    She’s done one movie. She doesn’t deserve to host SNL already.

    Good for Gabby! I admire her deeply, I think she’s truly gifted, and I wish her all the best.

    That being said, though — yes, her interviews have gotten annoying. That “giggly girly-girl” routine of hers is beyond cloying, and her public displays of her various “celebrity crushes” have become downright embarrassing. She needs to project an image of greater maturity and sophistication if she’s going to be a “role model” for girls or young women, regardless of their size.

    Nonetheless — she’s learning as she goes, and it’s no doubt a lot to learn for someone so inexperienced in the public eye. I hope she succeeds and thrives, both in acting and in life.

    This is all a sympathy thing.
    The fad will end quickly and she won’t be able to buy a job.
    Unfortunate for her.

    SNL after one movie? okay, but why the heck is she so fat? is she ill or just eats too much? I like her, but anytime I see her I can’t believe my eyes – lose some weight baby!!

    Well done Gabby……….. Howerd Stern make a comment……….. I dare you………

    p.s. By the way — it astounds me how no one has recognized the downright sexist nature of most of these comments about Gabby’s alleged health risks. How much does Cedric the Entertainer weigh? How much did Biggie Smalls weigh? Jamie Fozz’s snarkly little comment about “The Notorious Precious” illustrates perfectly the gender-based double standard in all this. Biggie used his obesity as a personal trademark; he even traded in on it for his name. And we all got the joke and went along with it, without thinking. But then, he was a man — he could do that.

    (I also don’t remember anyone making any similar comments about Orson Welles or Jackie Gleason, both of whom lived into their 70s and had long, varied, and successful acting careers.)

    jazzmanchgo Says:

    Uh — that’s “Jamie Foxx,” not “Fozz,” of course. (!!!!)

    Peter Says:

    She’s going to play the role of the whale in the new “Moby ****” film.

    Dog Lover Says:

    u must be a fatty

    ck Says:

    This gal can host, but someone like Kristen Bell can’t? Ok then.

    Allie Baby Says:

    @Dog Lover: I don’t know why, but that was funny as hell. Maybe because I’m hearing the voice of Stewie saying “fatty.” Yes, that most certainly is it.

  23. 23
    jazzmanchgo Says:

    Nope — I’m 5’10″ and I weigh about 180.

    I just think that there are a lot of other “issues” (i.e., biases) behind a lot of this Gabby-bashing. I stand behind everything I wrote above (including my criticisms in my first post).

    Kuddos for the mature comment. God knows not everyone here can be honest without being hurtful.

    Ilia Says:

    You need to get some. People are criticized every single day for how they look, what they wear, their sexual orientation, color of their skin, so on and so forth. She is in the public eye and people will express their opinion, and you need to chill. STOP clogging up the post with your self-indulgent nonsense. She is unhealthy looking, period! No amount of your bull-sh*t will change that fact!
