She spilled to People:

"I just didn't want to worry. I truly didn't want to worry about all the effects that go along with diabetes. I genuinely [would] worry all the time about losing my toes."

The star revealed that she struggled for over a decade to lose weight naturally, suffering from depression, anxiety, and bulimia due to her parent's divorce in the meantime. Finally, in May 2016, she underwent laproscopic bariatric surgery to help shed excess pounds.

She candidly described the experience in her memoir, writing:

Did Cookie want no part of the makeup magic??

While it's kind of disappointing, at least her four costars get to shine in the spotlight! Ch-ch-check out a peek at one of the soon-to-launch products:

Way Too Much Happened On The Empire Mid-Season Finale — Find Out Who Went Back To Jail & Who Might Not Survive To Spring HERE!

What didn't happen last night?

On January 7, 2015, Empire took over pop culture and became one of the most watched shows in history!

Now, almost a year later, most of that charm has worn off and the hit FOX drama is trying to up the ante by throwing whatever it can at the wall to see what sticks.

Wednesday night marked the show's first ever mid-season finale, and with it came practically too much drama to handle.

Not only did Taraji P. Henson's Cookie return to jail — to perform for her former cellmates — Yazz's Hakeem voted against Terrence Howard's Lucious so he's now out of a job, and on top of all that and Naomi Campbell's Camilla finally returned to stir things up!

But in the most intense scene of all Kaitlin Doubleday's very pregnant Rhonda was pushed down the stairs by a mysterious assailant!

We're still loving the show, but if Rhonda or her baby die we will riot.

Unfortunately, Empire isn't coming back for another four months, but make sure to catch the Lyon family when they get back in action Wednesday, March 30 at 9 p.m. EST on FOX!
