Okay, I have to go to bat for support of KIRSTY ALLEY’s new show FAT ACTRESS.
It is one of the most honest, uncomfortable, and hilariously SMART commentaries on ignorance and assumptions I have ever seen on television! I mean, on the surface it may seem just a really bad idea about fat people’s struggles, but it is so NOT that. It enunciates the hypocrisy, double-standards, stereotypes, racism, sexism, fatism, and many other obnoxious limitations we ALL have been exposed to. And to make things even more perfect, the show is just plain ridiculously absurd and stupid enough at times to keep it all mixed up. LOVE it.
Kudos to Kirsty. I don’t even think I was a real fan of hers before this. Now I find her to be one of the most courageous and funny women in television history.
It’s on SHOWTIME and SHOWTIME On Demand.
