Please stop lying to me

A friend and I had a conversation this weekend about celebrities and their lies.
We are tired of it.  If I hear one more celebrity say they eat doughnuts and
chocolate all the time and hardly ever work out I'm going to march myself
straight to Beverly Hills and give these women a piece of my mind.

Please stop the madness.
There is no way you have muscle tone if the only time you're "working out"
is when you're getting frisky in the sheets, Cameron Diaz.
And while we're on the subject of uber skinny celebrities...

The fashion world needs to wake up and realize that being a size 0 is an
extremely unrealistic ideal size.  If I see one more gaunt, anorexic woman
walk down the runway I will trip her. And then she will break in two because
there is nothing supporting that skeletal system.

Seeing clothing lines aimed at young girls only makes me more ill thinking about
how these young women are seeing these emaciated bodies modeling the clothing.
If I had a daighter, or even a son, I would be frightfully scared of what they think is
a "normal" body type.  I can remember being in high school, not even weighing 100 lbs
and thinking how fat I looked compared to the models.  If I could go back in time,
I would slap my 17 year-old self across the face for having that thought cross my mind.

So, this has kind of turned more into a rant than anything...But I couldn't help
but get this off of my chest.  I just want young women today to see how beautiful
they are and to stop comparing themselves to these waif-like figures.

I also want celebrities to be real about what their eating.
Don't tell me you're eating cake and cookies and hardly ever hitting the gym.
Be real.  Just admit you eat 500 calories a day and go to the gym twice a day.
That's all I'm asking.

If you've made it to the end of this post, thanks for putting up with me :)


  1. Just throwing you a huge AMEN! Thank you- I completely agree 100%! And yes, I want to go back in time and drop-kick myself for thinking I was fat. ;)

  2. I totally agree! I'm not sure when this happened. My daughter and I just watched Some Like it Hot! over the weekend. Marilyn Monroe was absolutely stunning! She is not a small gal. She cannot be called skinny. But pretty much everyone can agree -- she had it going on. Where has that appreciation gone??

  3. oh so with you. i saw an interview with blunt that said she ate a croissant before an award show and i was like please!!

  4. Great post !! I agree with you 100 percent!

  5. I totally agree with you! Here in Spain they don't accept models whose weith is under a reasonable limit. But last summer one of our beautiful models wasn't accepted in Milan, Italy. She wears an M size and she looks amazing! We want to see new clothes in bodies like ours!

  6. Okay, I found your blog through's blog and you just won me over! I am totally following you. :)

  7. i totally agree. its just sick and wrong. i think curves are way prettier than super skinny girls. that last picture is truly just disgusting!


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I always love hearing from my readers!
