Insiders say the prim and proper host confessed to a live audience that she helped her boyfriend "facilitate" selling cocaine when she was a teenager in college.

On Friday, Hall backtracked, saying her words were taken out of context.

Hall told DailyMail.com in a statement that she never "dealt drugs" in college. She said she was speaking about "part of an open and honest conversation about women" in prison.

Hall explained, "During an interview with prison rights advocate Topeka Sam, I shared a story about a bad situation I got myself into when I was 19. I never dealt drugs."

Even if she did deal drugs, it happened over 3 decades ago.

"I am now nearly 50 years old and was reflecting on a bad judgement call that could have turned worse. I say but for the grace of God, there go I. It was part of an open and honest conversation about women, incarceration and mistakes made."

Hall admitted producers edited the segment in which she reportedly confessed to dealing drugs.

"For legal reasons a portion of that segment was edited from the show. I hope my show can be a forum for sharing stories without shame or judgement - including a conversation we're having Friday on opioid addiction."

Judge Tammy Kemp was a guest on The Tamron Hall Show on Thursday, Oct. 10. The embattled judge came under fire for hugging former Dallas cop Amber Guyger after she was found guilty of killing 26-year-old accountant Botham Jean in his own apartment.

In previous interviews Kemp defended her behavior, saying Guyger asked her twice for a hug. Kemp also said she gave Guyger her personal Bible because the 31-year-old promised to return it after she completes her 10-year prison sentence.

Kemp's court bailiff was also criticized for appearing to comfort Guyger by primping her hair in the courtroom.

When Hall asked Kemp to explain the bailiff's actions, Kemp said "Guyger had been found guilty of murder... and we were on a lunch break. However, I couldn't send her to the jail to be frisked. So we asked a female bailiff to stay with her throughout the lunch break. And if you know anything about the jail, you gotta search every part of a person, including their hair."

But critics of the judge and the bailiff say officers never conduct searches for razor blades or other contraband with their bare hands.

On Monday Wendy Williams tearfully announced her popular daytime talk show was renewed through 2022. The TV personality, who has had her share of heartbreaks this year, was clearly relieved to finally get the news off her chest.

"I got through the whole show without shedding a tear," she said before making her big announcement.

"The Wendy Show has been renewed through 2022!"

But even though Wendy's show was renewed, Page Six reports the show will definitely be cancelled after the 2022 season.

Page Six claims The Wendy Show's producer Debmar-Mercury "likely" renewed the show because there was nothing else to air in its time slot.

"They don't have anyone strong enough to replace her. They were back into a corner," an inside source told Page Six. "She will surely not be coming back beyond the two-season renewal. This will be her swan song."

Wendy had her share of problems in 2019. She filed for divorce from her cheating husband, Kevin Hunter, after he fathered a baby girl with his longtime mistress, Sharina Hudson.
