When Chelsea was ten, she had a brother that was 22 who died tragically when he fell off a cliff. She opened up yesterday and is talking about a very serious subject from her life.

"He was hiking in the Grand Tentons and he literally fell like 80 feet off a cliff."

Talk about a scary, sad, and an emotional thing to have to deal with. Instead of dealing with her grief, Chelsea said she just shut down.

"I was shut down because I didn't want to cry in front of anyone.  I had seen my parents cry I was embarrassed."
