Ted Williams sat on Dr. Phil’s lap and admitted to be gurgling vodka and forgetting to spit. Williams claimed to have been clean and sober for two and a half years after he was plucked from an Ohio sidewalk and shoved into stardom. He was lie-telling and has been making it rain at liquor stores and dabbling in coke. An altercation with his daughter (click HERE for more details on that…) has led him to own up to his drinking.
“The cat is out of the bag. Yes. I’ve relapsed into a drink,” Ted admitted.
“Have you had even a stumble in two-and-a-half years?” McGraw asked.
“With alcohol, I did,” Williams responded. “And I can say honestly, Dr. Phil, it didn’t lead me to my drug of choice, which was crack.”
After speaking with Williams’ family and sitting one on one with Golden Voice, Dr. Phil has given Ted a push into rehab.
“That’s what I want to say, Doc. Anything you suggest or recommend, I’m ready to do,” Ted vows. “This is something I’m making a conscious choice to do. I think I need a rest. I need some rehabilitation. I need some detox, in terms of my own feelings. I just need to get away from it all.”
Ted is now headed to a facility to battle his demons.
