In her new book Bite Me, Ally Hilfiger—star of the seminal MTV reality show Rich Girls, daughter of Tommy Hilfiger, and sufferer of chronic Lyme disease—describes a moment in which she served her father a platter of poop.


In an interview with Page Six, Hilfiger, discussing the time leading up to her Lyme diagnosis, says, “For about a month I started to unravel and it was basically a psychotic breakdown caused by the Lyme disease entering my brain and the stress of the TV show [MTV’s 2003 “Rich Girls”] and parents divorcing. He [Tommy] didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t even function. It was crazy, it was so intense.”

“I kept telling [my dad] that I was sick,” she continues. “He wasn’t getting the message. I got out of bed, grabbed a silver tray off a table, went into the bathroom, defecated on it, and handed it to him. ‘You gotta get this tested,’ I said.”

Yes. Yes. We’ve certainly all been there.

During the Page Six interview, Hilfiger also puts the blame for some of her more exceptional Rich Girls moments on Lyme disease.

“I had full-on Lyme brain and didn’t even know it,” she says. “I started to say things that I knew were incorrect but couldn’t stop, like, ‘My dad invented cargo pants.’ What? What the hell was I thinking? That ended up being one of the main things people like to make fun of me for saying.”

As someone who may, right at this second have lyme disease (thanks hoarde of deer ticks that fed on my flesh, I ONLY WANTED TO SEE THE NATURE RESERVE);

1. There is no such thing as chronic lyme disease. There is just perminant damage from having it for too long and

2. I question if these ‘celebrities’ who claim chronic lyme disease have ever even been in a situation where you could possibly catch it. I mean seriously.
