The Jessica Simpson Epidemic

After years of slipping through the media cracks, Jessica Simpson is more famous now than ever. And why? The girl <gasp!> gained weight. I mean, think about it: what has J.

Trying to Understand the Curvy Girl Backlash

Duke It Out: Plus Size

In the last year or so there's been a big upswing in "awareness" about plus-size models. They've always been around, but they suddenly started getting a lot more attention for being their bold, beautiful selves.

More To Love, or More To Make Fun Of?

Ever since I heard about this "Bachelor for real people" I was intrigued. Having grown up overweight (and not had my first kiss until the ripe age of 18!), I really got behind a show that didn't focus on looks and really just gave everyone a chance at love. Or as much "love" as you can get by meeting someone through a reality show on Fox.
