I wish I could say this was an April Fool's joke...

...but it's not.
There is actually a show on the WE network called BULGING BRIDES . The W and E in the name stand for Women's Entertainment. Now, honestly, when are women going to band together and boycott things that are downright insulting to our gender? I have no problem with people trying to look healthy and trim in their wedding gowns, but every body's ideal of healthy is different. I resent it when women who don't look like models are made to feel like there's something wrong with them, like they aren't worthy of wearing a wedding dress, just because they don't look like some ideal. And I especially resent it when this depressing situation is packaged as "entertainment" for myself and other women.
