Meredith Vieira Relives Telling Her Kids About Husband's MS Diagnosis
Thursday on "The Talk," guest co-host Meredith Vieira opens up about her husband keeping his MS diagnosis a secret and realizing the moment they decided to tell their children. "My husband was diagnosed with MS when he was 25 and he hid it from everybody...And when we got married, almost none of his friends knew about it. The kids didn't know," reveals Vieira. That was until their son, Ben at age 6 asked her, "'Mom, what's the matter with Dad?'... Kids are smart and they know, and so we told our kids... and then we started to tell some people in town... and this woman said to me and she was a friend, not a close friend, but she said, 'Thank God, we thought he was the town drunk.' To which I said, 'He is the town drunk, but that's not the point'... because he'd stumble all the time. We found out when people hear, they want to help. They want to be part of the solution."
