Ashley: (about her sister's 2004 eating disorder drama) That situation was more about how destructive the media can be to a person emotionally, to their identity, and their public persona. It's really sick, if you ask me. I know when Mary-Kate's hurting, I know when she's going through something. I know when she's happy. Whether I'm with her or not, I know. We both carry the weight of each other. When she's doing really well, maybe I'm not doing so well. We just kind of balance each other out.
