Heidi N Closet nearly called it quits on All Stars
We are all huge fans of the one and only Heidi N Closet. Sadly, she was struggling during the early episodes of the latest season of All Stars. Fans saw her open up about wanting to leave the show. Things got more complicated when Mrs. Kasha Davis was eliminated. Heidi told Entertainment Weekly that she was brokenhearted when Kasha got eliminated, having grown really close to her. She was concerned about favoritism and whether it was worth it to continue with the season. Thankfully, she pulled through. We love you, Heidi!
