Supermodel Gisele blames families for anorexia

I never suffered from this problem (anorexia) because I had a very strong family base. Parents are responsible, not the fashion industry. Reuters quoting “O Globo” article

Wow… Okay. I’m’a calm down a second.

Gisele. You are gorgeous. A personal favorite. You seem well balanced. And I’m glad you have a nice family that supports you and gives you strength. I only admire your success.

I dated a $4,000 a day model. Not your tier but close. I saw her in Calvin Klein ads in the pages of “Vogue.” She told me one quiet night—when it seemed I might prove competition to the wealthy, abusive boyfriend who was about to fly her to Europe on the Concord—that her manager used to make her stand naked in front of a full length mirror and tell her how fat she was.

Gisele, you dizzy cunt. Leave it the fuck alone. The industry is poisonous and enough young women have maimed themselves and died for the illusion that it’s normal or even desirable. If you don’t see that, you’ve just been lucky. Be responsible with your fortune and your beauty.
