Model Bria Murphy, actor Eddie Murphy’s 23-year-old daughter, in a recent interview has confirmed the rumor that many models resort to a radical cotton balls diet in order to maintain weight
Bria told about this diet on the Good Morning America show. She also admitted that she was a witness of different diets – many of her colleagues, in order to keep fit, take drugs or try completely non-standard food solutions.
But the main diet trend among models is cotton balls.
Murphy did not hide away the details:
“I’ve heard of people eating the cotton balls with the orange juice … they dip it in the orange juice and then they eat the cotton balls to help them feel full, because the cotton’s not doing anything. It’s just dissolving. And it makes you think you’re full, but you’re not. “
It sounds awful, but cases of such a “diet” are not uncommon. In 2010, model Amy Lemons admitted eating cotton balls dipped in juice. In 2011, Cecile Lopez’s mother wrote in her book:
“I personally know of one model who dipped cotton balls in orange juice and consumed it to feel full. Later it came out that she had anorexia.”
Last year, a similar case was reported by a Russian model Kira Dikhtyar.
A former editor of a popular magazine Christy Clements in her book revealed that models also eat paper napkins. Of course, what’s going on is bad. This unhealthy habit emphasizes many models’ despair – so much they want to remain thin.
As you can see, despite all the talks that fashion is stepping towards more feminine shapes, most of the models are anxious about each extra gram of weight. They venture to take radical and very harmful steps to maintain weight. That must be monitored and stopped.
