Today, Anderson Cooper's new daytime talk show, Anderson, premieres with an exclusive interview with Amy Winehouse's family. According to a press release, Amy's father Mitch says of the singer's death: "She hadn't taken drugs in three years. Everyone thought I was in denial, I wasn't in denial, she hadn't taken drugs. She'd been clean for round about three years….Her problem was alcohol, the last few years of her life… She was prescribed Liprium, which is a normal drug, which is given to people who are detoxing… it kind of decreases the chances of having seizures… She had a series of seizures brought on by this binge drinking and then stopping to drink….I think it's what the doctor said, I think she had a seizure and this was the time when there was no one there to rescue her."
