Ugly Betty

Wow.  Have you all seen this article about the woman who said she was hated for being beautiful?  I think its pretty amazing she has received so much flack for this article.  Here’s the article, if you haven’t read it. She’s been on NBC’s The Today Show, etc. defending what she had to say.  And then there was Barbara Walters on the View telling America that “she’s not that beautiful.”  Isn’t that what’s wrong with us women today? You should read some of the comments people have left this woman.  Holy mackerel.  As women, we shouldn’t be tearing each other down.  And I’m the first person guilty of this.  You see a model or an actress and immediately start to say, oh she has funny eyebrows or cankles.  Something to make yourself feel better.  And you know that if you saw this woman in person, you’d probably be stopped dead in the street by her good looks. You know the whole saying that the camera adds ten pounds.  It is completely true.  If you see some of these people in person, while they look like regular people on screen, in person they almost disappear.  They are so tiny.  Its almost that way with good looks.  We are so used to seeing beautiful people on television that someone like America Ferrera is labeled “Ugly Betty.”  Geez.  There may be no hope for the rest of the us non-movie star women.
