And the support for Whitney Houston continues to pour. During The Wendy Williams Show today the usually upbeat daytime diva delivered a chilling tribute to the fallen singer. “After I say what I say I’m not talking about it anymore … I’m out,” Wendy said in her disclaimer.
Afterwards Wendy reflected on meeting Whitney back in ’85 when she first came to Wendy’s station and talked about how they had so much in common – family, fame, and drug addictions:
It’s been almost 15 years since I smoked last from a crack pipe. It’s been almost 15 years since I waited on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx for my drugs. I’m not proud of the girl that I was but without being that girl, I wouldn’t be the woman that I am today. So if it makes any sense to you, I have no regrets. There’s one thing throughout it all…my connection with Whitney…is that I wished for us both to be really sober and really aware. And I knew I’d meet her one day but I always pictured that time to be in our late 50s, 60s with her being the number one spokesperson for say no. I just for some reason thought that that’s what she would do.
