Snarky Brides

Has anyone else seen this trash? (Marie Claire blog)

http://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/dating-blog/overweight-couples-on-television

I am just...wow, I don't know. But personally, I'd rather be a fattie with my rolls, than a skinny jerkoff bitch like this lady.

  • It's all over the nest.  It makes me cringe, big time.  And her 'apology' is such bull.  I can't control how people think, but it upsets me that someone thinks an opinion like this should be published.  And seriously, an anorexic telling people that fat people should be able to control their eating?  Not everyone has as much self control as you do, darlin.

  • Yeah, I'm shocked they would have even put this out there.  I think it's a double-edged sword right now that people are trying to figure out what healthy means because everyone famous is too big or too small, but to say that you're grossed out to watch a fat person walk across the room has no grounds.  At least she apologized (I guess) but this is just ridiculous.
  • Yeah her apology was crap. And she only apologized because of all the backlash Marie Claire was getting. I feel pretty confident in saying she isn't remorseful or sorry about what she wrote.
  • Yeah I saw this on the news this morning. I think this article is utterly ridiculous.

  • Whoa, that's just disgusting.  And I'm sorry, but that apology means absolutely nothing.

    Oh, definitely.  No one could write something that strongly worded and not mean every hateful bit of it.

  • We are a weird country, between the obsession with thin on the one hand and the fact that few of us look like that on the other. I know that a large part of my self esteem is connected to my body because of it, and that's not doing me any good right now.

    [QUOTE]I especially liked the part where she stated that models aren't anorexic anymore, they're all just naturally thin.  WTF?
    Posted by jcbsjr[/QUOTE]

    Yes, because being 6' tall and weighing only 90lbs. just happens to be a common occurence among women. Of course.
  • That was disturbing. I don't know what Marie Claire is (a magazine, I guess? Online blog?) but I doubt she meant her apology. Like PP said, you can't write that and not know that you're going to offend people, or that you came off as a pretentious skinny bitch (is she skinny? I didn't look for a picture).

    Woooooow. Obviously she was out of line. But you want to know what really pisses me off? That this sophomoric bitch has a job writing at a magazine, a HUGE magazine in fact, when she clearly has no writing talent, a limited vocabulary, no understanding of op-ed journalism and works for some hack editor to boot while I sit in my cubicle tinkering with spreadsheets after years of looking for a job like that. I hope she collapses walking across the room b/c her bones and muscles are so damaged for her years of anorexia and a fatty like me steps on her.

    Seriously? what a pompous whore. I don't buy that apology either. Just wow. I watched Mike and Molly for the first time the other night, and loved it! It didn't weird me out at all.
  • This article makes me sick! How heartless and self righteous must this woman be? And what editor actually approved this article to be published? I hope she and her editor are being punished.

    Her apology is crap. She's more so defending her original comments than apologizing for them. Very few things really offend me any more these days (probably because I'm so desensitized to things) but this really, really upsets me. What a mean, sad individual to write things like that.
  • As a plus-size girl, I found her article offensive.  If you don't like to see plus-size people making out - don't watch the shows where you might be see it!  Her mea culpa was just stupid.  Definitely written to save face for Marie Claire.

    It's a magazine, put it up there with other mags like Cosmo and Glamour.

    I work in the publishing industry as a copy editor and while I might complain about how bad some of our writers are, we don't have any that are as ill-informed and stupid as this woman.

    Ah, yeah I go straight for the cooking magazines and Woman's World-types, so I never see any fashion or girly-related magazines (except for the occasional Cosmo).

    I've never heard of Mike & Molly, but now I want to see it. I need a good new sitcom to watch.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Has anyone else seen this trash? (Marie Claire blog) : don't hold back kcullen :) But I agree with you.  Did you read her bio on the right hand side of the page?  <strong>Aww, she's never found love, and now she's blogging about it?! Poor girl, life must be so hard for her.</strong>  <strong>Maybe if she dropped the attitude she might have more luck.

    Plus her outside matches her inside, she's pretty fugly.

  • I have nothing new to add but I would like to punch her in the face, tie her up and make her watch me eat cupcakes... MMmmmmm cupcakes.  But I digress, either her editor is an a-hole for allowing this to be published or they knew it would create backlash and atleast it's getting Marie Claire some free advertising.

    Ok...I had to laugh at the photo caption:

    Maura Kelly has a unique job—she blogs about her dating life for <a href="http://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/dating-blog/" rel="nofollow">www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/dating-blog/</a>" target="new"><font color="#0082fe">Marie Claire</font>. Her column, “A Year of Living Flirtatiously,” is a frank, humorous, self-deprecating account of her travails on the front lines of dating. The project started when Kelly realized that if she approached finding a man with as much zeal as she approached finding a job, she might find the man of her dreams. <strong>So far, no such luck</strong>, but here she shares with The Frisky her best dating advice, the weirdest date she’s been on thus far, and why what men really want is to be treated like a woman.

    ::gasp:: imagine that!

  • I really hate fake apologies. We already know that's how she feels. No amount of backpedaling is going to make me unsee what I read.

    I'd like to sit on her and force feed her some butter

  • It would be hilarous if people started emailing her fat porn. Just some gratuitous scenes of flesh just slappin'--I bet she'd have a heart attack on the spot.

    Yes! BBW to the rescue!
  • Fake apologies bug me even more when it's accompanied by the person saying, "oh, I had no idea this would upset people, of course I'm sensitive to the plight of X".  No, you're not, you hosebeast.  If you were, you would have never felt the inclination to write it in the first place. And you knew exactly what kind of a reaction you would get, don't play dumb blonde with me.

    Douche.
