    This pig is disgusting but I would probably still ram her so I could brag to my friends that I nailed a water buffalo.

    Man, that girl is big… so unhealthy. :( I knew she would now get movies jobs.. knew it would be a off show on showtime or something..

  7. 107

    look at those stretch marks on her arm…. DAMN!!!! she really need to lose some weight, not for looks, but her health is on a huge risk. Best of luck girl!!

    Too bad Howard didn't bet on his words . . . ha!

  10. 110

    god, what has happened to the enlightened crowd that usually makes up Perez Hilton's boards..this makes me thing Fug-fucktard Howard sent all these people here!!! They're all his kind of degenerate. We're on to you Howard! I'll never forget when you had some guy call into Rosie's show and call her a fat ass during one of her shows. You see, that's the kind of toe jam you are. You need to be cleansed with flame Howard.

  13. 113

    Although i am happy for Gabby and her good acting, She really fit the part for precious because of her weight and because of her "major tude" role. Although i know she has potential to play other parts, for the love of cookies can she please lose some weight, i am by far so repulsed on how she looks like shes going to pop!!! it's not healthy for her and if she wants to continue to be taken seriously, she needs to drop the pounds.

  14. 114

    Fire her off into space along with that Snooki stench.

  15. 115

    Re: JackWad – If you still griping on Rosie feud, then I bet you're one of those ugly unfuckable virgin broads are ya? You can't take the heat, keep your disgusting, aids-ridden vagina out of the kitchen and leave opinions to people who can balance more than a single thought at a time, bitch.

  16. 116

    Re: archimmes – If you think a young Gillian Anderson's ugly! You cock suck fucktard! My fucking puss got flowers growing out of it! What's up with your cheesy piss pipe!?

  17. 117

    hope she enjoys her 15 minutes!!!

  18. 118

    Jesus Christ! Look at those disgusting stretch marks! This chick is nothing but a freak show; it's political correctness gone wild. Doesn't matter what she does now - her body is so destroyed and there's no way to recover. Sorry, honey - it's a few minutes of fame and then back to the circus. Save your money!!!

  19. 119

    Perez is just jealous of Howard that is why he continues to bash him. Dont hate the playa perez….hate the game…and howard is and always will be THE KING OF ALL MEADIA…..You can be his queen

  20. 120

    wow cause this isn't something from EW a month ago. Lame ass!

    I can't believe I'm saying it, but she looks revolting!

  23. 123

    Ha Ha! What do U think about that, Howard Stern?

  24. Moron says – reply to this


    She sure needs to lose weight if she wants to live long enough to have a career. I hope her recent success motivates her to get the help she so obviously needs.

  25. 125

    Good for her Congrats !!!This is what Hollywood needs TALENT..People who can actually ACT!!!!

  26. 126

    Like it or not Perez she is FAT it is unhealthy you of all people should know about it. She desperately needs to either change her diet and exercise or reduce the size of her stomach. I am not saying this to be mean that young lady would be able to achieve new heights in her now blossoming career. Not to mention how much more healthy she would feel.

  27. 127

    WOW this is my first post ever only because I am so appalled by all the hate on this post. Ugh, it is so disappointing to realize we still live amongst so much hatred. You should really all be ashamed of yourselves for saying such hurtful things about someones weight. I am sure she is aware of her size. Are you perfect? No, you're not, because you're a jerk. Not only is she an incredible actress with insane success…but playing that role required a lot of bravery and why cant we commend her for that, not her stretch marks?

  28. 128

    Re: JerseyShoreGuy56 – its what allot of people said. plus u might add that its not a leading role. she seems like a nice girl but she is destined to play roles like this. theres not much else u can cast her as.

  29. 129

    Just rename it 'The Big G'. This woman should take every offer she can get as I doubt she has that much longer to live.

  30. 130

    Perez is such a hypocrite! Whenever someone like J.Love Hewitt or Jessica Simpson puts on a little weight he slams them and calls them fat, yet he's said nothing about this girls obesity! She's clearly extremely overweight to the point where it's dangerous. She's even got stretchmarks on her shoulders! What's up with that Perez? Anyone else agrees?

