Yes thickettes……she’s back! Poprah from “I Want To Work For Diddy” was nominated for Favorite Reality Villain by Fox Reality Network’s Really Awards (no surprise there).
Well congrats….**crickets** however I found this more interesting……….
Poprah has gone on to appear in 6 movies (3 lead roles), several TV commercials, and numerous national TV appearances. She’s also hosted her own talk show on the CW, which she also produced, beating several network shows in the ratings.
There’s no doubt that with her upcoming book release, Celebrity Encounters: ‘The Un-Supahead,’ her role on another national TV show airing this year, and her completion of her own reality dating show, “Big Girls Need Love Too”, that this young lady is destined to reach her goal.
Six movies? Can I get the titles? A book called “The Un-Supahead” (WTF!) I also need dates on the shows coming out “this year”….the same shows that were suppose to air LAST year, dammit I need proof! If it’s true congrats but for some reason I can’t believe Poprah and her entourage.
I had a very interesting debate with a “semi-celeb” and her comments made me realize that
A. This is what Skinny America thinks of us
B. Groupies & A** Kissers will do anything to be on a “celeb’s” good side.
One of my loyal readers emailed me the celeb’s twitter page and she was very upset. Â She didn’t know what to think of the celeb’s comments on her twitter page and why she posted these pictures that were very offensive to our community. So I decided to post the pictures and comments here……
She said – “You got to start somewhere—hey one step at a time folks. I can’t hate if you trying!”
Now here are some of the comments that followed
Good for her but I am forced to ask, was this posted as encouragement or to poke fun at someone. A Plus Size woman in Leopard…. You had to know what people would say.
Damn that’s sexy!
Yeah… but that animal print? I wanna throw a NET over her, turn her in to animal control
Pic # 2
She tells her friends -Â ”Let’s get back on our workouts so this won’t happen to us!”
Pic # 3
She said -Â ”I love chicken too-BUT all in moderation”
Here are some of the comments:
You keep doing you! Posting this doesn’t promote ignorance or start it, but it certainly can motivate someone to change for the better. If, people can’t see that, then THEY have the problem.
she put the picture out there.she is making fun of herself.maybe she is happy with her body type.
yep cuz u gettin upset for nothin aint nobody complaining about the skinny pic she got up so stop being insecure about it
did you not read what i said? i said that theres nothing wrong with being big/thick (as long as you healthy) but if you dont find this pic ridiculous just like the other pic of the xtra skinny dude then something is wrong with you sto
Why can’t you say anything? Because it’s people like the this guy with his ridiculous comments that’s the reason. You’re encouraging people to talk sh*t. That’s not motivating them!
its typical it aint politically correct so the fat b*tches start acting up nothing wrong with being big but if u cant see how ridiculous this b*tch looks than obviously something is wrong with you
lighten up! This picture is just ridiculous on so many levels! Why is that triking a nerve. She had NO problem taking the picture. She’s clowning herself The hair is the funniest thing out the picture. It’s not like Im making fun of big gir and why CAN’T I say something about it? I been on some “Encouraging people to live healthy tip” Lately & there is nothing wrong with commenting on this. It aint healthy! We got to TRY to stay healthy-RIGHT?
Um wow again was their a purpose behind this?
This could’ve been a fan of your shows. Heck she may be following you. In the future, blocking her face may be an option if she’s going to be put on blast.
She also made this commentÂ once she received backlash for her approach….
They say 5 out of 6 BLACK women R overweight-what’s wrong w/wanting 2 get that number down? We can do it! If I offended u-go RUN-let’s GO!
Now I put all ofÂ this to say that I do not promote obesity. I am allÂ for our thickettes staying healthy. However I will not tolerate someone who exploits our community.
People assume a lot about the plus size world and yes sometimes the pictures posted on the internet do not represent us well.
Clearly a woman in leopard print, one eating fried chicken while she walks and one who can’t button her pants was not placed on twitter to motivate people. As a matter of fact she didn’t begin to motivate until after she received backlash from myself and another thickette.
She continued to talk about “motivating” people to get healthy for damn near an hour after my response. Now if she didn’t intend for the pictures and comments to offend anyone, why continue the topic hours later and alsoÂ a weekÂ later? Sounds like someone felt guilty.
What do you think thickettes? How would you respond if you saw these pictures and comments?
FYI: The “celeb” who posted the picture was dumped by an athlete who is now married to a thickette. Can we say KARMA?
Breakout star Mo’Nique isn’t considered that “precious” by executives at Lionsgate, which produced her forthcoming film. In fact, as first reported by showbiz411.com, the 41-year-old comedian’s bad attitude and shameless demands for money may jeopardize her chance for Oscar glory – all this before the highly anticipated movie opens on Nov. 6.
The star was MIA Saturday night at the New York Film Festival premiere of the buzzworthy flick “Precious.” She also allegedly ditched her promotional duties during the Toronto Film Festival when she was denied a $100,000 appearance fee.
“That money didn’t even include hair and makeup costs. She also demanded that her glam squad fly first class,” sniped an incredulous industry source. “Apparently, she’s ignorant as to how the Hollywood system works.”
According to our snitch, exasperated studio chiefs suggested that executive producer Oprah Winfrey get involved to deflate Mo’Nique’s substantial ego, but even O couldn’t stop the actress from seeing green.
“Mo’Nique said she signed on to do this film for a small amount of money. She said she didn’t care about ‘no Oscar’ – all that mattered was ‘those Benjamins!’ Because Oprah and Tyler Perry are backing the film, she feels as though there should be a budget to pay for her promotional duties,” the source explains.
But the star’s attitude is starting to work against her. Winfrey and Tyler have reportedly instructed Lionsgate to put their promotional machine behind fellow stars Mariah Carey and Gabby Sidibe for the Oscar race. Those two are adept at playing the game; both turned up in New York and Toronto to push the film for free (although Carey, left, was 30 minutes late to Saturday’s Alice Tully Hall premiere and entered to boos from the audience in response to her tardiness).
“When people say, ‘You care more about money than winning an Oscar,’ well, what does an Oscar mean? An Oscar means more work when you win it, and that means more money!” retorts Mo’Nique in response to the allegations. “I couldn’t eat that Oscar. Everybody needs money, baby. That’s how we survive, right?”
Reps for Winfrey, Tyler and Lionsgate declined to comment, but the film’s director, Lee Daniels, was quick to say, “Mo’Nique is not a diva. She puts her soul into whatever she does. I love her very much.”
He does add, however, that “doing the press is hard for her because she’s in the moment.” (Source)
Great! Like we really need one of our own acting a damn fool. The last thing you want to do is piss of Hollywood and…….OPRAH! Hell Oprah can make you disappear! I hope this is just a rumor. What do you think?
