We’re so glad she didn’t!
Wendy Williams has been very open about her past drug addiction, and she recently talked about how she could have ended up just like Whitney Houston.
The talk show host said:
"That could have been me if I hadn't sobered up. Whitney and I are [about] the same age, we both come from New Jersey and from parents who love us; we both struggled to have a child. We never met, but we have an incredible amount in common. I thought at some point we would meet in a room and just hug. But we lost her… I was a functioning addict. I'd work from 3 in the afternoon until 7 at night, get off and party until 7 in the morning — then sleep until 2, go to the radio station and do it all over again.”
Wendy went on to credit falling in love with her husband, Kevin Hunter, for how she weaned herself off the drug, saying that she never went to rehab.
She also said that the people around her knew, but, as she said, didn’t have “the guts” to say anything about it.
While we miss Whitney, it’s good that Wendy had someone come along to help get herself clean. Could you imagine this world without that HIGHlarious woman?! We sure can’t!
