After her unseemly weekend drug bust in New York, "Extra" caught up with actress Tatum O'Neal in NYC, where the mother of three opened up about her recent arrest for buying crack and powdered cocaine -- and how she's on the road to recovery.

"I'm on the road to recovery. It's an every day struggle," said the Oscar winner. "You try to do the best you can -- I go to a 12-step program. I go every single day. Sometimes I go twice a day."

As for her kids' reactions to the arrest, O'Neal says, "How do you think they would be feeling? It's embarrassing, right? They love me very much. They know I have a problem."

The former Mrs. McEnroe will face charges of misdemeanor drug possession -- she was released without bail until her court date later this month.
