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.

The heartwarming tale of Ted Williams, the homeless man with the golden voice, wouldn't have been possible without Columbus Dispatch reporter Doral Chenoweth, who spotted Williams panhandling on a local highway and shot a brief video focusing on Williams' unique talent.

Since the video hit the Internet earlier this week, Williams has received multiple offers to do voice-over work, including one from MSNBC. Appearing on 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell' (weekdays, 10PM ET on MSNBC), Williams talked about the video Chenoweth made.

"I had no idea this was going to be anything," Williams said of the video. "I thought if anything it would be a little tidbit of entertainment."

Then O'Donnell announced that Doral Chenoweth was backstage and would be joining Williams on the show.

"I love this man. He is truly, truly the reason," Williams said, his face beaming. "You couldn't have brought a better person."

As Chenowith was walking onto the set, Williams asked O'Donnell if he could get out of his chair so he could hug Chenowith.

Once O'Donnell said that would be OK, Williams locked Chenoweth in a warm embrace, thanking him for all his help. It was an incredibly powerful and emotional moment to watch on television.
