Camila Mendes is a survivor.
The Riverdale star graced the October issue of Women’s Health where she came forward as a survivor of sexual assault.
Mendes revealed that she was slipped a date rape drug known as a “roofie” while she was a freshman at New York’s University Tisch School of the Arts.
Mendes became visibly emotional while recalling the attack, but she didn’t disclose any details about her attacker or what happened.
This isn’t the first Riverdale star to speak up about sexual assault and harassment.
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Mendes’ co-star, Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper on the hit series) took to Tumblr to reveal that a “significantly older” male co-worker tried to force himself on her while they were on a date.
She was a teenager at the time.
During the interview, Mendes also dished about how moving frequently before the age of 18 was a traumatic experience for her growing up.
She said she moves almost 12 times due to her parents’ divorce and her dad’s career.
“You’re constantly saying goodbye to people, and you’re constantly being removed from your identity. When you start to feel like you’re connecting with a group of people, an environment, and a home — a physical home— it can be destabilizing when you’re uprooted and taken somewhere else,” she said.
Nowadays, Mendes loves to follow a routine that includes staying at the same hotels when she travels, visiting familiar cafes and yoga studios.
She also opened up about living with an eating disorder.

Kiley last showed off her bloomin’ baby bump on March 10 writing, “Nothing says thrill like having a baby during a pandemic.”
The couple had a baby shower on March 6th just days before many states began imposing “stay at home” orders.
David has long been a part of the franchise having previously starred on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals as Alaric Saltzman, vampire-hunter turned dad of two supernatural twins and headmaster of the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted.
It’s safe to say, he has tons of experience with rowdy children who tend to get into a lot of trouble!

The CW has been working tirelessly to provide its quarantined audience with an ample amount of content despite many shows in limbo due to shuttered productions and unfulfilled episode orders and seasons.

When Will ‘Riverdale’ Air Hedwig Musical Episode?
Coronavirus is effecting the upcoming schedule on The CW.
And Riverdale fans might not be pleased because the musical episode has been postponed as the series goes on an indefinite hiatus.
The teen drama has been on a break since March 11 and was set to return with a musical episode focusing on Hedwig and the Angry Inch on April 8.
Unfortunately, that’s not happening. The musical episode is being moved to April 15 instead!
A schedule update for the first week of April (April 6th) reveals that the network will air a re-rerun of its DC’s crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths” instead of the episode “Wicked Little Town.”
The 5-part crossover which brought together The CW’s biggest superheroes into one 5-hours episode in 2019 and the beginning of 2020 is filling a few voids in the schedule including Sunday’s time-block of Supergirl and Batwoman. It’s also stepping in to fill Thursday’s time slot, which usually went to Legacies. The series is set to air a premature season finale on March 26 after production shuttered due to the outbreak and they couldn’t finish filming the season.
Riverdale was forced to shutter production this season after a member of the crew tested positive for coronavirus. All shows followed suit shortly after.
Check out the CW’s new revised schedule and keep your eyes peeled for updates as many networks will be making changes !
