  1. 1

    She is 2 feet tall. 80 lbs. seems fine for that. She is now sloppy and has a gunt from drinking all the time. that's healthy?



  2. 2

    anorexic………looking for her on spinoff already huh?



  3. 3

    sad part is girls with this disease wont learn from this. They will see 2 things, her thin and anorexic/bulimic then her being called chubby by the media and no longer having those issues. The auto response will sadly be,"but why did she stop". Its awful but true. I am sure she made good money from it and probably had good intentions though.



  4. 4

    Um, 80lbs doesn't seem that light for someone that is 4'11. She actually looked a lot healthier in the "anorexic" photo than she does now.



  5. 5

    goes from too thin to too fat, too bad she is still ugly



  6. 6

    Now she looks like a big whore. And she thinks she's hot…



  7. 7

    look at the Wallmeyer twins and then say you "almost died". she may exhibit symptoms but her story appears to be for publicity.



  8. 8

    her 'too thin' pic is actually normal…now she's just a lump



  9. 9

    Erm..the girl is 4.9 tall which means that 100lbs would be a normal weight for her which in returns means that she was NOT almost dying when weighing 80lbs. Attention whore much?!



  10. 10

    McFatty?!?! Every picture I see of her she must weigh 160… and she's like 4'8".



  11. 11

    well she sure doesn't look like she has a problem anymore….little fat sausage looking thing crammed in a dress



  12. 12

    anorexic's/bulimic's don't get fat, if they're lucky they'll eventually look normal. in other words, she's full of shit.



  13. 13

    this is such bullshit! i had a problem with my weight and was anorexic, i looked worse than rachel zoe. i can tell you this girl has never been anorexic or bulimic this is purely for attention, that "too thin" picture is normal. you don't go from being anorexic and or bulimic to being overweight like her. you become gaunt, lose your hair, have protruding bones, lose your period & your boobs etc…..stop lying snooki this is a serious disease!!!!



  14. 14

    The WORST part is that now that she is a celeb, ignorant people like Wendy Williams will make comments about how Snooki is now too large and needs to cut back on food. How dare people like WW (who is enormous, btw) able to be so hypocritical thereby perpetuating Snooki's problem?! Shame, shame, shame on you, WW!!

  15. GG78 says – reply to this


    15

    Attention WHORE ! I've seen the pics and she wasn't "way too thin". LIAR !!!!!!!



  16. 16

    sorry but anorexics have problems with food FOR LIFE most of the time, she clearly doesnt. she just looks slim in her 'anorexic' picture



  17. 17

    Re: April 20th – you know SHIT no dick.



  18. 18

    so brave? you have the most fucked up judgement on who you admire and hate. You're a dumb ass. She's just selling her story for money obviously.



  19. 19

    she is a fat, alcoholic whore. Congrats! I don't buy her QQ story. This is just for attention because she can't stop stuffing food in her face.



  20. 20

    she looks healthier in that "too thin" picture then she does now. 80lbs is not dangerous for someone that short. she should be working on getting down to a healthy weight through diet and excercise instead of whining about how she used to have a nice body.

  21. YUCK says – reply to this


    21

    She's 4'9" so 80 lbs is within the bmi range this bitch is crazy she just want an excuse to balloon up to 180 lbs, she is clearly morbidly obese now! Attn jershore producers put this cow on a diet asap or no one will even want to fuck her in the new seasons and we all know that will translate to fewer ratings



  22. 22

    I'm 5'1", and I've weighed below 90 lots of times. I'm thin, but not anorexic. Snooki looks better in the before picture.



  23. 23

    Are you fucking joking? "I almost died" no no no you didn't. if she is 4'9” and weighed 80 pounds, her bmi would have been somewhere near 17.3 which isnt that far off of "normal"

    so there's NO fucking way she was near death, let alone anorexic. its disgusting that she is so starved for attention that she is passing out this bullshit story.



