Wendy Williams has been candid about her drug use in the past and has never been shy about uncovering her demons considering what she does for a living. The television host and media maven once again shared her tale of being a functioning cocaine addict and defying the odds towards success.

ET exclusively reports:

“I was a functioning addict though,” she shared. “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.”

Williams also admitted during the interview that maintaining her wild lifestyle while also getting to work on time every day took work.

“[A] functioning addict has several alarm clocks, you’re organized,” she said. “It’s a miracle I was able to stop.”

The interview also revealed Williams’ involvement with The Hunter Foundation for the “Be Here” campaign that aims to tackle substance abuse and addiction concerns.
