Mom Lisa also explained how people can help friends, family and love ones suffering with eating disorders while talking to her fellow housewives during last season’s reunion.
‘Amelia’s gone through a lot in her anorexia. She’s quite healthy right now, right in this moment. And recently, people have said, “Well, you don’t look anorexic, you’re not that thin,” which is a really big trigger. It’s f***ing difficult.’
