While chatting with Wendy, Columbus, whose fall from grace has been documented all over the tabloids and blogs, opened up about being fired from “Scandal” and his struggles with addiction.

He admitted to Wendy, “Was I abusing drugs and alcohol? Yes! Have I ever abused a woman? Never! Maybe with my words…possibly.”

He also revealed he hasn’t seen his daughter in three years! Heartbreaking.

Watch is very honest and candid convo below.


Despite all of his trials and shortcomings, I’m glad to see Columbus on the up and up and getting his life back on track.

I wish him well.
