Peaches Geldof Blasts 'Emaciated' Richie And Beckham

SIR BOB GELDOF's outspoken daughter PEACHES has slammed "emaciated" stars including NICOLE RICHIE and VICTORIA BECKHAM as the reason why so many girls have eating disorders.

The 16-year-old Brit reserves a particular dislike for California, where she feels the pressure to conform to a thin body shape is at its most acute.

Speaking on tonight's (01MAR06) UK TV show TEEN AMERICA, Peaches says, "I know girls with eating disorders. It's due to being bombarded with images of role models like emaciated Nicole and Victoria."

The reason girls get eating disorders is because no one teaches them that they DO NOT have ot prove themselves to boy and other girls that they are the best because the are the smallest No one teaches boy and men for that matter than women should be curvy or that every girl should not be a size 0 or 00.Parents need to teach and encourage their girls and boys that eating is healthy and u cant base your life off of someone ele'se especially an entertainer because they are only there to entertain. People really need to beac off celebrities about eating disorders its not like the people who "dis" them care about them anyway. They hate u when ur fat they hate u when ur thin. Why dont all thosae people volunteer there time at some charity and help boys and girls realize there the own person and theat it is ok to just be.

Nicole Richie does not have an eating disorder! She just has a small frame.. I don't believe Victoria Beckham does, either. People need to quit accusing them!
