Chelsea Settles Previews Her New MTV Docu-Series (VIDEO)

MTV's latest docu-series 'Chelsea Settles' follows the journey of its namesake, a Pittsburgh native with a weight problem who's trying to break into LA's glitzy fashion industry.

Settles stopped by 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) in advance of the premiere and talked about the show and her personal journey. When they started filming, she weighed 324 pounds, but now, as Wendy said, she's looking "sexy."

Settles talked about how she joined the show. "I was browsing MTV's website, and there was a casting call, they were looking for an overweight girl, and I wrote an email ... My grandma told me I was wasting my time ... but then I got on!" she beamed.

She also reflected on her weight loss. "I've been fixated on a scale and a number, and now it's just about being healthy and feeling confident."

'Chelsea Settles' premieres with a one-hour special Tue., Oct. 11 at 11 PM on MTV. Check back at AOL TV later for an interview with Chelsea.
