You have been very open about your battle with alcoholism, how has your road to sobriety been so far?
I was at a point in my life where I was trying to suppress some things but I’m at a good space in my life now. All I can say is, we all go through things. I just love the fact that when I look in the mirror now, I love who I see looking back at me.
What advice would you give to women out there trying to overcome that addiction?
I don’t mean to sound preachy, but the way that I was able to cope with it was maintaining my relationship with God. That’s really the best advice that I could give.
Besides R&B Divas and your upcoming book, what else can we be expecting from you in the near future?
[More] television and films. I’m working on a creole cook book with my mom. I’m also working on a infant line because when my baby was born she was tiny and I had such a hard time finding clothes for her. I’m definitely getting back into songwriting and production. Also promoting breast cancer awareness because my mother is actually a survivor of it.
