They want her to do what?!?

I've never watched that show Gossip Girl, nor do I have any plan to, but I am aware that every girl on there weighs about 80 lbs. Well, apparently, it is believed that they told Hilary Duff to lose weight. Now, if this is true, they haven't officially said it because, as you can imagine, there would be a backlash against them for doing so.

As you can see, Hilary is in no way fat. Yes, she's not stick thin like the rest of the cast, which is the reason they want her to allegedly drop some lbs. According to them, "she won't fit in." WTF?!? Not to be mean, but there's always a bigger friend. Not saying that Hilary is the bigger friend, but rather she is more of what a real woman looks like.

On top of all this, Hilary is not someone you want to be telling to lose weight. She has had issues with her weight in the past. She was chastised for being too chubby in her younger days, then she was too skinny, and now that she's finally happy with her body, these producers want her to lose weight because the rest of the cast thinks texting is more important than eating.

What do you think? I personally think she should make a stand (being the first one to do so), put her foot down and say no to going on a diet just to fit in. All the girls I knew in school ranged in sizes from sticks to making the Earth shake. I've never seen anyplace where they're all the same size. They should let Hilary be herself, and get some more realistic size girls on that show. That's just me, though.

Dude, she won't fit in...The crack in the wall they use as a shortcut for entering the bathroom, so they can barf up the lunch they barely eat every day.

It's the truth, nothing at all mean about that.

she looks great and honestly I wouldn't become an unhealthy stick for some show.

I completely agree with you. she looks great and if America and the world don't get over this skin and bones stage soon....there aren't going to be any women to worry about their weight.

They will all die or be in the hospital by the age of 8 or 9 due to eating disorders!!

Come on skinny is not healthy. Just as obese is not healthy. Remember, moderation in all things!!

Argghhhh...this drives me crazy. The problem is, that all women need to make a stand. If Hillary says no to losing weight, they'll just say "Well, there are 1200 more girls behind you who are willing to starve themselves for this role."

It's gotten so bad, that even big names like Drew Barrymore and Kate Winslet have dropped the pounds and now look stick thin jsut like everyone else. If they don't have the clout to say NO, then who does?

This is really sad! Hilary looks bloody great just the way she is now -- after several years of looking like a skeleton. BUT, she really needs the work. Things haven't been panning out for her lately - so unfortunately it's gonna be hard for her to take a big stand here.

Sherry at EX Marks the Spot said...

Yeah, I have issues with weight also. Just not this kind. I'm worried about fitting in - in my clothes.

Mystery Man said...

C.B.- no, she won't. not really sure why she wants to go on there in the first place, though

Sandi- so, i'm not the only one that think so?

Shinade- welcome back to the blogging world!

Val- as always, well said

Celeb Girlz- at least she doesn't look like Skeletor, er...her

Sherry- we all have issues, but I doubt any of us have ben told to lose weight for a job, y'know?

She looks healthy and our society has to stop making women (particularly) feel bad about their body image if they aren't sickly thin.
