While emphasizing that she and Houston had no personal history together, an extremely emotional Williams told viewers she’d always felt a special connection to the singer because they were “both plagued with the demon of substance abuse.”

“It’s been almost 15 years since I smoked last from a crack pipe,” said Williams, losing her composure as the studio crowd expressed support.

The host continued, talking about how she’d hoped one day to meet up with Houston when they were both “sober and older.”

Williams urged everyone to come to the aid of anyone struggling with addiction.

“I’m one of the lucky ones,” she admitted.
