Ms. Melissa: WOW…this site

Ms. Melissa: WOW…this site is getting out of hand with the comments..Now we’re commenting on a 13 yr old’s weight and that she is fat and ugly??….and now ppl can’t have their scar’s on display??Nobody’s perfect…comments need to be about the fashion and thats it…Natasha r u monitoring this?? yuck. you really arent helping much. if she's only 13 then that makes it even worse. much worse. mofo aint been alive long enough to eat that dam much. had it been my child i would just stop grocery shopping altogether. unless they can OD on crayons then im not raising no kids that look like livestock. thats child neglect. i read it years ago & that book was sick. the father drinking the mothers breast milk and a bunch of other weird, scary, freaky shit going on. the story and that child need to be kept out of the spotlight.

I found that losing weight is

I found that losing weight is not that hard as anyone would think. It sure takes commitment and following a simple plan but the key element is persistance. You need to monitor the calories, lose the junk food, sodas, sweets and do some physical exercises. I myself love dancing. And remember to use a fat burner to accelerate the fat metabolism.

Of course, blame it on Mariah and Paula!?! Check the last photos from the red carpet where the whole cast looks AMAZING!!

And for those who said that

And for those who said that the movie is taking things back to the Mammy days in movies, it's not like that. She fits the description of the character in the book. The books description of Precious wasn't anything nice. Monique is probably going to be looking crazy too.

For those of you who have

For those of you who have read the book, 'Push' by Sapphire and said that you loved it, what did you like about it? That book truly disturbed me. The sex scenes in the book between the father in the daughter were really graphic and nauseating. It was like the worst of the worst situation. Both the father in the mother were insane. How was that good?

I see Precious is reviving

I see Precious is reviving the old Mammy stereotype, fat, black and ugly. She stands out that way in the picture where she's in the middle and the two extra-light, black, thin females are on each side of her. I hate movies like this.

I agree with Nicole to some

I agree with Nicole to some degree, however, many of you are saying there are no options for plus size clothing. That's just not true. Ashley Stewary, Lane Bryant and the Avenue have not closed their doors and even if she went to Simply Fashion for the low, if the matching up doesn't work, then the outfit won't go regardless. Gabourey Sidibe is a large girl and probably deals with that daily. You can be big and beautiful. On the downside though, please don't let anyone else get on the red carpet with the Payless esps on EVER again. Cute, but not red carpet gear.

garcelle is one of the most

garcelle is one of the most beautiful sisters in hollywoood and she gets picked apart about some scars?!? scars that if the flash from cameras wasn't so bright, you wouldn't even notice them?!? had the same ignorance about bey and that little scar that you hardly notice a few weeks ago. i think it's funny. the people commenting negatively would probably wear sweatpants in the dessert if the nicked their leg shaving and it left a mark. and as far as the young lady goes...yes she's big and needs to work on that. nobody's blind. we see that sh*t. but how about we watch the movie and comment on that and pray for her health. sitting up her like you're f*cking oprah or dr. drew, phsyco-analyzing people on a damn blog. keeping it 100, being born a black woman was the best thing that ever happened for me. but this is why i don't f*ck with other females very much.

I don’t know if they have,but some day she will relaize that she is going to die if she doesn’t lose the weight. The only fool I know is people that support fat like yourself! you don’t hav eto be crule to give someone a reality check. Ur stupid as hell...that's all I wanted to say. Thanks.

Dr.Giz: @BMWFirst, let me

Dr.Giz: @BMWFirst, let me start off by saying congratulations in losing weight. Due to the profession I am in (Biomedical Research related to obesity and cancer) I understand the health issues you have avoided by losing your weight. However, in combination to that, I also have a family member whom is overweight and in the process of losing. You may ask, how did I get her in the process of losing the weight? Well, it was damn sure not insulting her with the ridicule in which you are portraying on this blog. If you WERE an expert in the field in which you are trying to persuade others to believe is the only reason you made the ugly comments, you would have known that this is not the way to go about it. The main reason in which someone restrains from losing weight is because they feel hopeless in the fact that no one will care either way b/c all they have heard is criticism (from ppl like yourself); therefore, them losing weight will not make a difference. Since you are not going about it via the route of criticism, I have realized that you are only a bored attention seeking bully (since you’ve been commenting on this site for 2yrs now…good for you lol) that feeds off of other ppl’s reaction to your b*llsh&t and baby I can smell you a mile away. Yes, you are solely commenting on the girls looks b/c you wouldn’t have said anything if she wasn’t dressed the way she was and also if you were truly concerned about her weight you wouldn’t be commenting about it on a damn blog and actually trying to make a difference in her life. And, I’m guessing since you don’t know her, you don’t have access to her, so basically you just need to keep your silence b/c there’s no sense in you nonsense. So get a life, let go of the bs, and keep it moving honey b/c apparently she’s healthy enough to be in Cannes at HER movie premiere while you’re merely sitting at computer commenting about it….lol LMAO TELL EM GAL ALL DIS SUCKERS NEED SOME BIG ASS WHOOPIN

