A Gospel Singer Slims Down & Comes Out

    There are things that are earth shattering as you get older.  Developing who you are as a person in public usually  happens when you are a teenager. When you do it in midlife it  opens up brand new doors. Coming out isn’t the easiest process. So imagine how challenging it would be if you grew up in a Pentecostal Holiness church, were a preacher’s kid and belonged to an award-winning gospel group with your siblings.

    This was DeJuaii Pace’s reality and factored into why she ignored her same-sex attraction for so long. In fact, the 45-year-old, who’s also a virgin, never discussed her lesbianism with her family, including her eight sisters — seven of whom, along with her, make up gospel’s the Anointed Pace Sisters. That changed during a taping of the new OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network show Addicted to Food, which premieres Tuesday night.

    Pace, a compulsive overeater, is one of eight eating disorder patients (both over- and under-eaters) at treatment facility Shades of Hope in Buffalo Gap, Texas. With the help of therapists, the patients try to find the root of their food addiction, heal it and become mentally and physically healthier.
