  1. Wow anything for some sympathy…. I wouldve respected it if she didnt bring cameras back to the sobar living.

  2. I'm so proud of her for opening up about this finally. It's been years in the making and so happy to see she's getting help.

  3. I think she´s hurt so many people with her gossip. She´s a sad person whom nobody seems to love. What a sad soul.

  4. I have no sympathy for Celebrity's it's always about drinking & drugs anyways… Repent!!!! Jesus Christ is Coming Get Saved Jesus 💖's You.

  5. If your Going through addiction, Please pray nd Believe in God TRUST in Him . nd Him Alone! JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY! JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY , TURN TO GOD! HE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH. CRY OUT TO JESUS, ND REMEMBER GOD LOVES YOU. ALL

  6. i aint even showing respect for her she doesn't even show respect for other celebs she always thinks shes right

  7. I feel confused how to feel it's not because I don't feel bad for her it's because she's made nasty and hurtful comments about others that have or had an addiction such as Demi Lovato

  8. He only addiction is to facial surgery, honestly she looks so unnatural. Don’t do this to yourself people.

  9. Bless you Wendy. Not a fan of your show, however I'm glad to see you taking the steps and admitting your truth. It can help others.

  10. She's done well keeping it quiet so long. The "smelly" guys she's talking about must be pretty decent BC I'm sure selling the story would have been quite lucrative for them!

  11. I am proud of her. It takes strength to do it and strength to admit it. I think she is brave and I think she will prevail!!

  12. People say it's ashame that they showed Wendy's sober house however if wendy knew this was going on with any other celebrity's not only would she show the location,she would pull out her pointer and go in for close ups while giving her two cent opinions about how stupid the celebrity look. What's good for the goose is good for the gander, it's called karma. Sorry not sorry!!😟😟🤷‍♀️

  13. Leave her alone damn give her some privacy!! Don’t take pictures of her when she’s recovering and reveal the exact location she’s staying at :((( her story is hers to tell. where’s the humanity

  14. I’m wondering why she’s placed in a house with “smelly boys”? The smelly part is not my concern. But why is Wendy not housed with women????

  15. I know next to nothing about her and I have only read that it was substance abuse. So my first thought was cocaine because of her nose… that’s very sad

  16. Okay she’s back using, but what was the reason she relapsed? We need the real tea on her marriage because too many people have seen Kevin being abusive to her, and let’s not forget his other wife Sharina, speculation is he is the catalyst for this.

  17. God bless you Wendy. Get a good divorce attorney and ur addictions will go away. Praying for healing for you.🙏
