          Man Blames Ex-Wife For Twins’ Eating Disorders: ‘All They Want To Do Is Binge And Throw Up’


          October 12, 2016

          Vicky and Robert’s identical twin daughters Taylor and Tricia share everything; including identical eating disorders, which their parents say have resulted in the girls each losing over 50 lbs. apiece. Vicky and Robert – who are divorced – say they fear if their daughters don’t get help soon, they’ll be dead by the end of the year.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: At your final breaking point?

          Robert has said he blames his ex-wife “100 percent” for Taylor and Tricia’s eating disorders. “The girls have been with Vicky for the past two-and-a-half years, and now they’re disgusted with themselves. All they want to do is binge and throw up.”

          The twins’ father says he wants his daughters to live with him. “It’s time for me to take charge before something tragic happens.”

          Vicky says Robert has accused her of not feeding her children. “He thinks that they’re bingeing because they don’t know when they’re going to eat next – which is completely false.” She claims Robert doesn’t even acknowledge the extent of the girls’ illness. “He thinks they’re doing it for attention.”
