Today's Blind Items

This female A list tween star has an eating disorder of epic proportions. She rarely eats and when she does eat to make her parents happy she immediately gets rid of it. Painfully thin she has had to have a doctor come to three different hotel rooms in the past few months because she has passed out from weakness. One time she even cut her head on the corner of a table when she passed out.

Very upsetting, tragic. Her parents should yank her out of her celebrity life, change their names and do their own version of WITSEC.

The one starlet who immediately comes to mind is Miranda Cosgrove... recent photos show her to be scary thin.

sounds like it's time for someone to leave the biz and go into year long treatment. will mommy and daddy 'low it?

They should make her read the Karen Carpenter story. The end was not pretty.

RocketQueen said...

Selena Gomez? Painfully thin lately :(

Cheryl said...

Sad. As others have said she needs to go away and get well. I hope she has supportive people around her but that seems to be rare with the young stars today.

RJ said...

I'm not that familiar with the tween stars. I only see their pictures when they are posted here or on E!, but from what I've seen this could be any of them. They all look painfully thin to me except for Miley. Say what you will about her intellect, she has a very good body and yet still looks healthy.

stephani said...

The mention of three different hotel rooms implies to me that this is a tweener who is/was on tour. Taylor Momsen would fit the bill. There were photos of her touring England recently with her band, and she is skinny.

Is Taylor Swift too old to be considered a tweener. She's painfully thin too.


Heh. What's with all the Taylors? Taylor Momsen. Taylor Swift. Taylor Lautner. I never noticed that before.

Karmen said...

Selena Gomez makes sense. She's been touring for her concert recently.

This is so sad.

Patrick said...

What about Victoria Justice? Her show is produced by Columbia/Epic Label Group, and she's awfully slim. I'm sure she's not the only tweener suffering from an eating disorder, but she's gotta be one of them.

jen said...

First thought was Miranda Cosgrove. Recent pictures of her show her looking absolutely painfully thin :(

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I don't think she's A-list and I don't know her age, but that Sarah Hyland chick on Modern Family is really REALLY skinny.

Ellen said...

Wow...lots of good guesses! I was thinking of Miranda Cosgrove or Selena Gomez (not too familiar with tweeners, but A list implies that most people would at least recognize the name). I like the Taylor Momsen guess, too. She is super thin, cranky a lot (from not eating?) and says she's not close to other people from Gossip Girl. Not being close to people is an excellent way to disguise an eating disorder. No matter who this is, I really wish the media would stop trying to push this super thin look on everyone because it is not healthy and it looks horrible. HOW SAD!!!!

At least people know about it and are trying to do something...hopefully they'll get through to her!

califblondy said...

Is Taylor Momsen A-list?

I think Miranda Gosgrove and Selena Gomez are better guesses, but I hope like hell it ain't iCarly!

nancer said...

someone should start a company. have all these anorexics bring the food they won't eat (so they can wear a size 0) to a central place so it can be packaged and sent to places like darfur where they're literally dying for some food.
i'm sick of these stories.

Connie said...

CAn somone give me a decent definition of the term : TWEENER?

Thank you

Jessica said...

Totally Miranda Cosgrove. Heard many people mention it after seeing her at the VMA's. She looks like a skeleton compared to what she used to look like.
As far as Taylor Momsen goes, do you think she would be eating to "please her parents" if they don't care that she is 16 and walking down the street smoking and in garter belts and fishnets as her everyday attire?

Jessica said...

Connie - Be"tween" a child and an adult, usually 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

BlahFrickinBlah said...

Why ship it to dafur? There are plenty of hungry people in the US that could use a decent meal.

momo said...

Oh Jessica good point, Taylor M doesn't seem like she would do anything to please her parents, lol.

I thought Miranda Cosgrove too. I hadn't seen a picture of her in awhile and then saw an image from one of the recent award ceremonies and was shocked at how much she seems to have wasted away.

SFG said...

What about Lea Michele? I haven't seen the season premiere yet but a bunch of my friends said she looks WAY too skinny. Don't know if she fits the definition of tween though, even if she plays one on TV. Whoever it is, I hope they get help and soon.

sunnyside1213 said...

I thought tweener meant kids in the 9 to 12 age range? Not kids. Not teens.

sunnyside1213 said...

