Isabelle Caro, French Model With Anorexia, Dies At 28

Isabelle Caro, a French model who literally became the poster girl for anorexia, passed away last month at age 28. Her acting coach confirmed the model died on November 17, although Caro’s specific cause of death is unclear. Isabelle’s skeletal body appeared on Milanese billboards in 2007 under the words “No Anorexia” as a warning to the modeling industry about eating disorders (warning: the image is rather gruesome). She also talked with Jessica Simpson about her illness on the pop star’s reality show, “The Price of Beauty,” last year. Isabelle reportedly struggled with anorexia from age 13 and wanted to educate, even scare others, from falling down the same rabbit hole as she did. Her death is terrible news, but sadly unsurprising given the way anorexia ravaged her body. Rest in peace, Isabelle Caro. [People] Keep reading »

Today In Terribleness: Death By Neck Massage?

Electronic neck massagers are the perfect way to end a long day of holiday shopping and gift wrapping, right? Uh, maybe not. A 37-year-old Florida woman, Michelle Ferrari-Gegerson, was found dead on her bedroom floor on Christmas Eve after her electronic massager wrapped around her necklace and strangled her to death. Authorities are not yet giving information about the make and model of the massager, but we should be expecting a recall any day now. I’m still not sure I understand how exactly that happened, but consider me terrified enough never to use an electronic neck massager ever again just in case it should decide to strangle me while I’m relaxing. Good lord, that’s an awful thought. [Palm Beach Post] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Brought His Mom To Our First Date”

I have been dating this 44-year-old guy — who still lives with his parents, I might add — since the middle of August. He is kind-hearted and has a good soul. On our first date he asked me to meet him at a mall I’d never been to, and it wasn’t even a halfway point between us. He brought his mother was with him because she needed to go to the mall for some things and she doesn’t drive. Anyway, in the four-and-a-half months I’ve been with this man, I’ve been doing all the driving down to his place because he claims he has a phobia about going to new places. Once I drive there, we go out and do things around where he lives at places he’s familiar with. He gives me gas money once in a while because I’m a single mom and can barely afford all the gas to drive the 20 miles each way to his place. I’ve told him that maybe he needs to speak to someone about his phobia. Also, once I’m at his parents’ place, he wants me to go up to his bedroom. I don’t know what to do other than to give him an ultimatum that I will not come down to his place until he decides to come to mine? — Designated Driver
