If you can't go to the grocery store without reading about your sex life or waist size, you need a solid support system. When times get tough, Jessica has learned to lean on close family and friends. "I have an incredible family. They are my backbone," she says. "And then I have my best friends that I surround myself with."

Jessica says she also relies on self-help books and self-discovery. "I just try to journal and try to discover how I can fight this on my own, as well," she says.

After relentless, negative press nearly broke her down, Jessica decided to take matters in her own hands. Disparaging remarks about her physical appearance sparked the idea for her new VH1 reality series, The Price of Beauty.
