Now the real-life Nasty Gal founder, who was also an Executive Producer for the show, has spoken about what it feels like watching her story unfold on screen.
There was one moment in particular that the 33 year old says was uncomfortable to watch back.
"One part that really gets me is episode 13. We’ve just launched the website and we’re having the party," she told The Guardian.
