If only her body had a say

Demi Lovato is one of the most outspoken celebs in regards to body positivity, especially when it comes to dealing with eating disorders.

However, the Body Say singer may have taken her role as a social justice warrior too seriously over the weekend when she critiqued a fan-made drawing… because now some of her fans are calling her out for being too harsh!

Apparently, a Romanian Lovatic named VladyArt shared some Instagram art depicting Demi as a mermaid earlier over the Summer.

While the picture initially went unnoticed, Demi had a negative response to the nearly-NSFW drawing when it was regrammed just before the weekend, commenting:

RH-Oh no she didn't!

Bethenny Frankel may be the Queen B when it comes to Real Housewives of New York City… but this skinny girl may have finally met her match.

That's because after WEEKS of poking and prodding at newbie Jules Wainstein for having an eating disorder, B's rival is finally fighting back!

As you may recall, Jules admitted to having a bulimia relapse just three days prior to filming during last week's episode, so you'd think Bethenny — and to a lesser extent, Carole Radziwill — would be more sympathetic to her costar considering she's dealt with various eating and food issues as well.

But you'd be wrong!!!

It seems the soon-to-be divorced housewife has learned the hard way that whatever secrets you tell Bethenny will be thrown right back in your face. It's almost as if Bravo cast Jules just to subtly market for Skinnygirl or something…

Stay strong, Jules!

Usually when a new woman gets added to the Real Housewives franchise, it takes them a few seasons to really feel comfortable around their new costars.

However, that doesn't really seem to be the case with RHONY newbie Jules Wainstein… because not only is she broadcasting her crumbling marriage on national television, she's also getting extremely honest about her battle with eating disorders.

Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill have been making fun of Jules' weight for practically the entire season… but they weren't laughing on Wednesday when the mother-of-two admitted to throwing up just three days prior!

Jules is such a welcomed addition to the cast… we really hope those one season wonder rumors prove to be false!

RHONY Star Jules Wainstein Confirms Her Eating Disorder To Bethenny Frankel — Watch Her Emotional Reveal

Take notes, Yolanda: this is how you handle an illness on national television…

When Bethenny Frankel first started drawing attention to Real Housewives newbie Jules Wainstein's questionable eating habits, we never thought they'd eventually end up on the same side.

Well, that's exactly what happened on Wednesday when Jules confided in Queen B that she does in fact suffer from a number of eating disorders!

While on a casual lunch date, Bethenny tried to get to know more about her costar's past when Jules admitted that despite seven years of higher education, she never actually finished college due to being in treatment so often.

Of course, Bethenny slightly soured the moment by making Jules' news about herself and her mom's battle with bulimia… but we're just hoping this means she'll stop talking crap about J in the future.

Plus, we have to give Jules credit for being so open about her issues and for doing what she can to fight the social stigma that comes with anorexia.

Amalie Lee documents her recovery from anorexia.

This woman's story makes us so happy!

Amalie Lee struggled with severe anorexia as a teen, and now she's documenting her inspirational recovery on social media.

The 20-year-old posts before-and-after pictures of her weight gain, in addition to sharing lots of images of the food she eats with plenty of nutritional advice!

Amalie Lee documents her recovery from anorexia.

She's come a long way!

Her feed is a great source for anybody who has struggled or continues to struggle with eating disorders, and is looking for help with recovery!

Amalie also provides advice and wisdom from her own experience:

"In recovery from eating disorders, there is a lot of focus on the physical part. Being ill means looking physically ill; dry skin, hair falling out and a thin and fragile frame. But guess what? Most ED sufferers are actually normal- or overweight.

For me, recovery meant going from a body seen as abnormal and unappealing by others and society in general. But for some, recovery may mean letting go of a body seen as "fit" and ideal by society, and instead embrace a higher body fat percentage. A woman might get praised for her six pack, when she is in fact eating 1000 calories a day to maintain a body fat percentage so low that she does not even have her period."

Her feed is definitely a judgment-free zone:

"Not everybody who recovers will end up on a perfect bmi of X. Mind-blowing fact: you can be healthy without looking like a fitness model, and people who looks like fitness models are not always healthy.
I am damn proud of my physical change as you can see, and I enjoy showing you my progress. But always remember that healthy is not a look, and neither is recovery.#realcovery is for everyBODY👊"

Yes! So much truth in her words!

And we're so happy and proud of her for taking the steps to be healthy again!
