Casting 'Angels '88'

March 06, 1988

Are they going to take time out during an episode of Angels '88 to send the chic, sophisticated, 5-9, 120-pound Eurasian into an eating disorder hospital to deal with her bulimia?

It's frightening to think that the role models Aaron Spelling intends to create perpetuate the myth that in order for a young woman to be perceived as "intelligent, independent . . . vulnerable, sensitive, and bright," she has to be grossly underweight.

Young girls are throwing up and swallowing boxes of laxatives out of sheer desperation to be thin and my guess is so are some of the actresses Spelling's about to hire.