  31. 131

    Re: Betch84 – All the money in the world can buy you skinny. Look at Kirstie Alley, Oprah, and even Carney Wilson. Carney actually had the surgery and is back to her previous weight. It takes a life time commitment to go through with it and most people won't do it. No matter poor or rich…

  32. 132


  33. 133

    *can't buy you skinny

  34. 134

    Re: JackWad – That's not flowers hun, that's your sores from your aids oozing. You have aids sores on your vagina, and they are oozing disgusting green discharge and you better go clean them out before you infect someone.

  35. 135

    Some people are such hypocrites. It is all right for a morbidly obese women to ‘inspire people’ but when a size zero model is on the front covers or runways, or the big screen, all hell breaks loose?

    Guess what? BOTH ARE UNHEALTHY.

    Good for her, though. She was brilliant in precious.

  36. 136

    stern rules!

  37. 137


  38. 138

    Finally! A role model for morbidly obese girls everywhere. Awww! Also, she's very bright: "the media are dumber than the people on jury duty" (direct quote from after the Oscars). Awwwwwwwwwww!

  39. 139

    Good for her but I mean, come on, she needs to lose weight, shes such a bad influence on young kids! Encouraging morbid obesity!!!! She looks fit to burst! It makes me sick, she should really be thinking about being a role model to young peeps n GO ON A FUCKING DIET!!!!

  40. 140

    Re: sarah-jane – Maybe Perez is supporting her because she's gay, knowing him. Oddly, this blog entry on Sidibe, whose dad is from Senegal, comes right after an entry on elephant dung high heels. Coincidence? You decide.

  41. 141

    Damn, some of yall are cruel. :(

  42. Imy says – reply to this


    I'm not saying she's fat, but… okay I am. There's nothing wrong with that, but she is just dangerously ENORMOUS. She should lose SOME weight, it isn't healthy.

  43. 143

    Of course shes gonna get another fucking job, shes oscar nominated. Bunch a dumbasses..

  44. 144

    It sounds like a decent show. Here's hoping girlfriend can take enough time off her 'gruelling' schedule to get healthy though, coz if there's one thing she ain't, it's healthy!

  45. 145

    Tell me what job she has after a year…of course she is popular now, the oscars just ended.

    Whats the matter Perez? Angry Howard didn't invite you to Tiger's mistress beauty pageant?

    Re: LusciousLiz – Skeet,skeet,skeet!

    A membership to the YMCA would do wonders for this huge girl. Get into the pool! You won't sweat so much! Eat a piece of fruit! Put down the twinkie!
    Geeze, look in the mirror!
    How can she wipe? Who's arm is that long?

  48. 148

    shes disgusting
    who has stretch marks on thier SHOULDERS for crissakes.
    the next story will be after she staples her stomach and gives an interview about how unhappy she is as a fatty.

  49. 149

    Re: archimmes – ROFL
    Howard Stern didn't say anything that many of us weren't thinking but didn't have the balls to say, folks. And for him, he was kind. So she got a recurring role after her first, post-Precious blush. Let's see how long she keeps working; let's see if she stands the test of time or, in a year from now, no one sees her anymore.
    Sidibe is PAINFUL to look at. I don't know if she has a thyroid issue (they make meds for that) or if she's just a glutton (in which case she needs to develop some self control fast and stop eating everything she sees … her Chick Filet comments were very telling). But she can't carry all that fat around indefinitely and live long. She's GROSS. Pointing out her size isn't hating; it's stating the obvious.

  50. 150

    OmGosh! look at her upper body! her shoulder and back areas are covered in stretch marks! how is that healthy her mass is so great the her skin has had to make more skin then necessary. Howard Stern couldnt care less if perez says screw him. Howard Stern can say whatever he wants. You think he gives a shit about perez!? LOL I watched American idol last night and was so revolted by Ellen. Sitting on Simons lap hahahahahaha how desperate are you to stay on the show. lol

  51. 151

    Re: Starbuck – Grape soda. That's funny.

