Sarah celebrates the High Holidays with a mazel of the day: inviting RHONJ star, lawyer, and author Jackie Goldschneider over to the cloffice, where they discuss her new book, The Weight of Beautiful, and of course, her experiences as a New Jersey Real Housewife.
They truly mentioned it all: the nuanced use of "recovery" when talking about eating disorders, Bravo's role in Jackie's treatment and recovery (and yes, rumors about Jackie’s friendships with Teresa and Marg), how control impacts sharing vulnerability on a public platform, a misconception that EDs include a beginning, middle, and end, how an obsession with weight loss injections has brought back a renewed focus on "thin" and weight loss as a competition (including in the NJ cast), trauma as a connective thread, and finding a way back to light.
If AG had a book club, this would be its companion listen - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 459!
TW: this episode includes discussion about eating disorders and body dysmorphia.
