“It"s been an uphill battle. And while life is great ... before I can talk about the best of times, I need to tell you about the worst," she said.
“I always knew that was wrong. I kind of lost myself for a little bit," Kendra told the 'Today" Show about her stripping and doping days.
She said that even in her bad-girl days she knew she wanted a different life, reports the New York Daily News.
“I was a very good person doing it, but I was kind of still embarrassed about it. It wasn't me," Kendra said. “I had so much pain that I just wanted to die. It wasn"t that I was trying to die, it was that the physical pain of cutting myself took away from my pain inside," she added.
