What a waste...

Inside a Model's Deadly Anorexia Battle
PEOPLE.com – Thursday, November 23, 2006

Before her death last week from anorexia, Brazilian model Ana Carolina Reston was robbed of both her beauty and her strength by the disease, friends say.

Earlier this year, when she arrived at the Mexico City airport after a job in Japan, she was too emaciated and weak to carry her luggage, said fellow Brazilian model Aliana Idibar. Once luminous, Reston had become a virtual skeleton. "The skin was gray. The eyes were sad and without light," recalls Estela Saenz, owner of a Mexican modeling agency, who last saw Reston at that time.

The next day she canceled a bridal magazine booking to enter a São Paulo hospital, carrying only 88 lbs. on her 5'7" frame. Friends were grieved, but not entirely surprised, to learn that on Nov. 14 Reston, 21, had died from multiple organ failure caused by anorexia.

Here's MY beef... The whole point of this "disease" is to be a LIVING skeleton! It doesn't do you any good to be thin if you're DEAD. Anyone who dies from this disease was never strong enough to handle it. Look at these beautiful girls who have lived with it for years:

Mischa Barton and Nicole Richie


God bless Nicole Richie!!! Just a few short years ago she was the short, fat Sancho Panza to Paris' noble Don Quixote. Now she is one of the most famous Hollywood skinnies on the scene!

(God bless Mischa too, but she's always been naturally thin, she doesn't have to work for it too hard.)

These, as well as Mary-Kate Olsen, Kate Bosworth, Victoria Beckham... all Ana Royalty! Saints! We should start to rename them... Sister Ana Nicole... Sister Ana Mary-Kate... Sister Ana Posh...

Lord bless them all. They're not just sitting, wasting time while wasting away. They find the strength and determination to starve, exercise, and still look FANTASTIC in the limelight, posing for paparazzi, partying at the hottest nightclubs, and WORKING for a living! The skinnier they are, the more they work.

A special kudos to those girls who have endured "rehab" and come out and immediately shed all the weight they made you put on in that fat-lab. You were able to put a stop to the "rumors" that you were sick, you can now claim to be "recovering" and make everyone shut up while you continue your descent. Bravo!!!

Who would we worship if they were all dead? It's hard to exercise when you're "too emaciated and weak" to walk or carry weighted objects. The BEST ana's are the ones who can LIVE with this disease, always actively edging closer to that razor-thin line of danger.

I completely agree with you. =) Strength lies in knowing the perfect balance between life and death, not getting there.
