As the star of the E! reality series Pretty Wild, Alexis Haines appeared to be living the glamorous life. In reality, she was battling depression, drug addiction and trauma. From panhandling drugs to partying with rock stars, Alexis’ life was more than just pretty wild; it was nearly fatal.
Alexis shows how women can stand up and heal from the institutionalized and systemic trauma that keeps them from recognizing how powerful they truly are.
Courtney Friel partied hard, bulldozed any haters in her path and went on to become the youngest on-air anchor ever hired at Fox News.
To keep the trauma of the mass shootings, murders and car accidents she covered at bay, Friel drank more alcohol and ramped up her use of Adderall, Xanax and cocaine…until she ended up in rehab. What came next was a rocky divorce, a spiritual crisis and a hopeful shot at a new life—if she could reckon with who she really was.