  52. 152

    I will most definitely be watching this! Howard's name hasn't been mentioned in a while so I guess he started running off at the mouth just for the sheer fuckery of it. Don't give him anymore attention, Perez. This is Gabby's moment; not his! Howard needs to concentrate on curing that ass acne problem he's so proud to have!

  53. 153

    So she will basically be getting about 1 minute of screen time. When she lands another major role in a major film let me know, otherwise she's had her 15 minutes of fame.

  54. 154

    She's VERY tallented none can't deny that and She's (at this moment) a role model to many young overweight girls, because despite her looks she has accomplished a lot, speciallly in a place like hollywood. BUT she really should loose all that overweight and get healthy. That way she'll send a message to all the fat girls..i mean if she can do it..everybody can. I really think overweigh is just lazzyness (not a gene problem, genetics, blah blah blah), cause it's really hard to exercise and eat healthy..it's easier to complain. I mean shows like the biggest loser proves it that it can be done.

  55. 155

    Lord there must be a shortage of fabric after her dress was made!!

  56. 156

    I congratulate her talent, but promoting obesity isn't good. The public acceptance of her weight encourages obese people mistakenly think "it's OK to be fat!". It's not, for your health. She doesn't need to shrink into size 2, but at least she should consider fitting into a 'normal' size, not custom made clothing.

  57. 157

    PS: I heard she has to put on her belt with a boomerang. Sorry. I couldn't resist.

  58. 158

    I truly love her and her performance in Precious was outstanding but she really has to lose some pounds. You can't even see her pretty face because her cheeks covers it!

  59. 159

    Re: Lowessleign – Man, I didn't want to laugh to this but that is freaken funny!

  60. 160

    Re: Big Black Dick – hahahaha- that is just WRONG but I love iT

  61. 161

    She has a pretty face but its distorted by her morbid obesity, she should get down to queen latifas weight, like a size 14, she would get alot more acting roles.

  62. 162

    Mr. Stern was absolutely correct. It was sheer luck there was a role that was body/face appropriate. Unfortunately, her future is dimmed by predictable medical conditions. Ms. Sidibe may well be facing a future of diabetes, high blood pressure, joint and back problems, amputations and premature death. Will it have been worth it to maintain that size so people will always be able to say, "There's that fat chick from Precious!"?? Her mother is guilty of child abuse for enabling her daughter's gorging.

  63. Linny says – reply to this


    I like this girl-she's a real spitfire. Looking at this pic you can see she is covered in stretch marks from her weight. She is so young to be this big. I hope, for her sake, she tries to get healthier. It would be sad to see such a young talented girl lose her life at a young age due to morbid obesity.

  64. 164

    I hope she loses some weight. She's not going to make it to 50 if she doesn't do something.

  65. 165

    Why are you hating on Howard Stern Perez??? Didn't you do the same thing to Kristi Alley??? YOU BIG FAT UGLY HYPOCRITE!!!

  66. 166

    Please. She goes from an Oscar nom and having Oprah kiss her black ass to a TV stint. She seems like a very nice person. But this is Hollywood. She is black, strike one; she is obese, strike two. Look at Halle Berry: she won the silly Oscar and her film career is cold. If G doesn't lose weight she is going to be like Ruben Studdard–doing the chitlin circuit and the Wendy Williams Show. Gaby, LOSE WEIGHT! It is not healthy to be that fat.

  67. 167


  68. 168

    The Big C?? Cheesburger?? Corndog?? Cheese Pizza?? I will watch the first episode, only to see if they show that fat pig sit in a school desk!!!!!! Thats the nastiest big coon I have seen on a long time. Her fat gots fat. GROSS!!!

  69. 169

    Hell yeah Hot mama!
    I will be watching The big C!!!

