Tamron Hall Denies Dealing Cocaine After She Allegedly Confessed to ‘Facilitating’ Sale of Drug
Welp, Tamron Hall is denying that she sold cocaine as a teenager after she allegedly admitted to “facilitating” the sale of the drug with her college boyfriend on the latest episode of her talk show.
The Daily Mail reports that Hall confessed to her audience on Tuesday’s episode that she used to “facilitate” selling cocaine when she was a teenager with her college boyfriend. It is unclear in which context she made the revelation, but Tuesday’s episode included a segment with former ‘Dirty Jobs’ host Mike Rowe. Production insiders told the news site that Hall’s admission forced frantic producers to cut it from the pre-recorded program. Howver, the host did released a statement saying that she had never ‘dealt drugs’ and was speaking about ‘part of an ‘open and honest conversation.
“During an interview with Prison Rights Advocate Topeka Sam, I shared a story about a bad situation I got myself into when I was 19. I never dealt drugs,” said Hall. “I am now nearly 50 years old and was reflecting on a bad judgement call that could have turned worse,” the talk show host explained. “I say but for the grace of God, there go I.”
“It was part of an open and honest conversation about women, incarceration and mistakes made,” she continued. “For legal reasons a portion of that segment was edited from the show. I hope my show can be a forum for sharing stories without shame or judgement — including a conversation we’re having Friday on opioid addiction.”
Hall’s new ABC talk show, Tamron Hall, premiered last month. The show’s debut marked the first time that the veteran journalist returned to daytime television after leaving Today two years ago, PEOPLE reported.
