Inspired by pro-wrestler, Mary Elizabeth Monroe, Michelle takes on the tough topic of athletes who suffer from eating disorders.  Whose fault is it?  The coach, the parent, society in general or is there something deep within the individual athlete that compells them to self destruct?    Mary Elizabeth Monroe, will join both Rich and Michelle, to share her thoughts on this very important social issue plaguing many athletes.
