Wendy Williams is making some major changes in her life ... she's searching for a new place to live after filing for divorce from her husband.
Sources close to the talk show host tell TMZ ... Wendy is scouring Manhattan looking for a new place to call home. We're told she wants to get a fresh start after calling it quits on her marriage, and her new digs will help her realize the divorce is real.
It's quite a change of tune for Wendy. Remember, it was just a few weeks ago when we got her out in NYC and she was flashing her ring and brushing off questions about Kevin's alleged affair.
Wendy's been going through a rough patch lately -- living in a sober house and getting round-the-clock help to deal with addiction issues.
Wendy and Kevin were still working together on set, and while it was super awkward for some people on the show, the couple were amicable with one another and showing no overt signs of hostility. But clearly, she reached a breaking point.
Wendy and Kevin first met at an ice skating rink in 1994, getting hitched 3 years later. They have one child together, son Kevin Hunter Jr.
For years, they shared a home in New Jersey ... but now, we're told she understands the best thing for her is starting over with some new surroundings ... in a new city.
Wendy's been staying in a sober house in the Tri-State Area -- of NY, NJ & CT -- where she's getting round-the-clock care for addiction issues ... and when she finishes with her stint there, we're told she plans to move into her new place.
