D’Andra revealed she once checked into rehab for her addiction. “I’m very upfront with the fact that I had a drug problem in my 20s,” D’Andra explained. “Luckily, at 29, I went to rehab and I never did it again.”

The 49-year-old then took the opportunity to discuss her rehab experience a bit more. She explained she went out of the country for treatment. “The center was in Tijuana,” she said. “Back then when it was safe. There was a detox clinic I went to back then, I would say for three months. Because I was living in L.A. back then, there were a lot of parties and a lot of things. And I got caught up in the wrong crowd.”

“My father committed suicide when he was in a drunken rage, so it’s really upsetting for me to have that conversation,” D’Andra revealed on the show. “He was always an alcoholic. I grew up with an alcoholic father. That for me is a sensitive topic. … I know a lot about alcohol issues. … I don’t even know what to say. … I’m mad and I’m hurt.”

During the reunion, D’Andra slammed LeeAnne’s claims once again. “I’ve had my own issues in the past, but alcohol was not one of them,” she insisted.
