Kristen Johnston Reveals Debilitating Addictions To Alcohol & Pain Meds In Her New Memoir!

| Filed under: TV NewsDrugsSad Sad


This is just unbelievable. We would have never guessed; she hid it well.

Kristen Johnston, best know for her work on 3rd Rock From The Sun, has a new memoir coming out next week that is sure to shock anyone who ever thought they knew her. In the pages of her book, Guts: The Endless Follies and Tiny Triumphs of a Giant Disaster, she reveals her secret addiction to not only alcohol, but also pain medication.

And her cocktails of choice almost killed her!

According to Kristen, she never had an issue deciding between a bottle red or a bottle of white; she used to just drink them both, usually in one day, to wash down the slew of Vicodin she'd be taking. But her addictions never actually killed any of her pain, as she explains in a new interview with People Magazine:

"I hated myself, but I didnt think I could change. I'm appreciateive that I'm still alive."

As are we! We're glad you figured out how badly you were hurting yourself before it was too late!

Life is such a precious thing and it's so not worth wasting it this way. Glad to have you back in fighting form, Kristen!

    If I hear one more celebrity bitch about his/her loss of privacy, I'll scream. Is nothing private or sacred any longer? Does everyone have to reveal everything? Not every story needs to be told, and precious few need to be published.

    She should send a copy to Lindsay.

    Another celebrity sob story!

    i dont' see why this would be a surprise to anyone. it was clear from her physical appearance for several years that she was into some serious stuff.

    Wow, this must be an all new Perez because I remember you being mean as hell to her when she was ill and thin. I bet she loved reading that from her hospital bed. I've always adored her and always will. Already ordered GUTS.

    Hid it well? She looked horrible, her weight got down to about 95 lbs (on a tall lady) and could hardly move/walk…I don't think she fooled many people.
    Best Luck with her Rehab/comeback…

    I ran into her at la bonne market and she looked questionable, but then again so did I. lol

    For someone in "RECOVER" she sure does booze it up in her TV Show; how pathetic is that?

    What do you all not get that her stomach literally ripped open and that is why she lost all the weight? I think it is funny that Perez is talking about her book as he was such an ass to her after she went through that ordeal w/ her stomach rupturing. I remember he called her scary skinny and to eat a sandwich…I have little respect for a two face like that. Cut the lady a break, she's turned her life around and is trying to help others. Perez, stop being such a hypocrite and causing pain on people's lives
