"GOING ON A DIET" IS NOT "BATTLING ANOREXIA"

Is there no end to Ashlee Simpson's desperate attempts to jump on every bandwagon going? Now she's confusing an inappropriate diet with battling annorexia. Anorexia is a serious condition that can take years to overcome and screw your body permanently, if it doesn't kill you; what Simpson says is when she was eleven she had "six months of not eating very much at all" until her parents took her in hand. We're sure, Ashlee, the people who actually suffer from anorexia won't mind that you're trivialising their illness by claiming that you had some sort of miracle cure when Joe said "if you don't eat your mashed potatoes, you won't get no tits for me to market."
