Simpson has been making headlines for openly revealing some difficult details about her past struggles with sexual abuse, marriage and alcohol.

"I had started a spiral," she told Kotb, noting that, a few years back, she was drinking constantly. "And I couldn't catch up with myself."

Simpson said she quit drinking after a Halloween in which she found herself disconnected and not present for her kids.

It was a wake-up call that led her to become sober and to start working with a therapist.
