Wendy Williams has opened up about being addicted to cocaine back when she worked in radio. “I was a functioning addict though,” she tells Entertainment Tonight. “I would report to work on time and I walked in and all of my coworkers, and including my bosses, would know but instead of firing me, you see, I would grab my headphones and arrogantly walk into the studio and dare them fire me because I was making ratings.” She continues “[A] functioning addict has several alarm clocks, you’re organized. It’s a miracle I was able to stop.” Williams recently partnered with The Hunter Foundation to launch the “Be Here” National Campaign, which works to combat substance abuse and addiction in communities.
