    I don't think it's depriving yourself to walk by the Fridge on ocassion.

  2. 2

    I love her, too. :) (Except I hate Mercedes.)

  3. 3

    Fat people always highlighting their appearance and trying to convince others that they are perfectly fine with the extra weight.

  4. 4

    there is a first for everything…

  5. 5

    Why don't I believe her? The only people who are completely happy with their bodies are narcissists.

  6. 6

    Dude… You NEED to retire the word Amazeballs…. it's LAME and Old like your face Troll Boy

  7. 7

    good for her :)

    Put down the fried chicken girl!!!

    ewwww i'm sure she does. she likes to be fat. lose a few lbs please

  10. 10

    Confidence gets you far. No harm in self-love.

  11. 11

    It's both unappealing and unhealthy being fat.

  12. 12

    I hope she loves heart disease, cancer, stroke and going into diabetic shock too.

  13. yup says – reply to this


    You ARE depriving yourself…of good health! I guess we are all supposed to feel bad when the diabetes and HBP kick in? not.

    Pedophiles go to jail….for a long time.

  16. 16

    She looks like Gabourey Sidibe younger sister.

  17. Stepy says – reply to this


    Wow…all this hatred and weightist attitudes are so so sad and small minded. A person can be a bigger size and be healthier than someone super skinny.


  18. Merab says – reply to this


    haha..cool that she loves those parts…but actually I don´t think that she knows what it is "to love herself"…it has nothing to do with the butt,honey, or breasts…hehe

  19. 19

    She loves her food as well. Maybe too much…

    Re: Stepy – Right on!

  21. 21

    Cute picture of Amber! She has an amazing voice and her acting is improving.

  22. 22

    You are fat and unhealthy. You should be on a diet and exercise routine. FAST!!!

  23. 23

    Suuuure…. one of these days she'll be staring on a Jenny Craig commercial "sharing" her moving story on how she lost the weight and it changed her life. Please speak to Valerie Bertinelli, Jennifer Hudson, Sara Rue, Queen Latifah, Marie Osmond and/or Jason Alexander to get some tips…. don't call Christie Alley, she'll eat you in one bite…..

  24. 24

    Re: Jessy – @23 - kirstie, not christie - 2 entirely different names……..

  25. 25

    hopefully she loves a heart attack, hbp and diabetes just the same………..

  26. 26

    It's well and good to feel this way, but the fat young actor from "The Blind Side" has already been dropped by his agent, who noted frankly that overweight actors are a hard sell in this industry.
    America Ferrara has slimmed down and she got more work. So did the N.Z. director Peter Jackson.
    Gabourey S. and this actress will not have a long shelf life if they remain obese. Hollywood is not a welcoming place for fat people, though I am scratching my head over the success of certain young, fat and male comedians.

  28. 28

    Damn, well i guess somebody has too. The funny part is, all fat people that don't want to do the work to get skinny say the same thing. "I'm happy being me, i won't deprive or starve myself, i'm beautiful just how I am". Which translates into "i'm ashamed i'm to lazy to work out and this is the best excuse I can think of".
    P.S. Before anyone get's their panties in a wad, i'm fat, and so is my wife. The difference is, we know we're lazy and unmotivated and don't make excused for it.

  29. 29

    Wow, funny how the negative comments made are all about what is healthy… I guess you also take her blood pressure and measurements every time she visits you at the doctors office? Get over your idea of what is healthy to you (haters) and rejoice in the idea that she for one loves herself, and second could care less about ignorant comments such as some that have been left on here. Dont feel sorry for the big girl and definitely don't hate on her cause in the end she not only is loving her life and self, she is probably laughing all the way to the bank while you (haters) bicker about someone you read about on the computer chillin at your shitty job eating a burger your gonna throw up 5 minutes after eating it. Just sayin. Hatred makes people look so pathetic.

  30. 30

    Re: spy girl – Well she does dance a lot. She's lost lots of weight since the first episode of Glee. You try losing a few stone.

  31. 31

    I don't believe this for a second. Every girl I know that is slightly over weight hates it. Why are all these gigantic fat asses trying to convince people that they love their bodies? Seriously, what is to love about being obese? And I don't care if she claims to be healthy or not, she still looks like shit!

