I haven't owned a TV since 2005 and hadn't a clue who she was. And I still don't care...but popular culture is relevant to many peoples' lives. Sort of like commenting on the weather - basically meaningless, but a uniting social theme.

Still, you took the time to open the thread and type a response.

5'8" & 154?

That's a little skinnier than I like, but I'd still hit it

But, according to her BMI and her height and weight, she is not even overweight, her BMI is barely 23.4, falling into the "normal weight" category (overweight is above 25), and her weight is in the healthy range for her height. So, no doctor would say she is even overweight, but still people call her fat. Maybe her very large breasts makes her seem bigger than what she is?

Anyways, i would be interesting to know the percentage that here thinks she is fat, and the percentege that think she is not, and how women and men vote on this.

I of course think she is not fat, i think her body ideal, though i do think her breasts are too big, but if she had less breasts she would have a killer body. However, she is not fat by any means, large breasts or not. She is also very beautiful.

So vote "yes" or "no", and "no" doesnt mean you think she is thin, just means you think she is not fat.

Sorry but I don't believe that she weighs only 154. I am 5'7", and there is no freaking way that she is only 12 pounds heavier than I am. Uh uh.

From what I've seen, perhaps a little, but not very much. Perhaps slightly fat.

Exactly. These celebs ALWAYS lie about their weight and clothing size. She probably weighs at least 175, maybe more. But she looks GREAT, and I do not consider her fat. As I said before, I am 5'8" and weigh a few pounds MORE than her but look quite a bit thinner. And my measurements are LARGER than her "supposed" measurements! So it just does not compute.........

I don't know if any of you watch The Biggest Loser but the women are always talking about how they have slimmed down and are now wearing size 10 dresses but the still weigh 180 pounds. My wife weighs 160 and there is no way in hell she can fit in a size 10 dress. There must be a special clothing line for women on television.

Nobody* thinks she's fat. But articles/threads that imply that someone, somewhere does always get a ton of hits. Marketing 101.

*by "nobody", I mean 99% of us. There's always someone who disagrees.
