    Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your post.

  • I don't see her as being ridiculed, there are children like that everywhere, a lot of them outgrow it.

  • i think it's about teaching lessons, like having acceptance of other's no matter their size. i think if she were my daughter i would get her help for her weight before i put her on tv

  • I don't think she's being humiliated. They aren't making fun of her size or anything. Just trying to highlight the differences between her and Gaby. On another note...Gaby is way too vain to allow one, let alone two, kids be overweight. She'd never let them develop those eating habits in the first place.

  • I see what you are saying but NO. The girl is an actress getting paid & happens to be over weight & fits the part.
