VANDERPUMP Rules star Dayna Kathan admitted she was “suicidal” last year.
She added she “thought it was the end” before she quit the show.
Dayna shared a post on Instagram with three pictures from 2020.
She captioned the post: “For world mental health day I want to share a few photos from last year. During this time I was overwhelmed, anxious and suicidal.
“Don’t compare yourself to the highlight reel you see on this app. These moments were the beginning of what I thought was the end.
“I’m grateful to have gotten help and to be here today, please know if you are struggling you are not alone.
“The first small step towards getting better can change your whole life.
“If you or someone you know is struggling- suicide prevention hotline: 1.800.273.8255.”
In April, Dayna revealed she QUIT the show after Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder and Kirsten Doute were all fired amid cast shake-up.
The star confirmed the news she would not be coming back for season nine in an Instagram message to a fan.
Dayna shared: “I’m not returning but excited to see next szn! The pod will be back soon, you’re amazing, thank you!!”
Dayna first appeared in season seven before joining as a full-time cast member in 2019.
Before quitting, Dayna briefly dated her costar and Tom Tom manager, Max Boyens, who was also fired from the series.
Last Halloween, fans attacked Dayna and called her “disrespectful” for dressing up as a “sexy” Ruth Bader Ginsberg for Halloween.
Followers said her costume complete with black lace lingerie and fishnet stockings was in “poor taste.”
Dayna captioned her Halloween look: “‘My mother told me to be a lady. and for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.’ -notorious RBG.”
The Sur waitress and stand-up comedian posed as the last Supreme Court Justice in a black lacy sleeveless lingerie bodysuit with a plunging neckline.
She wore a white color around her neck, black hoop earrings and slicked her hair back in a sleek do.
Dayna also donned black fishnet stockings and gloves along with stiletto heels to complete the provocative ensemble.
Dayna received backlash for her Halloween costume with followers commenting: “If 2020 wasn’t bad enough we’re now sexualizing RBG.”
Others wrote: “Such poor taste.”
Another added: “So much, just all the cringe.”
Other social media users said: “This is so disrespectful yikes.”
