We're used to celebrities offering juicy, candid titbits from their lives when they're promoting a movie or otherwise want some press, but Demi Lovato took things to a whole new level by dropping a major truth bomb during last night's Stay Strong special — namely that she still struggles with self-harm and bulimia. "I cannot tell you that I have not thrown up since treatment. I cannot tell you that I have not cut myself since treatment. I'm not perfect," she said. Undergoing treatment in 2010, the singer recalls looking in the mirror and not liking what she saw, adding that as recently as Thanksgiving she was on the phone to her sponsor so that she wouldn't throw up the meal. "An addiction is an obsession, something that takes over your mind and your every thought," she said. "You think that you can't live without it. For me, it was not eating and purging and self-harming." Kudos for being brave enough to share, but let's hope she's getting all the help she needs. [E!]

Struggling with an eating disorder isn't the easiest thing in the world. But you know what's worse? Being outed for having one publicly at the age of 14, according to Christina Ricci. "Somebody actually found out about it and outed me while I was recovering," she said. "It was a horrifying thing to do to a 14-year-old trying to cope with a devastating illness." I'll bet. [Radar]
Christina also says she wouldn't be 20 again if you paid her, likening the period to being in a "hurricane." I totally co-sign that, being in your 20s is the worst. [US]

Sorry to be the one to break it to you, but approximately 99.3 per cent of stories written about Jennifer Aniston aren't actually true. However, news of her losing herself in a relationship to the detriment of her female friendships sounds plausible – but maybe because we've been conditioned to think about her in such a way. Anywhocares, Courteney Cox is allegedly pissed because of it. "Jennifer's priorities have obviously changed since meeting Justin," says someone. "But Courteney must feel that Jen has completely forgotten what it's like to be the single girl and that will hurt given how supportive she and David were to Jen over the years." [Daily Mail]
Maybe Courteney can hang out with David Arquette again now that he's broken up with his girlfriend. [Contact Music]

Paps might not be the brightest sparks but I'm willing to give them a pass for mistaking Debbie Harry, 66, for Lindsay Lohan, 25, when she left the Mercer Hotel on Sunday. Linds was photographed leaving the hotel a couple days prior and the images (at the link) are mighty convincing. How did we not see this before? [E!]

Me and my best friend went to go see New York Minute the day it opened. When we were high school seniors. We were easily the oldest in the theater. But I don't care, that movie was awesome.
