Since when did Ashlee Simpson have an eating disorder?
Forgive me for being mean about it, but I AM SO SICK OF CELEBRITIES ADMITTING TO EATING DISORDERS. If you're doing it to help other people overcome theirs, that's one thing, but when they talk about it like it's for publicity... UGH. Honestly, the ONLY eating disordered celebrity I have any respect left for is Mary-Kate, because she got help and didn't use it to boost her public image. I hate it when all of these people suddenly -- and only AFTER recovering -- claim they had an ED.

I think I remember reading about that once and she was all "oh once when I was 12 I thought I was fat and I stopped eating for 2 weeks but thank goodness my family told me how pretty I was and I was ok"
That's not an eating disorder. Gah.

see that's where I've been going wrong. I always thought that the magic cure to eating disorders was eating sandwiches. Silly me.
And fries, don't forget the fries. Or else you'll become anorexic.

PHEW! I'm glad you added that in, I almost went ana. ha ha ha
No she was dancing and then felt home sick and fat AND THEN STOPPED EATING. and then her parents took her home and took her for help and she ate. AND then her dad commented on Jessica's perfect DD BOOBS.
God, get it right! Hahahaha. Horray for mindless television shows.
They're all like "oh I had one too"
it's like, "no you just stopped eating so you could fit into your herve leger gown for the awards show" because it's so funny how they all just miraculously "get better" all of a sudden
I *HATE* ashlee simpson.
*runs over with truck while cackling*
This is so a pet hate of mines too. Like Kelly Clarkson went through a few "months of bulimia".. and Paula Abdul "used to be" bulimiac. But everyones all magically better now. I don't buy it. Even though I am trying to recover, I'd never claim it had entirely gone away, it never will.
i think paula abdul really struggled with it for a long time and she's clearly far from being normal or stable
kelly clarkson pisses me off though
that's what i was thinking. lmao regardless of whether or not she has an eating disorder, i think one episode of "Dear Paula" (or whatever it's called) on Bravo will tell you she's clearly fucked. ;)
celebrities always seem to just get magically better in like a week
I know, and it seems like they would have a much harder time, what with all the media attention and scrutinization
Seriously. I've been struggling with this for three years and even THAT is nothing compared to a lot of people. I love how these celebrities are "sick" for 3 months and then overcome it in one night. They just make a decision and that is that...
she was kindof a serious ballerina when she was younger, pre-fame, and that's when it apparently happened. for like a month or something.
"for like a month or something."
that is where I have the problem D=<
Shit like this irks me as well. i never read about it, i just get frustrated.
blah. i'm having a shitty week, forgive me for what i'm about to say.
yeah, that crap bothers the shit out of me. I hate reading articles about their life-changing revelations that "woke them up" into "recovering" after their 6-month spell with ("chronic" hah) anorexia or bulimia. They either had it and are in hiding now or never had it to begin with. and just because you restricted to fit into a bikini one season or threw up a couple times (in your life), does not mean you have an eating disorder.
call me a freakin' pessimist (I'm sorry, I really am), but I'm beginning to honestly question the whole "recovering" from an eating disorder in the first place. I don't know not a one person who truly has. Yeah, you find a way to live, possibly "healthy", but won't it always haunt you over your shoulder until the day you die? You just find a way to live hand-in-hand with it not dominating every single second of your life. That's just my experience anyway. I apologize to those really trying. . . don't mean to be a downer or rain on your parade. :( Don't listen to me if you are. YOU CAN DO IT and all that other crap. ok, sorry, i'll shut up. *pops an Orbit and stuffs a sock in her dirty mouth*
Re: blah. i'm having a shitty week, forgive me for what i'm about to say.
lmao i know, i know. . . shouldn't have said it but i just couldn't help myself.
I, um, went to a reunion for the residental place I was treatment at a few years ago (I'm sure y'all know which place i'm talking about so I need not go any further) and it was basically all the same unanimous theme. everybody still struggling, some just more than others. some are at that place in limbo where they live uncomfortably with their ED, but it ain't like it's gone very far . . . just slipped stage-right out of that ever-constant shadow that follows you around everywhere you go. Most are healthier now, but it's like the mind-set is still there, just not as strong. It's almost like an alcoholic white-knuckling it. "GODDAMMIT IT, I WANT TO!" (but i can't.) I guess even if it's not 100% "recovery", lord knows it's gotta be a better life than it controlling absolutely everything. (<--see! i can be positive! ;D)
hah I watched that Lifetime movie "Hunger Point" last week and about fell over. it was just so funny i couldn't help it. I mean, I wish I could shove 4 cookies in my mouth, walk to the bathroom, puke in 10 seconds with a little *cough cough* and come out ready to fight the world. Hell yeah! :D
Re: blah. i'm having a shitty week, forgive me for what i'm about to say.
A-fucking-men.....I know it sounds totally dark and defeatist, but I'm starting to believe real recovery doesn't exist. I DO believe that people get better, but I don't buy that people just get over it, like it's a fucking rash or something, OMG, I'm breaking out in bulimia again, where's the anti-puke cream!?
OMG, I'm breaking out in bulimia again, where's the anti-puke cream!?
What about that Kelly Clarkson bullshit.
Can she GET anymore annoying?
And shit, if Ashlee is balls enough to get her nose chopped like MJ, bitch can sure as hell get the fat sucked out her ass.
i'm not going to say whether or not mary kate has an ed, but i really don't think that's what her stay in rehab was for.
ahem*cokewhore* excuse me.
hmm...reminds me of an article where Fergie said she told everyone she was bulimic to cover her meth addiction :/
And it comes and goes in spurts.
4 will say they did, and then it'll be okay.. then another couple. it's annoying.
I have respect for Brittany Snow as well as Mary-Kate.
That's about it.
The others are shyt.
I don't know who Brittany Snow is but I agree about Mary-Kate. She didn't wave it around in everyone's face and looks like she's still struggling every so often. Or not. I don't know much about her, really.
& Allegra Versace. I have absolutely no doubt that she suffered from anorexia nervosa.
I don't think mary kate was anything but ashamed and embarrassed about her ed like any of us are. Of course she doesn't want to talk about it, WE don't want to talk about it. And she's still sick, IMO
I do think she's still sick, too, and maybe that's why she can't exactly talk about it like she's over it, but I think even if she HAD recovered she'd be as ashamed and embarrassed about it. That's why I don't buy the other celebs' stories. Even if you're over it, it's not that easy to talk about it so nonchalantly.
I do believe some celebs had/have eating disorders (obviously, anyone can, so some celebrities MUST HAVE had them) -- Paula Abdul, Princess Diana, Elton John, probably a majority of the Spice Girls... but it's typically the ones that don't talk about it to US Weekly. The way celebrities talk about it nowadays it's like they're reminiscing about a time in middle school when they made fun of their best friend to fit in with the popular crowd, like it was just a phase they grew out of when they matured a bit. Anyone who looks at EDs in that way, I don't trust.
