Poor Rachel Zoe

Here's the thing...there have been a lot of rumblings in the blogging world about this particular photo that was recently taken of Rachel Zoe, telling her to eat a hamburger, to stop denying she has an eating disorder, etc. My particular favorite was the caption "Bananas. Eat some." There is no doubt she is undernourished, and I'd be shocked if she wasn't actually anorexic. All of that said, people need to be a little more sensitive. Eating disorders are diseases...they're a disease of the brain, and people tend to overlook those as not as important as diseases of the body, i.e. cancer, diabetes, heart failure, and so on. Her head is sick, and she deserves the same amount of sympathy that we give to others who are battling illnesses. My heart goes out to her.
