  1. 1

    food appears to be her new drug of choice



  2. 2

    LOL have you NOT Seen celebrity rehab/sober house?! youre SHOCKED?!!



  3. 3

    gross



  4. 4

    who is Nikki McGibbon????



  5. 5

    it is a medical conditional called not using coke anymore.



  6. 6

    Oh wow…I didn't really know her so I had to Google her, but ya, she kinda did get a wee bit bigger.



  7. 7

    wow. she looks so different



  8. 8

    wait isnt she the girl who just got off drugs?
    if so then thats obviously the reason. and its pretty crude to talk shit about her weight :( dont be an ass perez you are so much cuter when ur nice :)



  9. 9

    what the hell?!? how could that be the same perosn, she looks like she doubled in size…



  10. 10

    She just came from the trailer park.



  11. 11

    Well, she's had kids and drug and alcohol problems. That's probably it. But, I'm not a doctor so I wouldn't know.



  12. 12

    um perez it was a result of being a druggie and then recovering… that makes people gain weight.



  13. 13

    Holy fuck-nugget Batman…Wow i really feel badly for the poor thing!!



  14. 14

    Did you see celebrity rehab? Better some food than some smack! I think she looks great :)



  15. 15

    She's had kids. I gained weight when I had my daughter.



  16. 16

    It's because she's no longer on the coke diet! It's mean to assume someone is fat because of a medical condition. Everyone knows it's just cause they're lazy.

  18. 18

    Holy fuck-nugget Batman..i really feel bad for the poor thing!!!

    holy hell! poor girl.



  20. 20

    DAYUMMM! Girl done gone and got some lovin or something. Maybe laying off the booze and drugs packed em on.



  21. 21

    .
    .
    McKibbin looks like she's had a few to many McRib sandwiches!
    .
    .
    Where's Herman Melville when you need him?

  22. 22

    more like not doing blow anymore…



  23. 23

    didn't know who she was. Checked out her picture on her website. She was pretty. Wonder why she gained so much weight. Hope she doesn't have a medical problem, that's a big weight gain.



  24. 24

    I think she's coming off some sort of drug/alcohol problem



  25. 25

    she's in recovery….its natural to gain weight. be nice…and proud of her :)



  26. 26

    That's what a drug addiction and rehab will do to you. Did you forget about that already? Ts ts ts, Mario…



  27. 27

    It is probably due to getting clean off of drugs, coke addicts tend to gain alot of weight when they get clean. Hopefully she'll get back into shape, however I'd rather see her clean than skinny. I hope all of the comments all over the internet today don't cause her to use again.



  28. 28

    oh wow she did!!! what happen ??



  29. 29

    wow! quite a difference!



  30. 30

    If you would read the fucken post she is a former Idol contestant..



  31. 31

    Shes been bigger for a while now P. I think its due to depression over her mother it tends to happen.

  32. lil2u says – reply to this


    32

    Ughhh Perez how about you give the girl some damn credit. When she was on idol she was using drugs big time until her mom died and she went onto Celebrity Rehab. She did really well on the show this past season so im guessing her not doing drugs has made her gain weight. If this is the case good for her! Lets not makee fun of her and cause her to relapse.



  33. 33

    she got off the yayo. of course she's gonna gain some weight. and she has 3 kids.



  34. 34

    It's a medical condition called recovering alcoholism. Aren't you a Dr. Drew fan, Perez?



  35. 35

    Wow what happened? So sad.



  36. 36

    well, thats what happens when you get off drugs!



  37. 37

    More like Nikki McPiggin.



  38. 38

    Ok, so wait. It's ok for Beth Ditto to be big and proud, but it's not ok for someone who is trying their hardest to stay sober to pack on a few pounds. My god, you're a hypocritical ass. Oh wait, I know. Nikki isn't gay.



  39. 39

    Where have you been Perez?? I thought you would for sure watch celeb rehab??



  40. 40

    Re: Sarah Jane

    haha, exactly!



  41. 41

    How totally cruel and clueless of you Perez. The girl was on Celebrity Rehab and admitted to having a serious Cocaine habit, DUH! Thought you were in support of regular sized ladies too. She looks FAB!!



  42. 42

    Jesus Christ! What the hell happened to her?! She used to be smoking hot! Twenty more pounds and she'll be as fat as that huge disgusting water buffalo Beth Ditto. Get that oinker some celery sticks and a diet coke!!!



