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.
