Since rising to fame on TikTok, sister duo Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have become household names. Throughout their time in the spotlight, the Connecticut natives have gotten candid about what it’s really like to live with their lives broadcasted to millions of followers.

Along with the positive parts to fame — like their Social Tourist clothing line, “2 Chix” podcast, reality show and makeup line with Morphe — the girls have also seen the dark side of being in the public eye.

“I used to definitely show my emotions a lot more, but I realized the more you show it, the more people kind of try and get those reactions out of you,” Charli said during an August 2021 interview with Paper magazine. “It takes time to really understand your own feelings. I’m also still a teenager, so I think I’m learning who I am and how to deal with … anything.”

When it comes to dealing with anything that comes her way, Charli has proved that she has pretty thick skin. Both she and Dixie have spoken about all the hate they receive online since becoming notable names in Hollywood.

In fact, their whirlwind rise to fame will be showcased on the family’s Hulu series The D’Amelio Show, which premieres in September 2021.

“It’s our everyday lives, our true emotions and feelings and just following our lives and our story,” Dixie told Variety during an August 2021 interview. “You can see our whole mental health journey from being thrown into this new lifestyle and not knowing how to deal with it, not knowing how to deal with hate or mass amounts of attention and our growth, Charli and I’s growth with each other and our mental health. That’s always scary putting that out there and getting people’s opinion, or even hate on mental health.”

All in all, Charli told Teen Vogue in February 2021 that while fame does come with its “ups and downs,” she’s happy that the entire family is experiencing the same things.

“I’m just so thankful to have them be such supportive parents when this is something so new to me, but also so new to them,” the internet personality explained. “And it’s been difficult, definitely, but just so thankful to have them and we all are here together at the end of the day.”
