Life in the FAT Lane

By Steven Bowersox

“Susan Powter and Howard Stern  Versus Gabby Sidibe”

I am an a obese American man, and I have literally tried every diet out there, including “Stop the Insanity” by Susan Powter. I was a huge fan of hers, and her encouragement to release the thin inside and the empowerment that goes along with losing weight. Having said that, I have to say that I am truly saddened and disappointed by her most recent vlogs on youtube. I know that they are simply a means to an end for her to get back into the limelight, because frankly her career is dead, but what she said was brutal and she is siding with HOWARD STERN of all people.

Howard Stern and his sidekick Robyn (an African American overweight woman in the entertainment industry) attacked Gabby Sidibe on Stern’s morning talk show. Howard Stern was relocated to Sirius radio after his content became so vile that it couldn’t be played on national radio.

This is what Howard Stern had to say about Gabby:

“There’s the most enormous, fat black chick I’ve ever seen. She is enormous… She really should have gotten the Best Actress award… What movie is she gonna be in?”‘Blind Side 2.’ She could be the football player, take out the whole front line… It’s so sad you want to say to her, listen honey, You’re gonna die…”

Frankly I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that Howard Stern (one of the ugliest men I’ve ever seen) said these things or his side kick Robyn agreed and encouraged him. While I was disgusted I wasn’t shocked that Howard Stern said these things, it’s the kind of person he is.

What came out next is what was truly shocking to me, Susan Powter long time member of the weight loss world made a video encouraging and approving of what Howard Stern said. These words filled with hate were not only agreed with but encouraged.

Susan Powter has this to say in her vlogs on youtube:

“The message being sent out by the NAAFAAAAA is so incompletely incorrect and disconnected from the truth that every fat person knows… there is nothing good about being that weight… Gabby your weight affects every part of your life, your weight CHILD is going to affect every moment of your day, let alone your career… stop denying what is, Howard is telling the truth. Gabby dear here’s the thing, you are way to young to be this diseases… you can be fat and anything you would like to be, your chances are less in most industries in every part of the world…”

Howard is right? Seriously? Howard is right in attacking her and saying that she could be the star of “The Blind Side 2”? Howard is right saying that people need to tell this young woman “you are going to die”? I have always been a fan of Susan Powter’s because of her strength and the fact that she encouraged losing weight for yourself, and how much better it will make you feel. The fact that she encouraged Howard, and agreed with him that it was ok to attack this girl based only on her looks is horrid. Susan Powter, you are fucking insane! Everyone always thought you were crazy, but now you’ve just convinced even your fans that it’s true.

Gabby is a young, strong, black woman who has so much more talent then you could ever dream of having. I don’t care what size her waist is, the fact is she is a better person inside and out then Susan Powter and Howard Stern combined could ever be.
