WKBT anchor Jennifer Livingston briefly paused yesterday’s newscast to address a recent email she received from a
viewer bully complaining about her weight. The letter complained that Livingston’s weight was not setting a good example for “the community’s young people” and that she’s not a suitable candidate to be an on-air personality.
Livingston’s response was beautifully articulated and she turned it into something positive, by encouraging others to recognize October as National Anti-Bullying Month.
She said: “I will never be able to thank you enough for your words of support, and for taking a stand against this bully. We are better than that email. We are better than the bullies that will try to take us down.”
We’re really inspired by her message, which has since gone viral, even getting a tweet from Ellen Degeneres. Her message is not just for people who are bullied about their weight but for those who are taunted for a variety of things, whether it’s race, disabilities, acne — whatever.
Watch her message and pass it on! We want everyone to see this one.
Watch it here:
One of the first things we noticed when our Toshiba Z930s arrived were their shockingly light weight. Everyone in our office took turns holding it, amazed that something could be insanely portable and functional. Next, we started comparing it to some of the other computers in the office and we couldn’t figure out how to communicate its extreme light weight. Thus, Jordan and Casey took on the challenge. This is what they came up with.
Miley Cyrus has been showing off her rockin’ toned body lately. But after posting a photo of herself, some fans think the singer/actress may be taking her exercise regimen a bit too far.
Tweeting “Fiancé jeans. but for real though”, the star displays her tiny waste and jutting hip bones while wearing her fiancé Liam Hemsworth’s sweatpants.
But despite growing concerns that Miley has lost too much weight over the past few months, her personal trainer Mari Windsor has defended her by saying that “people need to chill out.”
“She’s healthy and she feels good, that’s the main thing,” Windsor said. “She’s smart about her body. She wanted to sculpt her body, that’s all.”
This isn’t the first time Miley has been under fire for her weight. Back in April, she was forced to defend herself.
“For everyone calling me anorexic, I have a gluten and lactose allergy,” Cyrus explained about her weight loss.
Come on, guys. While Miley has lost a lot of weight recently, it’s really not up to us to decide what’s healthy. People come in all different shapes and sizes. Who are we to judge what Miley’s body should look like? After all, we’re not even professional doctors.
What’s next on Snooki’s to do list? Well a breast job of course. Snooki dropped by E! to talk about the next season of “Jersey Shore,” and her tits came up in conversation.
Now that she’s down to 102 pounds, she thinks it’s the perfect time to get them done, and it’s happening “very soon, very soon.”
However, she isn’t getting them enlarged – more like getting them firmed up. “They’re a good size now, but I want them like this when I’m not wearing a bra,” she said, cupping and lifting her chest up.
This girl is absolutely nuts. It’s going to be fun/sad to see her blow through all her money “very soon, very soon.”
“Jersey Shore’s” Snooki tweeted a picture of her new hairstyle the other day. The new look is certainly a departure from her previous look.
“I went mega red! My @BradleyStyleNYC is genius,” Polizzi wrote to fans with a picture attached to the Tweet, which mentioned her stylist.
This is just another drastic change in Snooki’s appearance. Over the past few months, Snooki has also dropped a ton of weight, slimming down to her “ideal weight.”
So does she look better or worse than before?
Snooki took to Twitter to share some pictures of her figure. The MTV star shared various angles of her new slender look.
Snooki is celebrating after she reached her ideal weight of 98lbs. She has been battling weight problems and an eating disorder for many years.
Pollizi also snapped some Christmas pics with her on and off again boyfriend, Jionni LaValle.
The big question remains – how did Snooki drop that much weight so quickly? Granted she has a personal trainer, but that’s a dangerous amount of weight lost. Do you think there is more to her weight loss than just exercise?
Snooki tweeted a photo of her new body this week. No question, this Jersey Shore star has lost a ton of weight, and she is looking a bit better (although she is still kind of annoying).
Nevertheless, you can’t help but be a little concerned about how much weight she has dropped in such a short period of time. Yes, she has said she is watching her diet and working with a personal trainer, but there must be something else going on.
What do you think? Is Snooki’s weight loss from hard work or is Snooki starving herself?
Kelly Osbourne and Christina Aguilera continue to fight like two brats on the playground.
In a recent appearance on E! Fashion Police, former Dancing with the Stars contestant Kelly Osbourne called Aguilera a “fat bitch”.
Kelly then continued to make fun of the singer’s appearance during last week’s Michael Jackson Tribute Concert. Aguilera sported fishnet tights, heavy makeup and super-sized hair on stage, a.k.a. generic popstar wardrobe.
According to Kelly in US Magazine, Christina started it!
“She called me fat for so many f***ing years, so you know what? F**k you! You’re fat too,” Kelly said.
It seems we need an andPOP referee to come in and settle this once and for all: You’re both putting on weight! And, putting on weight after a baby or after undergoing major career changes is normal! Neither of you are morbidly obese so either can it or prepare to be canned by everyone else. Think of the young girls that look up to you. Would you want them growing up with body image issues?
Snooki tweeted a pic of her new body and she looks super skinny. Perhaps she’s too skinny?
It’s worrisome that Snooks has dropped a considerable amount of weight in such a short time span. Do you think she is working very hard on her body, or doing something dangerous to control her weight?
And do you think she looks better or worse?
Like her or not, Jersey Shore’s Snooki has been shedding some weight recently. And RadarOnline is reporting Snooki is telling her secrets.
Snooki credits the weight loss to diet aid Zantrex-3 Fat Burner, and also a careful exercise regime. Snooki claims to be hitting the gym with a personal trainer a few times a week.
