The Simple Life star has opened up to style magazine Vanity Fair, admitting she shudders at the thought of young women trying to obtain her skinny look.
Richie accepts her slim-line look can be a concern and admits she has a weight problem in the publication. She says, "I know I'm too thin right now, so I wouldn't want any young girl looking at me and saying, 'That's what I want to look like.'"
But she insists her weight problems are not connected to an alleged eating disorder, and she's doing whatever she can to take control of her health.
She adds, "I started seeing a nutritionist and a doctor... I do recognize that I have a problem, and I want to be responsible and fix it, and I'm on that path right now."
But even her doctors aren't convinced the star isn't anorexic. In the upcoming Vanity Fair article, one of her medics, Jeffrey Wilkins says, "If it's not anorexia, she should be able to gain the weight. If it ends up being anorexia we can help her with that."
