It all started when the 20-year-old sat down with People to discuss her family's upcoming reality series, The D'Amelio Show. But from the sounds of it? The documented Hulu adventure called for lots more than lip-syncing and dance challenges.

"I had a talk with my parents, and they were like, 'We want to follow this story if you're okay with that,'" Dixie recalled of documenting her struggles with anxiety. Sure enough, she felt the same as mom and dad – and perhaps with good reason. "I think it's important because it's hard to talk in a YouTube video or a TikTok about my mental health because it's just not everything – I could never show every part on like a short-form platform," she explained.

But in showing herself in a new light, she won't just be impacting viewers tuning in. "Being able to do this on the Hulu show has really shown every step of the way, and I've seen my personality change and how I am as a person," Dixie confessed. From a normal teen living in Connecticut to navigating life as an online superstar, D'Amelio's life has indeed taken her on one whirlwind of a ride. Of course, though, it hasn't been easy.

Just ask baby sis, Charli. "I feel like throughout this entire journey — it happened so fast — that we still have to figure out how we're supposed to do this," the 17-year-old star added. "There's no rulebook, there's no guidebook, so it's kind of us just trying to figure out where we stand and how we deal with this as family. I'm just really excited for everyone to see that perspective." And so are we. Be sure to tune in to their latest adventure when The D'Amelio Show debuts on September 3.

Until then, stay tuned.
