Lilian Muli: I turned to alcohol after my divorce

Screen siren and Citizen TV News Anchor Lilian Muli Kanene has revealed she turned to the bottle for consolation after a nasty divorce with her ex-husband whom she referred to as “Josh”.

Lilian spoke after an incident where she was captured on camera in a bar scuffle last year.

The amateur video was captured by a reveler as Lilian dressed down a waitress at the establishment.

However, Lilian told True Love Magazine that the kind of roasting she got from Kenyans after the incident made her get a meltdown since she had no one to talk to yet she was going through a hard time.

“I started drinking a lot when I left Josh’s dad. I had moved from Karen, got a new life with Josh, but one day, after three years I realized that I was actually separated and trying to wear a face that everything was okay; all while still looking good on TV,” she said.

She added that, “I had a public meltdown. I screamed at someone at a restaurant and a patron recorded the entire incident which later went on social media. Now if there is someone who gets affected by social media it would be me. Something like that really gets to me and grounds me to the point I can lock all my doors and really hibernate.”

Lilian said dealing with her divorce was really hard because she just had her mother and another distant friend to talk to. All her other friends kept away after the tirade with the waitress.

“It was during this time that I realized my friendships were plastic and basic, because apart from my mother and a very distant friend, nobody else called to ask, ‘How are you holding up? How are you feeling about this? What happened?’ Instead everyone passed judgement and kept away.”
