Michelle Duggar has 19 kids, but that's not the only hard thing she's had to go through (though, her kids are extremely rewarding!).
She also battled bulimia as a teen.
The oldest daughters of the Duggar clan have written a book called Growing Up Duggar, and inside, Jana, 24, Jill, 22, Jessa (who just got engaged!), 21, all write about their mother through the disguise of a teen named 'Marie' before revealing that they're actually speaking about their mom.

Being a child star has to be one of the toughest things a kid can go through! All the fame, all the fortune — how are you supposed to lead a normal life??
Former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure made it through, but not without her own set of struggles… including bulimia. As if you don't remember, she played the oldest of the three kids, D.J. Tanner.
Now she's 37 and opening up about it all! She's being outspoken in both interviews AND she has a new book out called Balancing It All.
Talking about the pain she endured, she revealed:

We're still extremely proud of Demi Lovato for being sooo open and honest about the dark phase in her life!
And since dropping the cocaine smuggling bomb yesterday, the singer figured she'd take her truthfulness and roll with it!
The X Factor judge confessed new details about her debilitating eating disorder—including how her mother and grandmother suffered from many similar symptoms and mental health issues, which influenced her food choices at a young age.

We've all seen Simon Cowell's no-nonsense, harsh tongue at work on both the judges panel for American Idol and X Factor, but this is just UGLY. And because of that, we sincerely hope that this not true.
According to a new report in Star Magazine, however, he's apparently told returning judge Demi Lovato that despite her well-documented public breakdown and rehab stint for self-harming and bulimia, she STILL needs to lose 20 pounds before the reality competition begins production next fall, and is demanding that she work off the weight this summer!

This is good news!
Demi Lovato may have had her fair share of problems with bulimia, self harming, alcohol abuse and bipolar disorder, but after she went to rehab, she was able to think back on the things she did and change her life.
In a recent interview, the 20-year-old sensation talked about when she went to rehab and what having a lot of 'friends' really means.
Here are the HIGHlights:

Girls just wanna have fun; even superstars like Demi Lovato!
In-between rehearsals for her huge CHUM FM concert over the weekend, the Heart Attack songstress enjoyed a refreshing visit to Barbados serene beaches. She took a quick dip, before scurrying away from the prying paparazzi eyes, her towel wrapped tight around her.
We're well aware of Demi's history with her body image, so we understand why she would be shy to flaunt it for the cameras, but we can still see under that towel — and she has NOTHING to be embarrassed of.
Hopefully in time gurl will have as much confidence on the sands as she does on the stage.
Show off what yo' mama gave you, Demi! You damn, damn, DAMN good!
