Cheryl Ladd reveals she battled depression early in her career: ‘I was going through something really dark’

The ageless Cheryl Ladd was guest host today on The Talk where the topic was Destiny’s Child’s Michelle Williams checking into a mental health facility for depression.

Ladd talked candidly for the first time about a similar experience.

“I’m just so proud that someone is speaking out like that, because when I was on “Charlie’s Angels” early in my career, I had all this success but I was going through something really dark,” said Ladd. “Nobody really knows about it, as a matter of fact I’m finally doing my memoirs and excited about telling all the parts of the story. Because if in your life, you don’t have the light and the dark you don’t have a picture. And you have to remember that. And I went for help and I needed help.”

Host Julie Chen asked her, “Was it hard for you to get help?” Ladd responded: “It was…it was so private and because I was always this very positive person when it started to come toward me, I really struggled so I was really happy I got help.”
