"Unbearable Lightness" by Portia De Rossi

The new memoir from Portia De Rossi is about the actress' struggle with anorexia and bulimia.  De Rossi is known for her role in the hit television show, Ally McBeal.  She is also known as the wife of comedian Ellen DeGeneres.  De Rossi recently appeared on the Oprah show to discuss her new book.  She has written a very candid account about how she secretly suffered with eating disorders.  She discusses how her experiences in Hollywood shaped her body image. 

De Rossi is originally from Melbourne, Australia.  She began modeling at 12 and by age 15 she began her struggle with anorexia and bulimia.  Even though she went through some really rough times, she was able to find her way.  Her honest story will help any woman that has ever dealt with a negative body image.  It's amazing to me how such a beautiful woman could ever feel ugly.  It goes to show how important self-esteem is.  We must love ourselves for who we are.  We all have to be the best we individually can be.

Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain is a best seller at The Quality Corner.  Visit to purchase your copy of this stirring memoir.
