E! to tackle eating disorders

E! is going to take a break from glorifying ultra-thin celebrities to air a six-part documentary series about eating disorders.

"What's Eating You?" will air this fall and tackle both common and bizarre eating problems.

Some samples: "a woman who eats a roll of toilet paper dipped in pickle juice every night before bed; another who lives in seclusion and feels compelled to eat twigs, pencil erasers and super-glue; and an aspiring model whose body is so starved that she physically smells because her body literally is eating itself alive."

Here's an irony free quote from the network:

“I know that I speak for everyone at E! when I say how proud we are to welcome this important program to our network," said Lisa Berger, the network's executive vp of Having It Both Ways. "The prevalence of eating disorders is all too common in a society that can often value looks and appearance above all else."
