Even as far as to throw/break household items."

In trying on garments, she whispered, "I don't like the feel of this one. It's just not my style."

Todd pointed out, "Well, if anything, you're learning what you don't want."

Christy complained that the piece was uncomfortable, sighing, "I can never wear this. I don't have the body for it. My boobs go down to the floor."

The reality TV star lost 80 pounds in gastric surgery, and Todd told her, "Your mind is still back where your body was before surgery."

Christy replied, "You're right. I just don't have that confidence yet. I'm sorry. It's true. And I know you say, 'Oh, you're fine. You look great and sexy,' but in my world, I don't."

Todd recalled how she's been telling him to get his hip fixed, and she should "get over your insecurities about your body if you're gonna make lingerie... Because if you're not confident, why should anyone else be confident in your line?"

Christy said, "I'm sorry. It's just hard for me."

Todd said, "You know what you should do? You should take all these insecurities you have and turn them into drive because then you can figure out, 'You know what? This would work if I did this.' And you use that insecurity as motivation."

Christy told the cameras, "I used to be so miserable because I didn't like the way I looked. Todd is reminding me it's not only my body I had to change. It's my mind too."

Todd tried to be encouraging as she continued to try on lingerie, but in a sour note, Christy told him, "I know you're trying to be encouraging, but you're not helping."

She then moaned,"Oh, my God. What is all this stuff? I'm not 20 anymore. My boobs sag down to my belly button. I need some lift! I gotta try something else on. I don't like this one."

Todd wanted to see but Christy snapped, "Just freaking give me a moment.
