Wendy Williams Opens Up About Her Son’s Past Drug Habit
Our girl Wendy Williams opened up about not only her past drug addiction, but her son, little Kevin. She said when he was about 14 years old, he abused K2 a.k.a. synthetic marijuana.
“Our son, three years ago, he’s 17 now, he just graduated from high school, he’s leaving for college in September, but three years ago he smoked K2,” the TV host told Entertainment Tonight. “Now this is a drug, we see it on the news, people are walking around like zombies.”
She added, “I was horrified. My son became someone I didn’t even know,” she shared, adding that she noticed changes in him, “Immediately, immediately. It zaps your brain immediately… Drugs have no income; drugs have no race or religion. Drugs are drugs and that K2 was really something else and you know I’m glad to say we were able to bring him back all the way around.”
On her own addiction: “I was a functioning addict though. I report to work on time, and I’d walk in and all my co-workers, including my bosses, would know, but since I would have my headphones on and walk in the studio and [they] wouldn’t fire me because I was making ratings.”
