    yess it be true



  2. 2

    AWW CUTE LOL



  3. 3

    What the hell is your prob perez with Howard???What happened that every article you do now about him you slam him??



  4. 4

    someone needs to call jenny craig!



  5. 5

    I think she really should lose some weight. Not for her looks, but for her health…



  6. 6

    Congrats! That's awesome for her!

    I can't say that I agree with what Howard Stern said, but for her own health, it wouldn't hurt to spend some of that money on a Nutritionist, and a personal trainer. Because being that big is a slow and agonizing death.



  7. 7

    Damn…i need to find out how she works out her triceps…them bitches are RIPPED!



  8. 8

    you watch it perez … yuck ~ !!

    IF YOU CAN NAME ONE REASON TO BE FAT,
    I CAN NAME A THOUSAND TO BE FIT.

    perez (or whoever wrote this) … you are such an jerk … you rip on people all day long for smoking or being overweight because it's bad 4 their health…
    you think this 425lb girl is healthier than a thin smoker ? idiot ..



  9. 9

    I will tune in. 2 really good actors. Should be good.



  10. 10

    YAY! good for her - i look forward to this girl doing alot of great work and proving all the nasty assholes who take such enormous glee in making fun of fat girls WRONG. most of all i want her to prove my beloved howard and robin wrong. i do not agree with their cruelty toward her. she seems like a smart young woman with alot to offer. keep going strong, girl - you are beautiful!



  11. 11

    Fat fuck.. Seriously there is no good reason to be that huge.. And don't try to pay the genetics or medical issues card.



  12. 12

    Good for her. I have agre with you Perez (yes I actually said that) Suck it Howard.



  13. 13

    howard was right. this is the only type of role she will get , playing the big fat black chick with attitude.



  14. 14

    Yay! Glad to see she is getting something. Some posters need to grow up and get a life. I hope she can get in better health but that is up to her not some small minded ass.



  15. 15

    What does Howard have to do with this article? Howard has been very good to you. Not sure why you would say bad things about him. It is strange how you can give an opinion about a celebrity that others might not have the nerve to say. But when Howard does that you bash him. By the way if you pick a fight with Howard there is no way that you would ever win. His fans are a lot more loyal then your fans are to you. Also this Gaby is not fantastic. She was in one average movie and basically played herself.



  16. 16

    look at her arm ~ she needs to get on biggest loser - stat



  17. 17

    Mario is set out to bash Howard because he thinks he has a chance at the American Idol job. NOT!!!



  18. 18

    The reason she didn't win an Oscar was that she was also the star of The Blind Side!



  19. 19

    Lipstick on a pig!!!!!!!!!! She is disgusting to look at. I will not be watching!



  20. 20

    she has stretchmarks on her fuckin shoulders! how can someone let themselves get that way? try apples not apple pie.



  21. 21

    I don't Howard Stern was actually that mean. He was particularly kinder then I would have expected. She is huge. She must feel awful all the time. She needs help fast because she ends up with a life altering diagnosis like diabetes, heart disease, cancer. You know how much food a day you would have to consume to be that large.



  22. 22

    Re: Big Black Dick – OMG!! That's funny



  23. 23

    I'm am happy for all she's accomplished in her life thus far. Many good wishes to her.

    Here's the back-handed part of the compliment….She is morbidly obese. I'm not picking on her. Just saying she's accomplished alot….she needs to make sure she's around long enough to call it a career or at least a few good films.



  24. 24

    I don't have Showtime. If I had half her personality (bubbly and outgoing) I would be so happy. As for weight, there is a known gene for obesity. I have never been obese, but even with eating healthy and exercising, I have always been at least 20 pounds over what I would want my ideal weight to be. Weight is much more than stuffing your face.



  25. 25

    ew at her stretchmarks…



  26. 26

    good for her :) im glad.
    and this is a great FU to howard.



  27. 27

    this is not new news. they announced this like months ago. you're always so late on breaking stories geez!



  28. 28

    what's up with the shit talk about howard? you used to love him but now all you do is trash talk him. it's a little creepy perez. and a bit two faced.

  29. Laury says – reply to this


    29

    HA! Take THAT, Howard! You go, Gaby!!



  30. 30

    You'll be kissing Howard's ass next time you're on his show fuckwad. You're a gutless pansy when you're face to face with someone but are so brave while you're blogging. You'll always be a z-list phony.



