Fat chance

Read Karen Valby’s essay in defense of Melissa McCarthy in Entertainment Weekly’s July 4th edition and while it’s great to rail against McCarthy’s mistreatment by the media over her obesity I’ve never understood why anyone with wealth would choose to be so overweight. You recall my disgust at Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s inability, despite his vast wealth and resources, to seek help for his drug and alcohol problems…well, same goes for McCarthy. I don’t think Internet trolls and film critics should dwell on McCarthy’s obesity in such cruel ways, but if I had her dough I’d check into a weight loss spa pronto.
