She was below minimum, and died of essentially self-induced malnutrition, sometimes jocularioly called ( Starvicide) a blend word of starvation and suicide- in effect that is what it was. a psychological induced revulsion towards food- a related problem bears the slang term Chuck Horrors ( chuck, as in the western wagon, meaning Food). the term is accurate.Problem is confined almost entirely to young women.

Karen Anne Carpenter reached a height of five feet four inches tall. The fact that she was 5'4" tall did make it difficult to see her singing while she was seated behind her Ludwig drum set on stage.

How did Karen carpenter have grandchildren but not children?

Karen Carpenter did Not have any grandchildren. She had Godchildren. She was a Godparent, (Godmother) to some children. It a Christian tradition that people, other than the biological parents, can be Godparents to children, as selected by the biological parents. It's like saying someone is a co parent to the actual parent. It probably comes from a time when a person really needed their family to get by, because there were no social programs to fall back on. You probably heard, or read, that Karen Carpenter was a Godmother to some children, and misunderstood it to mean she was a grandmother to some children. Godfather, and Godmother, is a well respected term among Christians, and is not just associated with crime figures. Karen Carpenter never gave birth to any children, (her body afflicted with an eating disorder most of the time, did not even have menstrual periods during much of her adult life), she did not adopt children, and she did not have any grandchildren. She had Godchildren. She was a Godmother to some children.

Why didn't Richard Carpenter argue for the release of his sister Karen Carpenter's solo album in 1980 after A and M refused to sell it it was released in 1996?

Richard Lynn Carpenter did not like the songs on Karen Carpenter's solo album, [and he felt Phil Ramone's songs sounded too much like over dubbed Carpenters songs, (although Richard Carpenter was greatly influenced by the over dubbing of Les Paul and Mary Ford)]. Richard Carpenter did not do anything to keep the solo album from being released in 1980,however, he did not do anything, (on behalf of his sister), to get it released in 1980. He did spend some money and effort to get it finally released in 1996, sixteen years after it was first submitted to A & M for release, (and 13 years after Karen died on Feb. 4, 1983).

Why did Karen carpenter get a divorce?

Tom Burris left Karen Carpenter on October 1981 and they never saw her alive again, although they did talk over the phone between 1981 and 1982. Phone conversations which left Karen crying while she was on the phone and for a while after they hung up. As to the reason he left her, there are a lot of possible reasons, but, no outside person probably knows the real answer. Some possible reasons are: Karen was suffering from anorexia and it was too much for Burris to handle. He was having financial problems and he was not a very good at real estate development. They married in haste and they were not really meant for one another. She had a very busy work schedule and Burris wanted a stay at home wife. Burris Might have married Karen for her money. He was married before and his first marriage ended in divorce. After Karen died, almost all of her money went to her parents and her brother. A lot of Burris goods were repossessed after Karen died and he had to live with his 18 year old son.
