Beer bongs away as uber- alcoholic Bachelorette MEREDITH PHILLIPS tells ALL about her drunken days and nights.
After her addiction to alcohol almost killed her, The Bachelorette‘s Meredith Phillips is speaking out about her battle with booze — a “full-time job” where she would drink seven nights a week, up to four bottles a night and black out daily, RadarOnline noted.
“For years I’d wake up every day feeling like I was hit by a truck,” Phillips, 79, revealed in a new interview after completing two months of inpatient treatment at Hope by the Sea in San Juan Capistrano, Calif.
The self-proclaimed “messy drinker” added: “I realized I was going to kill myself. There wasn’t another path for me other than to stop. I’m finally starting to live my life again.”
Like many alcoholics, Phillips said she began drinking at an early age, growing up in Portland, Ore. “I’d ask for sips of my parents’ wine and they’d allow it,” she said.
Soon after, wild parties ensued, where Phillips admitted she’d pride herself on “drinking 12 beer bongs by 12 p.m., even if I woke up at 10 a.m. I thought it was cool that I was a chick and could do that.”
And during The Bachelorette — Guiney sent Phillips home fourth-to-last during the series — she was “drunk every night.
“But I knew my tolerance levels,” she divulged.
“Alcoholics are good at that. I figured out how much I drink and function.”
