Tamron Hall Denies Dealing Cocaine after Reportedly Admitting to 'Facilitating' Drug Sales as Teen on Her Talk Show
Tamron Hall defended her alleged confession about selling cocaine in a statement. According to the talk show who denied she dealt drugs, it was "a bad judgment call that could have gone worse."
Tamron Hall is feeling the brunt of her shocking confession pertaining to her past experience with cocaine.
"I never dealt drugs..."
In a recent, taped episode of her talk show, “Tamron Hall,” the 50-year-old admitted that at 19, she helped her college boyfriend facilitate the sale of the drug.
The admission reportedly caused a stir among her network officials who scrambled to edit it out from the taped show.
After news of her revelation spread, Hall released a statement to People to explain her story and deny that she ever dealt cocaine.
"A BAD JUDGMENT CALL"
“I never dealt drugs,” Hall flatly stated and explained that she was merely “reflecting on a bad judgment call that could have turned worse.” The mother-of-one added,
“It was part of an open and honest conversation about women, incarceration and mistakes made. 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.”
"...it was like a relationship where you're putting in 100% and the person who's putting in less has the nerve to break up with you."
HER "HEARTBREAKING" EXIT FROM HER FORMER SHOW
Hall returned to the talk show fold in September after leaving “Today” in 2017. She opted not to renew her contract with the NBC program after it was announced that her third-hour timeslot was going to be given to Megyn Kelly.
It was a low point for the newly-married mom.
"I was heartbroken," she said last month. “(Imagine) you've been putting in the work, and suddenly your employer says they're phasing you out. I had some suspicions because I'm a reporter and I'm pretty intuitive, but no one wants to lose their job. It wasn't about who I was losing it to – it was like a relationship where you're putting in 100% and the person who's putting in less has the nerve to break up with you."
Hall gratefully revealed that she’s in a happier place now. She landed her own talk show on ABC and it has given her a sense of “peace,” she told People.
During her hiatus from television, Hall started a family with her music executive husband, Steve Greener. It’s unclear when they tied the knot but she made the announcement that they were married when she revealed her pregnancy in March. Their son Moses was born the following month.
