*Daytime diva Wendy Williams got a little personal and quite emotional on her show the other day when she spoke of Whitney Houston’s recent rehab check-in. She mentioned that the rehab could be a way of clearance to participate in the “Waiting to Exhale” sequel.
While speaking, Wendy reminisced about her drug past, which brought up some tears.
“Have you ever tried drugs?,” she asked her viewer-co-host. “Well I have. It’s been many years, I can laugh about it now, too. It’s the stupidest thing I ever did in my life, you know, but I am familiar with every form of cocaine including crack and that whole bit. And I have to tell you, when I saw this picture right here, show that other picture of Whitney.
“[Begins crying] I remember that girl, sweaty, hair in the face, grown…I remember that girl very well, [points to herself] I wrote the book and everything. I can own up to my mistakes. Whitney, you need more than outpatient, and furthermore, I’m going to tell you right now because I’ve said it before: I don’t believe that you were sober on ‘Oprah,’ I don’t believe that you went into rehab voluntarily this time[...]On ‘Inside Edition’ they said that Whitney just signed on for ‘Waiting to Exhale 2.’ Well you know what happens with these Hollywood people, you have to be insurable and bankable. Nobody’s insuring [points to photo] this. So clean it up!”
