Katharine's Eating Disorders Started at a young age

She shared that her eating disorders started when she was just a teenager

The then 13-year-old began engaging in unhealthy food habits and worked out frequently. 

By the age of 17, she had developed bulimia nervosa. This entailed that she had been binge eating and vomiting the food out to avoid gaining weight. 

But this had an opposite effect on her which caused her to become heavier. 

She began receiving help from a rehabilitation program while also appearing on American Idol. 

Since then, she has been working towards curing her illness and getting healthier. 

Katharine used to be Scared with her Father Daniel

Daniel McPhee has worked in the film industry for a very long time. 

Some of the films/show that he is credited as a producer are Outlaws (1987), Legmen (1984), The Incredible Hulk Returns (1988), and Simon & Simon (1985-1986)

His work as a producer caused him to be absent from his daughter's childhood often. 

So, growing up, his daughter, Katharine, regarded him as fearsome and scary. She thought that Daniel was a distant and rude TV producer and not a beloved father.

But, Katharine revealed that her father's fears began to change as she grew up to be an adult. 

She could see his love and encouragement for her as she took every step in her life and considers him to be her biggest supporter.
