"Sometimes it’s been to the detriment of my own career or in my own relationships, but I just feel like it’s really important as a woman to have self-worth and self-respect."
She added: “I’ve always tried to maintain that in anything that I do in life, generally. More so as a mother because I feel like I’m a role model and I have to set an example.
"The bad times are always followed by good times and that’s what I always look forward to."
“I think you just ride the wave of the bad times knowing that eventually you will get to a good place.”
Denise announced that she had split from Eddie in January of this year.
Taking to Instagram, she wrote: "Over the past couple of months, there has been much speculation regarding my relationship with Eddie.
"It saddens me to confirm that we are no longer a couple. I had to make the difficult decision not to continue in our relationship. I will always treasure the good times we spent together, and the memories made.
"We ask that you please respect our privacy at this time, especially for our children."
