“Our son was made exposed to synthetic marijuana. He was exposed by a loved one who he looked up to,” she shared. “It’s one of those pens where you don’t see the smoke and you don’t smell anything.” She says she finally found out about her son’s drug use by tearing apart his room. “I was duped. Our kid had been smoking this mess. He got turned out…to the point where he went off the rails for a moment.”

Wendy says that all this was going down while she was on her summer tour. “It was so hard for me to be on the road,” she says. “I’m trying to make funny on the tour, but in actuality my heart is breaking and my kid could have been dead.”

The talk show host encourages her fans to be aware and proactive when it comes to dealing with kids and drugs. “To the parents and guardians who are watching right now, just talk to your kids. Fortunately, Kevin has two parents who took harness of the thing. We took him out of the country for holistic treatment. We didn’t want to pump with psychiatric drugs.” She concludes, “I’m glad to say our boy is on the good side of good now.”

Do you think Wendy should’ve kept this information private or do you applaud her for trying to help other kids?
