The style guru became self-conscious about her body early on when she was diagnosed with psoriasis, a chronic skin disorder. The diagnosis devastated her.

"It was head to toe, from the neck down, red scales all over my body," London said. "I would get bullied at school."

London opens up even more about her struggle in her new TLC special, Love, Lust or Run: Stacy Revealed. She also dishes on how she uses retail therapy as a remedy for herself and others.

"I know what it's like to feel less-than about yourself," London said. "And I can spot it now very quickly in other women. The more I can be compassionate with them, truly they're giving me the gift, because it's allowed me to be more compassionate with myself."

Love, Lust or Run airs Thursdays on TLC, and London just announced a new gig. She will also be contributing to The View's 19th season.

"So excited to join as a contributor for season 19!" London tweeted on Tuesday. "What a legacy!"
