Super Skinny


Seriously what is with the super skinny girls on television and movies lately? Sure, thin girls have always been in the media However, if you turn on Gossip Girl, 90210 or any other teenage drama you will find these super-tiny pint-sized version of teenage girls. Runway model skinny is just not a realistic version of what normal girls look like.

Blake Lively, who stars on Gossip Girl says she had to lose “serious” weight for the movie Elvis and Annabelle, she tells W. “I play a beauty queen who died of bulimia,” she says. “But beauty queens are still very toned. So, I lost weight, but got toned. It was the healthiest I’ve ever been!” Wow. Since when is a bulimic who dies considered healthy? What were you thinking Blake? Comments such as these are NOT role-model worthy. They are not healthy for Ms. Lively either. If she is not in therapy yet, perhaps she should be.

She is hot but having a younger sister who looks up to girls like this I can't believe she said what she did. I see my sister copy everything celebrities do (well, not EVERYTHING) but alot. She should retract what she said in this case for sure. It is NOT something I want my younger sister to know she said that is for sure!

I wish they showed more "real" body types on TV programs.