Meant to add, the tweener refers to the fan, not the age of actors who appeal to tweeners.

HudsonJoe said...

@Connie Generally tweener is a child in the 10 through 12 age group. I would also suggest that there is a connotation that you are talking about girls when you use the term.

On this site and some of the other gossip site quoted here tweener also appears to be used to identify those stars poppular with the 10 to 12 year olds.

parissucksliterally said...

Cosgrove has been a stick for as long as she has been on TV. I would not doubt for one second it is her.

Poor girl.

hunter said...

Google "Miranda Cosgrove Skinny" and you will see photos of her where the bones stick out of her knees and even her bare feet look starved.

Her parents need to be parents and get her into treatment NOW. Forget the celebrity. The longer such an eating disorder goes on, the harder it is to cure...and the more damage she does to her growing body. She could hurt her future fertility, she will probably develop early osteoperosis, and she could have heart and kidney problems as well. If she's vomiting too, she's really in danger.

Are they Lohan-esque parents or the real deal?

ctkat1 said...

It's Miranda Cosgrove- google "Miranda Cosgrove skinny" or check out this video of pictures: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6t9Xa2yNKs8

She's skin and bones...look worse that the Olsen sister and Nicole Richie back in the day. Poor kid.

Sara said...

Nancer, anorexia has nothing to do with wanting to be a size zero. It's a cry for help and an extreme form of self-punishment. If it's her, then something sad is going on in Miranda's life, and I hope she gets treatment. It says a lot about her home situation that her parents are still allowing her to work when she's passing out from not eating. Any parent who knows their daughter is starving herself and doesn't get her into treatment is irresponsible and neglectful.

@Sara. Thank you. I used to suffer from EDs (and to be honest, I'm always one sandwich away from relapsing)... Miranda Cosgrove reminds me of how I looked when I was my smallest (about 5'5, 97-ish lbs)- the big sign is hair on random places of your body (I used to get it on the small of my back and my arm hair got SO much worse- ick!), cold/wearing lots of layers of clothes (it makes you look bulkier/bigger), and sometimes red fingertips (not just from throwing up, but because of poor circulation). After awhile, it isn't about what size you wear. It's grasping at anything just to feel like you're in control of something. For me, it was the ONLY thing I had any control over in my home life, so I controlled the hell out of it. Restricting made me feel like *I* was in charge. It gets addicting after awhile not because of what the size on your jeans is, but because you get used to being in charge and it makes you feel powerful.

And passing out is common; I did it all the time. I passed out in the shower probably 10 times (I think from the force of the water and the heat, bc I would always take hot, hot, hot showers to try and warm up).

Anyway, all that shit to say it's Miranda Cosgrove. Selena Gomez is skinny from all the coke she does- everyone knows that.

f00bby said...

wasn't there a blind re a tween with nose candy issues that miranda cosgrove was thought to be the answer for?
I'm not familiar with her or selena gomez, but since this blind doesnt mention nose candy maybe whoever is the answer to the other blind isn't the answer to this? possible ruling out cosgrove?

Mango said...

My first thought was Miranda Cosgrove. How sad. "School of Rock" was on this weekend and she was so good in it; you could tell she was a force to be reckoned with. She has a great future ahead of her if she can conquer her demons. Best of luck, Miranda!

Jamie's Girl said...

She needs to quit. NOw. Her parents should NEVER allow this to happen.

Ice Angel said...

What about Dakota? She is a waif!

MB said...

@Just Another Blonde - what a struggle you went through, girl! I'm glad you're ok now and still alive to tell your story. :)

stillhere said...

This is all so sad. Why can't there be some sort of children's watchdog commission in the entertainment industry? There probably is, I suppose, but why can't there be one that actually works. Someone who scares these kids and their guardian's and the studios into making sure the children are healthy and taken care of. They could suspend them from the industry or levy LARGE enough fines to make it unprofitable to allow this to happen. These kids have so much freedom and power and money. Selena Gomez is precious and my kids love her. I hate to think she is doing coke to stay thin, well probably doing coke to make it through the day, now. It's just sad and unreal. It's been going on since the beginning of Hollywood, you would think, hope, try to believe that people would know better and try to make a difference.
