  • Um, what show were they talking about? Was this the Marie Claire blogger referring to Mike & Molly, and admitting that she had never seen the show?

  • That is referring to Mike & Molly. No, I do not think it glorifies it. People like to nit pick over everything.

  • Yes I think so. I thought it was hilarious that they would have even thought that...

  • It's obvious that the blogger had never seen the show, because they met at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting.

  • I'm overweight, and I really don't think there is anything you could do to make fat look glamorous to me...

  • its all how you percieve it , some will take it that way some wont , i am comfortable with a show that supports accepting how you are and being healthy , glorifying obesity no , i have been obese and i have been thin and in between to me its all about your mental state if its not truly a medical condition truly
