One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
It must be Simon Cowell's influence!
For Thursday night's X Factor Final Four Party at Mixology 101 & Planet Dailies, the just-turned-31-year-old flaunted her long blonde
extensions locks and toned dancer's body in a Christopher Kane mini dress and burgundy Miu Miu platform heels.
Our fave former Mouseketeer was sweet and seksi in the leather bustier number with multicolor floral embroidery & side lace panels. She completed the look with dark-lined eyes and a peachy blush.
We just wish she'd stood up straighter and looked a bit more relaxed under all that attention.
Oh, well, baby steps!
