Make It Or Break It returned last night for its big spring premiere, and I thought it was fantastic. One of the big story lines this season (and the end of last) is Kaylie’s eating disorder. Last season, I was a little surprised to see the show go down this path. But after speaking with Holly Sorensen (the show’s creator and Executive Producer), I realized that on a show about elite gymnastics, it is important to address an issue that is prevalent in the sport. I recently had the chance to talk to Josie Loren, who plays Kaylie. She, of course, did not have to lose weight for the show (it’s all done in makeup and special effects), but had a lot of interesting things to say about her character (and preparing for the eating disorder), the upcoming season and a scene they shot that made her and her cast-mates cry.
