Valerie Bertinelli: Diet... Disaster??


First it was Faith by Redbook and now it's Valerie by Star. Chalk up another crime against the collective female self-esteem to the media.


Does anyone know what precisely it is that's disastrous about Ms. Bertinelli's body? Is this a hideous "photo shocker" because she has a tiny little *gasp* belly when she bends over? What I see when I look at this photo is a naturally beautiful, curvy, 47-year-old woman without pretension. (Or cellulite. Bitch!)


Seriously, VB's gorgeous. The media is getting to the point of ridiculous. The overt misogyny is disgusting.

Valerie is cute just the way she is,i guess you have to look like Paris Hilton or Nicole Ritchie to make it in the show biz world-Its sad. Hugs,

Apparently it's a diet disaster for anyone who fails to look anorexic. She looks like a real woman in this photo, and a healthy, attractive one at that. How many women would kill to look like that?

Sharon, sick isn't it?

Susan, I'll have to raise my hand for that one! VB is just as cute as she can be.

I have to agree with y'all on this. I dislike the way people look down on anyone that isn't super skinny. Valerie looks just fine and very healthy to me.

I HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT VALERIE WAS A LOVELY WOMAN CLEAR BACK SINCE SHE WAS ON ONE DAY AT A TIME.

Dani, it's irritating to say the least, isn't it?

Marcia, agreed. I loved that show when I was a kid!

Society or the media does not know how to appreciate a REAL woman. I much prefer curves vs. stick thin.
