Stacey Dash isn’t holding anything back.
Today, the 49-year-old is a proud mom to two kids — 25-year-old Austin and 12-year-old Lola. But her life almost looked very differently!
In a deeply personal new interview, the Clueless star reveals that she almost got an abortion while pregnant with her son.
“When I got pregnant, I was doing a lot of drugs and I didn’t want to live. I wanted to die. I was going to have an abortion. I was crying and I said to God, ‘Please tell me what to do,’” she tells People. “And God told me, ‘Keep your son.’ I ripped the IV out of my arm and I said, ‘I’m keeping my son.’”
The Fox News correspondent says she was first offered drugs at 16 — and it quickly escalated into a full-blown addiction.
And despite the challenges she’s faced, she plans on being open with her kids about her past.
“The best way to protect my children is to be honest with them,” Stacey says. “I let them know that I survived. I’m not a victim. And there is nothing they can’t overcome.”
