New BFD Page on Facebook

Tue, 01 Jan 2013 22:11:47 +0000

For current updates and discussion, please Like the new Big Fat Deal Facebook page. (The old group, BFDivas and BFDudes, is being retired.) I’m 15 minutes into Pitch Perfect, so in about an hour, I’m going to need everyone to come by and talk to me about Fat Amy. I hope everyone out there is [...]

Recommend A Crossbody Bag

Thu, 22 Mar 2012 22:52:27 +0000

Yes, it’s a BFD post! I’m hoping to get back into posting more regularly, and to that end, going through a slight backlog of e-mailed questions. Thanks for your patience (and feel free to re-send anything you’d like an answer to). Today’s question comes from Melissa, who writes: I need a cute crossbody bag for [...]

It Happened To Me: I Read

Mon, 30 Jan 2012 21:31:19 +0000

I will confess that I used to love Jane magazine and was very sad when it went out of print. (I sadly missed out on the whole Sassy thing, probably because when I was in junior high, I wasn’t cool enough for anyone to tell me it existed.) But I loved Jane. I know that [...]

Actor Gains 50 Pounds, Becomes “Much Funnier”?

Mon, 19 Sep 2011 21:55:56 +0000

Movie actors gain and lose weight for roles all the time. Remember when Russell Crowe gained weight for A Beautiful Mind, or Renee Zellweger did for Bridget Jones (and it was a way bigger deal because she’s a woman, even though she was a size ten at most, but that’s another story)? While Friends had [...]

Nordstrom Rack Fall Outfit Extravaganza

Thu, 15 Sep 2011 11:00:48 +0000

Armed with a gift card in my hand and Nordstrom love in my heart, I headed to the nearest Nordstrom Rack, in San Leandro, California, to do a little shopping. The first thing I noticed is that Nordstrom Rack does not exactly provide the full Nordstrom Experience. I’ve been to Nordstrom proper many a time, [...]

Say Yes To The Dress: Big Bliss

Mon, 05 Sep 2011 23:05:22 +0000

BFDiva Laurie sent me a very exciting email recently: she’s been chosen to be on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss. It is a spinoff of their Say Yes to the Dress series, and it’s about, as you may guess, shopping for a wedding dress. The Big Bliss spinoff focuses on plus-sized brides. [...]

Is Melissa McCarthy The New Ryan Reynolds?

Tue, 16 Aug 2011 20:25:22 +0000

When Kathy Bates got hired for Harry’s Law, I wrote a post with the headline “Role Written for a Man Goes to a Plus-Size Woman.” I thought of that headline immediately when I read that Jason Bateman, in his upcoming film ID Theft, pushed for the role of his co-star to be rewritten so he [...]

Wide Screen: Bridesmaids

Mon, 25 Jul 2011 19:01:33 +0000

melissa mccarthy , a photo by mo pie on Flickr. Character: Megan, played by Melissa McCarthy Credits: Before Bridesmaids, probably best known for Gilmore Girls and Mike & Molly, though she started off in the Groundlings. As far as her reputation among comics goes, this interview is worth reading. Plot points: Megan is one of [...]

Meet Mina

Wed, 15 Jun 2011 00:14:59 +0000

Wilhelmina Anne was born at 11:43 pm on May 17th. (She was born via C-section, 50 hours after my water broke in the parking lot of a movie theater after seeing Bridesmaids.) (Which totally reminds me to write about Melissa McCarthy’s character in Bridesmaids.) She weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces, and was 20.87 inches long. [...]

American Idol Keeps “Too Heavy” Girl Out Of The Front Row

Thu, 14 Apr 2011 14:03:35 +0000

Adorable 19-year-old Ashley Kauffman was separated from her skinny friends and told by an usher she was “too big” to sit in the front row of the American Idol studio audience. She had been given free tickets to attend the filming of American Idol and was understandably excited. But 19-year-old Ashley Kauffman’s joy soon turned [...]
