    Katharine McPhee poses in a bikini, talks about bulimia and depression

    Cele|bitchy » Blog Archive » Katharine McPhee poses in a bikini, talks about bulimia and depression

    “American Idol” alum Katharine McPhee is the cover girl of “Shape” magazine. The standard “bikini while standing in a pool of water” pose was her choice, and she looks great - bleach job aside. Honestly, the best thing this girl had going for her was her long, beautiful chestnut hair, and now she’s hacked it off and bleached it blond. Why? Anyway, Katharine talks about her 7-year battle with bulimia in the issue, and also how she is dealing with ongoing depression with the help of a support group.
    Katharine McPhee opens up about her 7-year battle with bulimia in the February issue of Shape magazine.
    “The more I focused on my weight, the worse my bulimia got,” says the American Idol runner-up, 25. “Now I’m more easygoing. I stopped fighting myself and became more forgiving of my body. Ironically, the weight came off naturally through exercise but no dieting.”
    McPhee says she no longer pays attention to how many pounds she weighs.
    “At my last physical, the nurse took my vitals and said, ‘Wow, you must be taking care of yourself! Your blood pressure is perfect. You’re very healthy,’” she says. “Hearing her say that made me feel better then seeing an ‘ideal’ number on the scale.”
    While she’s adapting a healthier body image, McPhee still battles depression.
    “I’ve tried writing down affirmations, but that doesn’t work for me,” she explains. Every Monday, she attends a women’s group meeting organized by her church where everyone reveals their highs and lows of the week.
    “This exercise is so cool because it allows me to reflect on where I am in my life, and also to hear what others are going through,” she says. “When we’re done, I feel more connected to the world and not so lonely. It’s the best way to start my week.”
    [From Us Weekly]

    It sounds like Katharine is in a happy place these days, although I have to wonder how she kept her issues hidden when she was on TV every week during “Idol.” She always seemed so happy and upbeat, and she looked great. One would have never imagined she was dealing with an eating disorder and depression at the time. Nothing against Katharine, but I always considered that particular season of the show a big joke, with that “Soul Patrol” guy winning. What was his name?

    I think she looked much better with her dark hair.

    The blonde is terrible.

    I also liked her body before, but if she's healthy, eh.

    So cutting her hair and bleaching it to hell and back wasn't a self-hating act?
    When your daughter plays "House," she pretends to be an annoying doctor with a pill-addiction and a limp.

    She is doing a good thing in that some of her fan base consists of young gals. So I cannot snark on her speaking of all of this.

    But, her hair looks horrible!

    LOL I hope not...I've been doing it for years, and I don't hate me! I just hate being dark-haired and having long hair!

    I had no idea who she was, so to me, this girl didn't look too bad but then, I never saw her prior to this.

    Please don't ever wear light colored lingerie under dark clothing. The inverse holds as well. Thank you.

    I'm seeing a trend that the only way some of these has-beens stay relevant is to talk about their weight, eating disorders and depression. Enough already! That hairstyle belongs on someone OVER 50, bad choice. I like her hair brown too.

    She looks so bad as a blond! I can't believe she can't see that.

    I thought she was gorgeous before. The blond really ages her as well.

    I agree, she was gorgeous as a brunette and should go back to that.

    Brunette suits her so much better!

    I agree with what enty said on CDAN...she talks about her body image issues in a magazine that then photoshops her within an inch of her life. Her face is downright unattractive there as well.

    Lindz Blowhan needs that reality check, as well.

    McPhee is gorgeous, imo. Her face is just beautiful, but the hair - damn.

    She was (is?) the face of Big Sexy Hair products, so she had to know she had great hair. Why she'd do this fuckery to it is beyond me.
