"Girls out there are dangerously anorexic," Carlton wrote Dec. 31 on her Bravo blog. "So yes, Joyce, you can be too thin if you're promoting anorexia. Be responsible. Wrong message."

Gebbia was responding to Giraud's comment on the latest episode of the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" that "You can't be too thin." The remark is also Joyce's tagline for the show's intro.

Giraud, a former Miss Puerto Rico, made the comment while trying on dresses for co-star Kyle Richards' fashion show. The size-zero Joyce had lamented that all the dresses she had tried on (including the extra-small sizes) were too big for her.

Giraud's nemesis, the equally skinny Brandi Glanville, also slammed Joyce for sending the wrong message to fans about body image.

Glanville, a former model and author of Drinking and Dating, said Giraud is perpetuating the idea that being scary-skinny is beautiful, when in reality it's dangerous and unhealthy.

"Joyce saying you never be too thin really bothered me, because in fact you can," said Brandi. "Young women have enough problems with eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia, and then to have an ex-beauty queen perpetuate that one can never be to thin is just wrong."
