Wendy Williams returned to the hot seat on Monday, March 4 following a three-month hiatus. After the troubled talk show host blamed her absence on her health and marital issues, she’s now opening up about her past drug use.
“You know this about me,” Williams, 54, began on Tuesday, March 5th's episode. “I told you I’ve had my bout with substance abuse. Once you’re a substance abuse user, you have to battle that for the rest of your life.”
She then told all on her 10-year “ride” with cocaine and crack.
“Crack is wack,” she said. “I was a mess… killing myself. I realized I am a walking addict. You can’t just clean it up and stop it. I wasted a lot of my life burning my insides. You never know when it can pop up. I constantly have to watch the inside of my body because of hard partying, just a mess.”
Williams has been open about her struggle with drug use in the past.
As Radar readers know, Williams took a three-month absence from the show.
She explained when she returned, “So what had happened was we were only supposed to be off two weeks for Christmas vacation. And towards the end of the two weeks, I started to feel thyroid issues. Well, they’re still adjusting my meds. If you don’t know about thyroid disease, it’s a lifetime thing. It can really screw you over.”
“He is my best friend, my lover, he’s all this and he’s all that,” she said of her husband. “I know what you’ve been saying and I know what the streets have been talking about.”
