Selena Gomez Recovering After Health Scare – With Mom’s Help
Selena Gomez is well on the road to recovery after a health scare landed the young star in a Los Angeles hospital June 9. And the singer/actress says she has her mom to thank for her improving health.
Gomez fell ill after an appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” and received treatment at an area hospital for exhaustion and food poisoning. She blames the illness on poor eating habits, but says that her mom is helping her to make better decisions about eating:
”I do eat. The problem is I don’t eat right. I love everything that’s possibly not good for me.” Gomez said she’s trying to get her diet back on track and has a special someone — her mother — helping her out. “She’s definitely shoving vitamins down my throat and following me around,” she explained about the steps her “supermom” is taking to get her healthy again. “But at the same time, I was a stubborn kid, so I got to eat whatever I wanted. I have to have creamed spinach or cheese on my broccoli. I have to have something that makes it not healthy.”
When asked about her favorite foods, the young entertainer cited a laundry list of candy as her favorite treats: “I love M&M’s, Kit Kats, Snickers and Goobers at the movies,” she admitted.
Gomez made the comments a week after her trip to the hospital, on air with radio personality Kidd Kraddick in the Morning, and appeared to be well and healthy.
