Hollywood’s Naming and Shaming of Skinny Celebs


I find it ironic that it’s now so trendy to name and shame celebrities that are too skinny. Most likely they have body issues BECAUSE they’re in the spotlight. The same publications will mark a red arrow towards a female who has a bit of a belly in a bikini. You see where I’m going with this. These superstar females have reached all time undeniable low weights. Are they eating disorders? Are the celebs frail monsters as suggested? Every story is different and it’s not as dramatic as you might expect in most cases.

Bethanny Frankel


Bethanny Frankel, the 44-year-old Real Housewives of New York City is 5’7 and weighs about 115 pounds. This is considered underweight and the picture proves that she doesn’t look healthy. She’s always been skinny, which is why she named her company Skinnygirl. The thing is, her metabolism runs fast so if she is really busy (like a New Yorker tends to be) she loses weight.

Nutritionists have publicly judged her appearance which I personally think is none of their business. They have stated she weigh under a 100 pounds. This was never the case, according to Frankel. She eats but when she gets exhausted, the first manifestation is her weight. It’s as simple as that.
