After Howard Stern's tactless criticism of Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe, her mother, Alice Tan Ridle, has come to her defense.

Ridley said:

"Get a life! He can see, you can see, I can see Gabby is a big girl. She's a big woman, so what's wrong with that? She's not like everyone else in the world. I don't see him giving jobs out to anybody, so why should we care what he says? He might not hire her, but someone else will."

Well spoken.

Gaby recently told Oprah that she has come to terms with her weight and has accepted who she is!

More power to you.

    HOWARD IS RIGHT, all he said was this girl is huge, and everyone is pretending shes normal,,she is not normal, she has a mental issue that will kill her if not addressed,, she will die, and Howard will still be right.

    This is why Howard is the King of All Media! While everyones angry about this he is sitting back laughing with his cronies and using this as material for his ever SO SUCCESSFUL show. Go Howard and Baba Booey!

    Hey mum, great job taking care of your daughter! If only you had taken care of your daughter's food intake..

    um, really? she isn't just a big girl-she's huge. she couldn't come to terms with the fact that she's morbidly obese.

    Stating the obvious just makes you look like an idiot.

    She's not at a healthy weight but, I think it's crap that Stern is right. Hollywood wants skinny women in starring roles or even side roles. Talent should not be overshadowed by someone's outward appearance. We're too superficial.
