This led to people noticing and Sadie claims she was body shamed, which led to her struggling with an eating disorder.
“I had this body that I never thought I’d have. I had a six-pack for two weeks, but then Thanksgiving hit and it went away. People started commenting.”
Negative Influences and Mean Comments
The Dancing With the Stars alum didn’t blame the show directly, but did place responsibility on viewer comments, as well as negative influences in her life.