  31. 31

    You know what …. that blue dress she wore to the Oscars …. it really does look lovely on her.
    Congrats to her for new gig.



  32. 32

    I'm missing a blue tent, has anyone seen it?



  33. 33

    no,not for a minute——–Howard was right.



  34. 34

    thats really good for her. but good lord couldnt they have used makeup to cover those stretch marks? after she filmed precious she should have lost weight like seriously didnt she know she would be in the public eye



  35. 35

    the fact that she had NO acting experience and was nominated for an oscar shows this girls got something the world can't deny!!! YOU GO GIRL!



  36. 36

    very good.. Howard sucks! he can drop dead



  37. 37

    Why Perez ?

    Anyways it wouldn't hurt her to lose some weight, everyone is acting like it's ok to be morbidly obese, it's not! This weight is going to cause her to have so many health problems. It would be fine if she was just overweight like you (Perez) or Oprah. She has the money to help her lose the weight, she has no excuse. FURTHERMORE PEREZ YOU'VE SAID MUCH WORSE, LETS SEE YOU SAID IT WAS OK FOR FAMILY GUY TO MAKE FUN OF SARAH PALIN'S MENTALLY CHALLENGED CHILD, YOU MADE FUN OF RIC FLAIR FOR NOT BEATING UP HIS WIFE HMMM YOU'RE ACTUALLY WORSE THAN HOWARD, HE SUCKS UP TO NO ONE!



  38. 38

    You know what will be amazing to become a real cinderella? loose some weigth, get healthy, get some manners and glamour, so she becomes a real sample of success in all ways possible. She already have the luck on her side and her good spirit.
    I really hope she gets some good roles. I wish her well.



  39. 39

    is it my computer screen or are there waves & waves of stretch marks running across her shoulders because the human body is not designed to store enormous quantities of fatty matter.
    eat half of what you are eating & walk around the block each night



  40. 40

    To all those saying that "she needs to lose weight" blah blah blah….what's it to you?? I mean, if you compare her to the film and herself now…she actually has lost weight…so she is already on the journey of doing so. But this is HER ISSUE not yours, get over it. She is overweight, get over it!
    To all those saying disgusting, immature and hurtful things - fuck you all.



  41. 41

    Re: sharre – 20lbs ?????? WTF …. 20lbs is nothing, this girl is like 250+ lbs overweight .. ya- it's a gene problem - your right . ding dong.. read a book sometime,
    people who are this overweight in their 20's, are consuming MASSIVE amounts of food ..



  42. 42

    She does not need to get skinny but what about the fabulous look of queen latifa?



  43. 43

    oprahs gonna make this fatso lose a ton of weight and then she's gonna be all "i lost 200 lbs!!" and in the corner of every magazine cover will be her showing off her new body…



  44. 44

    Re: ClareecePreciousJones

    precious why you not take care of mongo? go to maff class, bitch!



  45. 45

    the make up the eyelashes
    for what?

    she needs to lose weight!!!! is not healthy for her, this photo looks like a joke, eddie murphy in some role



  46. 46

    Re: tigrrrlilly

    no she's not. she's killing herself. thats like saying to a heroin addict, way to go, you looking pale and fraught with open sores is gorgeous!



  47. 47

    her upper arms are bigger than normal sized people's upper thighs. She's just full out grossly morbidly fat



  48. 48

    Re: Lowessleign – I almost Pissed my pants what a HAM get it HAM LOL

    Re: tonybotz – +1



  50. 50

    just ridiculous



  51. 51

    Re: tonybotz – ajajjaja indeed



  52. 52

    Shes a big girl. But its her business what she does with her life.
    Nobody is perfect, and for all you know she could be perfectly healthy.
    Just like Sharre said up there, It's not about stuffing yourself.
    All this drama over weight is getting old. Let her live her life, and everyone else butt out of it.



  53. 53

    she has stretch marks all over her back, so courageous lol



  54. 54

    Laura Linney & Oliver Platt !!!…amazing ! Ms. Sidibe; only adds to it in such a positive way. Can't wait



  55. 55

    gross look at the stretch marks on her shoulders, i didn't even know that was possible…BARF!



  56. 56

    love sidibe and so glad that she found work after precious.



