I know I’m a sentimental fool but in this world that puts down and torments fat women, seeing Amber Riley win Dancing with the Stars, made my cry.
And then she said this:
And now she’s my hero. I love to see strong proud women open their mouths and voice the reality that your body shape/size/color should not hinder you.
Hell Yeah. GO Amber Riley go.
I don’t watch the show but I watched this clip and wept. Glad to see it. Glad to see her partner lift her off her feet. Glad to see her own her size. Glad to see a fat girl not apologize…
Susie – I so agree. You should watch some of the footage of the show. I didn’t watch it either – just clips, but she is so powerful. It’s really a pleasure to see. I adore her.
Now I’m curious if they made a big deal about her weight loss during the season like they have for other fat dancers in the past?
Since I only watched clips, I’m not sure – but that’s an awesome question. I’m going to do some research about that and get back to you.
