When the first episode of “Celebrity Wife Swap” airs on Tuesday (Jan. 3), Carnie Wilson will trade places with “Growing Pains” alumna Tracey Gold — and despite concerns about exposing her family to “Hollywood weirdness,” the former Wilson Phillips singer says the experience was “cathartic.”
She also tells FOX News that she’s still battling weight control issues.
“I’ve had so much stress in the last year so it’s really struggle,” she says. “I never hide, when I walk down the street, someone’s going to take my picture, that’s what I look like. It’s usually a sh**ty picture. I’m definitely up in weight. I’m looking forward to getting an exercise routine again. It’s like a daily decision. Am I going to eat healthy today or am I going to make some sh**ty decisions?”
Wilson adds she thinks she’s addicted to food and suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder that makes her prone to addictive behavior.
“I’ve really struggled since I’ve become sober,” says Wilson. “How do I balance that? How can I relax and not overeat? Because I have a lot of pressure in my life. I’m a working mother. I have a two year old and a six year old. You try to pay the bills, you try to keep your life going and there’s pressure.”
