'Dancing with the Stars' Lacey Schwimmer Defends Her "Big Butt"

| by Michael Allen

'Dancing With The Stars' professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer recently told In Touch magazine how proud she is of her curvy body.  Schwimmer, who is partnered with Chaz Bono this season, said: "I have boobs, I have a huge butt and I have a lot of muscle. I like having curves - I'm proud of them!"

Schwimmer faced criticism after stepping out in an unflattering pair of high-wasted jeans earlier this month.

"There's nothing I can do about except let it go and get over it!" said Schwimmer, who also spoke about her battle to conquer her eating disorder, which began when she was 13 and saw her drop to a size zero.

"My hair was falling out and my skin was gray. It was a really bad time."

At one point, she weighed just 98 pounds and would often survive on six slices of turkey a day while dancing for hours.  Today, she says that she's a size 4.

Schwimmer and Bono survived last night's elimination round on 'Dancing With The Stars' despite earning the lowest scores from the judges after Bono suffered a slip during a quickstep.
