Sadie Robertson recently admitted that she understands why some young Hollywood stars go wild. She shared a personal struggle with an eating disorder and body image issues and attributes Dancing With The Stars and Hollywood with her disorder.
Sadie Robertson’s Eating Disorder
Sadie Robertson has been writing incredibly candid accounts on her blog lately. The young Duck Dynasty heiress has admitted to serious relationship issues and is now opening up about a past eating disorder.
Sadie explained that her time on Dancing With The Stars is what triggered her unhealthy behaviors. “It was the year after Dancing with the Stars. Shocker, I know. The girl who did it.’ I went to Hollywood and didn’t go crazy for the world to see,” Sadie recalled. Many headlines at the time were written about how impressive it was that Sadie could make the transition to Hollywood without turning to the stereotypical party scene.
However, Sadie is now admitting that the transition did, in fact, affect her. She now understands why so many young stars rebel and find themselves in despair. “I hear it said all of the time, ‘How do all of these young people go to Hollywood and just lose their minds?’ To be honest, I get it. I feel their pain.”
Sadie’s Fear For Her Followers
Sadie decided to write this revealing blog post to help her many followers understand the reality of unhealthy thought patterns. She explained, “I personally think our culture has created a perspective that is so far off from what we were created for. We search a screen for someone’s heart, but all we find is comments, memes, sub-tweets, twitter-wars, articles and edited photos. We’ve completely swapped out people for profiles…”
Sadie is now healthy, and happy. She’s glad that she’s able to talk openly about her struggles, and wants her friends and family to be able to hold her accountable. Are you surprised that Hollywood caused Sadie Robertson’s eating disorder?
