Ben Widdicombe Blind Item

Which skinny NYC model busted on a night out with a bag of white powder in her purse, who claimed it was baking soda, was actually telling the truth? The bulimic girls believe that rinsing with it after vomiting neutralizes the effects of the stomach acid on their teeth.

this is just sad.

And also, a little bit funny. I don't mean to make light of eating disorders, but seriously? A model with a bag of white powder and it turns out to be BAKING SODA?

why don't these lazy ass bitches WORK OUT instead of cutting corners?

Mooshki said...

Jax, because then they'd get muscle tone, and that's verboten in modeling. :(

she should use it to wash her face...it's a great for exfoliating when teamed w/ your cleanser. also balances out the skin's ph level.

oh wait, wrong board.

Buwha Ha Haaa!

That is classic.

selenakyle said...

Anyone know if she's doing more harm than good with that technique?

Mooshki said...

Probably not, SK. Baking soda is good stuff. Makes a great cheap bath salt too.

Dee said...

Selenakyle, you're right. As the daughter of a dentist, my dad told me how he could always tell a bulimic or a bad drunk who was frequently vomiting by how worn off the enamel was. He also said that a lot of them make the mistake of brushing their teeth right after throwing up numerous times, which only worsens the effect of the stomach acid on the teeth. He said the least harmful thing to for teeth would be to rinse with water right after and wait a few hours to brush teeth (not that I am trying to encourage bulimia in any way).

And as a guess for the blind, Chanel Iman?

i am a princess, yes i am said...

it just seems ironic that it truly wasn't coke. i mean when does that actually happen?

Pookie said...

oooooooooh, bb! thank you! good tip i need to try. :)

This is a tragedy in the making. Please out this girl so maybe, someone will help her before it's too late.

Tragic - Baking soda (if that's the US equivalent of Bicarbonate of Soda) is also good for getting rid of that smell when your dog has rolled in a mud bath that includes fox pooh and stinks to highest heaven. Just leave him outside, sprinkle it liberally in the fur, give it a good rub-in and then brush out!

ONLY works with bicarb for your pet. (tomato ketchup apparently also works, but that's just too messy)

Just though I'd share that too.

Wow, we are getting very "Ask Heloise" here, are we not???

LOL

Good tips, though, I have to say.

Recipe sharing in the next "Your turn", Enty??

Diana said...

PS I'd have shared some pictures if I had any! I could email you some pics of my last vacation but I just don't believe it would have the same effect...

Mooshki said...

Thanks, K, I will definitely try that next time my dog finds a stinky to roll in!
