Why the Weight, Carla?

“There’s been an awful lot written about women’s bodies recently” wrote Carla Buzasi, the editor of Huffington Post UK, on her own site in September:

“All in all, that’s a lot of column inches devoted to fatness, thinness and everything in-between. No wonder we’re all so f*cked up about our figures. The fascination with bodies, celebrity or otherwise, isn’t exactly something new, of course, and shows no sign of abating. But here’s a thought: why don’t we just stop? Stop obsessing about the latest fad diet that doesn’t work. Stop gossiping over how many pounds the new Hollywood mother has gained/lost and in how much time. Stop trying to analyse why we care so much, and who we care for because it doesn’t appear to be the opposite sex…”

You’ll never guess what the Huffington Post UK are going with today:

“Natalie Cassidy has unveiled her new body after dropping two dress sizes, and doesn’t she look great? The former ‘EastEnders’ star has had a well publicised battle with her weight over the years, but she has now proudly showed off her new slimline figure on the pages of Now magazine. Speaking of her one stone, two pound weight loss, she told the magazine she felt ‘so much sexier’ after sticking to a 1,200 calorie-a-day diet and cutting out the carbs. What’s been amazing is I was my own diet boss so there was nothing faddy about it.Since having my daughter I’m not obsessed with being thin any more. My ultimate goal was to look curvy, toned and fit,” she added. Natalie, who shrunk to a just 7st 12lb in 2007 after making her infamous fitness DVD, has fluctuated with her weight since. I’ve never liked my body and those issues are still there, but I do feel sexier now,” she said. “My partner Adam asks me why I’m suddenly walking around the house in skimpy underwear!”

Seems Carla does not have control over her own website. She could put a stop to all this…

    Talking of not doing vs. doing not talking hypocritical, sheer front in the face of material like that, if this lady has not bumped Mehdi & Polly from BBC sofas from Today to Newsnight by year’s end, there is no justice in the land.

    I do not watch ” Eastenders”so I have no idea who this celebrity is. However it comes has no surprise to read that this ‘actress’ can get her clothes off at the drop of a hat.
    Please Guido- a little less boom-boom and bust-[38C?] . Politics these days seems to be passing you by.

    As previously stated, our editorial has very diverse divisions.

    Pundit too too says:

    The Brazil Bum Bum competions as in the Huff Post was a hoot showing lots of left wing hypocrisy. Unfortunately they did not seem to see the Brazil TV programme of this annual event.
    On that they totally missed the fact that the bum bum representativef for the state of Bahia was a tall blonde transexual with a very nice body and a deep voice. Worth watching as the woman commentator can dance, is good looking but knows it, and the male “entertainer judges” are just ridiculous.
    An additional attraction is that PC and wimmin’s lib people will hate it.