  24. 24

    "I Almost Died" - who does she think she's kidding? I'm 5"3 and when I suffered from an eating disorder about a year ago I went down to 84 pounds I never felt close to 'dieing', I was frequently tired, but that's about it. She's 4"11, so weighting 80 pounds is actually a healthy weight for her.



  25. 25

    Who is this? And why does her "thin" pix look better then her fat sloppy pix.



  26. 26

    are you kidding me? this fat troll has always been a fat cow with a busted face. can you imagine all the sweaty spots this cow has? only jersey fools would hit that troll. kinda like a female version of fat mario.



  27. 27

    Apparently she has decided on a "Liquid" diet to kick her eating problems.



  28. 28

    She's also battling being talentless. BUT YOU MORONS WILL KEEP HER GOING.



  29. 29

    you are all evil, hateful, despicable people. a girl says she has an eating disorder and the only thing you can say is "oh well she's still fat"?

    girls are fucking killing themselves everyday trying to live up to your worthless standards. go fuck yourselves. you people are why this country is so permanently fucked. you have no values. you have no empathy for human life. the fact that i share a country with people like you makes me sick to my stomach.



  30. 30

    She looks good in both pics. Like everyone else is saying, 80lbs at her height isn't near death.



  31. 31

    Re: perezhateswomen – oh shut up. this is obviously a made up story. you should be more angry at her for making it up.



  32. 32

    Umm Snooki? I think you beat anorexia for sure.



  33. 33

    Re: perezhateswomen – No, not 'a girl', a fame whore who gets paid for being trashy. Have you actually seen the pictures? She's the one you should be ashamed of, not of the people calling her out.



  34. 34

    'Snooki' stated she was 4'9" on the Wendy Williams Show.

    If that is true, 85-118lbs would keep her in the 'healthy' weight range. And that's with no muscle (which is quite obviously has none of)

    Stop sensationalizing her obvious body image issues, and feeding the troll.
    And get some real facts going with your ridiculous statements.

    Snookie has obvious eating/food issues, as one can no live on chips, pickles & alcohol without suffering the consequences of rapid weight gain. She looks extremely unhealthy, and shouldn't be the poster child of anything resembling healthy.



  35. 35

    she said this on season 1, why does she need to say it when she gets a magazine cover, what a fucking atention whore. snooki, ur not the only person that has had a eating disorder.



  36. 36

    ROFL ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Every picture i've ever seen her in shes a fat ass oompa loompa. Seriously so short and fat id kill myself…Her thighs are the same size as a mans waist.



  37. 37

    Re: aquaholic
    Wow, you seem to be the only sensible person on this whole thread. I was thinking the exact same thing, as what you wrote. Though it is true that people who have dealt w/ an eating disorder will probably always have some eating issues, it IS possible to live a normal healthy life. It all depends on the person, the support that person has, and their understanding of the disease and following processes. I'm sorry, but a lot of people here claiming that you 'never get better' are just spouting BS, and looking for some way to bash her. Plus, no one is taking into consideration what she does on JS. Chips, pickles and alcohol- the last one alone can contribute greatly to her current problems. People don't know what she went through when she was younger - who are you to deny something that she says is true? She's making enough profit from JS w/o having to produce this stuff 'just to get her name out there.'



  38. 38

    80 pounds actually sounds like a normal weight for someone her height, sure it might of been unhealthy -I'm no doctor- but either is drinking your life away. She's gotten bigger than 80 pounds obviously, but she has a cute body. But a gut isn't healthy either.

    It's just attention, just like her constant craptastic attitude.



  39. 39

    Not trying to be too mean here - but 80lbs for someone who's 4 ft 9 or whatever is not too dangerously thin and "near death" or am I wrong? I'm 5'1" and 90 lbs looks/feels/is perfectly healthy for me. I always think she looks a little chubby and unhealthy normally… she shouldn't be a poster child for before/after of such serious diseases.



