Snooki’s Body Image Struggles

We love Snooki just the way she is — a tiny, tanned gorilla lover with a penchant for annoying people to a criminal degree. But her self-image was once less than stellar. As a teenager, she suffered from both anorexia and bulimia. Her weight plummeted to a potentially deadly 80 pounds, dangerous even for someone who's only 4-foot-9. Scary stuff. Perhaps she nursed herself back to health on pickles and juiceheads? No matter what, we're glad to hear she's fully recovered. Jersey Shore just wouldn't be the same without her.
