'Golden Voice' Ted Williams Makes Amends With Dr. Phil (VIDEO)

Ted Williams on 'Dr. Phil' Earlier this year, things seemed to be looking up for Ted Williams, the homeless man with the "golden voice" who became an Internet sensation. But Williams still had to wrestle with alcohol and crack addictions, and got some help when Dr. Phil McGraw helped him check into rehab. Williams had an almost immediate relapse, but he returned to 'Dr. Phil' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) Thursday to say he was doing better and offer an apology to Dr. Phil.

Dr. Phil said Williams looked pretty healthy, and Williams agreed that he was. "There were a lot of things I lied about," said Williams. "I owe you some amends, first of all. I lied about my sobriety, and I told people that you had exploited me." Williams explained he had acted to increase his fame and attract more lucrative deals.

"You know amends is not about saying you're sorry," said Dr. Phil, "it's about changing your life. And it's about cleaning up the wreckage in the past." According to Dr. Phil, Williams is on his way to doing just that, having been in treatment for 90 days with more treatment and help in store. Dr. Phil is hoping the public will see the version of Williams he saw months ago when he originally tried to help him.

That was a waste of money. Should have let that dead beat drunken drugie OD along with his girlfriend. Humans are the only species that saves its waste.

The FACT that Mr Williams CHOOSE to write to Dr Phil asking if he and his girlfriend could to go back to Rehab for treatment then stay the FULL 90 days and commit to an out patiant program, then dicide to leave his Managment team more professional experieced managment team then to HUMBLE himself and aplolgze for lying about his sobrity and what I really thought was humbling was he told Dr Phil on National TV that he told people and the Media that Dr Phil exploited him just to get more notarity and to get more lucritive deals. To say ALL that must have been very diffcult and embarresing. It would have been a WASTE of money if Mr Williams had NOT gone willingly NOT left his old Managment team or the people,places and things that could ruin his careeer again. He is now admitting and taking responsiblty for his actions. To wish Ted ill-will is very small of you. It seems that you or someone in your life that didn't get a second chance like Mr Williams. I just think you are HATIN' Mr Williams cause he got a second chance and you believe he is not deserving.

I support Ted Williams career and his recovery As for Mr Williams family it is up to them help him along with the healing process. It is no ones business what he says or doesn't say to his family! I think we will be hearing nothing but good things from Mr Williams from now on!
