    Wendy Williams weeps about Whitney Houston

    Wendy Williams had another weepy moment on-air while talking about Whitney Houston. On Wednesday’s episode of "The Wendy Williams Show," the chat host got a little choked up while reporting about Whitney’s return to rehab.

    It’s been rumored that Whitney is using crack again, and that bit of informaiton started Wendy’s water works. “I remember that girl," Wendy said pointing at herself as tears welled up in her eyes, "sweaty, hair in the face, grown…I remember that girl very well, I wrote the book and everything. I can own up to my mistakes."

    After she got herself together, Wendy had a few words of advice (and encouragment) for the singer in the clip below.
