In a preview for the upcoming show, Abraham is seen tearfully opening up to Dr. Drew Pinsky about the abuse she says happened to her when she was a child.

Abraham has, in the past, accused her divorced parents, Debra Danielson and Michael Abraham, of beating her with a belt when she was young, though her parents claim there's more to the story than that.

Regardless, Abraham became emotional when she discussed her past, and the way it's affected her relationship with her parents now, as an adult.

"It's so sad," she tells Pinsky in the newly released clip. "I don't really feel like people should have to go through with that."

Pinsky replies, "Well, but you've been there," to which Abraham says, "That's part of life."

"Well, stop it. Stop dismissing it," Pinsky tells Abraham, who is mom to Sofia. "It is sad. It’s sad to have been hurt as a child, right? Super sad."

Abraham nods as she clearly tries to hold back tears.

Despite her claims about her parents' mistreatment, Abraham has said in past interviews that she's moved on and forgiven them.

"My family and I have such a different dynamic now," Abraham said last year on Brandi Glanville's podcast. "We’ve talked through a lot of our abuse. Not everyone’s a perfect parent, but we do learn and we grow from that. I’m not trying to be harsh on my family, because it does make them sad to think back about how they used to be and some of their choices."
