Valerie Bertinelli Blames Fashion Models for Unhealthy Eating Trends
American actress Valerie Bertinelli has blamed Gisele Bundchen and her other supermodel pals for modern eating disorder trends.

According to Valerie, the leading fashion models are not doing anything to promote a healthy image.

Bertinelli, who is the Jenny Craig weight loss spokeswoman, insists too many girls and young women are starving themselves to emulate "skinny" catwalk stars, and the models fail to understand that sizes zero and two are not the norm.

"When there were several of those models dying from anorexia and I read that Gisele Bundchen said something about it's not being the designers' fault but the parents' fault, I was like, 'Well now, wait a minute, Miss Skinny Girl. (I said), Designers do have something to do with this because they hire women like you'," Contactmusic quoted Bertinelli as telling Ladies Home Journal magazine.

"There was one designer who was proud of herself because she hired models that were a size four. And when asked why she didn't hire a (size) six or eight, she said, 'Because the clothes don't look good. They don't hang right," she stated.

"Aren't you supposed to design clothes that look good on real women?" she added.
