Mike And Molly Star Wants To Lose Weight

Hooray!

While we love the fact that Mike and Molly is pushing the TV envelope by casting two overweight people as the leads, we hate that it’s almost encouraging them to continue living an unhealthy lifestyle. And now it seems like co-star Billy Gardell agrees, and wants to drop some weight.

"I think [CBS] will let us drop some weight if we choose to," said Billy. "I think I am at that place, healthwise. But I don't have any blood or heart problems. I'm 40.I have pushed this long enough."

Billy says that he wants to ease into the weight loss and not rush into anything he can’t sustain.

"I have learned slow is better for me. I have tried every crazy (kind) of diet, and it works for two or three weeks then I snap. Now that I am making a little bit more money, I might get myself a nutritionist, maybe a trainer, and take it a step at a time."

We’re so happy he’s finally decided to take the plunge into weight loss!

Marie Claire Under Fire For ‘Fat Comments’

Marie Claire Under Fire For Fat Comments

Marie Claire is in trouble with readers.

Sex and relationship blogger Maura Kelly is getting a ton of grief for her post about CBS sitcom Mike & Molly titled “Should ‘Fatties’ Get a Room? (Even on TV?).” If that wasn’t bad enough, she concluded that yes, “fatties” should get a room because overweight people “gross” her out.

Here’s a brief excerpt:

“I think I'd be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other … because I'd be grossed out if I had to watch them doing anything. To be brutally honest, even in real life, I find it aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room…”

Yikes.

Many of the people who commented on the post are irate and promising to cancel their subscriptions, and some are even calling for a boycott of the magazine until Kelly is fired.

Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles is defending the blogger and her views.

“Maura Kelly is a very provocative blogger,” said Coles. “She was an anorexic herself and this is a subject she feels very strongly about.”

Kelly has since come out and apologized for the post and for being “insensitive.”

Do U think her comments were off base? Should she be fired?