  70. 170

    Urgh, it's not healthy to be that weight, she'll be dead by the time she's 30- she's just as bad as super skinny anorexic celebrities who everyone bashes. Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, leg ulcers and chafing aren't really that sexy

    There's a difference between having a fuller figure (which is good) and being clinically obese

  71. 171

    Hell, I thought the new job would be at the local zoo….tell me she does not look like a female bull ape, she has the size and definate look…that is my opinion and I am sticking to it

  72. 172

    Re: tonybotz – and do you really think it helps her at all when people are cruel to her? do you really think that all the criticism and meanness makes her feel empowered and strong enough to make any changes she might need to make? no, it doesn't help at all. she needs to decide FOR HERSELF when and how she addresses any of her issues. people tearing her down are only going to make her feel worse and retreat more into any bad self-image she may already have. until you have been grossly overweight (and i have, as have many of my girlfriends) you will never, ever understand. it's HER life, it's HER body. but if you want to go right on being ugly in the name of "helping her" with your ugliness then go right ahead. all it does is reflect badly on you, not her. it just shows how much fun it is for people to continue mocking the fat girl. keep getting off on it - it makes you feel so good.

    Re: benassi-kid – karl lagerfeld is a prissy little piece of eurotrash.

  74. 174

    i'm glad i'm not american, i wouldnt want to see this fucking whale on my tv. she's so fucking ugly and disgusting, seriously! LOSE SOME FUCKING WEIGHT YOU FAT BITCH.

  75. 175


  76. 176

    Re: jadeambuh – why are you so angry? What the FUCK do you care if she is fat or skinny? Get a life you miserable fucking loser

  77. 177

    something smells fishy

  78. 178

    I hope this terrific actress loses some damn weight. I mean she's HUGE! This is not good for you.

  79. 179

    aww i love gabourey sidibe she seems so sweet and nice
    but she really does need to lose some weight, shes not healthy like this.
    i mean her arms are like both of my legs put together
    i love her though, shes so kind hearted

  80. 180

    well now that the movie is over, she can hire a nutritionist to help her get to a healthy shape (w/e it may be). She worked hard and it'll pay off.

  81. 181

    I can't believe some of these assholes bash women like Mariah Carey and Britney Spears for being fat but they praise this obese bitch, calling her beautiful?? Give me a break! Such jealousy and hyprocrisy…

  82. 182

    Go Gabourey!

  83. 183

    OMG THEY ARE CALLING IT THE BIG C….because she is fat wow, thats pretty bad.. this girl needs to tell them to fuck off and change that name,, she should have more respect for herself… sad

  84. 184

    Those strechmarks are INSANE!!! I never knew you could even have strech marks on your shoulders!

  85. 185

    damn. i was hoping you were gonna say she got a job for Jenny Craig or something.

  86. 186

    It's funny how all these posters are "so concerned" with this womans weight. So concerned enough to insult and berrate her. So she's fat? Yes there are health risks, but who the fuck are any of you to mock her about it? I would love to see what the "gorgeous" individuals on this website look like. You must be all fuckin Kim Kardashian or whatever Hollywood Ho that you people idolize. Yeah she has stretch marks? And your point? Even skinny ass twats can get those. You people are fucking cruel beyond belief. You say she's discusting, your fuckin discusting inside your motherfuckin souls. Shallow, jockin, celebrity on their nuts, lickin ass, poser motherfuckers.

    Fuck Howard Stern too. Big nose, medusa headed, ugly ass mother fucker. Fuck that black uncle tom parrot he calls a "co host" too.

  87. 187

    I am happy that she is out there showing others with weight problems that they should be out there living life and reaching for the stars. But now that she has resources and support she should lose weight for her health. She could lose 100lb and still get obese parts. She's young now but as a thin person my body does not work the way it did when it was young, and things will fall apart for her quickly at that dangerous extreme weight she is at.

  88. 188

    Perez you are such an idiot. First of all, this was announced MONTHS ago and I've not seen anything that states the show has changed it's name–it's not The Big C. It's called The C Word, at least according to Showtime. Could you at least try to pretend that you aren't a complete moron?

    And I can't for the life of me understand why it's any of you fucktards believe it's any of your business how big this girl is. It's her life and she should live it how she wants to. Her health is none of our fucking business. Her career is her career and she'll do what she feels is best in terms of making her way. Her weight is none of our concern or Howard's, especially given that his sidekick Robin was HUGE for YEARS and had to undergo surgery and she still has to do drastic dieting to stay at the weight she is now. And most of the comments are not about her health. It's about pretending that you're funny making jokes that 5 year olds make on the playground. Wow…original and not at all pathetic.
