The reality star reveals in the video, 'I've been MIA for the last few weeks, and this has been really hard for me to talk about...'
Davina goes on to explain how the negative backlash from the show affected her.
She adds, 'Copping a really large amount of hate is something I am really not used to, and to be honest it really shook me.
'That's why I've been distant and silent.'
Tearing up, Davina reveals that she has been going through a 'tough' and 'traumatic' time in her life, but wants to thank her 'fans, friends, followers and clients' for helping her through.
