Leigh says that after a hard day of work, she likes to "unwind" with a drink. 

"On an average day, I consume, most likely three to five drinks. Sometimes, it could be more; sometimes, it could be less," she says. "I don’t believe my drinking’s a problem.”

“If I was this big, no-good, drunk alcoholic, pill-popping fool, I would not be able to hold the lifestyle I do, with usually $300-$500 in my wallet. I always have my rent paid in advance,” Leigh says. “I hope [Dr. Phil] doesn’t tell me to quit drinking. I don’t care to stop that in my life right now. That’s the one thing I do that I do enjoy. I don’t have a concern there. My children do.”
