“I don’t know whether I felt empowered by dressing scantily clad, showing cleavage, etc …or if I just felt it was expected of me,” she wrote on Instagram, “but now I can confidently and 100% proudly say, modesty is what empowers me these days.”
Crystal, who also appeared on The Girls Next Door TV show, further reflected on her time in the Mansion last year. “In a lot of ways it was a sanctuary to me, but in other ways, it was my prison,” she wrote. “I’m still healing from certain experiences… It feels very contradictory at times to reflect back. I really want to start opening up and being honest with you guys about it all.”
