Bella Hadid is sharing some of her supermodel secrets.

On this week’s episode of Lifetime’s new series, Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid, the former Real Housewives star‘s daughter makes a special appearance — and PEOPLE has an exclusive sneak peek at the scene.

In the clip, Bella, 21, sits down with the show’s six aspiring models to find out how the competition has been going. When one of the contestants, Makenzie, reveals she struggles with social anxiety disorder, Bella opens up about her own experience with anxiety.

“Believe me, I get it and I understand it,” she admits. “I was totally there. My sister is very bubbly and very out there, and I was always very reserved. I would literally start crying and shaking if I had to do interviews at red carpet events. It was really nerve-racking and it’s scary, and it’s not only you.”

“It gets a lot better once you have to talk to people every day,” she adds. “Then you’re like, ‘Okay, I guess it’s my job, I have to do it!’ ”

Bella’s words are a source of comfort for Makenzie, who says the model feels like “a friend.”

“When Bella was telling us that she suffers from anxiety, I immediately felt a connection to her,” she says. “It just brought more hope. If she can do it, I hopefully can do it, too.”

On the new eight-episode series, Yolanda Hadid uses her own modeling background and expertise to put a group of young aspiring models and their moms through an intensive eight-week bootcamp to see who has what it takes to win a management contract with Hadid herself — and the potential to sign with IMG Models in New York.

Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid airs Thursdays (10 p.m. ET) on Lifetime.

Kate Middleton was as stylish as ever in a bright red coat from Boden worn over a custom-made peach dress during an official outing Wednesday, but she was missing one key accessory: her engagement ring.

The royal mom is rarely seen without her iconic sapphire and diamond engagement band, which once belonged to Princess Diana. But during a visit with young patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital on Wednesday morning, she was only wearing her simple gold wedding band.

Kate, who was on hand to open the hospital’s Mittal Children’s Medical Centre, which provides accommodation for young patients and their families, left her sparkler behind in adherence with the hospital’s policy on minimal jewelry.

Since she would have to cleanse her hands thoroughly before touring the hospital’s wards and treatment areas, it is recommended to remove jewelry before entering.

Her stunning engagement ring is a sight to behold, consisting of 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire set in 18-karat white gold. Her gold wedding band, however, which she usually wears along with her engagement ring, is much more simple.

The Welsh gold wedding ring is an 88-year-old royal tradition, dating back to Elizabeth Bowes Lyon and the future George VI. In 1923, the royal ring was fashioned from a gift of Clogau gold with enough left over for the weddings of the Queen in 1947 as well as those of the late Princess Margaret, Princess Anne and Princess Diana. And just before Kate’s royal wedding to Prince William, the palace announced that her wedding ring would also be made of Welsh gold.

Jessica Chastain was never enamored with the idea of marriage — until she met her match.

“I never wanted to get married,” the 40-year-old actress tells WSJ. Magazine in their February Talents & Legends issue.

That all changed, however, when Chastain met Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, a fashion executive from a noble Italian family. And although her beau knew tying the knot wasn’t important to her when their courtship began in 2012, they exchanged vows in Italy over the summer last year.

“When I first met my husband, he knew that marriage wasn’t something I was interested in. And then as we got to know each other, the idea of marriage shifted for me,” she explains. “There are some things worth celebrating — and he’s worth celebrating.”

Chastain continues, “I actually love being married. I never thought I would, but this is a spectacular human being, and I am celebrating that I get to share my life with him.”

Growing up, Chastain reveals she watched her own mother in difficult romantic relationships.

“My mom was a single mom; I don’t know who my biological father is, and I grew up in a household that was really financially unstable,” the Oscar nominee shares.

The Zero Dark Thirty star butted heads with some of the men who dated her mom, but she says they taught to her to stand up for herself.

“There was a turning point in my life where we were living with someone I didn’t like very much, a boyfriend of my mom’s,” she recalls. “And he did something — my room was messy or whatever and he had taken my clothes, and I was telling him to give me back my stuff — and he slapped me. And I just kicked him in the genitals, and he fell to the ground immediately. It was me, my sister and my brother — and I remember looking at my sister’s face, and we were both like, ‘Oh, my God, what did I just do?’ And then I ran out of the house. But I always look back on that moment as knowing that, okay, if anything happens to me, I’m capable of fighting back.”

“He never messed with me again,” the actress adds. “If you allow a bully to intimidate or victimize you, they’ll continue to do it. Bullies are actually weak; they don’t go after strong people.”

WSJ. Magazine‘s premiere Talents and Legends February Issue features dual cover stars Jessica Chastain and Michael B. Jordan.

Of the decision to feature these storytellers on Talents and Legends, Editor-in-Chief Kristina O’Neill says, “At a time when the entertainment industry is undergoing some much-needed soul searching, I can’t think of two actors who more brilliantly represent the future of Hollywood than Michael B. Jordan and Jessica Chastain—two talents who are well on their way to becoming legends.”

WSJ. Magazine’s February issue is available on newsstands Jan. 27.
