Julianne Wotasik, The Fat Chick and NAAFA on the News!

I’m so excited to share with you a clip of an interview on Fox News in LA yesterday. Finally, a nice piece where we share our thoughts without a nasty comment or a smirk in sight. YAAAAAAY! This was an amazing experience and I MUST give a shout out to the amazing producer at Fox that put this together: Gerri Shaftel Constant. I feel so blessed that she made the effort to take our story in hand and shared it in such an intelligent and respectful way. This is a GOOD day!


Oh and here’s the evening recap with a longer video piece:

    In case anyone missed it, or can’t watch online, the story will re-air Monday at 5pm. (I’m really so happy y’all liked it so much– I think your message is important). Have a great weekend!

      Gerri – you have no idea what your support and respect mean to us. You have furthered the conversation without the hype – can I give a higher compliment to a journalist? Thank you thank you thank you.

    This was a good day, indeed, Ms. Fat Chick. And I couldn’t have picked better representations of fat pride, beauty, and brilliance. I am so proud of you all, so thrilled with Fox News for being humane and balanced (whoa!), and so honored to be a part of this group and this movement. I love you all.

    This is the breath of fresh air, a positive spin on fatchicks! To you ladies, Jeanette and Julianne; thanks for stepping up and being yourselves. Now, if we can get the rest of the larger population to do the same we’ll be halfway there.

    Plus a special thanks to FOX for running this.

    Pure awesome stuffed with awesomeness and covered in awesomesauce. I smiled through the entire segment, and when was the last time that happened when watching a news piece about fat people? Thank you!
