Emily then went into the types of hurtful messages she received online. “It was women ... they would send me direct messages on Instagram and call me a fat a**, disgusting, I needed to lose weight, I'm not healthy, how could I go out like that ... I mean it was horrible," she admitted.

The RHOC newbie switched gears shortly after her breakdown and said, “It made me want to fight back but in a positive way. I'm gonna use it as a positive and say, '’You know what, I like the way I look. I'm confident.’ We don't have to be the same size to feel beautiful or sexy. All women deserve to feel like that.”
