You may remember Wendy Kaufman AKA the "Snapple Lady" as a happy-go-lucky brand ambassador for the fruity beverages, but she wasn't always so cheerful.
In fact, in a recent interview with for "Oprah: Where Are They Now?," Kaufman opened up about a coke addiction so severe, it had her praying for her death at one point.
The 58-year-old admitted she first dabbled with the drug as a way of coping with her weight, and quickly became hooked.
"I did try coke, and I loved it," she confessed. "I started to do cocaine in 1980, right after I graduated college. By 1989, I could press my cheek and blood would come out of my nose."
"I was so sick that it really did bring me to my knees," she continued. "I said to God, on my knees, hysterical crying, 'Either kill me or please, please help me get well. I cannot live like this for one second longer.'"
Kauffman received an answer to her prayers when her boss suggested she become the face of the Snapple campaign.
"What most people don't know about me [is] Snapple was much more than a job," she said of the Snapple Lady gig, which she held for 17 years. "It was a lifeline and it was a way for me to stay sober. And it was a vehicle to do wonderful, nice things for other people."
And the role helped her reassess her past choices.
"People just loved me and I remember crying, literally, like, 'What did I do to myself? What did I do to myself for all these years?'" she said. "So, the addiction was great because, in a way, it made me really look at myself and re-evaluate everything."
