Stacey Dash Reveals Secret Vicodin Addiction And States: ‘I’m Not Racist. I Was Just Angry and it Benefited me’

For several years, actress Stacey Dash seemed to be at odds with the very same Black community that supported her early in her career when she was acting in movies as she gained stardom in Hollywood. The former Fox News commentator, in a recent appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, admits that “I’m not racist. I was just angry and it benefited me.”

Dash took to her Facebook account to mention the upcoming interview that aired on Thursday.

“I will be sharing my deepest, darkest secret. I thank the Lord for being able to say that I have grown more over the last 5 years than I have in my entire life. I am so blessed to be surrounded by people who have loved and supported me through my most challenging time. Thank you all! I encourage anyone who has a story they are scared of telling to share it with the world. You never know who will be able to relate to you and who it can help. Share this with anyone you know who is needing love and light at this moment.”

According to E News, Dash said she initially took her first drug at the age of 8 as her parents were drug addicts. At the age of 16, she admitted that her mother gave her her first line of cocaine. The memories of her childhood revealed that she said she was molested when she was just 4 years old. She didn’t recall the incident until she was 17 when she attempted to kill herself. She alluded to being an angry teenager which took place around the time she was 10 or 11, which, at that time, was when her mother left her father who was a heroin addict who couldn’t overcome his own addiction.

Dash had been sober for 20 years and then relapsed after being prescribed Vicodin to help with her painful fibroid cysts and became addicted. She said she wasn’t blaming the doctors who prescribed them to her because it was her choice to take more, even though she was no longer in pain. The Vicodin filled a hole inside of her. It filled that anger. “It calmed that anger down. It slowed my brain down.” She blames herself for the addiction. It got to a point that she “was taking 18 to 20 pills a day” and no one knew about it. She estimated that she probably spent about $5,000 to $10,000 a month.

Now, according to Dash, she has been sober for five years now. “I just celebrated five years of sobriety. I’m clean, five years. And in these five years, my blessing—the greatest blessing is that not only have I been able to be honest with myself and become a better person, I’ve been able to understand my parents and that they did love me and that they were doing the best they could and they were just sick. They were addicted.”

She had also apologized for her previous conservative views claiming that she is “not racist.”

She had previously apologized earlier this year when according to The Daily Mail, Dash apologized for her past behavior when she ranted against then-president Barack Obama and sided with and supported former President Donald Trump. She also blamed her “arrogant pride and anger” and stated that she was typecast by Fox News.
