In 2006, observers noticed how she was notably thinner compared to her body when she was in The Simple Life. Because of this, it was rumored that she had an eating disorder. She said in an interview: “I know I’m too thin right now, so I wouldn’t want any young girl looking at me and saying, ‘That’s what I want to look like’. I started seeing a nutritionist and a doctor. I was scared that it could be something more serious.”
It was also reported that she started working with a physical trainer. She also clarified that she doesn’t have an eating disorder.