  43. 43

    Shopping at Torrid!!!!



  44. 44

    Maybe it has something to do with her not doing drugs or drinking, which is obviously a very positive thing and who cares. So what she gained some weight, she's getting healthy, and living sober, so how about not giving her shit. She's adorable. She should be reading positive reviews of how she's doing, not negative shallow bullshit that could hurt her feelings and compromise her sobriety. As someone that had a VERY big weight problem, you shouldn't be so judgemental, Perez.



  45. 45

    stop about the medicals issues crap. you're bigger than she is! do you have a friggin medical issue???!!



  46. 46

    woah…..check out the back porch on that heffer. that's one BIG bitch, all you other fat girls take note……..spandex is not slimming



  47. 47

    Ummm…she stopped snorting coke which is why she was so tiny. Weight on her is something to be celebrated, not picked at! Go Nikki!!!!



  48. 48

    It's called NOT HITTING THE CRACK PIPE. Just ask your girl Whitney. Gaining weight is almost a good sign for drug addicts…but still shows they have addictive tendencies.



  49. 49

    It's normal to gain a significant amount of weight while recovering from drug abuse. Think Nicole Richie during the Simple Life, or Matthew Perry after he got treatment.

    Maybe you should be supportive of someone who is getting off drugs. It's incredibly hard to do.



  50. 50

    Because she's sober! Good girl. :)



  51. 51

    you're such a fucking asshole. pick on everyone's weight when you yourself wen through the same thing. you're not a saint because you lost weight. it takes time. don't be a bad person.



  52. 52

    DAMN!



  53. 53

    aw, that's sad…..i feel bad :(
    she's ok looking tho…and she's talented.



  54. 54

    My guess is alcohol has a lot to do with the extra weight. Is she drinking again?



  55. 55

    Re: Sarah Jane – LOLOLOLOL!!!!



  56. 56

    It's called being clean and sober…



  57. 57

    Don't be an ass, besides battling her drug dependency that she shared with her mother she has been dealing with tremendous depression. Yay! for Nikki for kicking her demons and even if she is bigger than she was what 5 or so years ago she is healthy. Perez you were a chubby yourself so dont be a cat about it plus since you lost so much weight you have penguin legs now, how knocked knee are you? Nothing you can do about that can you? but she can always loose weight.



  58. 58

    OMG



  59. 59

    That's what happens when you stop using COKE!



  60. 60

    peretzel, obviously ur not too smart…usually when someone is one drugs they are lose weight…hopefully she is drug free now, and as a result she has mostly gained the weight from that…its quite common.



  61. 61

    She's a recovering addict…………of course she's gained weight.



  62. 62

    Moooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!



  63. 63

    Re: psychobombshell – Good point. If she were a lesbian he would be saying she's "flaunting her curves."



  64. 64

    She screwed up her liver with drugs….the liver regulates metabolism. It will take a bit of work, but she can reset that set point and the weight will fall back off….this is not uncommon in recovery. Let's hope she doesn't see this and decide to pick back up to get skinny again!!!!



  65. 65

    Don't you know that rehab makes you gain weight?



  66. 66

    she was on celeb rehab and sober house and she looked the same way



  67. 67

    Nikki looks FABULOUS!!!! How can you say you LOVE Beth Ditto and her curves, yet you talk about Nikki? She is fighting a drug habit, her mother passed away, and she has kids. Nikki is doing good, and I am proud of her!!!!



  68. 68

    Um, she's thinner than Beth Ditto too so what's the big deal?



  69. 69

    Good for her! She's obviously on the road to recovery and looks happy even if she did gain some weight - this is the body bouncing back after all that abuse. Leave her alone!!!



  70. 70

    people always gain weight when they TRULY get sober



  71. 71

    she's sober



  72. 72

    Leave this girl alone she has been through so much. So what if she has gained a few extra pounds she still looks good! It is so disgusting how hollywood is you have to be perfect and most people in hollywood are not they go to plastic surgeons to try and achieve this look and now everyone wants to look like them and people look so fake its so annoying! Just be real be who you really are and be proud!

  73. larox says – reply to this


    73

    Wow Perez for someone who is always the first one to report negative stuff you sure missed this one, everyone knew she was on drugs, cocaine went to rehab, she stopped using and that is the result, you should probally post a before and after picture with a little white scirbble onthe before picture that says " cocaine does a body good" that seems right up your alley… JACKASS!