  57. 57

    I'm so glad that Howard Stern has to choke on what he said about her. What a pig he is. I wish nothing but continuted success for Gabourey.



  58. 58

    This is what Robin would like if it wasn't for "green drink".



  59. 59

    RIGHT ON!! Ha ha racist, misogynist piglets that love Howard Stern! :) You better adjust and roll with the times baby because your Ugly Howie baby is going down!! Howard's been in decline for a long time, he's just bitter and FUG.



  60. 60

    FUCK hollywood and a new job she needs to get healthy or she will be DEAD its a reality. she needs to sign up for The BIggest Loser so she can survive to have a career. this chick is too young to be that big. and fuck these fat people like Monique who get all defensive like "oh im fat and beautiful, fuck skinny people". REALLY. I call it jealousy and lazy lame ass excuses



  61. 61

    What a great cast; I'll totally check it out.



  62. 62

    Re: JuicyMe – Ewww you're anger and insecurity is showing sweet heart…sorry you're losing your bet about this girl, riding the dated and irrelevant coat-tails of FUG Howard Stern. Nowadays, there's what's called equality towards women and black people…AND people don't get discriminated against as much for having weight issues. I know you're totally locked in the twilight zone when women were whatever men defined them as, but you need to join the 21st century, ditch the fugly old guy and his outmoded views of the world and get with the program. It's about working on yourself! Smoooooooches!!!



  63. 63

    Is anyone going to state the obvious about this actress yet? I mean, she is funny and sweet and no one is perfect, but my gawd she is gigantic! I actually cringe every time I see her. I think a bit of fluff is great, but wowwee! I am no tiny girl, believe me~! But, I just don't get how we are all just skipping past the obvious craziness of how this girl looks. Perez is usually ALL over anyone that has 4 extra pounds but this girl can do no wrong?? whatever



  64. 64

    Re: coolbeansman – You can see stretchmarks along her back and shoulders!! BARF!!



  65. 65

    When I read the title of the new show "The Big C"- I pee'd myself! Does the Big "C" stand for COW? How funny she plays the big black girl with an attitude- really because what else kind of role would she be able to play? There are tons of attractive overweight women in this world- and I'm sorry she is not one of them! The title of the show and the storyline sounds sooooo interesting! NOT!



  66. 66

    awww. cute strretch marks on her shoulder… "you know your fat when…"



  67. 67

    To all the people saying she's fat. Post your pics and lets see what you look like. She is a great actress, very believable in Precious. When you see her in interviews she is nothing like her character. Keep your head up Gaby, obviously you're doing something right or all these people wouldn't be hatin on you./



  68. 68

    I can't help it…..*giggles* But to watch this show, do you need a bigger screen? I'm thinking she wouldn't fit on most.



  69. 69

    Re: JaneMancini – When you are only 5'1 20-30 pounds is a lot. I work-out over an hour a day. I run up to 7 miles and guess what? I still have "cottage cheese" on my thighs and legs. I don't even wear jeans and a bathing suit is embarrassing. My point is, weight is not always detemined by what you eat and a lack of exercise. Genetics do play a role. I live it. People have called me fat before and it is nothing you soon forget. You remember that over any compliment. She is a young girl with feelings. Stop judging!



  70. 70

    Re: mpatt669 – you're just mad she got another movie so quick. Post YOUR PIC hot stuff! What movies are you in? didn't think so, she's laughing at YOU all the way to the bank! KACHING!!! $$$$ ppppfffffffffffff!!!!



  71. 71

    People are so neg .. When she is ready she will loase weight she will . who the hell are yall to tell her she needs too …….. FUCK ALL YALL HATERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS and Howard funny looking ass



  72. 72

    Maybe people should overlook her size and focus on her acting chops. I saw that movie and that girl KILLED!! She was amazing and I believe she well deserved her nomination.



  73. 73

    pp are so neg … Great Job . she is a pretty young lady .. F**k all yall haters
    Who the hell are you to tell someone what the f**k to do .. .. Plz like ur life is the best .. I bet she has more money in her bank acct .. then yall haters .. And F**k Howard too funny looking ass !!!



