You knew it was going to take a Herculean effort from someone to end Jon and Kate Gosselin's reign of seven consecutive weeks on the cover of Us Weekly.
Turns out Stephanie Pratt was up to the task.
The Hills star and sister of Spencer Pratt opens up for the first time in the new issue of the celebrity news tabloid about hating her body and her terrifying secret struggle with bulimia - sparked, she says, by good old-fashioned peer pressure.
And because Stephanie Pratt is quasi-famous from a reality show (or at least a popular MTV show masquerading as reality), we know who said peers are.
The 5-foot-7 she-Pratt reveals she began the bulimic ritual - binge, then purge - after watching a Hills scene she shot with Lauren Conrad back in 2007:
"I was horrified. I remember saying, 'I can't believe how huge I look walking over to Lauren,'" she reflected on the agony of filming next to her pal LC.
She then asked co-star Audrina Patridge, "What looks better, 'shirt on or off?'"
Audrina's response: 'On.'"
That hurts. Says Stephanie Pratt, "The producers never put pressure on us to lose weight," but adds, "It's embarrassing working with skinny girls."
Hopefully Asher Roth can write a song or do something to comfort his girl.
