Everything Rhymes With Alcohol

Legally Fat

Posted on: July 14, 2009

Your Dirty Answer gave me the push for this post.

FAT is IN This TV Season.

There’s Fox’s romance reality show More to Love where a plus size man dates some plus sized women, bachelor style.

Oxygen’s Dance Your Ass Off

Bringing dance and diet together, Dance Your Ass Off features talented, full-figured contestants who will have to lose to win. Each contestant is paired with a professional dance partner who will train him or her for weekly stage performances — ranging from Hip Hop, to Ballroom and even Pole Dancing! Then they shake and rattle their rolls in front of a live studio audience and a panel of expert judges. The judges score the routines, and then the contestants weigh in to reveal their weekly weight loss. The dance score and the weight loss are combined for an overall score, which determines who is sent home each week.

Last, but so very far from least Lifetime’s offering, Drop Dead Diva

See, I am all for seeing people of all shapes & sizes on tv living their lives like lots of the thinner TV folk do: dancing, dating, lawyering. Cool. However, I’m not optomistic nor hopeful about how these shows will portray them as actually non-freakish, positive, happy, life-that-doesn’t-revolve-around-food, well adjusted folks.

I can’t say too much about the first two. More To Love doesn’t air until later this month & I don’t have Oxygen, but the last video for Drop Dead Diva–are you fucking kidding me? I have no urge to see this at all. Not even for the possible turnaround. They have so thoroughly turned me off with the “fat as punishment” (AND beauty=vapid) what about the fat girl’s soul? did she just deserve to totally die of fatness? that there’s no bait, just all hook..And it is stabbing the hell out of my hope.

Margret Cho! WTF ARE YOU DOING IN THIS STEAMING PILE?!

Also, they’re biting off of Legally Blonde super hard here. BIG TRANSPARENT BITE! I mean, “toe-tap and booty-bounce”? For reals? Witherspoon did the “bend & snap” way, way better.
