It wouldn’t be correct to compare this first guy to Ted Williams, the voice-over talent who rose to YouTube stardom and national prominence earlier this year. First, he is talented not for a God-give gift but for the three, yes, three degrees he’s earned. Second, he doesn’t have an addiction problem. Check out his story below.

Next, shout out to our brave men and women in the Armed Forces, specifically the Air Force, regardless of if they can cover Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” or not.

Speaking of covers, where’s KanYe West when you need him? JUST KIDDING TAYLOR SWIFT – who BTW, SMILES as she sings her rendition of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.” I’d expect nothing less.


A feel-good story that has taken twists and turns, YouTube sensation Ted Williams is now reporting back to rehab to treat his addictions. TMZ’s Gary Trock elaborated on “The Ralphie Radio Show.”

Viral sensation and voiceover talent Ted Williams is in his second rehab stint in the past three months.

A leading expert and doctor in addiction medicine and a former deputy director under President George W. Bush, Dr. Andrea Barthwell called in to “The Ralphie Radio Show” to share her thoughts on Williams’ placement in a sober halfway house.

Dr. Barthwell received the Betty Ford Award in 2003. She currently serves as the CEO of the Two Dreams Outer Banks treatment program for alcoholism and drug abuse.

Ted Williams is scheduled to enter a rehabilitation facility after admitting during a taping of the Dr. Phil Show that he is still drinking. A spokesperson for the program said that Ted, with his family’s support, made the decision to get treatment, after acknowledging that his drinking has not ceased.

“If Ted is ever going to get better, he’s got to be honest with himself and admit he’s addicted to drugs and alcohol,” said Dr. Phil. “I’ve told him it’s not going to be easy and it’s going to take a lot of hard work. It might be a long journey for him, but this is a big step in the right direction.”

(Previous story) A daughter of Ted Williams, the formerly homeless radio announcer whose viral video comeback made headlines all over the world last week, claims her father has relapsed due to all the attention and is drinking again.  Daughter Jemay Williams tells Entertainment Tonight her dad has consumed a bottle of Grey Goose vodka a night since he gained fame, and he should go back to rehab.  Ted Williams tells ET Jemay’s claims are not true and she is just trying to sell his “story.”

NBC reported Tuesday that Ted Williams was picked up by police and questioned Monday night about a disturbance at the Renaissance Hotel in Los Angeles, and quotes sources as saying Williams got into an argument with Jemay.  During an interview on The Insider, Ted Williams claimed Jemay swung an ice bucket at him while they were arguing, saying “My daughter hit me.”  The LAPD would only confirm that two people at the hotel were brought in for questioning, but were not booked.
