    Too fat, too thin, Spelling has weathered both ends of the body criticism spectrum. But when people started calling her anorexic, Spelling struck back. "Oh my God, I'm not anorexic," she told People. "I want to be a positive role-model for my daughter. The last thing I want to put out there is that it's acceptable to be too thin or have an eating disorder because you're in Hollywood."
