During the conversation, he spoke about “the dark years” of his career and how his wife, Debbie Osmond helped him through.

“From a personal point of view, I couldn’t have been happier because I got married in ’78. I finally found the love of my life. I could spend the rest of the show just talking about how she saved me,” he said.

“It took me about 10 years before things started kicking back in again ’cause that’s when ‘Soldier Of Love’ hit in ’89. But I had tried Broadway in a show called Little Johnny Jones. And we opened and closed the same night — that hurts!”

“I couldn’t get a record deal. I couldn’t even get arrested. I mean, it was, I couldn’t do anything. It was, everything was gone,” he said, adding that he leaned on Debbie.

“I was in such a desperate place that Debbie pulled me out of it. Whenever I make a decision in my life, the first thing I think about is her. How does it affect her? And the second thing I think about is how does it affect my children? The third, now, is how does it affect my grandchildren. And then I’m fourth. If all four of those are a green light, then I’ll do it. I think that is what’s really helped this 43-year marriage is that she comes first. But I love what I do.”

Drew Barrymore also recently opened up about her struggle with sobriety.
