Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Nikki discussed why she made the story public for the first time.

"It was hard to sleep [after the release] because I made a lot of headlines with stories that I had kept in for over 20 years. I was really nervous for it to come out. Even when we were writing it two and a half years ago, I was still unsure if I wanted to tell these stories of being raped because it had been so long and it was pain that I carried through and had to work on. You just don't know how people are going to perceive it but I knew overall, if I could help younger women, it was worth it. But it's still hard," she said.

Brie added, "Nicole carried a lot of shame and guilt, which I think a lot of women do in these situations. That's why she wanted to write it because I think a lot of women do, they blame themselves for thinking they put themselves in that situation, when it's not their fault at all. I tried to tell her, 'It was never you.'"

Nikki went on to say that many girls reached out to her following the story coming out with stories of their own.
