Elliana Walmsley rose to fame when she was very young because of Lifetime’s reality show Dance Moms. As a result, she became an influencer with many fans and followers at a young age.
As of 2022, she is 15 years old. However, because of her influence, she has been a role model to many people, especially young kids.
Along with fame, many started pondering Walmsley’s personal life. This especially surrounded her sexuality.
While she once had a boyfriend, people questioned if the reality TV star was bisexual. So, Walmsley took to Snapchat to answer the burning question.
Is Elliana Walmsley bisexual?
In July 2022, a person by the name of Layla asked Walmsley a question regarding her sexuality. They asked if she was bisexual, ensuring they were not making assumptions.
They wrote, “have you ever thought abt be bi? (not assuming your sexuality.”

Walmsley posted a selfie and answered the questions. She said she tried to be one during quarantine, possibly referring to the lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021.
She also wrote that her phase did not last long. Soon after Walmsley posted the Snapchat, it was covered by many Instagram and TikTok tea/drama pages.
Walmsley faced a lot of backlashes for her post. They said that the reality TV star was old enough to know about sexuality and how it should not be joked about.
A TikTok account by the name of @squadstearooms declared that they were “not even giving her the benefit of the doubt.”
They noted that even though she is 15, she is old enough to know about her actions. They pointed out that many people have difficulty coming to terms with their sexuality.
Walmsley, on the other hand, was “out here TRYING to be.” They ended their statement by saying that being a part of the LGBTQ+ was not a trend for the Dance Moms alum to try and follow.
This comment from @squadstearooms was reposted by many, including a tea page on Instagram named @gfstearoom. The latter noted that many were unhappy with Walmsley and her response to the question about her being bisexual.
