She shocked the modeling world this week by posing totally nude on TV for all to see on CBSâ€™ The Insider, weighing in at 169 pounds.
Calling her â€œPlus Size Perfectâ€ and â€œFull Figured Fabulousâ€ the media is taking a new look at how beauty is defined. With the constant message in the media that women can only be beautiful if they are skinny to the bone Nancy became determined to prove otherwise.
Coined as the â€œnext Anna Nicole Smithâ€, Nancy proudly says, â€œIâ€™ve always been happy and confident of my voluptuous body. I believe â€˜sexinessâ€™ and beauty is a state of mind.â€
There are over 8 million people in this country who are anorexic, bulimic or have eating disorders. Most of them are young women. â€œThe fashion industry and Hollywood have spread the MYTH that to be thin is in. The truth isâ€”a woman can be beautiful at any shape or size. Hollywood is finally realizing this and spreading a new message: itâ€™s okay to accept yourself just the way you are,â€ says Nancy Hayssen author of â€œYou Can Be Sexy at ANY Size!â€
â€œIn so many other cultures the feminine body is appreciated and adored. Only in the US has this distorted image of reality taken place through images seen in the media. Fortunately, this is all dramatically changing now.â€ Source
