Sometimes we link to your celebrity gossip stories in “Star Couplings” or “Quickies,” but we might not be doing that for awhile, or ever again, thanks to this little post. Yeah, we know that a lot of gossip sites making fun of and ridicule celebrities, but your post about Jennifer Hudson’s sister went way too far.

And I didn’t see a need for a special issue celebrating full-figured women because Essence seems to do just that on a consistent basis. One of the reasons I’m not a big fan of this lady mag is because each month they have a section on how to wear a certain outfit in any size. The problem is the first size is an eight. I’m no where near that size, so I felt excluded each time I picked up the magazine. I also, for the life of me, couldn’t figure out why a magazine would celebrate a lifestyle that could lead to health problems. According to the Obesity Society, black women and men have the highest prevalence of obesity than any other race or ethnicity.
