Hollywood abounds with celebrities with weight problems. A few have the problem of being too heavy. In modern day Hollywood however it is the reverse. Many female stars are too skinny. In fact they are all but skin and bones. In fact quite a number of them have eating disorders. This includes actresses like Kate Bosworth, Mary Kate Olsen and Nicole Richie.
Nicole Richie, daughter of singer Lionel Richie, has voluntarily asked for help with her weight problem. She has checked into a treatment center to get help to gain weight. She has told Vanity Fair that she knows that she is to thin. She says she’s not happy with the way she looks.
In a statement, Spokeswoman Nicole Perna said, “She is working with a team of doctors and specialists whose focus is nutrition. It is important to Nicole that she achieves this goal in a healthy way as this is not a treatment for an eating disorder.”
At 25 years of age, Nicole has changed quite a bit from the girl who first appeared on “The Simple Life” with Paris Hilton. She lost a lot of weight really fast, more than is healthy for most. She said that part of the reason was the stress she experienced over the break-up with her fiance. She does insist that she does not have an eating disorder, no matter how it may seem otherwise.
Hopefully with medical assistance, she will soon be in perfect health and form. It’ll be great to see her in better shape.