According to Zantrex’s website, “we’re talking about rapid, sustained weight loss and extreme energy, finally together in one power-packed super pill… 5 times more weight loss than the leading ephedrine-based diet pill and all the energy you’ll ever want or need… day or night.”
So how did she put on a few healthy pounds? “Now, I eat a bit of everything,” she told Amica magazine, adding that she still trains three times a week with Pasternak. ”No bread, no sugar and coffee. But I had lost too much weight.”
In March, Fox’s trainer Harley Pasternak addressed the actress’ then super-slim physique. “Believe it or not she has this really fast metabolism,” he told Hollywoodlife.com. “With her it’s really about she’s eating enough of the right things. People thought ‘Oh she must be anorexic,’ but she’s far from that!”
So how did she put on a few healthy pounds? “Now, I eat a bit of everything,” she told Amica magazine, adding that she still trains three times a week with Pasternak.
“I puke quite a lot before going on stage,” said the 23-year-old Grammy winner. “Though never actually on stage.” While some might consider the pre-show jitters troublesome, she took it as good sign – explaining, “But then, I s**t myself before everything … The bigger the freak-out, the more I enjoy the show!”
And in regards to her weight issues?
“I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down,” she said. “And I don’t want that in my life … I have insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”
“I didn’t even know I was considered plus-sized until I came to Hollywood,” the 2007 Oscar winner and Weight Watchers spokesperson, 29, tells September’s Self magazine, on sale Thursday. “I thought I was the perfect size!”
That changed when “an interviewer asked, ‘How does it feel to be plus-sized in Hollywood?’ I looked around, like, Who is she talking to? Oh, me? I’m plus-sized? In the neighborhood I’m from in Chicago, a 16 is normal. But in Hollywood, everyone looks exactly the same, so I stood out.”
Hudson credits her weight loss to sticking to a diet and constant excercise. Hudson says, ”I’m prouder of my weight loss than my Oscar!”
“I’ve been working out and eating healthier and it feels great,” she told Ahlanlive. “I’ve been doing Pilates to help keep my body toned, and cardio in the gym. I’m also eating a lean diet with lots of organic fruit, veggies and vitamin juices. I have so much energy.”
Paris also commented about people saying she has become fat.
“All girls worry about their weight and I’m no different, except for the fact that when I gain a pound the whole world thinks I’m fat.”
Is Selena Gomez Going to put on Weight? Well if her career ever takes a tumble and she is no longer in the spotlight, inevitably that will happen as her new career will have an impact on her eating habits.
She told Buzz Magazine: “I’d love to open my own bakery, I can’t bake but I’d like to open one and have people bake for me and get really fat!” Doesn’t sound much like work to us. In fact it sounds like heaven.”
This would certainly be a huge change in her physique. But if diabetes and unhealthy lifestyle make her happy – then go ahead Selena!
Ferrara claims it was simply ”changing my lifestyle.” He told Us Weekly that ”it’s been a year and a half of just very slowly eating well and working out,” he said. “Nothing drastic. Very slow and gradual.”
And what can fans expect in the upcoming season of Entourage? “It’s just going back to like traditional season one Entourage style with some evolution,” he told Us.
Puppies, toddlers, and other innocent people wept yesterday as Radar Online reported the worst possible scenario that could have occurred on planet earth has indeed happened: Lady GaGa has put on, like, maybe five pounds.
Gagaloo’s fans noticed her extra padding during a concert in Norway as a part of her Monster’s Ball tour. Though her costumes, music and showmanship have not changed in the slightest, the event seemed to be missing one element – Mother Monster’s washboard lady-abs.
Could we get serious for a moment? The chart-topping wunderkind has been hospitalized six times in the past for dangerous dieting habits. The woman has more hit records than you have fingers. She’s a fashion icon. She puts all of her money back into her performances. And, most of all, she’s passionate about everything she touches. COULD SOMEONE CUT THE GIRL SOME SLACK, PLEASE?!
We’re not huge GaGa fans, but this is ridiculous. Remember the meat dress? You loved the meat dress, internet! Bring that love back.
TMZ reports Acaisupply.com is outraged with how “South Park” depicted Snooki and her weight issues. So in exchange for a glowing testimonial about their weight loss product, Acaisupply.com is prepared to offer Snooki a cut of the profits.
However, the letter sent to Snooki from the company calls her “overweight.” Snooki may take that comment the wrong way as she has suffered problems with anorexia in the past, and almost died from it.
So what do you think? Is Acaisupply.com a shining example of a caring and generous corporate citizen? Or a company trying to profit off someone’s insecurities?
Our gut feeling is 50 Cent will suck in this movie. If you remember his role in “Get Rich or Die Tyin’” it wasn’t what we would consider an award winning performance. Although we are sure he put 100% of his effort into the role, the guy is a rapper/businessman, not an actor.
However you can’t question his dedication to the acting craft. As reported by PEOPLE, 50 Cent has altered his physical appearance drastically for his upcoming role as a cancer stricken football player. 50 has dropped more than 50 lbs. – slimming down from 214 to 160. As you can see in the photo, he looks drastically different!
Because 50 is trying so hard, we hope his upcoming acting role is a success. However we also believe people should stick to what they are good at. 50 is a rapper, not an actor.
This move by Simpson aligns with her natural beauty mantra. It also fits well for her new VH1 show “The Price of Beauty.” Quite frankly we don’t think she looks bad – she looks like a real person.
Jessica suffered through a weight controversy last year which changed her view on her appearance. “I don’t have anything to prove anymore,” she told the mag. “What other people think of me is not my business.”
