Kara DioGuardi recovered from binge eating disorder?
Kara DioGuardi, the American Idol judge, recently revealed she suffered from binge eating disorder, a condition that is finally being recognized by the DSM-IV as an “official” eating disorder (the press has coined it the “new” eating disorder, which is kind of comical if you think about it).
Anyway, while researching her story, the first link I found on Google led me to this cover shot.
Why does this just seem like a bad idea?
Maybe its because as a former eating disorder sufferer, posing like this seems, well, counter intuitive.
Perhaps I am bothered by the body revealing outfit surrounded by headlines like “EAT MORE, WEIGH LESS!”
Don’t get me wrong, I think it is great she was willing to discuss the topic and share her personal story. That’s always a good thing because it helps reveal the truth behind the smiles of Hollywood.
But, there is a right and wrong way to “promote” yourself through such a revelation — isnt’ there? Something more modest perhaps?
Plus, my gut is just telling me something is funky about this. I think it is the look on her face, it just doesn’t say “recovered” to me.
I know, I know — I could be totally bogus, that is why I am writing this so don’t hammer me for it, tell me your thoughts. 🙂
Am I way off base?
