Wendy Williams flaunts cleavage at 54th birthday charity gala... and talks ...

Despite a trying year Wendy Williams still has plenty to be grateful for.

And the television personality was the guest of honor at her The Wendy Williams Hunter Birthday Give Back Gala in New York City on Wednesday.

Though it was her special day, the newly-turned 54-year-old wanted to help the less fortunate with the charity gala at the iconic Hammerstin Ballroom.

As it was to benefit families suffering from addiction and substance abuse, Williams opened up about her struggle with cocaine addiction. 

Her battle began when she still worked in radio as she explained to Entertainment Tonight: 'I was a functioning addict though.

 'I report to work on time, and I’d walk in and all my co-workers, including my bosses, would know but since I would have my headphones on and walk in the studio and [they] wouldn’t fire me because I was making ratings.'

Williams also said that it was  still able to make it to work despite her partying ways.

'[A] functioning addict has several alarm clocks, you’re organized,' she explained. 'It’s a miracle I was able to stop.'
