But in the upcoming episode of Kendra on Top, the 30-year-old reveals that her younger years were even darker — she even tried to kill herself as a teenager.
Speaking to her therapist Dr. Monica Shahbaznia, the former Playboy model opened up about her past, saying:
“When I was a teenager, I battled some severe depression. I attempted suicide a couple times. I went to a mental institution…drugs, overdosing, slitting wrists, all that stuff.”
After this revelation, Kendra’s therapist attributes the reality star’s troubled adolescence to the emotional distance of her mother, who she still has a severely contentious relationship with.
“I was left on my own. I was a young f**king girl. All I wanted was for my mom to say, ‘I love you, and I’m here for you.’ I never got that.”
This is so sad to hear. Depression is no joke, and we’re glad that Kendra is able to confront the demons of her tragic past in hopes of bettering her life!
Watch the episode when Kendra on Top airs Friday at 9 p.m. EST on WEtv.
