"The moment that made me realize that I'm going to kick this is my best friend Erin at the time looked at me and she said, 'Lex, if you think you're fat, what do you think I look like?'," Bliss told Garcia as she started crying. "That broke my heart because it wasn't about that. I didn't want to enforce my ways on somebody else because of that. I had gone through so much, I would never wish that on my own worst enemy. And my own best friend is here starting to doubt herself because of me."
- SmackDown Women's Champion Natalya also discussed her own battles with anorexia when she was younger on the latest episode of Chasing Glory With Lilian Garcia on PodcastOne.com.
"I think your childhood has a huge effect on you, and I think it did affect me because I didn't really have a father figure until I was an adult," Natalya said. "And I realized there may have been some animosity or anger... And it's funny because Alexa Bliss talked about having an eating disorder, and this is the first time I've ever talked about this - Natty exclusive! I had an eating disorder when I was eighteen, and it spanned the course of about three years. In the course of two months - the summer that my uncle Owen died - I lost 40 pounds in two months, and my family was really scared, and I was really angry at them. And I didn't realize it until years later, how crazy and scary I looked.
"I've actually talked to Alexa Bliss, and I said, 'I just give you so much credit for being able to talk about it.' Since that happened, I've never been able to share that publicly with anyone. But then I thought, since she talked about her situation, it made me really respect her more because we can actually raise awareness, and help teach young girls that going through something like this is really common. Lots of people go through it."
