On Sunday, she was accused of fibbing about having mental health struggles in an attempt to get more “air time” on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Amelia, 19, posted a screenshot of the comment on her Instagram Story, calling the accusation “disgusting.”
“I usually don’t post these. But this really got to me,” she wrote. “Lying about a mental illness is disgusting. Something I hope nobody would ever do.”
Amelia added how the only reason she appears on the franchise is due to her mother, who is a full-time cast member.
“I seriously can’t believe I’m being accusing of lying about anorexia to get more ‘air time’ sorry but I’m forced to be on the housewives by my mom,” she continued. “Ask anyone it’s the last thing I want to do. I couldn’t care less about air time. So f— you.”
Amelia first opened up about her battle in 2018 on an episode of RHOBH last year when she admitted to her mother that things got so bad with her anorexia, she “could have died.”
Rinna admitted how she was worried Amelia would never overcome the eating disorder. “The scariest thing about anorexia is: Is she going to have this forever?” she said.
“I don’t want to see her suffer. You want to fix it,” she added “You want to make it go away. You want to erase it. You know, you just want to take your child out of pain. You don’t want your child to be in pain.”
Amelia revealed how she began to speak out regarding her own struggle in hopes that it would inspire others to seek help and go into recovery.
“I am SO beyond humbled and grateful to have the platform that I do at such a young age,” Amelia said in a 2018 Instagram post. “And to wake up every morning with a little girl reaching out to me and telling me I am her inspiration, really makes me feel like I have a purpose. I went through this journey not for attention, not for people to pitty [sic] me, but to help. I am on this earth to help people, and I know that.”
