스토든, 27, 최근 Fox News Digital과의 인터뷰에서 현재 제목이 없는 책을 집필하면서 논쟁의 여지가 있는 결혼 및 기타 삶의 사건에 대해 이야기했습니다..

“A lot of different chapters in my life have been challenging to live through once and then to kind of go back and relive it again in order to tell the story is extra challenging, but it also gives me a better insight,” Stodden told Fox News Digital.
“I’m working with a therapist right now to kind of process it all too as I’m writing it out and reliving it again. And it’s freeing. It’s definitely given me a better outlook on it. I see it for what it is,” they noted.
For Stodden, the writing process has “shined a light” on the alleged “grooming” they experienced, 그들은 말했다.
“I’m working with a therapist right now to kind of process it all too as I’m writing it out and reliving it again. And it’s freeing.”
“It has shined a light on the grooming and what happened to me and what actually happens to a lot of other children in the USA as well,” Stodden shared.
A rep for Hutchison did not immediately respond to Fox News’ 의견 요청.
Going through marriage at a young age helped Stodden become “so strong.”
“I am a really empathetic, sensitive person, and I always have been,” Stodden told Fox News Digital. “But my experience has made me so strong.”
“If it didn’t happen, I feel like my whole outlook on life would be so different. Experiences that are traumatizing can either break us or we can utilize them to shape us into a stronger individual. And that’s really one of the main reasons why I’m speaking out is because I want past victims and survivors to really tap into that part of themselves. We are so strong.
“It’s just really made me very fearless.”
As Stodden has moved on in life, they’ve also moved on in love. 그들 got engaged to Chris Sheng in May 2021.
“Playboy에는 실제로 탐구된 적이 없는 문제가 있었습니다. … OH and the ring made me gag it’s so beautiful,” Stodden captioned a video of their engagement ring on Instagram.

“The next time I walk down the aisle, I want to just feel like I’m completely prepared.”
“I feel so blessed and fortunate,” Sheng added. “We have both grown so much since we first met, and the fact that we have both been able to grow into better, 강하다, more secure individuals while still being in a relationship together makes me have faith that this partnership will last a lifetime.
“For the first time we’re both experiencing unconditional love. The truest kind of love. The kind where we may not always like each other but will ALWAYS love each other. I promise to always be your rock, 지원하다, and shoulder to lean on – 무슨 일이 있어도. I got you. Ily,” 그는 결론을 내렸다.
The two are still engaged, but Stodden wants to take their time when it comes to another marriage.
“I think that’s the key for me is to take my time and not to rush anything,” Stodden told Fox News Digital. “The next time I walk down the aisle, I want to just feel like I’m completely prepared. I wasn’t prepared the first time, and there’s a lot of trauma surrounding the idea of marriage for me.”
Stodden says this time will be different because they will “be an adult.”
“My brain will be developed, and I’ll be able to make my own decision completely and fully transparently to myself,” Stodden said.
“I’m not sitting around waiting for an apology from all of the past people that treated me like s–티. It’s not what I need.”
Stodden has also been a victim of online bullying. They publicly called out Chrissy Teigen for cyberbullying 에 2021. Teigen had announced she was leaving Twitter due to the negativity; Stodden accused the model of bullying them online for years.
Although Teigen has never directly apologized for the 사이버 괴롭힘, Stodden told Fox News Digital they aren’t waiting around for one.
“I haven’t heard from her. I don’t need an apology,” Stodden said.
“I’m not sitting around waiting for an apology from all of the past people that treated me like s–티. It’s not what I need. And it’s taught me to tap more into my own strength.”
Stodden’s memoir isn’t the only project the model has been working on. They also plan to be more involved with animal rights activism.
Stodden became a vegetarian around age 16 and explained that they struggled with eating meat from a young age, sharing that they would “just cry” when they would go fishing with their parents.