  40. 40

    I've seen girls with anorexia, and Snooki doesn't look like she has anorexia on that other photo. Just another way for her to get attention! Very pathetic. That bitch disgusts me!



  41. 41

    Re: April 20th – ok now dear, anorexia and bulimia arent the same thing. bulimics tend to yoyo too thin normal too heavy
    get your facts straight



  42. 42

    she looked healthier before.. i don't really see any signs of an eating disorder. her proportions were basically perfect.



  43. 43

    yeah she keeps calling it anorexia-but when she told the story b4 she said it was like she was eating once a day for a mth or something and even a dr said that wasn't anorexia-this is all bs-the girl nvr had anorexia and 80lbs for someone her size is normal-she's not even 5ft!



  44. 44

    its pretty obviouse she is no longer suffering from those 2 disorders anymore.



  45. 45

    Re: perezhateswomen – give us all a break chick. its obviouse to everyone here that dumb snooki is bullshitting. a real anerixic DOES NOT look like her before picture. her before picture looks normal. now she is a tub of lard and is probably as slippery as one too. by the way anerexia is terrible but it is NOT an epidemic. on the contrary obesity IS an epidemic. u say u are ashamed to live in this country with us all so do us all a big favor and leave.



  46. 46

    As many others have pointed out, she doesn't look underweight in her "before" picture, she looks thin.
    And the fact that she's claiming to have been anorexic whilst holding a bottle of Coke, is somewhat humerous.



  47. 47

    she was never anorexic and she didn't almost die. she is 4'l0" and should weight 80. almost die? where are the bones sticking out photos? more crap



  48. 48

    She almost died? LOL, yeah right. I have been friends with real anorexic/bulimic. One of them hair was falling out to the point where she was almost bald, she would pass out at random times, and became anemic and required daily medication to live. Another friend got esophagael cancer in their 30's from bulima and the acid constantly destroying her esophagus. She is lucky to still have some of her esophagus left after the surgery. This snooki looked like an average weight when she was thin and she is just saying these things for attention.



  49. 49

    haha "Then: Too thin" LMAO! Dangerous 80 pounds? LMFAO! that is fine for her height. but what people need to realize is that it's not just weight. You can't just say, yeah my bmi is 17, i'm totally anorexic.

    I believe the bulimia part. But does she even know what anorexia is???? If anything she was a WANNAREXIC! Definition of anorexia on wiki: "Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by refusal to maintain a healthy body weight, and an obsessive fear of gaining weight due to a distorted self image…"

    A true anorexic would fear gaining weight. To balloon up to what she is now, she would have had to eat ALOT! And a true anorexic would have a lifelong battle with it. it will always be the voice in the back of your head. that's why many people relapse.

    Snooki you fat piece of shit. You just WISH you were anorexic. Loser. SHUT IT!



  50. 50

    And one more thing… here's another clue she wasn't anorexic in that picture.
    SHE'S DRINKING REGULAR COKE IN THAT PICTURE. A REAL ANOREXIC WOULD NEVER EVER DRINK REGULAR COKE. YOU STUPID B*TCH! do you know how many calories and shit is in that?



  51. 51


  52. 52

    She does not have an eating disorder…sure, disordered eating, but she has no idea what it is LIKE to have an eating disorder. I"m 28 and have been anorexic since I was 12, though not diagnosed since 15…she has no idea the hell it is to live in the head that I live in…Ive had recovery time..its hard work and requires a lot of therapy and WORK…this makes me angry



  53. 53

    Then too thin? Uhh no. Then, she was fit. Now she IS chubby and she IS flabby. What the media is saying is the truth. Now, they may be harsh, but it was her chocie to put herself out in there to begin with. I've delt with an eating disorder. I dropped to about 80 pounds as well. I"m also taller than Snooki here. 80 pounds and 4' 9' is not life threatening. She is making a big deal out of this, so everyone can say, aw poor snooki. It's really sad to see it out like this. And yes, she's gained a lot of weight. But anyone who drinks that much 24/7 would. Sorry Snooki, but I don't beleive you were anorexic. And that's because you were a regualr weight for your height. Honestly, you don't classify for the 'anorexic' column. NOt all eatign disordrs are anoreixa. It jsu bothers me a little bit that that's what everyone assumes that.



