"My husband, who's been clean and sober for almost nine years, you know, I see him working a program and working on himself every single day. And I see how much work it takes to be clean and sober when you have, you know, addiction on your hands. So it gave me a real gratefulness for my husband, who got clean when he was 27."As for Russell's tribute to the Amy, Katy commented:
"It's a really poignant and interesting piece about how when you know somebody is dealing with addiction, you dread that phone call. Sometimes that phone call is that person calling up saying, 'I've had enough, I want recovery', sometimes it's that unfortunate phone call, but there will always be a phone call."Be sure to follow Celebuzz on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr to catch more celebrity news, pics and vids!
