After performing on Dancing With the Stars on Monday night, Brandy opened up about the fatal car accident that she was in as part of a video presentation sharing the contestants' most difficult times.
"I was trying to hold back tears, of course, because I was onstage while they were playing [the footage]. But I thought that it was put together well, and I got my story across.
Just to see my family and be supportive of me and Whitney Houston and all that felt really good. There's a lot of people out there who go through hard times, and they feel alone. They feel like nobody is there. But I'm in the same boat.
I feel great about [opening up]. It's still an unfortunate situation, and that's a regret to go through something like that for everyone that was involved. So it's just so sad every time I think about it."
"Dancing has taken her out of the element of sadness," Monica said. "It was time to leave those things behind."
