The 17-year-old revealed that she “definitely” is addicted to therapists to help her deal with hatred from trolls.
Charli D’Amelio is not sure if season two of her new reality TV show will be in the cards.
On her way out of LAX with her co-stars / family, the 17-year-old said she was “not sure yet” whether she and her family would join another round of “The D’Amelio Show.”
The Hulu series focuses mainly on the daily lives of Charli and big sister Dixie D’Amelio, 20, and their struggle to balance school, fame on social media and — hardest of all — Internet haters.

Both sisters become honest in the show about how their massive presence on social media also leads to constant criticism from others, criticism that sometimes has a negative impact on both of them.
Charlie said how she handles internet “trolls” and haters “depends on the day”, but admitted that she “definitely” seeks professional help when strangers judged online become too much.
While trolls are ubiquitous online, Charli also said she did not get as much hatred as some might have expected after her recent debut on Time’s Next 100 list – with a text by Jennifer Lopez, no less.
“I did not, the reaction was actually super sweet,” she insisted. “Everyone was really cute.”
The teenager has been open about seeking mental health care as well as her inability to find the right therapist on the reality show.
In episode seven of “The D’Amelio Show,” Charli shared a bad experience she had in therapy, where she talked to a therapist about her inability to struggle with fame and the criticism that comes with it. In the end, her therapist was unable to understand the depth of her problems due to the fact that his daughter was a fan of Charlie’s social media personality.
“I think it’s weird to bring up that I should not be upset and I should not be upset because your daughter is a fan and she should make me happy,” she admitted in the show. “I appreciate your daughter, but she will not help with a chemical imbalance in my brain.”

Charli is not the only D’Amelio who breaks down about the constant backlash and hatred she receives online daily.
Dixie has also been very open about how she has been able to handle the pressure that she should always look perfect.
When the 19-year-old received countless hateful comments directed at her appearance after a photo of herself leaving the gym after a workout surfaced online, she cried to her parents.
“This just makes me feel like I don’t deserve anything,” she admitted. “I’m trying to do everything I can to improve myself, and it’s just getting worse.”
Although she did not want to confirm another season of “The D’Amelio Show”, it looked like the family was preparing to shoot something in France … something they could not talk about!
“D’Amelio Show” is an eight-part series available on Hulu.
