Do you think it’s only the common folk like you and me who live with IBD and/or IBS? Think again. Here are 11 female celebrities with IBD or IBS.

We live in a celebrity-obsessed culture.

Because we’re so obsessed, US Weekly likes to remind us in each issue that “Stars are Just Like Us!”

For today, how about we take note of those (female) celebrities who are not at all kind of just like us ->  those who struggle with IBD and/or IBS.

11 Female Celebrities with IBD or IBS

Tyra Banks: Anxiety + IBS

Cynthia McFadden: Crohn’s Disease

Kirsten Dunst: IBS

Shannen Doherty: Crohn’s Disease

Camille Donatacci (Gammer): IBS

Amy Brenneman: Colitis

Elizabeth Hasselback: Celiac

Jennifer Esposito: Celiac

Carrie Grant: Crohn’s Disease

Jenny McCarthy: IBS

Anastacia: Crohn’s Disease

And these are just 11. There are so many more celebrities that live with these conditions.

And Us

At the end of the day, stars are really nothing like us. But, when it comes to IBD and/or IBS, they simply will not discriminate against you nor I nor any beautiful, amazing, talented, rich female celebrity out there.

In case you’ve never had the chance to check it out, you can read about our own stories with IBS and/or IBD.
