COMMENTARY
A note about the Lucy Lawelss bulimia comments from the USA Weekend article which went out on the AP feed.

PRIMARY SOURCE

   Lucy Lawless, who battles evil on TV's "Xena: Warrior Princess," has a blunt
message for anorexics.  

   "To any girls out there who are thinking of it, or are just getting into it,
just quit your bloody nonsense," the New Zealander says in the new USA Weekend.

   Lawless says she is tired of hearing about the disorder in which people
starve themselves. "You think you're going to get respect, attention, blah,
blah, blah, and it's quite the opposite."

   Lawless say she speaks from binge-purge experience. "I used to quite like
bulimia. I used to think that was fun."
