Tallulah Talks About Her Eating Disorder

Twenty-year-old Tallulah Willis, youngest daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, gets really candid in a new video for the personal style site Stylelikeu, opening up about her eating disorder, body dysmorphia. “I’m diagnosed with body dysmorphia [from] reading those stupid fucking tabloids when I was like 13, feeling like I was just ugly, always,” she said. “I believed the strangers more than the people who loved me, because why would the people who loved me be honest? It was just a conviction.” Because she read on the Internet that people though her face was ugly, Tallulah reacted by dressing to show off her butt and her boobs; she then went in the other direction, losing a lot of weight and her curves. Only in the past year or so, Tallulah said, has she realized that her feelings about her body are only her own mindset. It’s really refreshing how little shame or embarrassment she has talking about this; Tallulah comes off as really thoughtful and intelligent. As someone who has had friends with body dysmorphia, I appreciate her speaking publicly and honestly about the illness and how it has been a long road to recovery for her. “It’s crazy to like yourself and not just like the way you look — to like YOURSELF,” she said.  Damn straight.

Ke$ha Announces She Is Seeking Treatment For An Eating Disorder

“I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice. I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder … to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am.”

In an exclusive interview with TMZ, pop star Ke$ha announced that she would be entering a facility to deal with an eating disorder. While her music is not really my thing — that song “Timber” is impossibly catchy, though — Ke$ha has always struck me as a genuine, authentic weirdo and I applaud her bravery in seeking treatment and being so open about it. Get well soon, girl. [TMZ[Photo: Fame/Flynet]

carre otis comes clean

In the ’80s and early ’90s, Carré Otis was one of the hottest models around. She was regularly cast in shoots with the other supermodels of the day, and she dated a bunch of celebs, including Mickey Rourke (the pair were married for six years and divorced in 1998). But for all the glamour, there was also a dark side to Carré’s life. In her 2011 memoir, Beauty Disrupted [Randomly co-authored by notorious "male feminist" Hugo Schwyzer, P.S. -- Amelia], she recounted how, when she was just 17, her manager and the boss of Elite models in Paris Gérald Marie raped her. Then there was drug abuse, an eating disorder, and an accidental shooting. All the while, Otis was starring in campaigns for brands like Guess and Calvin Klein.

Now 44 and married, with two kids, Otis is finally able to look back on those years and come clean. In a column in Australia’s Sydney Herald, Otis revisited some of the fan letters she received in the throes of her success. While many of the letters were from pervy guys jerking off to her photos, she says the ones that most upset her were the letters from young girls who wanted to know how they could grow up to be just like her. Otis recently revisited those letters and responded today as she would have liked to back then. One letter-writer asks, “I’m 10. What is your workout routine and what do you eat? I wish I had your body. What’s it like to look like that? I would die to look like you.” To which Otis responded:

Taboo Addictions: 5 Adult Eating Disorders That Go Beyond Anorexia & Bulimia

Eating disorders are often times associated with specific races, age groups, and even career choices…think white teenage actress/models. But the truth is that eating disorders do not discriminate. According to the National Eating Disorder Association, 10 million American women suffer from eating disorders. This is not a Black v. White epidemic, and it certainly does not only apply to those experiencing puberty. When the University of North Carolina’s Eating Disorders Program was initially designed in 2003 they expected most of their patients to be adolescents, however today they report that 50 percent of their patients are over 30-years-old. Read more on Hello Beautiful…

Eddie Murphy’s genetically gifted daughter Bria Murphy is now a model and recently revealed some  … questionable … eating habits of her peers. Said Murphy in an interview:

“I’ve heard of people eating the cotton balls with the orange juice … they dip it in the orange juice and then they eat the cotton balls to help them feel full, because the cotton’s not doing anything.  It’s just dissolving.  And it makes you think you’re full, but you’re not.” Keep reading »
