Simpson's music and sex-ier videos have always put pressure on Simpson to remain tooth pick then, but it seems her body had other plans.

Banks' ability to walk in hugely popularized fashion shows like the annual Victoria Secret Fashion Show, only proves to African American women around the world to embrace their bodies.

Monique never had time for the, "skinny Beyotches," and was never afraid to admit it either! From her stand up shows to her books entitled "Skinny Women Are Evil" and Skinny Cooks Can't Be Trusted, she has been quite vocal! What's not so known is Monique's journey through loss weight! After stepping off a scale one day with a weight of 262 pounds her husband politely told her, "Baby, that's too much, and I want you for a lifetime." That drove her plight to lose weight, with her vowing she would lose 60 pounds in hopes to getting down to a solid 200. Seems Monique hasn't done too bad, becoming a advocate for healthier lifestyles and proper eating habits.

    i am glad to see these women fight to get in shape and have a healthy life. I just find funny that when fat, they shout on rooftops how they are proud and happy to be fat. but the next tthing you notice, they are very skinny. live a healthy life but do not become extra thin becos it is unhealthy too.(take note: jennifer hudson).
