Happy to be fat!?
Electricity
morphiagoddess wrote in fatshionista
So I was over on MTV.com because a co-worker of mine was yacking about the new Tila Tequila show, A Shot at Love, With Tila Tequila. That's a whole other story though! LoL

Anyhow, I was talking to her about the other show True Life. So I mosey-ed on over to the casting calls for the show. Ya know where they post what upcoming topics will be and you can apply with your photo and story to be on the show. Let's see what I found...

True Life: I Need Anger Management

True Life: I'm Schizophrenic

True Life: I'm a Southern Belle

True Life: I'm Happy to be Fat...

What? So they're going to do a show on Fat Acceptance? Somehow I don't see this thing being positive. I mean, granted the description below sounds like it might have a positive ring to it. But something about this just seems wrong. Something sounds like it's going to just mock a fat person. I dont know.



True Life: I'm Happy to be Fat

Are you overweight but comfortable with your body type? Do friends and family urge you to lose weight but you don't listen? Do you appreciate the feeling or appearance of being fat or do you like to date men or women who are overweight? Do you want to increase your weight? Have you set a goal in bodyweight or size that you're trying to reach? Have you encountered health problems or risks while trying to reach your goal?

If you appear to be between the ages of 18 and 28, and are happy to be fat, email us at: fat@mtvstaff.com with all of the details.

Please be sure to include your name, location, phone number and a photo, if possible.



What do you guys think? Are any of you going to email this staff to try out? Or do you think that it's all just fun and insults?

Oh, and you know.. I know how this show ends up. My highschool was the one in True Life: Prom Night. They butcher everything you say and turn it into whatever they want to hear. I dont know about this. Any comments, arguments.. etc??

I feel fat, but not happy today.

I have to say that I LOVE True Life. Love it. I mean you haven't really experienced quality tv until you've watched "True Life, I'm a Staten Island Girl"

On their previous episode, True Life, I'm obese, they had a fat positive woman on it who was trying to be a model and was kick-ass in going to modeling calls that didn't ask for plus-size women. Her story wasn't such a problem.

you haven't really experienced quality tv until you've watched "True Life, I'm a Staten Island Girl"

This one is excellent but I really, really love the one where the guy gets calf implants (I think it's "True Life: I Want Plastic Surgery" or something like that). That one brings the LOLz every time because seriously. Calf implants.

Better than.. getting your knees done! lol :P

Calf implants guy is amazing - "now I'm a 10" Everyone always mentions that.

OMG the calf implant guy is the best!! Gawd I wish I had TV/cable so I could watch True Life again...

I liked the Jersey Shore Girls episode too.

OMG the Staten Island Girl was hilarious!!

Anyways I digress, I do remember they did a "fat" episode - I think the girl ended up having a gastric bypass. They didn't do it in the best of light, but it really wasn't horrible. I know for me it was eye opening to what her struggles were.

I think with this episode they are trying to find more chubby chasers, etc. Which is sad because fuck it makes me feel like a freak.

No, two other ppl in that episode got WLS, but one woman was quite comfortable with her body, loved herself, was trying to be a model and never once mentioned WLS.

I remember that episode. I liked her. I thought they did a good job with her story - she didn't come off looking like a "delusional fatty who thinks she's cute who is she kidding" like you might expect. She totally got a modeling gig at the end, too.
