Celebrities and Diet

Ok, so US weekly was a week late delivery my new magazine this week so instead I got 2 on one day so forgive me if I am a little late on my updates.

Last week covers featured the headline “Rosie and Kirstie: Diet War!” Hmmmm, neither name makes me jump right to the page. As I’m browsing through the pictures for my first browse, I notice Lindsey Lohan and Laguna Beach Alum Kristin Cavalleri in bathing suits side by side to a 30 lbs heavier image of themselves. Bravo US weekly for showing us what Lindsey Lohan looks like 30 pounds heavier. Hopefully the technology was cheaper than searching your photo archives to the Spring of 2005. Cavalleri looks like she gained the freshmen 15 but wait, US weekly doesn’t have that photo because she dropped out of college after a couple of weeks or something.

Anyway, the article is about how Rosie O’Donnell called out Kirstie Allie for lying about her actual weight. As many of you have commented on my blog when I wrote about her appearance on “Oprah,” she clearly is not 145 pounds like she claimed she was. At 5 foot 7, she should look more like a size 6. There is no covering up your thighs when you wear a bikini on Oprah. I think she looks good, but why is she lying, especially on a show where the Host publicly has battled weight issues her whole life? US weekly decided to give us pictures of women in Hollywood who are 145 pounds, and women who aren’t that look to be the same size as Kirstie. Then they showed us what Lohan and KCavalleri would look like if they were 145 lbs (which I still think is hilarious).

Bottom Line: Women in Hollywood lie about their age, weight and what they eat. Don’t compare yourself to them because you never know what is and is not true.


@ 7:31pm ET on November 27, 2006 That's true, Hollywood women do lie. It's upseting when you're inspired by someone because they did a great job, only to find out they lied. Your best bet is to look within yourself.
@ 8:13pm ET on November 27, 2006 Yeah, there's no way she's 145 pounds. At 5'9", I weigh just 3 pounds more, and trust me, she has to weigh more than that. It's frustrating because she's supposedly acting as a role model for all of us women who are battling our weight, and then she's dishonest. We all have to start being honest about our bodies and enjoying what we have. Personally, I love telling people that I'm 148 pounds and wearing a size 6-8. Nobody believes you : )
@ 12:43am ET on November 29, 2006 I'm 5'7'' and currently weigh 143 and I sure don't look like that!
