COMMENTARY
More on the bulimia statements.

PRIMARY SOURCE

   Lucy Lawless, who battles evildoers in the show "Xena: Warrior Princess," has
a blunt message for anorexics.  

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

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

   "You think you're going to get respect, attention, blah, blah, blah," she
said. "It's quite the opposite."

   Lawless speaks from experience.

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