Love your show with Clinton! You are a very sweet person. Knew she battled an eating disorder but I did not know about her skin problems. She is very beautiful

Psoriasis can effect anyone and when you see it you can wrongly associate it with no being clean. Very untrue. This is the embarrassing stereotype people suffering from this disease deal with every day. A very cruel disease to have to deal with in school when kids can be quick to judge
