Tori Spelling denies she has eating disorder

Tori Spelling has been sporting a super skinny frame as of late – thinner than usual. With the media consistently ranting about her weight and claiming she must be suffering from an eating disorder, Tori has decided it was time to set the record straight.

In her book ‘Unchartered TerriTORI’, Tori explains why her weight has dropped. The mother of two young children categorically denies being anorexic, USA Today writes, blaming her weight loss on stomach problems that saw her get hospitalized three times last year and take three bouts of antibiotics.

“I’ve never had a great stomach, but (being ill) just completely tore up my stomach and broke down my immune system, and I’ve basically just been a mess ever since, stomach-wise. It’s about rebuilding my immune system.”

False reports and rumors that she is anorexic or suffering from another eating disorder enrage her, because she feels she is a role model to many women, and, most importantly, to her two-year-old daughter Stella.

“I’m a role model for a lot of women out there, so I hate that they say these things unwarranted, without any research and facts. I think it’s doing a disservice to women out there that look up to any celebrity,” The Huffington Post quotes her as saying.

“That worries me every single day, the way they attack me in the press. I’m so grateful that [Stella] can’t read yet. I’m hoping they’ll let up on that by the time she gets old enough to understand, but I’m going to have to explain to her that this is what happens.”

Celebrities who have suffered from anorexia include ‘Ally McBeal’ star Calista FlockhartKate Beckinsale and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz.
