COMMENTARY
Yet more on the bulimia statements.

PRIMARY SOURCE

   Lucy Lawless, who battles evildoers in the television show "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 tells the upcoming issue of
USA Weekend.

   Lawless says she is actually tired of hearing about the eating disorder.

   "I've got to say anorexia sort of bores me," she said. "You think you're
going to get respect, attention, blah blah blah, and it's quite the opposite."

   Lawless say she speaks from experience.

   "I used to quite like bulimia. I used to think that was fun."
