Giuliana Rancic Weight Woes Renewed As Christie Brinkley’s Model Daughter Sailor Seeks To Be ‘Skinny’
Giuliana Rancic, previously criticized for what appeared to be a dangerously low weight, is now attracting a new round of concern after photos of her very slim body went viral. Playing with her son, Giuliana appeared to have shed more pounds, reported the Daily Mail.
A host for E! News, who recently got slammed for critiquing a young woman’s dreadlocks on Fashion Police, Rancic happily posted the photos to Instagram showing how much fun she was having with her two-year-old Duke. But the 40-year-old chose a blouse that revealed her shoulder bones’ visibility.
The new round of anorexia rumors follows the concern that she received when a revealing gown during the Grammy Awards caused Twitter followers to urge her to eat more.
“I know the truth. I know that I eat a lot and I take walks and I have a faster metabolism,” retorted Rancic to those pleas.
After surviving breast cancer in 2011, Giuliana and her husband Bill became parents in 2012 with the help of a surrogate.
But Rancic isn’t alone in having to deal with claims that she’s too slim. Supermodel Christie Brinkley, slim at 61, appeared on Meredith Vieira’s talk show on Monday and discussed that she worries about her model daughter Sailor Brinkley Cook, who is 16-years-old, reported E News.
“When I went to the modeling agency with my daughter Sailor, I saw the girls [were] so, so, so skinny,” revealed Christie.
And so the model mother decided to set boundaries on how much her daughter could weigh.
“I just said to Sailor, ‘You’re not going to go there. Either the business comes to you, and you represent health, or you don’t need to do that.'”
However, that doesn’t mean that Christie wants her daughter to stay away from the industry that provided her with fame and fortune. Instead, she guided her daughter through the process of achieving a healthy weight.
“She had lost weight gradually over time, and she reached a point where she got some jobs as a model, and she got to the jobs and the other girls were so much thinner,” admitted the concerned mom.
So when Sailor phoned her mother for help, Christie offered her experienced advice when it came to her daughter’s fear that she would lose jobs if she didn’t lose more weight.
“And I said, ‘Don’t panic. That’s why they can split open the pants in the back, they can do whatever they have to but don’t panic.’ She did start to lose a little too much weight, but she caught it herself.”
As for Christie herself, she follows a low-carb high protein diet, as the Inquisitr reported. And Brinkley contends that attitude is just as important as nutrition when it comes to aging gracefully.
“I think that ultimately your age is determined by your attitude. It’s not the number, it’s not how many wrinkles you have on your face. It’s the energy that you project.”
