Has anyone ever called you too fat behind your back? Well, Nicole Richie has the opposite problem. She’s been called ‘too skinny’ (AKA anorexic) and she thinks those assumptions are beyond unfair

Nicole Richie is furious that people assumed she had an eating disorder in her pre-mommy heyday.

“I felt it was a little unfair to say someone has an eating disorder when they don’t. It’s extremely insulting and irresponsible,” the 28-year-old said in the March issue of Marie Claire U.K.

Nicole, mother to 2-year-old Harlow and 4-month-old Sparrow by baby daddy Joel Madden, added, “An eating disorder is serious and it’s a disease.”

Good for you for fighting back. Fat or skinny, it’s no fun for anyone to have their weight be constantly under a microscope.