I see what BMW is saying and

I see what BMW is saying and she's just being honest.when I saw her pics earlier I thought the same thing but I wasn't trying to be rude and comment. Her comment may seem harsh but at the same time it's time for the black community to stop accepting these images of largness. I've been several different countries and I rarely saw a overweight person unless they were old, and they still werent big like that girl. It's the quality of life that sucks in this country and leads to people her size. I'm glad I never had any weight issues because I eat pretty healthy and stay active. I don't think BMW is trying to be cruel, she's just being honest. If we stop producing plus size clothing we would see people exercising to death. You know what happens when you're heavy and older, you suffer from constant pain and all types of diseases.

That's what I'm saying and she has worn sort dresses before and I don't remember this current mess...

novacutiepie: BMW is a damn

novacutiepie: BMW is a damn fool and so is anyone else who believes that putting people down is the same way to lift them up… Maybe your self degradation during your weight loss is what kept you going but it doesn’t work that way for everyone.I called it yesterday when Tasha first posted the preview that there would be ignorant comments about bigger women from people on here. But I’m glad to see the negativity is outweighed by the compassion in people. I think there are plenty of things they could have put on the girl without things hanging out or being overexposed for a 13 year old. But at least they did her hair and makeup well. girl please, |I mentioned women who were heavy and I think they are fine, but that girl in that movie is beyond normal! she is morbidly obese and killing herself.if anyone loves her they will tell her and offer her help.

I HELPED MY MOTHER AND COUSIN LOSE WEIGHT, PLUS THE PASTORS DAUGHTER I NEVER PUT THEM DOWN FOR A SECOND, I USED COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING. I THINK IT'S ASHAME HOW PEOPLE EMBRACE FAT IN THIS COUNTRY, and that's what pisses me off,especially when people claim being fat is healthy. you're a healthcare expert and you know the health risk. \Being over weight is a self esteem issue, and I can help you with the weight lose, but I can't fix your heart. I don't care if she's in cannes, because I also travel and she can live her life and be big, but it's not healthy. The reason we have so many obese people in this country is because we are killing them with kindness!

I honestly didn't want to see

I honestly didn't want to see "Precious" because I thought - here we go again, another movie about black people's pathology and problems.... however after reading the comments about the actress starring in the movie i can truly see that a film that shows the humanity of a young woman despite her complexion and weight is truly necessary.... i completely agree that overweight, especially grossly overweight young people need to lose weight. it is not health and in my view it's a form of self-medication and/or abuse. however, supporting anyone in that situation, or who is alcholic or drug-addicted doesn't start with shaming and abusing them.... just food, if you pardon the pun, for thought...

Mariah's dress is spandex? It looks like a knit or chiffon to me. Damn, I gave her props too. Gabourey looks fine to me. It's hot as hell out there and she's big as hell. It's not like she has many options and if she had her arms or legs out ppl would be talking about her fat and rolls. Let the chick live. She's starring in a movie her first time out the gate.

Jai'sMom I was never put

Jai'sMom I was never put down about my weight because almost everyone else around me was big also. I just got tired of shoping in the big girl section or alway being tired walking up a flight a steps! I was scared I would die because of my weight! I actually had people telling me that I didn't need to lose weight, now those same people who come to me when they want to slim down. I'm just a straight foward person because that is how people in my fam are. I was straight foward at a size 14-16 and I still am now! There is nothing sexy about a thin person who is unhealthy either!

BMW You're issues go deeper

BMW You're issues go deeper than the girl being overweight. You probrably have people in you life, be it be weight, drug or alcohol issues and you wouldn't tell an alcoholic that they are stupid, or it grosses you out. You'd only make them go to the bottle. I understand you're argument about her health, but it seems like you practice a lot of self hate. You were once a larger size, even though a size 12 or 14 can not be considered a big girl. And it seems like someone made you feel like shit when you were that size and now you think because it caused you to change your lifestyle that it will work with everyone. You have a right to your opinion, just respect others in the process. Yours truly, a big girl.