  32. 32

    Of course….it's much easier to "love yourself" the way you are than to work at losing weight. I don't believe anyone that is that heavy "loves" themselves. Quite the opposite. So she loves her breasts, her face, her butt…but does she love the huge roll of fat around her waist that is going to end up killing her (heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure) or her fat thighs that make exercising uncomfortable?? It's about HEALTH, honey….not what you love, which is obviously food.

  33. 33

    amazing voice…. but… shes fat and its not healthy

  34. 34

    I wonder if she loves her giant grand canyon sized nostrils too???

  35. 35

    how could you NOT love yourself if your famous for being the big booty black chick on glee?

  36. 36

    Re: Loewenstein – Skinny people are always saying they can eat whatever they like and just have good metabolism… different side of the same coin…?

  37. 37

    Whilst it's refreshng to see someone with a different attitude to all the stick thin celebs around, she is overweight and she should probably lose a few pounds because she's putting her health at risk.

  38. 38

    Yay…yet another fatty that loves being fat! God bless America

  39. 39

    Re: Stepy

    You're probably fat too. Eat less.

  40. 40

    Re: wayway – You don't have to take her measurements to see and know that she is fat - HBP/heart failure/stroke/t2 diabetes all come with the territory (sorta like being famous comes with paparazzi). Healthy isn't someone's idea or opinion, it's fact. Going by your concept, a Bigmac is healthy for one and horrible for another based on what they think, instead of the contents of the "food". I don't give a shit what she says, she'd be more comfortable and would "love herself" more if she was truly healthy. Fat is not healthy (or beautiful) no matter how much denial your in. Truth is, no one's really "hating" on her, it's just a load of bs. Loving yourself also has more to do than what the mirror reflects - based on her comment (and yours) neither of you understand or comprehend that.
    And your final comment "hated makes people look pathetic"….your entire attack was full of negativity and hatred…….you may want to take a bite of that humble pie, the piece labeled "your own advice"………

  41. 41

    Yea that's right because ALL skinny people are happy with themselves (sarcasm). Why are you all acting like you care about her health? Just another reason for you talk ish about someone. If she is comfortable w/ herself, then so be it. You can be big and healthy. Fall the eff back.

  42. 42

    In this girls defense… she's not as big as Gabby S. She certainly should lose weight, but she's not that far off from being healthy.

  43. 43

    Re: April 20th – Oh shutup! I'm sure you don't really care about her health. If you honestly think there isn't any beautiful or attractive women who are overweight, then you live under a rock. You and the rest of America are so shallow. So skinny or "healthy" people are the only ones who are attractive or beautiful? Bullsh*T! I see ugly skinny people daily. So if Amber Riley was "truly healthy" she'd love herself more??? Get out of here. Really. Happiness stems from more than health. Clearly you and the rest of the shallow individuals with negative comments, find happiness on criticizing celebrities. If that's how she feels, then that's how she feels. What's it to you? Fall back.

  44. 44

    Re: nthnlessthnreal – hey, tell your mom, she might care.

  45. 45

    She is probably healthier than people who yo-yo diet.

  46. 46

    Re: Saosin – LOL

  47. 47

    Re: April 20th – you get better everyday. thank you for perfectly expressing what so many of us think but can't find the proper words to communicate!

  48. 48

    Re: nthnlessthnreal – i sense that this comment is coming from a big girl;) Any individual would be happier if they were healthier, and to say otherwise is pretty moronic. Lets see how well her "happiness" translates in about ten years when she is riddled with chronic illnesses due to her weight. I'm all for someone loving themselves. Denial however is a totally different story.

    Get it girl! She looks good b/c she's confident! Work it, love her on Glee.

  50. 50

    Good for her!

  51. 51

    Good for her! I think she's beautiful.

  52. 52

    Everyone in this comment thread that is being mean…you guys are sad sad horrible people that probably are miserable in your own lives.

    So suck shit at the fact this 'big girl' has more success than you.

  53. 53

    funny how the nobodies have such negative things to say. She is rich do you think she cares about fat jokes? She knows shes fat but shes beautiful. And more successful than you skinny minis posting spreading your boob envy.

  54. @v@ says – reply to this


    She could use a little bit of deprivation, because her habits will deprive herself of good health and extra years down the road. She's pretty hefty. If she likes herself now, she'll still like herself if she lowers her risk factors.

