Good Monday Morning! Hope you all had a good weekend, I was up the Emirates Stadium yesterday catching the Arsenal game, so I start today with Vanessa’s chat with The Sun’s fabulous magazine:
Vanessa White has revealed that she battled with a drinking problem that threatened to destroy her and her band The Saturdays.
Speaking to Sunday’s Fabulous magazine, the 24-year-old confessed that her dependence on alcohol left her depressed.
She revealed: “My life started to spin out of control in 2010 and it was a dreadful year.
“I’d be out every night. I went to G.A.Y., mainly because I didn’t want to be hassled by men and just wanted to drink.
“I drank vodka mainly but, to be honest, I drank anything. It massively affected the band and I felt lonely and depressed.”
Her drinking got so bad that it also threatened to ruin her career due to the effect it was having on her vocals.
She continued: “I didn’t know who I was underneath everything I was supposed to be. I’d arrive for work every morning hungover, then my voice started to go.
“I’d have to ask Una to cover my solos.”
In 2011 her problem reached crisis point and it was band mate Rochelle Humes who finally came to her rescue.
She said: “One night, I called Rochelle in a state.
“She told me to come to hers and I stayed with her for two weeks, not drinking, and eating properly. It made me realise I had to stop.”
I admit I didn’t grab the paper yesterday and The Sun is sadly a website that sits behind a paywall, so if you bought it and are willing to scan it for us to share with everyone then please e-mail them over to us 🙂
