Alexis Bellino, the star of 'Real Housewives of Orange County', recently revealed the details of her battle with a lifelong problem, eating disorder, and how she overcame it.
She admitted that she suffered from both anorexia and bulimia, triggered at the age of 12 after her parents' divorce.
"In college I would go days without eating, because it does consume you.I would do both, but mostly purging because I would be out with friends. It's not pretty," she said.
Seeing her condition, her mother persuaded her to seek professional help.
Leaving an important message for the many battling this condition, "It's time to try to help people with something I overcame. Someone can be 10 years free of it. Your life can go back to normal. I've been through a lot of therapy over the years. You can come through the other side."
