'Dancing With My Demons': Chloe Lattanzi's Next DWTS Performance Will Be Her Most Emotional Yet
Get the tissues, 'cos just like with Samuel Johnson's raw performance last year, there won't be a dry eye in the house as competitors explore "the most memorable year of their life" on this week's Dancing With The Stars.
She's always been open about her past struggles with depression, eating disorders and addiction, and now Chloe Lattanzi will bring her journey to life in an emotional performance that will also explore mum Olvia Newton-John's battle with cancer.
"This upcoming dance is very special to me," the 31-year-old told 10 daily over the phone, adding, "The dance is for me and my mum, and it will show me dancing with my demons and winning."
"It's all about making peace with your past, overcoming trauma and illness and coming out stronger -- and me and Mum, we went through it together and are now in the same place together".
Olivia was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, before battling it for the second time in 2012, and was again diagnosed again September 2018.
Meanwhile, Chloe was treated for addiction in 2013, and took an eight-month Instagram hiatus to reflect on herself, and now believes she's in a far better place.
"Everyone has a cancer," she said, adding: "Whether it's anxiety, addiction or depression, it's about taking it and not letting it rule your life, you're the one who is in control -- it may be there with you, but it's not a weight anymore," she explained.
As for 'Grease' star Olivia's reaction to her daughter's raw choice of performance?
"She sobbed in rehearsals!" Chloe laughed, adding: "She was blown away and I was blown away".
"It's very emotionally taxing, but it's beautiful because I get to really feel something. I love art so much because you get to channel intense emotions and let them out," she continued.
