond I have been living in a sober house,” she said on the March 19 episode. “After I go to the pilates, I go to several meetings all around town in the Tri-state area. And I see my brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction and looking for help.”

Following her confession, Radar revealed exclusive photos of the grimy sober house the TV star has been staying in.

Williams and Hunter have been married since 1997 and have one child together, son Kevin Hunter Jr.