  55. 55

    hi. im a 15 year old girl. i weigh 200 pounds. im not happy with it. but im glad to know that over half of you would just pretty much hate me the first time you saw me just because im not "healthy", and thank you so much for bringing down my confidence even more because of some of the things you have said. this is pretty much like racism….fatism i shall call it. if you're skinny, you think you're better than us "thick", "unhealthy" people. honestly, even though im not too happy with my body, im probably ten times happier than all of you skinny people are. Amber Riley, Queen Latifa, and everyone else who are heavier than other people, they are my role models. Gives us hope that you don't have to be a size 2 to make it big.

  56. 56

    Personally, I enter the debate as someone who was once borderline obese but is healthier now, losing over fifty pounds and taking up regular exercise. Am I happier? Yes, but I needed to come to a place where I realized the most important thing wasn't how I looked, it was who I was, and that was what let me lose the weight. Every time someone looks at an 'overweight' person and only sees fat, unhealthy, shameful, it just makes them more likely to overeat. It fosters a black and white, either-or mentality, where there is only size zero or sixteen, and the real natural range is ignored.

    From working on a show like Glee, Amber Riley at least has to dance constantly, which means she is not "lazy" when it comes to exercise- she has to learn choreography the same as other "normal-sized" girls on the show, and no matter what, having such regular exercise will keep someone relatively healthy for their size if continued.

    Yes, it will help her career to lose weight, but if she has the kind of genetics where an eating disorder would be the only option to go to "Hollywood-size"- see Crystal Renn- then it would be better for her and her health to pursue her career regardless- especially in an R&B/gospel urban market, which is much more accommodating of "women of size."

  57. 57

    Just because she's big doesn't mean all she's doing is sitting on her butt eating bon bons all day or do none of us actually watch this girl perform on Glee? You can be a big girl and still be eating healthy and the weight won't come off contrary to popular belief which means there are other medical issues that they need to get checked out. Even if she DID lose a few pounds she's not going to be a stick. I think it's stupid that because she says she's happy with herself everyone has to say she's lying and attack her weight.

    Re: Stepy – a overweight person can only be healthier then a skinny or average weighted person if they exercise everyday and eat non processed food while the skinny or average weighted person doesn't. but that only counts if the overweight person only has a bit of extra body fat on them.

    its impossible for a person this obese to be healthier then an average sized or skinny person, you fucking obese loving moron! fuck! i bet you fat people curvy, too!?

  60. 60

    Re: Jeanski – you're so right, i think her curves are lovely and it's great that she loves them too.

  61. 61

    I think all the hating losers are actually upset that they are miserable and she is happy with her life and looks.
    as for the comments about her not exercising. UM ok,have you ever watched glee? they dance their asses off,and thats just in one episode. behind the scene is hours of choreography and practise,so CLEARLY she is exercising.
    As for her eating habits.Im sure nobody here actually knows for a fact and who cares. its stupid that a 'skinny' person who does the old ”oh i can eat whateveri live on maccas and dont get fat' do you realise THEY are probably gonig to have heart disease issues? NO but thats ok because they are small. right?

    Seriously who gives a shit. Im so sick of everyone being so critical of everyone else. i actually love the fact that glee has a 'bigger' person on the show,and its sad that its so rare when that happens. the world is full of so many arrogant and ignorant idiots. your too fat,too skinny,dont smile enough,or your too 'perky' and fake

    Pretty much,you hating losers arent happy till everyone is as miserable and pathetic as you.

    Re: mjjbfan1987 – Random posters aren't responsible for your confidence. You are; and you said EVEN MORE, so how is already eroded confidence any random poster's fault? I don't hate fatties, and I don't see a lot of hate (that's your perception) on here, but more a lot of legitimate concern. Besides, this is Perez, you know how posts go here; and if you don't, then maybe you should stay away because this might not be for you. It's not a counseling office. BTW, how are you 15 yet your handle says 1987, which would actually make you 23. Are you being a whiny overweight troll? Listen, honey, I dropped weight years ago, and have kept it off, so it's not like I have no empathy. Eat less, and eat right, and get your confidence back. It's not rocket science.

  63. 63

    Good for her! She is beautiful!

  64. 64

    AWWW i love her :)

    Re: @v@ – the 1987 isn't the year i was born. if you notice, their is a jb in my name. jonas brothers. kevin jonas was born in 1987. my favorite jonas, hence 1987. and being a teenager, i havent found anyway to lose weight that can fit my schedule or that is right for me. if you have a good way for a teenager, please let me know. and some of them might be concern, but if you still had your weight that you lost, you'd see some of them are hateful too.
