On Tuesday, the daytime talk show host was spotted returning to a sober living house in New York where she's been staying prior and since her filing last week, ending her almost 22-year marriage.
Wearing a puffy leopard-print coat and stretchy black pants, the 54-year-old TV personality climbed out of a sports car after looking at apartments. In her arms is the novel Every Thug Needs A Lady by Wahida Clark.
This sighting comes less than a week after ET confirmed that Williams and Hunter's marriage is coming to an end. Court documents cite "irreconcilable differences between parties which have caused the breakdown of the marriage for a period of six months."
On Monday on her show, she faced all the drama head on. During her "Hot Topics" segment, she discussed her divorce as well as her battle with addiction.
"It's so crazy because now my business is your business," said Williams, who shares a son, 19-year-old Kevin Hunter Jr., with her estranged husband. "I'm moving out of sober house in just a few days, you know. It'll be Wendy on her own. I have to tell you, you know I've been dealing with issues with addiction, alcoholism, and I have a whole new life that I planned for myself and my son."
"Believe me, when you lay in a room with no TV and four gray walls all day and no telephone ... and you lay there and think about your life, it's one of the best things, honestly, that could have happened to me," she added. "Everybody has things in their life that they're embarrassed to share with the world, or they're frightened to share with the world, or they're not ready to share with the world. And addressing my sobriety, my addiction, head on has really helped me sort out every single compartment of my life."

Wendy Williams Opens Up About Starting a 'Whole New Life'
Soon after, Hunter released a statement to ET regarding their marriage's dissolution, writing, "Twenty-eight years ago I met an amazing woman: Wendy Williams. At the time, I didn't realize that she would not only become my wife, but would also change the face of entertainment and the world. I have dedicated most of our lives to the business empire that is Wendy Williams Hunter, a person that I truly love and respect unconditionally."
"I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans," he continued. "I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs. No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine."
