I did not get through all the thread yet. But this gal is my hero.
I have often wanted to look someone dead in the eye and say, Gee thanks for that. It isn't like I have to look in the mirror or try to buy clothes, but needed someone to point that out for me that I am fat.
And yes, I think the guy needed to be called on the table about it. Too many people make the internet a way to lose all manners. I would never think about going up to someone and telling them that they were fat. But apparently, telling someone in an email is fine.
Plus I liked her comment to the fact that he even said that he didn't watch the show (just turned it on).
Also, the guy then mentioned something about losing weight on air to be a role model. You know, cause it worked out so well for Oprah.
Yes, she is MUCH more than some number on a scale.
I think the best article about this was this gentleman. http://www.mercurynews.com/entertainment/ci_21699714/hicks-wisconsin-news-anchor-who-stood-up-her
