Very few people were laughing this week when Bethenny Frankel posted a pic of herself wearing her 4-year-old daughter Byrn’s pajamas on Instagram.
Paulina Pinsky CERTAINLY didn’t find the photo funny! The daughter of Dr. Drew Pinsky penned an essay calling out Bethenny for perpetuating unrealistic beauty standards that women face!
Back in February, 21-year-old Pinsky opened up about her own struggles with anorexia and bulimia. Miz Frankel has also admitted to having eating disorders. Which is why Paulina is especially troubled by the photos Frankel posted.
Dr. Drew is an expert on treating addiction, so this is surely to hit close to home.
He has nothing but love and admiration for his daughter and, now, the 21-year-old Paulina Pinsky is opening up about her 7 year battle with anorexia.
And, as an addiction medicine specialist, he knows all about what goes into a fight like this, but a lot of her issues seem to stem from her upbringing, especially her mother, his wife of 22 years, Susan Pinsky. In fact, what Paulina says about the pressures her mother put on her are even tough to read.
In a statement, Dr. Drew said:
We can't believe he kept this a secret!
Dr. Drew Pinsky has such an amazing story to tell and we're so happy he's sharing his knowledge with the world.
He helps so many people, so we're glad that there were some seriously brilliant doctors there for him when he needed it.
Dr. Drew just recently revealed that he suffered from prostate cancer and thankfully after a radical robotic prostatectomy earlier this year, he's cancer free!
"While many of you were celebrating the Fourth of July, I was at home on my couch recovering from a radical robotic prostatectomy. Four hours of surgery had left me in great pain, without an appetite, and in need of help from my college-age son, Jordan, to get up and lie down. But I was cancer-free for the first time in at least two years."
He wrote a personal blog post to tell his story.
Dr. Drew wanted people to hear about it directly from him, not from the media or anyone else.
He also wanted to raise awareness of the disease, saying:
Mindy McCready appeared on VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in 2009, and after being the fifth person to pass after starring in the show, a source close to Dr. Drew Pinksy is stating that the doc did everything he could to help the country star.