  54. 54

    wait, yeah, agreeing with the poster on top of me, when i was in my severe stages of my eatign disorder, which was serious, could not be classified as anorexia, a coke would have killed me. Shes out wearing a bikini, showing an itty-bitty bit of bone….
    You can never get rid of anorexia, no matter what treatment you go through. It's always in your mind. SOme people are syaing she's 120-130 now. That is actually a lot of her height. By 12o pounds her bmi would be over 24. Anyways, if someone who had suffered from anorexia and were to gain like 30 pounds or more in a couple of years, I\m not sure if they could live with themselves. Like me right now, I eat only very low or neg cal foods every day. And it's been like this for a very long time. And it's been hard for me, and even harder for girls who have had it longer. Girls who might never get over it and die. They can't look at their reflection in the mirror because they are repulsed by their body. And snooki comes along saying what a tough journey she's had and what it took for her to recover.
    Her then picture?
    When you stop eating, your boobs and your butt are the first thigns that go.
    Mine haven't really grown back. Actually they're as small as they were i ngrade seven.
    Stop pretending Snooki

    I"m getting my MPH with a concentration in nutrition so I know my healthy weight stuff.
    She's healthy at anywhere from 80-90lbs, she's ONLY 4'9. she's overweight now for her height. ::shakes head:: granted yacking and not eating isnt the BEST way to keep that weight off. maybe she should lay off the pickles and booze

  56. vonns says – reply to this


    56

    Re: perezhateswomen – someone who has a severe eating disorder like one of the posts above, that is something to to be concerned about and be very proud to have survived afterwards. but for someone to exploit a situation that if she only was around 80lbs at her worst, that is completely uncalled for, bc it's still just about a healthy weight.



  57. 57

    your bitches are all whore callin her a whore bitch u dont know if her story is true or not quit being jealous becuase ur ass aint a celeb go get a life and get out of hers u stupid big fat dirty whore who dont like snookie then why did u click on the link u stupid wanna bee fuck i never saw so many rude comments i bet u guys wouldnt want nobaody to do the same thing in return!!!



  58. 58

    Re: roseblanche – bitch shut the fuck up ur a whore ur just bullshiting too so qiut ur shit



  59. 59

    Re: uhlissuhrose – btich shut the fuck up u dont know shit quit being jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!



  60. 60

    Re: snookiesWIFE#1 – I strongly advise you to get a new role model.



  61. 61

    In season 1 of Jersey Shore, Snooki was talking trash about a couple of other girls, saying something like, "I don't want you to ever bring elephants like that to the house again." On the commentary for that episode, she was doing the same thing, saying, "Ugh, she's huge!" over and over again. You'd think that somebody who had issues with eating would be more sympathetic to other girls' weight problems. How sad.



  62. 62

    ok…i'm sorry but this girl is full of shit!! she acutally looks a lot better in her supposed "anoreixa" picture. I think she made this up to get attention, and its really fucked up!! i mean don't ppl with anorexia, even when they are recovering, always keep a tab on what they and etc. this is a real problem for ppl!!



  63. 63

    This girl os full of SSSSHHHHIIITTT!!! She shows no syptoms of recovering from anoreixa!!She is always talking shit about others girls and how they look!! Now why would she do that if she has such a problem with her own self image!!!Plus the girl is like 4"11, 80lbs is not unhealthy for someone that short!!She should be ashamed of herself, becuase this is a real issue for some ppl!!! What little respect I had for this girl is gone!!
