ABC News anchor Elizabeth Vargas made news on Wednesday when she admitted that she’s in rehab, RumorFix has confirmed.
We’ve got to hand it to the newswoman for delivering the news in a straight-forward (no spin) fashion.
In a statement to RumorFix, Elizabeth says, “Like so many people, I am dealing with addiction. I realized I was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol. I am in treatment and am so thankful for the love and support of my family, friends and colleagues at ABC News. Like so many others, I will deal with this challenge a day at a time. If coming forward today gives one other person the courage to seek help, I’m grateful. “
ABC News is standing by Elizabeth.
Jeffrey Schneider, Sr. VP Communications, ABC News, tells us, “We are proud of the steps Elizabeth has taken and are pulling for her recovery. We look forward to having her back home at ABC News where she has done so much distinguished work over the years. Elizabeth is a member of our family and we will support her in every way we can.”
We wish her the best!
