“My sort of addictions jump. They jump around,” she said. “When I was younger, I definitely think I had a sex addiction of some kind, yes, that everything could be fixed by sex. You know what I’m saying?”

Jada also claimed she had gone through a periods where she was addicted to going to the gym and drinking alcohol.

“I remember reaching a rock bottom that time I was in the house by myself and I had those two bottles of wine and was going for the third bottle,” Jada said.

“And I was like, ‘Now hold up. You’re in the this house by yourself going on to your third bottle of wine? You might have a problem.’”

The mother-of-three has been able to pull herself out of addictive patterns by acknowledging she had a problem and then stopping her damaging behaviour.

“That’s the thing about me: I can go cold turkey. I am a binger, and I always have to watch myself and I can just get obsessed with things,” Jada said.

“It’s not what you’re doing but how you’re with it. Why you’re doing it. It’s the behaviour that’s attached to it because if you want to have a lot of sex, that’s great, but why are you having all that sex? That’s what you’ve got to look at.”

Also during the episode Jada and her mother shared an emotional moment as they recalled Adrienne’s two decade addiction to heroin.

“I couldn’t hide the unmanageability of my life, and the emotional damage and the spiritual damage I did to myself and to her. That was devastating,” Adrienne admitted.
