Last month, Tamron Hall's new ABC talk show premiered. Her new venture marked her return to daytime TV after leaving NBC's "Today" two years ago in 2017. Now, during a recent interview with prison rights advocate Topeka Sam, Hall shared a story about her own past that shocked some viewers.

According to the Daily Mail, Hall, 49, revealed to the her audience that she used to "facilitate" the sale of cocaine with her college boyfriend. While the context of her revelation remains unclear at this time, it reportedly shocked network executives. This, in turn, allegedly stunned "frantic producers" who then had to "scramble to cut it out of the pre-recorded program."

In a statement provided to Daily Mail, Hall said the situation had been misconstrued and she was purely having an "open and honest conversation" about "women, incarceration and mistakes made."

"During an interview with prison rights advocate Topeka Sam, I shared a story about a bad situation I got myself into when I was 19. I never dealt drugs," she stated, adding, "I am now nearly 50 years old and was reflecting on a bad judgment call that could have turned worse."

Continuing, she said, "For legal reasons a portion of that segment was edited from the show. I hope my show can be a forum for sharing stories without shame or judgment - including a conversation we're having Friday on opioid addiction."

This is not the first time that Hall's show has made news in recent months. Previously, Matt Lauer was reportedly considering giving her his first interview since being fired from "Today" in Nov. 2017 and amid a new rape allegation from Brooke Nevils. At this time, it remains to be seen whether the former host will follow through with the appearance.

"Tamron Hall" airs weekdays on ABC.
