Angela Simmons is opening up about her experiences with domestic violence.
The mom of one gets candid about the physical and domestic abuse she suffered in the past, and how she struggled to get out of it, on Thursday's episode of Growing Up Hip Hop. ET has an exclusive clip.
"I never realized, I guess until I went through domestic violence and the verbal abuse that there are so many other women like that, and then you start realizing how many people are like, behind closed doors and can't get out of it," Simmons shares with friends in the clip. "Like, I think for me, I never thought this would be me."
"That was like, one of the worst times of my life," she adds.
For Simmons, the hardest part was "feeling alone."
"It's the first time that something happens where you're physically hit, assaulted, something happens, and for me, that first time didn't feel real. Like, 'I'm not going through this.' But a lot of the times, I'm like, 'I can't believe I went through that,'" she explains. "But it was years, and it was abuse, it was verbal abuse, it was emotional abuse... and I felt so stuck, because I thought it would get better, and it didn't."
Simmons doesn't name her abuser in the clip, but says her former partner talked to her like she was "nothing."
"You kind of feel like, used -- like used goods. Like, 'Who wants me after I've been through this?' It's not easy," she tells the camera.
The reality star reveals she's been able to work through the trauma with the help of a therapist. "I think one of the best things you could do is go to therapy," she shares.
This season of Growing Up Hip Hop has been an emotional one for Simmons, who on last week's episode opened up about having to tell her 3-year-old son, SJ, about his late father, Sutton Tennyson.
