all of which represent what young women crave: "ostensibly 'real' people making life choices that a rutabaga would roll its eyes at and acting out like an alcoholic Veruca Salt, so the viewers feel better about their own crappy choices and piss-poor behavior."

"Fat Girl Revenge"
This is not another weight loss or makeover show, it's a series about settling the score after the pounds have been shed. Each episode follows two new inspiring and unapologetic women, who were once discounted, humiliated and rejected because of their weight, as they stand up to their bullies and finally get even. After getting healthy, these former 'fat girls' get the chance to live out their fantasies and seek payback against their former offenders from ex-boyfriends, former classmates to even members of their own families.


Or you know, maybe they could just be happy with their own achievement and not spend time pettily dwelling on past slights.

I'm shocked they didn't include "All My Babies' Mamas". The riveting tale of one urban man with 11 children, born to 10 women. And for an extra bit of love, he's currently dating a girl who's as old as his oldest child.

And not to be outdone, over at Lifetime they're starting a show about woman with ridiculously huge tits called Double Divas.

Told my roomate she should be on that with her big boobies. She was not amused. But I laughed so thats all that matters.

They even provide a helpful list of all the EPs, so if you're really determined, you already know who needs to be killed!

I think reality TV in general is a good faith attempt to fix society. They go to great length to show us the things that are terribly flawed and self-destructive in our world.

And we keep celebrating and imitating it.

I was going to go with @$$holes...but white trash works too. Sadly when people see folks like that on TV, who are being goaded and payed to act that way, they think its acceptable to act like that in real life.

That's usually code for "I'm an asshole and proud of it."

Nice. WE and Oxygen have been trying so hard to reinforce every negative stereotype about women in the last few years. They may have finally succeeded.

Can we can expect BET to counter with "Fried Chicken and Watermelon Pickers" and "Where All Dee White Wimmens At?"

Fat Girl Revenge sounds a lot like the MTV show "Bully Beatdown" aimed at fat women instead of weak teenagers.

Script for "Too Young To Marry?"

Girl: but momma, I luv him!
Mom: No you don't, it's your hormones talking!
Girl: but momma, I am gonna marry him, because I love him!
Mom: You're not getting married. You're only 14!
Girl: but momma I have to marry him. I'm preggers!

There are plenty of well-adjusted overweight people that just love good food, to the point that the stereotype is the jolly fat man or mother hen.

However, a significant number of men and women are not rejected because they are fat, they are fat because they aren't likable. They have poor socialization skills which leads to bitterness, depression, and self loathing. This leads to anger, poor eating habits and saps the will to improve oneself. These are the last people you want seeking revenge. In fact, Justice is a delicate thing to be sought and nurtured, but revenge for its own sake is never a good thing.

Revenge is a dish best served...between two grilled cheese sandwiches over a bed of all-you-can-eat onion rings!

"Fat Girl Revenge"? Didn't she already get revenge by becoming a billionaire pandering to stupid housewives with her incessant male bashing?

Somehow, I don't equate "Revenge" with being healthy. That's just me.

OR, we could do a follow up show about how all of those women eventually put all of their old weight back on.

Sweet. It could be from the perspective of the people who moved on from high school when Fat Girl Revenge came knocking and tried to make them feel bad.

We could call it "You're Fat Again, biatch! Ha Muthafarkin' HA!"

Optimal_Illusion: Somehow, I don't equate "Revenge" with being healthy. That's just me.


No, I equate 'revenge' with those women getting hot as hell, then posting naked pictures of themselves all over the internet, and sending them to everyone who made fun of their looks. Then they go into porn, to cement their new view of themselves as a sexually desirable person. Everybody wins!

/That is completely healthy behavior. Or my mother lied to me. But then, she was a crazy biatch who caused me to have an eating disorder. Wait. Goddamnit Mom. I knew there were no 40-year old porn stars.

They should start some other shows.

"forgiveness". People don't hold grudges and offer forgiveness to people who hurt them.

"being nice to everyone". This show focuses on people going about thier daily business and are nice to everyone they meet.

Heh. And then they can bring on the people that had revenge taken out on them, and then THEY can get revenge on the fat girl. Once that came as a box set of DVDs, I'd watch it.
