This is dedicated to all of the FitPerez readers (and 7-10% of the world's population) who suffer from IBS, otherwise known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Hollywood (and a few other famous faces) wants you to know you're not alone!

There are a host of celebrities who regularly deal with symptoms associated with the disorder including pain, gas, cramping or bloating, and diarrhea or constipation.

Jenny McCarthy, a former Playboy Playmate, has unabashedly admitted to suffering from "chronic diarrhea" and other IBS symptoms in her autobiography, Jen-X: Jenny McCarthy's Open Book.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer was diagnosed with the gastrointestinal disorder in 1997 and expressed her IBS struggles a statement, saying:

"I am always fearful that my IBS symptoms will return at any moment, so I always have to know where the nearest restroom is. I'm afraid that eating will result in stomach pain. Traveling is difficult. And IBS often makes even a simple evening out with my husband, to enjoy a concert or movie, seem impossible."

Tyra Banks also wasn't afraid to reveal her condition on her talk-show in 2006 when she announced to her guest Janet Jackson and audience that she has IBS.
