Lynda Carter: 'I'm an Alcoholic'

People reports:
To children of the '70s, she was a glamorous TV icon with her bullet-proof bracelets and Star-Spangled corset. But now Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has turned the "Lasso of Truth" on herself, admitting publicly that she's an alcoholic.

"My husband asked me ... 'Can't you just stop this for the children and for me?' " His plea prompted her to seek treatment at a rehab facility near her home in Washington, D.C. "I needed help – I begged God in heaven to help me figure this out," says Carter, now sober for nearly ten years. What has the recovery process taught her? The best measure of a human being, she says, is "how we treat the people who love us, and the people that we love."
