The oh so holy health nuts who are trashing this show miss the point. This show does not advocate obesity or unhealthy behavior--it does advocate loving yourself and having self confidence in a world where being undernourished and thin is worshipped.
It is funny how many people jump on Monique and her show but say nothing in regards to the modeling, pageant, and movie industries where being underweight is championed. Those industries support a behavior that is just as unhealthy as being overweight but no one whines about it.
If you are going to damn Monique, than damn these other industries too! Large people have existed since the beginning of time and to even compare these people with drug users is absurd.
I am so proud of Monique and the beautiful women of her show. What a trailblazing show for women who would otherwise be ignored in the traditional modeling and pageantry world.
Congratulations to the winner.