  74. 74

    She looks pretty in that picture you mean spirited ass-holes. Girls are forming their identity and self-worth between 10 and 20 years old! Fuck all your haters and I hope something really terrible happens to you, you deserve it. :D



  75. 75

    I love Gabby!! I can't wait watch this show! :D



  76. 76

    She should play Killian the killer whale. That is a much more suitable role for her. Good lord, just look at all that fat on her arm…she should have mini planets orbiting around her looking like that.



  77. 77

    i saw her movie yesterday, but i don't know if she's really good or not coz i could barely see her looks…



  78. 78

    I'm glad to hear that she got a job and so quickly too because I too thought that she was not going to get work because of her size. Let's be honest, how many actresses of that size do we see on television or in movies. Roles for women of her size are very rare. Howard Stern was being harsh but I see his point. I too was thinking that all these people are getting her hopes up by telling her that she has a lengthy career ahead of her. I hope with all my heart that that is true, but that is not the reality of show business. I'm glad she proved me wrong. Good luck to her.



  79. 79

    Definitely. Stern is a DOUCHE!



  80. 80

    Re: JackWad – Go fuck yourself with a broomstick that you use to clean out your flea-infested vagina, and then die from your Aids virus. Sincerely, all Howard fans.



  81. 81

    I'm sure she is a wonderful girl, but she is so obese! She needs help!



  82. 82

    She did NOT get a job "quickly" Precious premired at Sundance LAST January and was filmed in LATE 2007…she's been unemployed for about 2 1/2 years now…other than some other movie she did and who knows how many days of shooting that was. Sorry to say, because she seems like a truly sweet girl but Howard is right…lose some weight honey, if only for your health!



  83. 83

    Howard Stern didn't say that she would never have a role again. All he said was she wasn't going to have a career. And thats true! Name one gigantic fat black chick in Hollywood? In fact, name one gigantic fat chick in general in Hollywood.



  84. 84

    Re: JackWad – Let's hope she got a whole lot of identity then, cuz no man would stick a dick in that enormous brown mountain of flesh based on her looks.



  85. 85

    Good!



  86. 86

    i agree she does look like she has lost some weight since filming precious. that is just not healthy for someone so young and promising.



  87. 87

    This is news from over a month ago. WTF?



  88. 88

    she is also in the new Gorillas in the Mist remake,deal with it the shit is funny!!!! and if she would be in Congo



  89. 89

    I'm glad that she's not your typical stick thin celebrity but she really should lose some weight. I'm glad that everyone in hollywood isn't stick skinny but she should really try to lose some weight for health purposes.



  90. 90

    Re: wdrwoman – meh, an asshole needs some rippin' now and again ;)



  91. 91

    TEAM HOWARD, PEREZ SUCKS COCK!!! NEXT.



  92. 92

    Those who are undisciplined become fat. There is something distasteful about their inability to control themselves. To be thin takes control and rigour.

    Karl Lagerfeld



  93. 93

    Being that heavy just is NOT HEALTHY. If she does not lose weight she will be dead by 35.



  94. 94

    Re: mariapompeo – Babe the majority of the people saying all of this are actually stating it because they do not want to see her die before she turns 40. Hell they do not want to see her suffer and be plagued with severe diabetes. They don't want her to have to have toes, hell even forcing her to become an amputee! She is beautiful don't get me wrong, but she is in dire need of Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp.



  95. 95

    She is always making stupid comments, like the recent one about people on jury duty being dumb. She needs to shut her fat, ignorant mouth once in a while.



  96. 96

    Why does everyone think its acceptable to be that obese? It's not, chick needs a diet plan or gastric bypass, SOMETHING. No reason to be that fucking fat.



  97. 97

    *

    Mmm…all-over-body stratch marks. Yum. So attractive. Especially in a low cut gown at a highly publicized event.

    *

    Nothing compliments a beautiful gown like stretch marks all over the exposed skin.

    *

    And talk about turn ons! Massive stretch marks being displayed such as we see above has got be makin' every guy's soldier stand at attention!

    *

    Re: archimmes – You need to be pummeled with a huge dong until it rips out your tonsils and shoots spuge up your fecking shnoze ass lick!



  99. 99

    This is what happens when you break Willy Wonka's rules. I bet you can squeeze grape soda out of her.



  100. 100

    I can't wait until you want to be on his show again and he rips you a new one, you'll be running out of there crying with your yellow dipped hands limply bouncing on the way out.
