Alcoholism is a disease and no one should ever be ashamed to seek or accept help.
Now that she’s 100% sober to prove that she is not an alcoholic, Tommie Lee is finally ready to have this overdue sit down with her sister Versace. Tommie says, “Being suspended from filming was a wake up call that I do need to change some things,” and the beef with Versace was one of them. With the ginger ale flowing, Tommie kicks off the conversation reminding Versace that the two “never not had a sister relationship,” but she is dealing with a lot of pressure. After hearing big sis out, Versace genuinely apologizes for her role in the feud after all, Tommie raised her. Following Tommie’s explanation on why she was barred from drinking, her mother Samantha shares a tearful revelation. When asked, “Would you ever let somebody tell you that you’re an alcoholic?” Samantha candidly responds:
Yea. I would. Sometimes I feel like an alcoholic like if I can’t get out of bed without a drink, if I can’t go to sleep without a drink. Alcohol done took a lot of lives in our family. We gotta break the cycle.
At the risk of worrying her kids, Samantha has been keeping this news to herself but prays that her full disclosure would serve as a wake up call for Tommie to stop drinking as well. Hearing this, Tommie regrets the times spent arguing with her mother but now knows she just has to make things right, starting with saying sober.
Samantha, you’re in our prayers. Don’t miss an all new Love & Hip Hop Atlanta next Monday at 8/7c!
