Katharine McPhee is Recovering

American Idol runner-up, Katharine Mcphee, revealed that before she appeared on the show, she enrolled at Los Angeles’s Eating Disorder Center of California, where she spent three months undergoing group and individual therapy, six days a week for bulimia. She claims that she threw up at least seven times a day and she knew this could ruin her life and her ability to sing forever.

When I made it onto American Idol, I knew that food – my eating disorder – was the one thing really holding me back,” she says. “I was bingeing my whole life away for days at a time … So when I got on the show, I said, ‘You know what? I can do well in this competition. Let me give myself a chance and just get ahold of this thing….I knew I had put off going to a treatment center long enough – I’d been struggling with bulimia since I was 17.”

I could go on for days about the wonders and benefits of dating hot chicks with self esteem issues. Katharine McPhee has a kick ass body that looks like it’s built for sin, and if you’re her boyfriend, all you have to do to make her attack you and rip off your clothes is tell her she looks skinny in that dress.
