Oprah Should Stay Fat

Oprah is upset that she's gained weight. She's 200 pounds. What she doesn't realize is that the only person who really cares about her weight is her. And the media. The media loves this confession and has leaped all over it.

Huffington Post has a great article about this. We love Oprah, the article says, because of her weight:

Because if anyone has a pass on the rule that says women on TV have to be skeletal, it's Oprah Winfrey. Her heft is part of her appeal. It's an oft-quoted statistic that the average American woman is size 12 or larger. O looks to be about a 16-18 at the moment. And nobody's turning her show off because of that.

You hear that? Oprah, you have bounded past the expectation that women need to be skin and bones to be on television.

We accept you the way you are. We love you at a size 12-16. Its time you do the same.
