Nicole Richie thinks she’s too thin

Superficial / May 3, 2006

nrichie-vanity-fair.jpgIn her recent interview with Vanity Fair, Nicole Richie admits she has a weight problem but says it’s not because of an eating disorder. She says:

“I know I’m too thin right now, so I wouldn’t want any young girl looking at me and saying, ‘That’s what I want to look like.'” But she insists her weight problems are not connected to an alleged eating disorder, and she’s doing whatever she can to take control of her health. She adds, “I started seeing a nutritionist and a doctor… I do recognise that I have a problem, and I want to be responsible and fix it, and I’m on that path right now.” But even her doctors aren’t convinced the star isn’t anorexic. In the upcoming Vanity Fair article, one of her medics, Jeffrey Wilkins says, “If it’s not anorexia, she should be able to gain the weight. If it ends up being anorexia we can help her with that.”

The only people that need to see doctors to gain weight are people who’ve been trapped in caves for two weeks and cancer patients. Everybody else usually just puts food in their mouth and the rest works itself out. Unless their name is Rosie O’Donnell. In which case, replace “food” with animals, small children, and anything else she can reach without having to get up off the sofa.
