Life took over,” the queen of day time talk explained her noticeable weight gain. As the television host climbed in popularity so did her weight. “I started to get overwhelmed. I started to gain weight in February of 07.” She started to put the weight on, but said she was still okay because it was only the first five pounds. She started to worry more at the ten pound mark because she had moved up a size. Oprah admitted her weight gain is not a genetic issue but an emotional issue. An issue that she will be battling for the rest of her life.

Oprah shared that her she would put on the weight when her life was out of balance. She was getting little to know sleep, staying up looking at the clock, and trying to make her show even better. The important thing to remember is people love Oprah. Just because she has gained weight has not stopped her fans from continuing to support her. They want to see her happy and healthy, but that is different from not watching her show anymore because she is fat. You can be just as popular and well-liked even if you aren’t a rail. Oprah hasn’t stopped entertaining America just she has moved up a pant size. Don’t let your weight be the reason you don’t achieve your dreams.

CHRIS FARLEY – ACTOR “TOMMY BOY”

Chris Farley Famous Comedian Actor

Chris Farley is a famous comedian actor

Chris Farley is one of my favorite comedians. One of the main reasons I found him so funny is because he was fat. I don’t think he would have had the comedic excellence that he did had he been skinny. The Saturday Night Live star captivated audiences with his charming personality and his ability to make fun of himself. I might even go as far to say that fat comedians actually have an advantage over skinny comedians. The fat comedian can also pull out his/her arsenal of fat jokes where the skinny comedian simply can’t.
