I don't make a conscious effort to talk to her about it. But I'm sure that I make off-the-wall comments like 'she is too skinny' or look you can see her bones. I hate that society thinks that the skinnier the better. Even the cartoons: I saw an esurance ad yesterday and thought dang even the cartoons are anorexic! There has to be a happy medium with weight. And when a celebrity gets to what I think is a healthy weight the press slams them for being fat! Marilyn Monroe or Jayne Mansfield wouldn't have stood a chance these days.
I can honestly say that when I first heard of Brittany's death, I thought it was drug related.
