The Fix Gets Some Love on Fox
Kristen Johnston discusses The Fix while talking addiction and recovery on Fox 11.
In a recent interview with Fox 11 entertainment reporter Courtney Friel, Emmy-award winning actress Kristen Johnston talked about her passion for recovery, her hilarious and disturbing memoir Guts, her mission to create New York City's first sober high school and her love for The Fix. "[The Fix is] young, it's interesting, it doesn't have one theory," Johnston told Friel—who described us as "a hip new sobriety website." Johnston said of her addiction, "I was the red wine mustache lady with the purple teeth. Everyone else would have their two or three glasses of wine and I would have my ten. I was jobless and fired by my agency and so broke I was selling shoes." The Third Rock star, who's been in recovery for almost six years, added that now that she's cleaned up, "My life is better in every single way I can imagine. I'm grateful, I'm happy. I don't need to escape all the time." When Friel asked Johnston why she came clean about her addiction after first managing to keep it a secret, she replied that she's not publicizing her book because she wants more money. "I'm publicizing it because I really want the people who need to read it to read it."
