Júlia Pinheiro appears on television every day with a smile on her face, but she hid the family drama of living for many years with her twin daughters, Carolina and Matilda, who both had anorexia nervosa. In 2015, the problem with the health of young women was announced, when the first one was hospitalized. In a conversation with Manuel Luis Josha in 2016, he said, “Parents are never ready for their children’s illness. Anorexia is a disease that has made everyone in the house sick. We are starting to live under a plate dictatorship.”
Matilda was the first to be diagnosed with this disorder. At the same time, he said, “Matilde’s case broke out when she was 12 years old. (…) She already had an advanced case of anorexia nervosa.” When Mathilde was already showing improvements, it was Carolina’s turn to confront the disease, and she was eventually hospitalized.
In early July, when health problems seemed to be a thing of the past, Julia Pinheiro frightened her daughter Carolina again, when she found out she had tested positive for Covid-19. “Julia’s daughter has general symptoms: body aches, fever, etc …,” Vedas told a source close to the presenter, who had to remain in protective isolation.
