After opening up about her struggle with depression and loss of appetite, Olivia Culpo hit Miami’s Swim Week with her model friends where she was seen happily partying with model friends.
We hear the 27-year-old model dined at Mandrake on Thursday with fellow Sports Illustrated ladies Camille Kostek, Danielle Herrington, Halima Aden, Olivia Brower, Haley Kalil, Brooks Nader, Myla Dalbesio and Robin Holzken where the group “feasted … before starting an impromptu dance party in the middle of the restaurant.”
“Olivia was in great spirits,” an insider told Page Six. “She seemed happy dancing with the girls.”
We’re told she sipped on a cocktail while enjoying shrimp and enoki Pad Thai, butter lettuce salad, and Alaskan king crab and ink noodles topped with real gold flakes.
Culpo then continued to make the rounds in Miami, turning up at W South Beach’s Peroli Beach Bash wearing a sexy black one-piece under a Versace cover-up and dangerously high heels.
The former Miss Universe recently revealed that while her social media portrayed her life as glamorous and happy, she was actually suffering from depression and weight loss a few months ago.
“I was depressed. I had no appetite, was drinking way too much, smoking, couldn’t sleep, and couldn’t eat,” she posted on Thursday. “But I was still taking photos on social media and pretending everything was great. I was going through a difficult situation that left me mentally, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt and it had taken its toll physically.”
Luckily, Culpo is finding her way back to a healthy place, saying, “I am looking healthier. I have my appetite back and am treating my body correctly.”
