    Its pretty disappointing, I thought it was going to be like a fly on the wall type show, its not, its all scripted. Im not even sure if her family and friends in it are real or actors. Theyve wasted a great opportunity to show a really inspiring programme :mad:

    Ah had no idea it was scripted but still, she was in the Brookhaven Clinic weighing more than seven hundred pounds and she believes 100% that she is addicted to food and that Brookhaven is essentially rehab for other food addicts, many of whom are near death.

    Ruby Gettinger at Brookhaven Obesity Clinic - Video - Oprah.com

    The truth of addiction to food and its consequences to sufferers and their families is made plain in the above clip from Oprah.

    I think poor Georgia needs specialist help, and fast. Would be great if there were a Brookhaven-style clinic here in the UK. At least then she and others might have a fighting chance.

    ps if I have posted about this twice, sorry. my laptop is playing up and I cannot access the prevous page on this thread! I cannot check to find out if that other post was successful.

    I think having it unscripted would make for much better tv wonder what the thought behind scripting it wad
