Fear not, worried fans: Shep Smith has admitted he's too skinny.
The Fox News star's appearance has suddenly become a hot topic. After HuffPost wrote about Smith's rapturous recap of a lunch he'd had at the White House, many commenters on the site and elsewhere pointed out his rather gaunt appearance in distressed tones. Some worried whether he was going through a bout with illness.
Luckily, Smith took to the New York Daily News to clear things up.
“I’ve lost too much,” he told the paper. He said that a health scare (he was told he had out-of-control cholesterol and high blood pressure) forced him to cut down on his junk food intake and exercise.
Smith didn't say what he was planning to do to pack on a few extra pounds.
