In a heartbreaking revelation yesterday, Rocsi Diaz from BET’s 106 & Park openly discussed struggling through an eating disorder in high school. The normally bubbly host broke down during the taping of the show as she described her use of diet pills and anorexic behavior in order to remain thin for her cheerleading team.
I commend her bravery in revealing this on television…in front of a live audience. Body image issues (especially in the entertainment industry) is common and while not everyone can openly admit that they binge/purge, use diet pills and go through other extreme measures to fit in to the industry standard of beauty, she did and I’m sure her story touched quite a few lives.
