Lisa Rinna and husband Harry Hamlin's daughter Delilah Belle has confessed she's been to rehab twice for depression in the past year.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hill's star's girl, 21, told fans the sad news on her Instagram Stories on Friday, July 19. Delilah began by writing, “I’ve been hesitant to share this information with you guys because there are a lot of you now and sometimes that scares me. I strive to try my hardest to be a positive influence on my younger followers. I wanted to share this with you guys today because it could help at least one person struggling with anxiety and or depression.”
She then confided, “This time last year I was in rehabilitation. I moved to New York to start my journey as a student at NYU. Not long after I moved to New York I began having terrible depression. I started attracting negative people into my life because my thoughts were so negative.” Delilah noted, "I got trapped in a severely unhealthy relationship that pushed me over the edge. I couldn’t get out of the relationship because I thought I was deserving of it.”
About eight months later, Delilah said she “couldn’t take the pain anymore” and contacted her mother, 56. “In February I called my mom, packed some bags, and took the soonest flight back to LA. Two weeks later I was admitted into a rehab facility. I knew the way I was living was unhealthy and detrimental to my mental health so I called my mom and told her I needed help,” the young model wrote. She said rehab was the “best thing that has ever happened to me. I learned so much about being independent, feeling less shameful and guilty, I learned about self-love instead of self-deprivation and so much more.”
Delilah said in her post that she returned to the rehab center again in June. “This time I stayed for 60 days (two months),” Delilah wrote. “I worked through traumas and self-love. But most importantly I learned what self-respect meant.” “Saying no is OKAY! Do only things that make you happy and make you feel good about yourself. Don’t let another individual take over your life and tell you who you are or how to be. Take control of your own life and get rid of all negative people and energy that may surround you. And I guarantee this will lead to a happier life even if it’s hard in the moment.”
To end her Instagram missive, Delilah urged her followers to get help if they have problems. Delilah's sister has fought her own demons. In March 2018, Lisa and Harry's other daughter, Amelia Gray, 18, revealed she had previously suffered from anorexia.vBack then, Amelia shared on Instagram, “Usually, when people are struggling with an eating disorder it stems from your mind, and your body is a reflection of it. I could go on and on about that time of my life, but the most important part about it was waking up one morning and deciding to stop sabotaging myself. Once I got the help that I needed…I began to try to love myself for me.”
Amelia went public with her problems after fans had critiqued her figure, comparing her body to times when she was skinnier. “I have a lot of health complications after starving myself for so long so it’s going to be a journey that I go through for a large part of my life,” she wrote. On an old RHOBH episode, Kim Richards implied Lisa herself ate little. She told Lisa that if she ate a piece of bread "she might be a happier person,” during a spat at a restaurant in Amsterdam.
