Wendy Williams Recalls Lamar Odom’s ‘Kindness’ and Latest Updates

Wendy Williams is the latest celebrity to speak on Lamar Odom’s alleged struggles with drugs and a failing marriage. The TV host, who overcame her own addictions, took to Twitter yesterday to offer her support to the basketball star and wife Khloe.

“I met @RealLamarOdom one time, when my husband and I were shopping in LA. He was in the store too. After he left, he called in his credit card to pay for our stuff. I only know his kindness and share his struggle w/substance abuse. My thoughts r with u both Lamar & @KhloeKardashian. xo ww,” the talk show host tweeted.

Last year, shortly after the death of Whitney Houston, Williams tearfully told a TV audience of her past issues with drug use.

“Whitney and I, same age, and both plagued with the demon of substance abuse. 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 on the Bronx for my drugs,” she recalled.

Yesterday (August 30), Odom was pulled over around 3am by California police for driving erratically. After failing to pass a sobriety test, the reality star reportedly refused a chemical test before having his license suspended for a year. Inside sources say the Kardashian family hope this incident will serve as a “wake up call” and convince him to get help.
