Shonda Rhimes Talks About Her 100 Pound Weight Loss

Shonda Rhimes steps out on stage during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Monday (November 9).

The 45-year-old Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy creator opened up about why she was inspired to lose over 100 pounds throughout the last year.

“I got on an airplane, I was going to NY from LA and it was first class and it was going to be really comfortable. I got in my seat, I took off my shoes, I got out my book and I went to buckle the seat-belt and it wouldn’t buckle and I thought to myself, something is wrong with the seat-belt, its broken,” Shonda said. “But it wasn’t the seat-belt it was me. And I thought when I can get a seat-belt extender or I can die and not get a seat-belt extender, but maybe the plane will crash or I fly outta my seat, when we take off and I decided I will risk it and fly outta my seat and not say anything.”

    I wish more air travel passengers would reflect on how obesity affects other passengers and not just themselves. By not wearing a seatbelt out of vanity, Shonda endangered herself and other passengers… if they had hit turbulence, she might have been ejected out of her seat. I don’t understand why the FA let her ride without using the extender since all passengers are required to be belted for take off and landing, even in first class.

    Anyway, I applaud Shonda for realizing she had a problem, and doing something for her health and welfare.
