ELLE magazine is coming under fire for their four cover "Women In TV" issue featuring Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler, Zooey Deschanel, and Allison Williams. Here is a peek at all the pics. See if you can figure out the "controversy".
Apparently people are upset that Mindy is in black and white. Is that racist? Other folks are upset that Mindy (who is now the "regular" Hollywood body type) is only seen in a headshot and not same body shot as the "skinny girls". Is that size-ist?
I see those pictures and I see four funny, smart, talented, beautiful women. What do you see?
- My first job was as a "Soda Jerk" at Cone Corners in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. (Cheesy, huh?)
- Every spring, I participate in the World's Largest Trivia Contest in my hometown of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Out of about 500 teams and 10-12,000 players, we usually finish in the top 100!!! It's 54 straight hours of useless information and I love it. See? I'm not wired right. Just for the record, my team placed 73rd this year. :)
- I am a proud doggie mommy of "Spooner." She's a rescue who was an abused puppy mill mom. I am amazed at the FANTASTIC rescues and shelters we have in West Michigan. If you think you want to add to your family, the joy of a shelter pet in unparalleled!
- I was the lead singer in a cover band and I miss it.
