“The thing is, I pass out a lot,” she said Entertainment tonight in an interview during her run on the dance competition show.
‘It’s part of the reason I have Scout and it doesn’t mean I’m losing consciousness’ [or] it’s a whole ambulance experience, it’s something that I lose my sight, gravity pulls me down and I’m very disoriented and away from a spell,” she added.
