On Friday, July 19, the model revealed that she’s been to rehab multiple times for depression. And while Delilah was initially nervous to share her story out of fear it would hurt her modeling career she ultimately decided to open up in hopes it would help others who are struggling.
“This time last year I was in rehabilitation,” Delilah wrote via Instagram Stories.
“I moved to New York to start my journey as a student at NYU,” Delilah explained. “Not long after I moved to New York I began having terrible depression.”
“I started attracting negative people into my life because my thoughts were so negative,” she shared. “I got trapped in a severely unhealthy relationship that pushed me over the edge. I couldn’t get out of the relationship because I thought I was deserving of it.”
In February, after eight months of suffering, Delilah reached out to her mom for help and flew home to L.A.
“Two weeks later I was admitted into a rehab facility,” she wrote. “I knew the way I was living was unhealthy and detrimental to my mental health so I called my mom and told her I needed help.”
Delilah says from there her life began to turn around.
“Little did I know this was … the BEST thing that has ever happened to me,” she gushed. “I learned so much about being independent, feeling less shameful and guilty, I learned about self-love [sic] instead of self-deprivation [sic] and so much more.”
In June, Delilah went back to the facility for another two-month stint.
“I worked through traumas, and self-love [sic],” she recalled. “But most importantly I learned what self-respect [sic] meant.”
“Don’t let another individual take over your life and tell you who you are or how to be. Take control of your own life and get rid of all negative people and energy that may surround you.”
“I guarantee this will lead to a happier life even if it’s hard in the moment,” she advised.
Part 2 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 9 reunion airs on Tuesday, July 23, at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
