The Vanderpump Rules star confessed, "Five months ago, I came to the realization that I am an alcoholic. I am now a friend of Bill Wilson, which you will never know how much this program means to me, has given me new life.” Bill is the late Alcoholics Anonymous cofounder who created his famous 12 Step Program.

The Utah native continued, "I will never ever preach to anybody, I’ll only speak from my own experiences. I always say if you don’t have to be sober, I wouldn’t recommend it, but me, as someone who does need to be sober, being in my right frame of mind, every single day is truly incredible.

"When I’m having the roughest day that I could possibly have, I, for once in a very, very long time, see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know that tomorrow, I’m gonna be OK. If I have a bad hour, a bad day, I know, I can see that light, and I’m gonna find it, I’m gonna get to it," she said.
