Summertime is upon us, and these Hollywood starlets have clearly spent way too much time getting ready for bathing suit season. Are you ready for June’s Scary Skinny List? As you know, I’m not trying to be snarky here. I’m just stating the obvious since no one else seems to want to: These gals are horribly, painfully, scarily skinny.
When I saw this picture of Rachel Zoe recently, I literally gasped out loud. Apparently, this fashion-frenzied mom is building an empire while trying to become the first see-through human. She can put on every boho chic outfit out there, but no amount of layering will cover the fact that she is appallingly skeletal. What I wonder is this: Why aren’t the people around her, including her husband, telling her the truth, that thin might be in but emaciated is not?
This photo, like Zoe’s, was also taken at the annual Met Costume Gala last month. The invitation must have included the word “gaunt” as the dress code. Maybe I’m out of the loop, but starving off all of your curves and looking like a prepubescent boy is not sexy -- or healthy for that heart beating inside your chest. What is it about Mary-Kate’s lifelong role in the public eye (even though I can’t even remember, other than Weeds years ago), the last time she acted in something notable) that forces her to keep her body so tiny?
Giullana. Oh Giuliana. I’m going to be as gentle as I can, because this is a woman who has suffered the unimaginable pain of infertility and breast cancer in the past year. Plus, she’s now a Chicagoan like me. So we’re practically related. As her almost family, I have no choice but to say it: Giulana needs to go to that new restaurant of hers, RPM Italian, and eat. A lot. I don’t know when we convinced ourselves that zero-percent body fat was attractive. It's not attractive, it's sad. And scary. Giuliana, if you want to bond with the other mamas around here when that baby arrives this summer, it's time to pack on a few much-needed pounds.
Ok, so the pic is a few months old, but it’s not liked she’s pounded some Big Macs since it was taken at the 2012 Oscars. Is this yet another Angelina Jolie publicity stunt, or is she intentionally trying to do a disappearing act by starving herself into a bag of bones? Let’s be honest, folks: There is no way you can eat a healthy amount of food each day and look like this. Imagine how confused the poverty stricken in Africa become when their good will ambassador shows up weighing less than they do. Angelina, before you try to save the world, please save yourself. Brad and the kids will thank you for it.