  74. 74

    that is the result of kicking the drugs and alcohol! She is eating real food and not drugs and alcohol!! good for her!



  75. 75

    Shes was on Celeb Rehab…… shes fat cuz shes sober! Drugs and booze can make you look so good!



  76. 76

    That's just rude. The girl overcame a serious drug and alcohol addiction and lost her mother to drugs in the process. Its a different ball game when you are eating instead of drinking and snorting your meals. Boo!!!! Go Nikki!



  77. 77

    I HOPE SHE DOSE NOT DO A LINE B/C OF YOU. GROW THE FUCK UP. YOU (SAY YOU) WORK OUT ALL THE TIME AND ARE STILL FATTER THAN ANYONE I KNOW. SO GO FUCK YOURSELF, CAUSE NO ONE ELSE WILL.



  78. 78

    she eat all of her season one cast mates except kelly clarkson



  79. 79

    Cute outfit. Love the whole look. She's workin' it!



  80. 80

    Well yeah she had kids when she was ON AI and she was TINY then so WTF? Did she EAT them?



  81. 81

    she's so cute and obviously off crack



  82. 82

    chunky girls of the world unity!!!! woohooooo!!!! i luv her outfit, its so cute. I would sooo wear that!



  83. 83

    ok writers hired by perez… do you even pay attention any more? shes been chubby since sober house. shes probably clean. you should be happy for her. not poking fun. but seriously- you were my fav place for celeb news but now it seems like you dont even keep up. sad, just sad.



  84. 84

    she is alive, thanks to rehab, duh perez. kick a girl while she's still trying to climb back up, why don't you?! you really are turning into such a bully and it's truly disappointing!



  85. 85

    Hasn't Nikki been through enough without Perez hurling insults? This brave woman has taken her life in her hands and aimed for sobriety for herself and her family. She has a lot more balls than Perez and half the people in the industry for that. I give anyone props for self-improvement. We're rooting for your health, Nikki. Don't let ignorant people set you back or cause you to lose hope again.



  86. 86

    she kicked her alcohol addiction.
    hence the weight gain.
    im proud of her.



  87. 87

    OMG- She used to be super thin. That isn't a 20lbs weight gain either, more like 100. She's unrecognizable now.



  88. 88

    dude FUCK OFF. She looks healthy and amazing!! fucking hotter than ever. You're such a fuckup, Perez.



  89. 89

    Ew. She needs to slow down on the food quite a bit!



  90. 90

    I saw her on celeb rehab and she told Dr. Drew she was taking the psychiatric drug geodon. Let me tell ya'll somethin. A psychiatric drug in that class, other wise known as an antipsychotic drug, used maily for the treatment of bipolar 1 disorder and schizophrenia will put weight on you very very fast. It's shitty that people just judge without consideration. I'm happy for her that she's out doin her thing. You go Nikki.



  91. 91

    That's what happens when you stop using drugs…jerk off



  92. 92

    Nikki is beautiful! In all honesty, I think she looks better with a few extra pounds; she doesn't look as sickly or malnourished as she used to. She is a strong, courageous woman who has battled and overcome an addiction and she should be praised and encouraged. She doesn't deserve your typical cyber-bullying, Perez. Nikki should be proud of herself - she's been through a hell of a lot, and she has survived.



  93. 93

    I didn't know who she was so googled her. She was very atrractive but, it was at a price. Good on her for fighting her demons. She looks happy in herself and thats great. Funny how it's the fuggly people who are making fun of her. Does it make you feel so much better now!?



  94. 94

    She's and inspiration! You should be supporting her not making fun of her!!!



  95. 95

    I think she's looking great! Let her get to a much more comfortable point in her recovery and then she can worry about her weight. One thing at a time.



  96. 96

    A couple extra pounds. How about a couple 100 extra pounds.



  97. 97

    missing the before picture hommieeee!!!!



  98. 98

    "We hope it's not the result of some sort of medical complication or health issue!"
    That is probably the most insincere thing I've ever read! lol. we HOPE shes okay?? why the fuck wouldn't she be okay? She's gained like 20 pounds!



  99. 99

    seriously, you should watch celeb rehab / sober house. its from the drinking and drugs. im honestly thrilled to see her this way because she looks healthy and sober again! kudos to her!!!



  100. 100

    im pretty sure she's a recovering addict. this is the result of kicking the habit
