Stephanie Pratt Copes With Bulimia

If ever there was a time to blame a reality show for something, this is the time. Stephanie Pratt admits that she is struggling with Bulimia, and The Hills is largely to blame.

When Stephanie would watch herself on T.V. next to slender Lauren Conrad she told US Weekly that she looked "huge".

Stephanie Pratt's problem was made worse during the Hawaii episode where Audrina told her she would look better with a shirt on over her swimsuit.

Not long after this, Pratt would begin to binge and purge, the early symptoms of Bulimia. She says thought that the producers of the show did not encourage or know about this behavior. She basically attributes the behavior to “working with skinny girls.”

Bulimia is an eating disorder and should be taken seriously. Many young and older women struggle with this behavior. It takes a huge step admitting there is a problem and letting girls know that this behavior is not right. In that respect Pratt is a decent role model in letting people know about this problem.
