Richie Sick Of Eating Disorder Claims

THE SIMPLE LIFE star NICOLE RICHIE has blasted rumours she is suffering an eating disorder, claiming she is naturally skinny and her shortness makes her look even thinner.

Many US tabloids have questioned the 24-year-old's health since she was photographed looking frail and gaunt. But the adopted daughter of crooner LIONEL RICHIE says there's nothing wrong and she is sick of being stopped in the street by well-wishers.

She says, "I wouldn't want anyone to think that I think that it's OK to have an eating disorder. Obviously it's not.

"I'm a little sick of it. I think when you see me in person, you see that I'm, like, five foot one - I'm a small person.

"When I was heavier, everyone said I was too heavy. You can't win in the public eye and I find it really hard. So I ignore it now, I really do.

"The only time it bothered me was when I was in a store trying on shoes and these girls came up to me - they were probably like 13 or 14 - and their mother came over, and she was like, 'Are you taking care of yourself, because my girls think that you're not.' That was upsetting.

"I was never a size 12. I'm so little that I could put on 10 or 15 pounds and it just looks like a lot."

As a father of a 5 year old daughter it sickens me to see the size 0 or size 2 bodies on these "celebrities". What kind of role models for our young women does this provide?? It's attractive to be skin and bones? These women look like they belong in third world countries. They do not have a women's body they have a skinny childs body. Some children are more developed then these women. It gives me the chills to see them and their protruding bones and they think its attractive! Someone needs to tell them they look terrible. Nicole Richie you look scary and terrible!! Your not the only one by far. Look at Angelina Jolie...what are you people in Hollywood thinking??? Bring back the Marilyn Monroes. A beautiful woman with a woman's body.
