"Can never be tiny enough lol."
Kate has also mentioned dieting, exercise, and what size she wears, multiple times, including on Twitter (even uploading photos of her salad dinners), and in interviews, and even on the show (last week she was complaining about full fat creamer and mentioned she is a size four).
Like it or not, whether Kate is just being herself on a reality show, she has become a role model for (some) young girls, just like this age group looks up to actresses who read scripts. Kate's constant obsession with discussing her weight, her diet, and eating habits, and her exercise routine, is a bad example for vulnerable young teen girls who should be focused on school, sports and friends--not their bodies. Reality T.V. stars, especially those popular with young people, need to have an awareness of their fanbase and an awareness of how what they are saying could influence a teenager. There is such a thing as too tiny and Kate should be aware of it--anorexic, bulimia, crash dieting, and poor body image run rampant among teenagers. Anyone in the public eye should guard what they say in this culture of body obsession.
