Fellow viral video star Ted Williams has suffered a similar fall from Internet granted grace. Williams went from homeless to gainfully employed after video of his radio perfect voice went viral. But as the recovering drug and alcohol addict’s past was revealed, the story quickly went from uplifting to something a little sadder in only two weeks. Williams was arrested, but not charged, in January after he and his daughter argued in a Los Angeles hotel. The next day he admitted he wasn’t sober on the “Dr. Phil” show and entered rehab. Now his story is taking another familiar turn: he’s currently filming a reality show.
