Mindy McCready Opens Up About Past Mistakes, the Sex Tape, and Moving On
It was shocking video of troubled country star Mindy McCready in the throes of a seizure. She was shaking uncontrollably as she went through the physical agony of drug withdrawal while appearing on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.
"What went through your mind when you were having that seizure on the floor?" asks INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney.
"When I do finally remember being conscious again all I could feel was an extreme amount of pain in my shoulder, I dislocated my shoulder during the seizure, and I remember Dr. Drew standing over me," McCready says.
The disturbing video from Celebrity Rehab is just the latest in a troubled year for the country singer, whose powerful voice once shot her to the top of the charts.
Now McCready is facing yet another battle: she's trying to keep a sex tape she made with a former boyfriend from being released.
"Why did you make that sex tape?" asks McInerney.
"A lot of people do things in the privacy of their home that they never ever expect to have being splashed onto the fronts of papers," McCready explains.
McCready has recorded a new album, and she hopes the scandals in her life are behind her.
"People have written things like, 'Oh Mindy McCready is a trainwreck.' Are you a trainwreck?" asks McInerney.
"I've definitely made a lot of mistakes. I've made probably more mistakes than most people have made. You know, I thank God he doesn't look on mine any different than anybody else's," McCready admits.
Along with her new album, McCready also says she's planning to publish a book next fall.
