On Monday, her family went on The Doctors and revealed a horrific secret that the Colorado-native kept hidden.

Her mom Sylvia confessed that she was sexually assaulted at the age of 15 by a man twice her age.

"At the height of Mandy's career, she suffered a very serious trauma. She had been raped… She just felt so ashamed. She didn't want people to know… I think it affected her forever."

The incident forever scarred the actress.
