“It was probably one of the worst I’ve had in a while,” said the 24-year-old about the “painful” seizure.
Delilah Belle Hamlin is open about going through a health shock while filming the music video for her debut single.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the model revealed she suffered from a “painful” seizure while filming the music video for her new song Nothing Last Forever.
Delilah Hamlin speaks about autoimmune and chronic disease issues that “fight silently”.
“On the second day of shooting the music video, it was about nine hours a day and I was having seizures,” said Delilah, eldest daughter of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin. “We don’t really know much about her yet. Even though it’s been years, we’re still trying to figure it out. I had a fit on set.”
The 24-year-old described the seizure as “scary painful” and shared that “it was probably one of the worst I’ve had in a while, but I had everyone I loved around me.”
Delilah said her seizure ended up being “a beautiful thing,” and she “was able to bring the emotion from that into filming the next day.”
Looking back, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said she was “proud of me” for asserting herself after the scary incident.
“At the same time, I think I do this all the time. It’s so normal for me now. That I’m just like, ‘Okay, get up.’ When you’re not feeling well but need to get through the day,” she told ET, recalling what she learned about work ethic from her mom, Lisa.
“Lisa always taught me [that] if you die, if you vomit, if you throw up, make the day. go and do it Show up for work,” Delilah said. ‘So I’m trying. I always try my best. There are days when I really can’t, but I try my best.”
Back in January, Delilah spoke about the “silent battle” against autoimmune and chronic diseases — including Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr virus, encephalitis, and pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections (PANDAS).
“I haven’t really spoken out about my health lately and if you’re new here you’re probably confused, but for the past few years I’ve struggled with autoimmune/chronic disease issues which I’ve quietly battled and overcome. Delilah wrote alongside a photo of herself with an IV in her arm. “It was definitely tough mentally and physically. I kind of stayed silent because I don’t want to be cast in a ‘sick’ role.”
“I’ve experienced a lot, overcome a lot, and I know I’m going through this for a reason, and that reason is to share with you what I’ve been through and what I’ve learned,” she added.
Delilah has previously spoken about her mental and physical health struggles.
In December 2022, she got candid about her journey to sobriety, sharing that she had decided to get sober after suffering an accidental overdose in November 2021.
Speaking to Flaunt Magazine, Delilah recalled “feeling very helpless and hopeless” after she “started having seizures.”
She then explained the reasons behind her decision to keep “alcohol and other things” out of her life.
“My sobriety is something I’m very grateful for,” she said. “It was also really misunderstood. I haven’t really talked about why I got sober.
