“I have been living in a sober house,” she said through tears. “When you see me come to work glammed up, right after the show, I go across the street and do my Pilates … you know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in the past. I never went to a place to get treatment; I don’t know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped. There are people in your family, it might be you … I want you to know more of the story, so this my autobiographical story, and I am living it.”
“So, this is my autobiographical story, and I’m living it. I’m telling you this,” she said through tears. “After I go to the pilates, I go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area. And I see my brothers and sisters, caught up in their addiction and looking for help. They don’t know I’m Wendy. They don’t care I’m Wendy. There’s no autographs. There is no nothing. It’s the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle.”
“… After I finished my appointments, seeing my brothers and sisters, breaking bread, I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to the home that I live in, here in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family,” she continued. “They hog the TV and watch soccer. We talk and read and talk and read and then I get bored with them.”
“So I go to my room, and I stare at the ceiling and I fall asleep to wake up and come back here to see you. So that is my truth,” she said, with applause from the audience. “… I know, either you are calling me crazy or the bravest woman you know. I don’t care.”0