Nicole Youre the one who

Nicole Youre the one who sounds immature and stupid "There are big people who are healthy" that's all you needed to say to prove my point. When I was big I didn't have a single thing wrong with me.They ran all types of test, but that's just because I was young. Over time being wayyyyyyyy to big will make you sick and die a early death! I knew a chick who was the size of that girl in the movie and she died from a massive heart attack at the age of 43, due to her weight! so please come again! Cancer is not just based on your level of fitness, it could also be in your genes! Duh! that also made you sound stupid! My size 2 teaher passed away from breats cancer, but she smoked a pack of cigs every day! My mother was overweight and had high blood pressure, she slimed down and doesn't need her meds anymore and I can tell you several other stories of peoples health imporoving after weight lose. People in this country support an unhealthy lifestyle because they care about you being happy! screw being happy and lose weight! I knew thin people who are unhealthy and they need to go get with the program also. My uncle is thin and diabetic, but that's because he ate like a pig his whole life and drank like a fish! I support a healthy lifestyle for all! so you get that stupid!

BMW you are VERY STUPID!

BMW you are VERY STUPID! There are big people who are healthy. Also I knew this woman who was a health freak a damn gym rat ran everyday was a very thin woman then got cancer and died. Whose to say that being thin is "healthy" and big is "unhealthy"? Are there not thin people that are unhealthy? With diseases such as diabetes? I think you losing weight had nothing to do with the actual weight but how you feel about yourself altogether - you come across very nasty. Being formerly overweight you should be the first to understand the cruelty overweight people are subjected to. How do you not know that she is TRYING to lose the weight? Why do you have to be mean about your comments?

But ignorant a** people like you are what make it worse than necessary. Don’t try to make it sound like your rudeness is only meant to help. It doesn’t…You’re a biitch. You're a stupid bitch for accepting obesity! Nah! I wasn't upset when I was big because of rude comments,because nobody ever told me anything because half of them were big also. I just knew it wasn't normal to be that big. Anyone with sense would know that! You talk shit and don't even know the health risk of being that big! Keep talking shit, because it stinks and makes no sense. Stop supporting DEATH! you kindness is what kills people! if you were a nice person you would help your fat friends!

BMW: @Barack’s next internYou’re a real friend! That’s what friends should do. sometimes when plus size women try to look cute the clothing just doesn’t fit them correctly. At my largest I was a 14-16 and I wore cute outsfits that fit my body type, but I yearned to have better health and clothing selection. It’s like some think chicks think they can wear anything they want, but that is not always true. Yes I agree you should look fly while sliming down, but not foolwangish either. You’re a good friend and support her till the very end. I apologize if my message comes out cold hearted, but I just hate to see people at that size because I know how it felt like being a big girl, and it wasn’t always fun. A big part of the reason being a very large person is not fun is b/c of rude, a**holes like you. Sure it's not healthy, and that's something she should take care of.

Sunscreen may help though they have chemicals galore in them, but she may just be naturally dark. She may also just be big boned. Big or not, broke or not, something new or borrowed to go with her blue/black skin would have helped her look.

Nicole: I really think the

Nicole: I really think the comments about that girl who plays Precious is unnecessary. I’ve never and will never understand how people who don’t even know a person go out of their way to insult them on a blog while they are living their life and starring in a major motion picture. I swear they do it for the attention. I won’t even name the lames who have responded numerous times just to make fun of this girl. She isn’t the prettiest or the thinnest - but so what? And her outfit is not that bad. What do you want her to wear? A outfit like Monique wears? Legs and arms all out to criticize her for that also? Many stars themselves in the beginning of their careers didn’t look to glamorous at first. Ease up on the negativity. I can agree however with the statement about at that size what can she really wear. She is short and overweight/obese. She doesn’t have many options. THANK YOU for this post. You're absolutely right.

Lenny has on a tank top and

Lenny has on a tank top and stretch pants yet no comments were made on why he isn't dressed up. The young woman playing "Precious" is a newcomer and probably didn't know any better or just wants to be comfortable. If she had on tons of unflattering makeup or squeezed into something ill fitting there would be negative comments as well. I guess she can't win either way. I am just so happy that my favorite book is now a movie and will leave my judgments for the finished product.
