Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's struggle with eating disorders was first brought up on season one of Jersey Shore when Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino brought her to tears after mocking her weight. Now, the reality star has opened up to OK! in an exclusive interview about her battle with anorexia and bulimia —only in this week's issue! — but she's not the first celeb to come forward and admit to struggling with an eating disorder.
A lot of people look to stars for their "thinsperation" but what more and more celebrities are coming out and saying is that this need to be thin is highly unhealthy and very dangerous.
The number of famous people who are admitting to their personal struggles with eating disorders has been on the rise and it is in their bravery and desire for a healthy body image that the public should find inspiration.
