The Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa is known for her gorgeous face and stunning figure, as well the confidence she exudes on the show. While the housewife appears to have it all these days – not counting her current role in one of the franchise’s most epic feuds ever, that is – confidence wasn’t always so abundant for the Polish beauty. In fact, her low self-esteem and lack of confidence led to an eating disorder in her early 20s that nearly ruined her.
In a recent interview with People magazine, Joanna opened up about her past struggles with weight, revealing an addiction to laxatives to keep her model figure. “I gained weight and struggled to lose it quickly in order to pursue my dreams of being a model,” the 34-year old reality star says. “Being 20 years old, I had no idea how to lose weight fast and laxatives were an easy way out.” It may have been an easy way to drop weight, but it was also very dangerous, which Joanna recognized just in time. “Thank God I didn’t hurt myself and stopped,” she says.
Laxatives are no longer the go-to for The Real Housewives of Miami star to stay slim. These days, Joanna does it the healthy way, through proper diet and exercise, which have definitely paid off.Love her or hate her – as a few of the other Housewives do – you gotta admit the girl is hot. It’s obvious the general public agrees too, as Joanna has a 2014 wall calendar coming out that will be showing plenty of skin. And before anyone says anything about her being vain or stroking her own ego, let me point out that the proceeds from the calendar sales are going to a good cause. Joanna is an active supporter of a number of animal rights groups, and Angels for Animal Rescue will be getting a nice payout as a result of the calendar.
