Wow. When I sat down to watch Nicole Scherzinger’s Behind The Music episode on VH1 last night, I had no idea this beautiful girl had so many struggles. As a superstar she did one hell of a job of hiding it. You can watch it again tonight at 9pm on VH1
I first met Nicole when I worked at B96 in Chicago. She was part of the girl group, Eden’s Crush. She was super quiet, which of course comes across bitchy. It seemed like she didn’t want to be there. I’m like, this is B96 Chicago we are playing your song, this is a big deal girl! Nicole was dressed down in a flannel shirt. I remember saying to myself, “why is this gorgeous girl so depressed.” After seeing her Behind The Music episode, I get it.
Nicole’s story is deep, and incredibly sad. We learned that Nicole had an 8 year secret battle with bulimia. She appeared to be on top of the world as part of the Pussycat Dolls, and during that time she was hurting herself. It’s takes a lot of courage to share what she did, hopefully her story will inspire others. If you or someone you know is battling an eating disorder, know that there is help you can get. You can get through it. Click here for information.
