Calling Paloma Picasso--Please.

Donatella Versace and daughter, Allegra
Does my osteo make me look fat?
I'm the last person who should be pointing fingers about Allegra Versace's appearance. This 20 year old Brown University student, who is also the daughter of Donatella Versace, is publicly struggling with anorexia.
I'm full of mixed emotions when I see this young woman. It's a cross between, "Honey. I KNOW." and "Jesus H. Christ. Get some help or you are going to die." I believe she knows how sick she is. It would all be so easy to say, "Well, YOU try growing up in that world of size minus zero models, a weird mom and endure the loss of a beloved uncle (Gianni Versace) who was brutally murdered." I'm sure it's not as simple as that. Sometimes it's more than a "control" issue--especially when it's this extreme.
Donatella reported to People magazine that:
"She is receiving the best medical care possible to help overcome this illness and is responding well.
Is walking the red carpet with Mom part of the "best medical care"? "Dahleeeeeng. Have a proteeeein shake."
Donatella, take good care of your daughter. The thing is, though, it needs to come from within Allegra that she WANTS to get healthy. No one can do it for her.

Oh sweetie; those sleeveless dresses are so NOT the thing to be wearing. Hope you get the help you need.

We need more Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce type role models. I blame all those homosexual fashion designers who choose models who look like pre-pubescent boys. Why do clothes look better on them? Because we're told they do. Ask a man - he'd much rather be grabbing Jessica Biel's behind than Nicky Hilton's boney arse.
You ever go on 'The skinny Website'?
