CLARE Crawley has revealed she was sexually abused by a priest in Catholic school.
The 40-year-old Bachelorette star said the trauma led to her getting breast implants.
Clare opened up about her ordeal during Thursday's episode of Red Table Talk: The Estefans.
"I grew up going to a Catholic school and I was the victim of a predator," she said.
"My parents looked at Catholic priests as – they held them on a pedestal."
When Lili Estefan pointed out the importance of Catholicism in Clare's Mexican heritage, the reality star agreed: "It is very deep in our roots."
She looked emotional as she went on: "Our school treated him as a counselor.
"My parents did the best they could, reached out for the resources they could at the time, and sent me to this priest."
"And I don't think there is any counseling that was done. It was a one on one time to be a predator."
Back in July, Clare revealed she was sexually abused as a child and that she should have had therapy to "heal" her "wounded heart".

She wrote on Instagram: "Self-love is the act of giving a voice to your truth. So here is mine.
"As a child of sexual abuse, my young adult years were spent in unhealthy relationships feeling unworthy of the good ones," she revealed.
"It was a vicious cycle because the more I chose the wrong men who treated me poorly, the more I believed I wasn’t good enough.
Clare continued: "Enter the breast implants. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to get them, but the truth is it was money that would have been better spent on therapy to heal my wounded heart.
"I ended up spending the money on therapy anyway, cut to now. A woman who has learned to love herself deeply on the inside knows her worth, and will fight for herself no matter what."
As a result, the California native said she was determined to get rid of her "toxic" implants.
Meanwhile, earlier this week Clare and her fiance Dale Moss split "for good" for a second time.
SPLIT WITH DALE
Sources revealed to Page Six on Monday that Clare, 40, and Dale, 33, have split again, with insiders saying there is no chance of a reconciliation.
The informant revealed: “Dale and Clare have split again. This time it’s for good. It didn’t end well.”
The news comes after Dale was spotted out and about without Clare in recent weeks.
The couple became engaged in November 2020 during the sixteenth season of The Bachelorette.
Clare famously quit the show when she quickly fell in love with the former football player just weeks into filming.
