Wendy Williams Admits To “Smoking Crack” During Whitney Houston Segment

Posted on February 13th, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Wendy Williams had an emotional breakdown on her talk show Monday while discussing the passing of Whitney Houston. A teary-eyed Williams said that she felt a special bond with Houston despite only being in the same room with her once.

Williams also admitted that she, much like Whitney, has battled substance abuse in the past. "It's been almost 15 years since I smoked last from a crack pipe. It's been almost 15 years since I waited on Jermone Avenue in the Bronx for my drugs," Williams testified.

"I'm not proud of the girl that I was, but without being that girl I wouldn't be the woman that I am today," she continued.

While Ms. Houston never admitted to smoking crack, she did reveal to Oprah that she at one time use cocaine.

Watch all of Williams' emotional segment below.

      Blessings to you for admitting you had a demon and maybe you expressing your experience will help some one else.  Love you and praying for you.

      Your truth will help set other free!  Thank you for being open and honest Wendy. To the posters; I know the topic alone seems like an invitation to further bash Wendy and her antic. In honor of Whitney and awareness about drug abuse; lets keep things upbeat and positive by, instead, praying for those who are trapped within this snare.

      Wendy please, drama drama drama…….so you have a drug addiction, this is America, we have the freedom to get high…..black people in particular loves drugs, so not a surprise when it did Whitney Houston in at the age of 48.  At least we dont have to continue to watch the train wreck any more.  Who says drug additicts goes to heaven, more like the firery pits of hell, the same one they lived in when they were alive and kicking and on drugs……

        wow, your hate is striking. you can hide on the internet. I feel sorry for you that you would say such hateful things. Be careful what you put out into the universe. it has a strange way of coming back to you someday. I pray that you one day come to regret such ignorance and bigotry. I could fire back with hate, but instead I will just pray for you – who ever you are.

      I am glad you have been set free. I hope you got the chance to apologize to Whitney when you spoke bad about her so often when she was in her valley. She is the one that needed to hear your testimony, you must have felt your own hypocrisy. I hope she did hear it, for not one of us can escape God’s wrath. Whitney’s light will always shine, I am so glad that we got the chance to see her glow again, I thank God for the gift He gave us, Whitney Houston. We have to learn that not one of us is perfect, we can only strive to do our best…and Whitney your best was good enough for a lifetime.
